Horizon Forbidden West on PS5, PS4 Is ‘More of the Things People Loved About Zero Dawn’


In terms of sequels, there’s maybe only one that we’re looking forward to more than Horizon Forbidden West – and that one’s got Kratos in it. It’s fair to say that Guerrilla Games nailed its transition from gritty sci-fi shooters to fantasy role-playing games with aplomb when it released Horizon Zero Dawn in 2017, and it sounds like its PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 sequel will delight series fans.

“The new areas that Aloy is traveling to, the tribes that she’s meeting, and the story that unfolds […] I got a primer on it all before recording for the game, where the writing team took me through the arc of the story and it was like being a kid at a campfire,” beamed retuning voice actress Ashly Burch as part of an interview with Games Radar.

“I’m just so excited for it,” she continued. “I’m also a fan, so I’ll be in recording sessions and we’ll be recording a scene and I’m like, ‘I can’t wait to do this fight or I can’t wait to explore this area!’ All of the things that people loved about Zero Dawn – the gorgeous world, the immersive story, the awesome gameplay – Forbidden West is just more and better.”

Burch added that progress on the project is ongoing despite the global pandemic. “I have a record [for Forbidden West]later this week,” she teased. “It’s going – it’s still happening!” Whether or not the title hits its previously announced 2021 release date, of course, is up for debate – but it’s good to know that the title is coming together, and we can’t wait to see more.
