Aloy and his pals are finally back after five long years at Horizon Forbidden West and we’ll be streaming the start of the game on Twitch from 2:15pm ET!
Who will host such an event? We have a great show for you today, with Alex Stadnik on the field, Ben Reeves echoing his experience in the game and his usual brand of street comedy, and Kim “KStar” Wallace gives our opening two hours Her impressions. Ms. Wallace conducted the official Game Informer review, in which she said:
“Horizon Forbidden West reaches a new high bar for Guerrilla Games. It not only surpasses its predecessor; it takes Horizon’s novel to a fascinating place and builds a rich world that rewards the kind you put into it. Work hard. For the most part, it’s a fun experience, complete with jaw-dropping moments and unforgettable fights.”
For those unfamiliar with the Horizon series, the game’s star Aloy is a hero born to save the mechanical world from its past sins. Our protagonist delves into the history of this world to learn about her connection to the woman who kept her alive at great cost thousands of years ago, and how that connection makes her the only one on Earth who can stop a new mechanical apocalypse. Forbidden West continues the story with a host of new and familiar faces, vastly improved combat and movement systems, and some of the best graphics we’ve seen on PlayStation 5!
Can’t get enough horizons before the game’s official release?We’ve got you covered with a video version of Kim’s great review, a full cover hub with stories about developer Guerrilla Games’ latest experience, and the latest episode of in-depth conversations about the game Geographical Indication Exhibition!
