Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel to the highly anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn in 2017, which will finally land on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in February next year, and PlayStation seems to be increasing its marketing efforts for the game.
That’s because a week after the new trailer for the 2021 Game Awards was released, Guerilla Games released Another trailer, This time let us better understand some of the new machines we will fight against in the game on February 18, 2022. This trailer called “The Machine in the Western Forbidden Land” gave us a closer look at the armadillo Rollerback, the flying pterodactyl-shaped Sunwing and the Slitherfang robotic snake.
“In the Western Forbidden Zone, awesome machines rule this land,” the trailer’s description reads. “These technologically advanced robots have become the dominant species on the planet and pose a serious threat throughout Aloy’s mission.”
If the trailer shows any signs, the three enemies shown are either found in the flatter areas of the west or, in Slitherfang’s case, along the beaches that used to be California. The trailer also revealed some new features of the robot dinosaur. For example, Rollerback seems to be able to reinstall armor that was knocked down by enemies such as Aloy. Besides, Slitherfang is huge—like, really big, we are not afraid of having to fight it at all…not at all.
We also revisited Tremortusk, which was shown a lot in the previous Horizon Forbidden West display. This is the elephant-like machine we have seen before, but in this trailer, we see it not highlighted on the beach, but in a snowy area.
While waiting to watch more horizons of Forbidden West, read how the open world of the game “feels more vivid and real than ever before”, and then check out this story about how battles and explorations in Forbidden West emphasize player choices.
