A new State of Play presentation broadcast today showed off 14 minutes of the game in action.
The footage shows some of Aloy’s new moves, including the ability to use a new grappling hook and shield glider, as well as a diving mask that lets her stay underwater for as long as she likes.
Players can also override some of the game’s machines and mount them for faster travel or combat.
Horizon Forbidden West started development soon after the first game’s successful release and was originally planned for PS4 before focus shifted to Sony’s next-generation console, VGC’s sources said.
The sequel has protagonist Aloy exploring the new frontier, which stretches from Utah in the USA all the way to the Pacific Ocean in the West. According to Guerrilla, players will explore deserts, valleys and ruined cities full of iconic landmarks.
Horizon Forbidden West will feature “dozens” of new machines, as well as peaceful and hostile tribes. As revealed in Horizon 2’s debut trailer, one of these tribes has discovered how to override machines and use them in combat.
A red blight is also infecting the lands of the Forbidden West, choking wildlife and starving tribes, while the weather has spiralled out of control.
