"Whether you've been with us and Aloy since Horizon Zero Dawn or are only just getting to know this incredible world, we want to share this huge milestone with you and cannot wait to see your favorite moments and reactions."

Horizon Forbidden West takes Horizon Zero Dawn's protagonist Aloy to the west coast. The land is dying, and is hurtling life on Earth towards another extinction, and no one knows why. It is up to Aloy to uncover the secrets behind these threats and restore balance and order to the world. Along the way, Aloy will reunite with old friends, forge alliances with warring new factions, and unravel the legacy of the ancient past. She must do all of this while staying one step ahead of a seemingly undefeatable new enemy. 

Horizon Forbidden West will release for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game currently does not have a release date.
