New Horizon Forbidden West Trailer Is All About Challenges & Upgrades

A new gameplay trailer has been released for Horizon Forbidden West and it’s all about the challenges and upgrades.

In the stunning gameplay trailer, we see our hero partake in a number of activities such as combating deadly machines, testing her hunting skills, and tracking down rare machine parts in the wilds.

By taking part in the various challenges, you’ll be able to acquire new upgrades for your weapons and gear. Overall, the trailer gave us a good indication of just some of the side activities that will be at Aloy’s leisure in the upcoming sequel.

In Horizon Zero Dawn, we were already able to track down rare machine parts in the form of a treasure hunting quest. Furthermore, we were also able to test our skills in the Hunting Grounds. However, it looks like we’ll now be able to test our combat skills against the deadliest of foes in a gladiator-style arena.

Oh look, it’s that snake again!

During a glimpse of what we can expect from the gladiator arena, we once more saw the giant, menacing snake creature. Though I suppose there are at least no giant spider machines, right?

In Horizon Forbidden West, Aloy faces her biggest threat yet. A deadly plague has swarmed the lands and will destroy everything within its grasp. With the help of her friends, Aloy must venture into the Forbidden West to learn more of this deadly threat, and hopefully, put an end to it once and for all.
