Gamers rejoice! Guerrilla has come bearing gifts in their Gamescom announcement, revealing that their new title Horizon Forbidden West is finally launching on February 18th, 2022. Pre-orders will open as soon as next week, starting on the 2nd of September. Moreover, Guerrilla revealed that their smash hit Horizon Zero Dawn is now available for play at 60 FPS on the PlayStation 5, a feature that many fans had desperately asked for.

The second instalment of the Horizon series, Forbidden West had previously been pushed back into 2022 due to COVID-19-related delays as director of Guerrilla Games Mathijs de Jonge revealed during the Gamescom Opening Night live stream. He stated that new work processes had to be organised as their developers moved to home office environments. Wanting to keep the level of polish of their game to a high standard, the team had made the call for delay despite their initial plans to launch in 2021. 

Moreover, Guerrilla Games revealed Horizon Zero Dawn would finally be available to be played on Sony's PlayStation 5 at 60 frames per second, a standard which many other titles had set after upgrading their initial PlayStation 4 titles to the new generation console. The feature had been requested a lot by fans as the fast-paced gameplay obviously lends itself to the higher FPS ranges and would make for a smoother experience. The studio revealed that the new updated version would be available effective immediately on your PlayStation so no more wait time is needed.

The story of the Horizon series revolves around main protagonist Aloy whose inquisitive nature gets her into a lot of trouble, but also in possession of powerful technology that helps her navigate the post-apocalyptic environment of the 31st century in the United States.

Machines suffering from a phenomenon called derangement have taken over most of the planet and have taken shape of common animal types that the player has to fight against. Humans on the other hand have reverted to tribal culture, trying the old ways to not repeat past mistakes of introducing sentient robots to the environment. As Aloy grows into a full-blown hunter and warrior, she has to solve the mess that her ancestors have left her in.
