Guerrilla subtly confirms a new Horizon game as its studio director moves on

Though don’t expect to see anything anytime soon. To the surprise of no one, Guerrilla Games has basically confirmed that another Horizon game starring Aloy is on the way. Earlier today Guerrilla Games shared a blog post announcing that studio director and executive producer Angie Smets is leaving the developer after 20 years to join PlayStation Studios as head of development strategy. The post obviously wished Smets well in her new role, but it also pretty nonchalantly confirmed that Aloy will be returning for another Horizon game at some point. “We have full confidence in our new leadership as they…

Horizon Forbidden West review: Another beautiful string to Aloy’s bow, despite some open world drawbacks

You’ve just slid under a robotic elephant’s tusk as it tried to gore you with the entirety of its 10-tonne-plus weight. Some of your flowing red hair caught the tip of its kevlar tusk. But that hasn’t phased you; you look up, pull out an explosive spear and jam it under the beast’s jaw. A dodge roll to safety, a quick sprint behind a nearby knoll, and a look over your shoulder tells you it was a clean hit – the resulting explosion took the beast’s plated armour clean off. You notch an arrow to your bow, concentrate as you…

With the inclusion of these technologies, the UI has been updated so that the settings screen facilitates the addition of DLSS and FSR. Another UI update sees the removal of the Render Scale option. But, the same result can now be accomplished by adjusting setting Upscale Method to Simple and…

Whether you were wandering around snow-capped mountains marvelling at its mechanical wonders or trekking across the plains ducking behind rocks to avoid being picked off by avian machines, the world always felt like an integral part of the role-playing experience. It’s something the developer is eager to ensure remains in the follow-up, Horizon Forbidden West. In a new PlayStation Blog post…
