Horizon Forbidden West continues Aloy's story from Horizon Zero Dawn, taking her to America's western frontier. Players will explore a post-apocalyptic Californa and visit locations like San Francisco and Yosemite National Park as Aloy tries to discover why the planet is dying from vicious storms and a creeping blight. There's also a new seeming invulnerable enemy that Aloy must find a way to defeat.
With these new threats looming, Aloy must once again find and stop them before it's too late. She must reunite old friends, forge alliances between warring factions, and save the world from itself.
The land is dying. Vicious storms and an unstoppable blight ravage the scattered remnants of humanity, while fearsome new machines prowl their borders. Life on Earth is hurtling towards another extinction, and no one knows why.
It's up to Aloy to uncover the secrets behind these threats and restore order and balance to the world. Along the way, she must reunite with old friends, forge alliances with warring new factions and unravel the legacy of the ancient past – all the while trying to stay one step ahead of a seemingly undefeatable new enemy.
