Guerrilla Games was highlighted during yesterday’s State of Play, starting with the first trailer for Horizon Call of the Mountain, a PS VR2 exclusive. The game, co-developed with newly acquired Liverpool studio Firesprite, will feature an all-new protagonist called Ryas.
The world of Horizon is spectacular up close. In Call of the Mountain, you’ll see it through the eyes of Ryas, an ancient Shadow Carja warrior who hopes to redeem himself by investigating a grave new threat to Sundom. He’s a master of rock climbing and archery, two essential survival skills as you step into his shoes, scale perilous mountains, and take down mighty machines like the Thunderjaw.
Throughout your journey, you’ll master various tools and weapons, and use the world’s many materials to craft additional gear, equipping you for any situation. But you can’t do it alone. Along the way, you’ll meet new and old Horizon characters, including Aloy herself.
Along with the game’s main story, Call of the Mountain will also offer an exciting and immersive River Ride experience. Sit back and enjoy the magnificent view of the world from Horizon, but be careful; some uninvited machines may try to get on board! The River Ride is the perfect way for a gamer using the PS VR2 headset to share the magic of PS VR2 with friends and family while watching on a connected screen.
Guerrilla Games has also announced the availability of a major free update for Horizon Forbidden West, launching in February on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Update 1.14 adds much-requested features like a New Game+ mode, an Ultra Hard difficulty mode, the ability to change the appearance of the player’s equipped outfit to look like any other outfit (colloquially known as transmogrification) and re-specifying skill points. That’s not all, as the developers have claimed to have improved their implementation of TAA to improve visual fidelity on the PS5’s Performance Mode and PS4 Pro’s Render Mode.
Guerrilla also said they are working on another Horizon Forbidden West patch which will add VRR support and a 40FPS mode.
