Horizon Forbidden West’s latest trailer has revealed some of the new beasts you, as protagonist Aloy, will have to face.
And by face, we mean run rapidly away from – because, let’s face it, anyone who’s tackled Horizon Zero Dawn has had a lot of close encounters with the machines that dominate this post-apocalyptic world. Yes, they have weak spots, but it’s hard to focus on shooting them in the appropriate place when they’re bearing down on you.
The new mecha-beasts are as follows:
- The Slitherfang – it’s a giant robot acid-spitting snake.
- The Rollerback – an armoured beast that seems to be able to bolster its own armour by absorbing metal. Also, the Slitherfang is a giant robot snake.
- The Sunwing – a flying, pterodactyl style mech that can recharge itself from the sun. Did we mention that the Slitherfang is a GODDAMN GIANT ROBOT SNAKE?
Yes, we’re a little worried about encountering the Slitherfang, not least because, as the trailer helpfully informs us, it’s designed to kill. We’ve got a little while to gather up the courage to face one, however, as Horizon Forbidden West isn’t out till February 18th 2022 when it hits the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
You can check out the trailer above which, be warned, may contain a giant, humongous robot slaughtersnake.
