The future of the Horizon saga
Recently, Guerrilla Games multiplayer Horizon art and gameplay was leaked that anticipated its graphic style similar to Monster Hunter and Fortnite by presenting a more cartoony look with more colorful maps than those seen in the released games and characters of different styles, each of them carrying a type of weapon, but with the same mission: to shoot down a Thunderjaw. However, this is material from the year 2020, so it could differ from the final unannounced product.
Beyond the expansion of Horizon: Forbidden West and the PlayStation VR2 game, Guerrilla already confirmed that he was working on new “solo adventures” with Aloythis possible online game that will introduce a new cast of characters and a “unique stylized skin” and a new “external project” of which nothing more has been detailed yet.
Of course, Horizon Call of the Mountain will serve to see how the saga works with a new character, although Guerrilla Games is already confident in the potential of the saga to take it to more genres. Are you interested in his proposal for virtual reality?
