Guerrilla Games wrote a long article on the PlayStation blog about the machines that will appear in the years to come Horizon Forbidden West.
Some Zero DawnRobots like the Watchers and Snapmaw will return Forbidden west. However, Guerrilla said it is adding unique new machines to the catalog now that it has the opportunity to explore ideas that are in Zero Dawn.
“While Horizon Zero Dawns development, we had a lot of ideas – of course not everything could come into play, but now with us Horizon Forbidden West We were able to combine some exciting ideas that were previously not possible with new and interesting concepts, ”said chief machine designer Blake Politeski.
Politeski revealed that Sunwing was born out of guerrilla’s desire to have a flying machine larger than the Glinthawk in the first game.
“We studied various flying reptiles and primitive birds for inspiration and developed the concept that their wings collect solar energy in sunny weather,” he said. “This in turn created an interesting gameplay dynamic: Sunwings are vulnerable when harvesting solar energy, but are also more vigilant to potential predators when they are idle.”
With new enemies come new challenges, but rest assured, Aloy will have new skills, abilities, and equipment to complete these challenges.
“Aloy has many different types of guns and ammunition available, and she will need them all to hit the various machines!” Said Asset Art Lead Maxim Fleury. “Without spoiling anything, every machine has several ways of being defeated. We tried to make it clear to the players through the machine design and added textures to show the weak points or interactive components. You have to examine each machine closely to find different approaches to it. “
Horizon Forbidden West will be released on February 18, 2022.[Source: PS Blog]
