Horizon Forbidden West’s big, PS5-exclusive expansion, Burning Shores, is out next week on April 19th and that means we now have a shiny new launch trailer to set the scene before the new content drops.
The Burning Shores launch trailer might only be a minute long, but it’s already packed with exciting implications – not least the closing shot of Aloy staring down an active Horus machine, the enormous and should-be-dormant titans that played a key role in the apocalyptic events preceding the world of Horizon as it is now.
Fans will know just how big of a deal is going to be both from a narrative and gameplay perspective, but it looks like Aloy’s not going to be ill-equipped for it. In the trailer we get another look at one of the new machine types, the Waterwing, which is able to carry Aloy both in the air and underwater. We also see Aloy wielding Zenith weaponry which should hopefully be the edge she needs in this untamed post-apoc version of L.A. There are new characters, returning faces from Forbidden West and even Gilden, who last appeared in the Frozen Wilds DLC for the first game.
Take a look at the Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores Launch Trailer below:
Travel beyond the Forbidden West as Aloy’s story continues. Encounter new machines and a compelling new story.
South of the Tenakth Clan Lands, millennia of volcanic eruptions and violent seismic activity have carved the ruins of Los Angeles into a treacherous archipelago.
Experience the next chapter of Horizon Forbidden West as Aloy pursues a sinister new threat to the planet, hidden among these dangerous, untamed wilds.
Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores is out on April 19th, exclusively for the PlayStation 5 version of the game, for $29.95.
Players will need to have the base game, and have finished the game’s main questline up to and including the final mission, Singularity.
