Horizon Forbidden West star Lance Reddick, who plays the character Sylens, has returned to the motion capture studio. In a Twitter post since deleted, the acclaimed actor wrote: “Hard at work in a session for Horizon Forbidden West.” In the photograph, the star is wearing a motion capture suit and has marks on his face for facial capture.
It’s not the first time we’ve heard about actors from Guerrilla’s sequel returning to the studio. Earlier in the year, social media sleuths discovered that both Peggy Vrijens and Louis Van Beek – both of whom worked on Forbidden West – were shooting scenes at the same location. Of course, a DLC expansion wouldn’t be a huge surprise: Horizon Zero Dawn also added the surprisingly dense Frozen Wilds roughly a year after release.
With the PS5 and PS4 game continuing to top the charts around the world, Sony will no doubt see a huge opportunity in upselling existing owners – and to be honest, we wouldn’t say no to more of Aloy’s outrageously beautiful post-post-apocalyptic world. Sylens didn’t play a particularly huge role in the main campaign, so it’d be good to see him take on a bigger role in this currently unannounced add-on.
