Burning Shores, the expansion for Horizon Forbidden West, is only a couple of weeks(ish) away now, and developer Guerrilla Games is finally peeling back the curtain on what we can expect.
In a new social post, the studio has shared the following video, showing brand new footage — and a brand new machine:
The Waterwing is a flying/swimming mount that looks to be loosely based on a pelican. More importantly, Aloy can use it as a mount, which means you can fly through those beautiful, PS5-only clouds as well as dive into the waters surrounding the ancient ruins of Los Angeles.
It's looking lovely — we really enjoy the vivid colours of Horizon's world — and we can't wait to dive in ourselves. What do you think of this new clip of Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores? Dip into the comments section below.
Nice. Aloy was not so fast underwater despite a decent amount of question marks there. Would be nice to move faster and to scare some fishes.
Wow looks great can wait to dive in!
Less than a month to go!
Got it locked and loaded.. this will mark the first time I come back to a game months after beating it to play the DLC.. I’m stoked
Woah a water based mount?
I can't wait
Very cool looking. Nice to see the newer hardware finally being utilized to deliver more ambitious gameplay potential.
Very cool looking! I like how it seems like they are designing this DLC around flying. In the base game it was awesome when you first got to fly but there wasn't much content left after you got the ability. Looking forward to it!
What is this sorcery?! Insanity 😱
HFW already reinstalled and Burning Shores preordered. Had a bit of a warm up on my platinum save for a quick showdown with the giant mammoth thing to get used to the games controls again
I still haven’t played the base game; steelbook has been sitting on my shelf since last summer. There are legit too many games 😅
Oh, don't go plugging the new machines. Let us be amazed when we encounter them in-game. 😞
As much as I loved HFW, there wasn't really any feeling of wonder when encountering new machines for the first time, because they'd already been outed.
It's inevitable that people will start plastering it all over social media when it releases, but they can be largely avoided; when the devs do it and all the news outlets start writing about it, it's tougher to do.
Leave us something to marvel at, dammit!
I couldn't get into Forbidden West when I played it last year but having just finished the original FF7, I'm considering giving the game another go as it dropped on PS Plus and the DLC is coming out soon. Maybe it will click with me this time. I've had trouble getting into Xenoblade Chronicles 1, Astral Chain, Persona 3 FES and other games before they all grew on me
They remembered it exists!!
Now THIS is Podracing!
Much more impressive than clouds.
Played HFW to exhaustion when it launched. Had forgotten how gorgeous it looks. Was on the fence about pre-ordering... but not anymore!
@Korgon Nicely noted, I didn't realize that. Hope you are right!
@Korgon probably going to be flight combat too, especially since we supposed to fight that giant machine from the reveal trailer.
The base game is on sale at them moment (until 12/04), so might have to finally pull the trigger on this
@NEStalgia Is it hypocritical of me to finally be happy they are promoting this but not watching it because I don’t want spoilers? 😁
swimming mounts > clouds
I will get it day one. Can't wait to experience more of Aloy's story. Love that world!
@rjejr Nah, I'm doing the same. I wanted to see it as promoted as their otHer Big intellectual prOperties, but don't want to see it too spoiled for myself either.
This is the best looking game in the world imo. Never saw clounds, diving, lightning and vegetation like this in any other game.
Thanks for the reminder that I should start playing thru Forbidden West soon!
@NEStalgia what existed? no spoilers though...i'm still playing
My god, just look at those clouds!
GIVE ME THIS AT ONCE.
