Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores expansion has been a joy for players to explore for themselves, and as is so often the case, a completely surreal experience for the real humans involved to see in motion. Such was the case with Kylie Liya Page, the actor who lent her likeness, mocap performance, and voice to the new character Seyka.
Further, Page reveals that Seyka's distinctive high ponytail was added to the game after developer Guerrilla Games inquired as to how she normally wears her hair. Thankfully, Page has a defined sense of personal style, which includes a haircut unlikely to go out of fashion, and is one that works in Horizon's future primitive setting.
It's pretty cool to see, and we simply can't imagine seeing our own mug alongside Aloy's. In unfortunate but related news, Metacritic is changing some of its policies in response to Burning Shores' current spate of review bombing, though the reason why is quite a spoiler. Would you like to see your own hairstyle, on any given day, immortalised forever in a video game? Book that haircut you've been putting off before descending into the comments section below.
That hairstyle is the feminine equivalent of the curly undercut. My haircut is already immortalized in Yakuza 7. Now THAT'S a haircut.
Damn that tv so far away would drive me nuts. Sorry. Looking forward to getting this but have to restart HFW as I stopped playing and forgot the plot.
That is cute. I’m of mixed opinions about face scanning when it is an exact replica (I love that the Horizon characters are inspired by but are not their VA’s twins) but it’s neat how little quirks like that become part of a character. Makes them a little more human. I’m nowhere near ready for the DLC but looking forward to the whole experience! I do wish that games would tone down non deliberate eye darting though.
Adorable! Thank you for bringing some positive vibes through posts like this.

@Fishnpeas gaming is mainstream, but its even more mainstream now, so yeah this kind of stuff is news...
women can have attractive hairstyles somehow in a "post-apocalyptic" but cant be attractive themselves, lmao.
@nomither6 This game is high fantasy though. It is not meant to be realistic. If Ellie suddenly started going around like Kylie Jenner then that would be a different story.
@Fishnpeas Yeah, it is true that a lot of modern gaming "journalism" is basically a Twitter post or an advert, like so many Nintendo Life articles (from the front page at the moment):
Stop the press...ponytails 😂
That's a cute story ^__^ gotta say Seyka is now easily my favourite character in the series I love her to bits and can't wait to see her again in III Aloy you got a keeper here don't let her go ^__^❤️❤️❤️
A whole article based on a tweet and a ponytail.
@GreatAuk More substance than the CMA's ruling though! (joking, plz don't start console wars in a ponytail story, anyone!)
