While Aloy will be making new friends in the Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores DLC expansion, she’ll also be making new enemies. Developer Guerrilla Games ends the Burning Shores launch trailer with a bang, showing Aloy facing off against a Horus machine.
Horizon Forbidden West Horus fight teaser
Despite there now being two Horizon games featuring Horus machines, Aloy has never been given the chance to take one on in combat. This might be due to the fact that the Horus is a world-ending machine that would surely destroy Aloy with next to no effort, but it’s still a battle that many fans no doubt want to see.
Well, in the Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores expansion, Aloy will somehow go up against a Horus and, presumably, live to tell the tale. Perhaps that interesting new weapon attached to her arm is responsible for her survival? Maybe that’s a powerful Horus-destroying weapon that we haven’t seen before.
Players won’t have to wait long to play the new expansion as it’s set to launch on April 19, exclusively for PS5.
If you want to play the Burning Shores DLC when it launches, make sure you’ve beaten the main story!
