A short trailer was shared, but details on Horizon Call Of The Mountain have been limited. A blog from Sony has said:
“We don’t want to reveal too much just yet, but this story will be told through the eyes of an entirely new character. You will also meet Aloy, other familiar faces, and new characters along the way, and we’ll be introducing you to the protagonist of Horizon Call Of The Mountain soon.”
There is no release date for Horizon Call Of The Mountain, but the next entry in the series, Horizon Forbidden West, will be available on February 18. The game is a direct sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn and will see Aloy venture into a whole new land, complete with unique machines that haven’t been seen in the series before. This includes the Slitherfang, a large robotic snake whose attack patterns will evolve during the fight.
In other news, Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckman has said that the studio is working on multiple game projects. There were no details on what these projects could be, but Naughty Dog has recently been recruiting talent with multiplayer experience.
