Hype has been steadily building for Horizon Forbidden West, the Guerilla Games title that will build upon the success of the 2017 release Horizon Zero Dawn. Now, a new trailer helps us learn more about this upcoming game and its exciting cast of characters.
Matrix fans will enjoy seeing Carrie-Ann Moss playing Tilda, a character who is just as fashionable as she is mysterious. Angela Bassett plays the character Regalla, though we don’t get a chance to see her in the trailer. The trailer does, however, show us Noshir Dalal portraying Tenakth warrior Kotallo.
In the trailer, Moss dishes a bit about what it was like to bring the world of this game to life. “I play this very interesting character named Tilda who is quite a dynamic character,” she says. “As an artist, there’s a lot of freedom in doing something like this. You get to be in the moment, getting thrown direction from the director, getting to try it over and over again. I felt like creatively, it was a lot of fun. There’s a lot of mystery to her — I don’t want to say too much — but she’s an interesting character and I loved playing her.”
What motivates these characters? It looks like Kotallo is trying to make peace between different Forbidden West tribes. The character Aloy gets into hijinx after running into Kotallo, and the character Sylens is something of a mysterious wild card driven largely by ego.
We’ll know a low more once this title launches for PS4 and PS5 on February 18.
