Sony’s this year’s State of Play will feature a 14-minute exclusive segment just for showcasing Horizon Zero Dawn Forbidden West Gameplay on the PlayStation 5.

Horizon Zero Dawn Forbidden West is the sequel to one of PlayStation 4’s most hit titles. The PlayStation 4 exclusive has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, and the Horizon Zero Dawn complete edition has been given away ahead of Forbidden West’s release for free on Sony’s Play at Home initiative.

The sequel was first announced eleven months ago on the previous year’s State of Play. Since then, the hype and anticipation for the sequel’s release has been growing among players. Therefore, it is a matter of joy that this year’s 20 minute State of Play event will have a 14-minute segment dedicated solely to showcasing the game being played on PlayStation 5. This is what Horizon Zero Dawn’s game director, Mathijs de Jonge had to say:

“During this State of Play, we will debut the Horizon Forbidden West gameplay reveal! In this 20-minute exclusive segment, you’ll be seeing about 14 minutes of brand new in-game action featuring our heroic protagonist Aloy, all captured directly on PlayStation 5. This reveal has been a true team effort and we’re very excited to show you what we have in store. Whether you’ve been with us and Aloy since Horizon Zero Dawn or are only just getting to know this incredible world, we want to share this huge milestone with you and cannot wait to see your favorite moments and reactions
