In the lead up to E3 2021, Sony revealed the first proper look at official gameplay for their upcoming sequel, Horizon Forbidden West. We didn’t get a release date unfortunately, but we did get a look at the stunning new graphics on the PlayStation 5 console. But how much has the sequel improved over the last one? Luckily, we have a comparison video to showcase just that.

Thanks to ElAnalistaDeBits on YouTube, they have created a comparison video between the new sequel Horizon Forbidden West and the original Horizon: Zero Dawn. Both games are available on the PlayStation 4 platform, but the new entry also takes advantage of the next-gen hardware of the PlayStation 5. Take a look at the comparison video below:

What’s interesting about the comparison is HFW will be coming out on both the PS4 and PS5, which the recent gameplay demo was shown off on the latter hardware. We still don’t know what the PS4 version will look like, but the improvements from the PS5 version are very significant to say the least.

What do you think? Are you excited about Horizon Forbidden West? How do you feel about the graphics comparison video above? How much better does the sequel look? And what do you think the PS4 version will look like? Let us know!

Are you excited for Horizon Forbidden West?

What do you think of the graphical improvements above?

she definitely looks uglier (but that's personal preference), if the game releases on PC, I'm sure some mods will be able to fix that

I don't think that is 100% personal preference, it's pretty normal to not find attractive unhealthy looking people.

director dev stated they felt that the feminine look of the professional model didn't portray the strength they wanted to demonstrate for the heroine,
they claim by adding weight and masculinity to Aloy's face, they added the look of strength and intimidation

But then make her body more muscular, not the face, that's the exact opposite of what is needed. Think of Red Sonia in comics for example, feminine face, quite muscular body.
