Grab your bows and arrows, people! Guerrilla Games, the Dutch video game developer known for their Killzone franchise, has recently confirmed that they are in the process of developing the highly-anticipated third installment of the Horizon series. If you’re a fan of open-world action role-playing games, then you know that Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West have been massive hits since their respective releases. Yosef Fares, the founder of Swedish video game development company Hazelight Studios, revealed in a recent interview that “Horizon 3 is currently in development.” Although there is no official release date for the game yet, we can expect that Guerrilla will pull out all the stops to make it worth the wait. In this blog post, we will discuss everything we know about Horizon 3 so far.
The Horizon series is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humans live in tribes and hunt robotic creatures. The previous two installments were well-received by gamers and critics alike, with Horizon Zero Dawn scoring a 9.3 out of 10 on IGN and Horizon Forbidden West being highly anticipated with pre orders selling out within hours of becoming available. With such resounding success, it’s only natural that fans are eager to learn about Horizon 3.
Based on the previous games in the series, we can expect that Horizon 3 will have a massive open-world to explore, with a multitude of side quests and activities to partake in. The combat system will likely feature the use of bows, arrows, and elemental attacks against unique and powerful robots. The game’s story, written by Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West writer, John Gonzalez, is expected to be just as compelling as its predecessor’s.
As for the game’s graphics, players can anticipate a beautifully rendered environment that showcases the latest advancements in technology. Guerrilla Games’ previous titles were known for their jaw-dropping visuals, and we can expect nothing less from Horizon 3. The game will likely take full advantage of the PlayStation 5’s hardware to deliver a stunning experience.
One area where we hope to see an improvement in Horizon 3 is the game’s multiplayer mode. Although Guerrilla Games has not confirmed whether multiplayer will be available in this installment, we can safely assume that the developer will be listening to the feedback of fans who have been pleading for online co-op features.
It’s an exciting time for Horizon fans as we await the release of Horizon Forbidden West, which is set to release on February 18, 2022. Knowing that Guerrilla Games is already working on Horizon 3 is sure to fire up fans even more. With its massive open-world environment, stunning graphics, and compelling storyline written by an experienced writer, we can expect that Horizon 3 will be just as thrilling as the previous games in the franchise. Fingers crossed, we hope to see improvements in the game’s multiplayer modes, and we’re eager for Guerrilla Games to reveal more details about this highly anticipated game.
