Horizon Forbidden West: Meet The Cast Of Guerrilla Games’ Upcoming RPG In New Trailer

We’re closing in on the release of Horizon Forbidden West and PlayStation is releasing more and more about the game. Yesterday, Guerrilla Games released a new Forbidden West story trailer, and you can check out some exclusive details we learned about it after talking to the team, and now the studio has released a special “meet the cast” trailer. It begins with an introduction to protagonist Aloy’s voice actor, Ashly Burch, who explains that Aloy had to step into a new role as the hero of the world. She also touches on the more adversarial aspect of Aloy and Sylens’ relationship. And speaking of Sylens, Lance Reddick is returning to voice the character last seen in the post-credits scene at the end of Horizon Zero Dawn. He talks about Sylens’ egomaniac personality and how that shapes his relationships in Forbidden West.  Click here to watch embedded media We also meet Kotallo’s voice actor, Noshir Dalal. Both newcomers to the series, Kotallo encounters Aloy at a time when his life is in major crisis. Kotallo’s chief envisions a peaceful alliance in the Forbidden West and it’s Kotallo’s mission to champion his chief’s cause. Joining Kotallo as a new character in the world of Horizon is Tilda, who is voiced by Matrix alumn Carrie-Anne Moss.  “I play this very interesting character named Tilda who is quite a dynamic character,” Moss says in the trailer. “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.” Next up is Varl, voiced by John Macmillan. As Macmillan notes, Varl has been on a “heck of a journey.” He says the writers did a great job of evolving the character in Forbidden West as he’s more mature and more willing to challenge Aloy when needed. Erend, voiced by John Hopkins, is back too. He talks about Aloy’s disappearance at the end of Zero Dawn, which sets up a fractured relationship at the start of Forbidden West. Macmillan and Hopkins said their relationship as Varl and Erend evolved quite a lot in the game as the two are the new main allies of Aloy.  We also get a few glimpses at some new concept art for Forbidden West, which you can view below:  Click image thumbnails to view larger version                                                                                                               While waiting for Horizon Forbidden West to hit PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on February 18, read what Guerrilla Games had to say about the game’s latest story trailer and then head to Game Informer’s Horizon Forbidden West hub, which features all kinds of new details from this month’s cover story.

    iFixit's Apple Watch Series 6 teardown discovers larger capacity batteries

    Apple Watch Series 6

    When Apple announced the Watch Series 6 the other day, the business understandably spent plenty of talking up the wearable’s new sensor for measuring blood oxygen levels. Nonetheless it turns out the most recent Apple Watch includes a handful of smaller enhancements hidden underneath its new sensor.

    When it sat right down to disassemble the wearable, iFixit found both 44mm and 40mm Series 6 models have bigger batteries than their Series 5 counterparts. The 44mm variant includes a 3.5 percent higher capacity battery than its Series 5 equivalent, as the 40mm model comes with an 8.5 percent larger power cell. The larger energy stores don’t may actually affect battery life an excessive amount of since Apple still claims 18 hours usage about the same charge, enjoy it did with the Series 5 just.

    Another component that’s bigger in the Series 6 may be the Taptic Engine. This right time around, it’s also created from completely recycled rare earth metals and tungsten. In late 2019, Apple said it could start manufacturing the iPhone’s Taptic Engine from recycled components. Year later one, it’s doing exactly the same with the Apple Watch.

    The teardown highlights removing Force Touch also. The feature was known by us was coming out when Apple released the watchOS 7 beta in June, but iFixit’s teardown confirms the component that enabled the gesture is not any longer within the Apple Watch Series 6. From the repairability standpoint, iFixit notes removing Force Touch makes things easier.

    “We’re pleased to visit a fragile, damage-prone part retired, but sad to start to see the final nail in the coffin for Apple’s nifty pressure-sensitive display technology,” the business said. “We’re torn, but we’ll call this a win.”

    The final result of most those tweaks is that the Series 6 is slightly thinner compared to the Series 5. It measures in at 10.4mm thick when compared to Series 5’s 10.74mm. For that blood oxygen sensor Apple talked so much about, iFixit wasn’t actually in a position to go on it apart. “Fused display at the top, fused sensor array on underneath. We’re not gonna find not broken pieces if we bust this apart.”
