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.

    Introducing Our Launch Line-up of Next-gen Xbox Accessories, Coming November 10

    On November 10, we’re jumping into the next generation of gaming with Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. To ensure the most optimal next-gen gaming experience, we’ve created a new lineup of Xbox accessories, developed with you, the gamer, in mind.

    New Options for Your Next Controller

    We’ve introduced the new Xbox Wireless Controller in Carbon Black with Xbox Series X and more recently, Robot White with Xbox Series S. Additionally, this November, we’re providing three more options so you can choose the controller that best fits your personality and gaming style.

    First up is our new Xbox Wireless Controller in Shock Blue – a vibrant new hue, not yet seen on any of our previous controllers. The striking blue top case is accented by the bold, black hybrid D-pad and ABXY buttons and softened by the crisp, white back case for an eye-catching look. Just like the new Xbox Wireless controllers in Carbon Black and Robot White, our new Shock Blue is optimized for next-gen game play.

    Xbox Accessories Gen 9

    ­­­For our fans who prefer to game on PC, we’ve updated our PC controller bundles to include the new Xbox Wireless Controller in Carbon Black. Choose between the Xbox Wireless Controller + Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 bundle for freedom of movement, or play connected with the Xbox Wireless Controller + USB-C Cable bundle.  You can also connect these controllers to your PC with Bluetooth.  With these updated bundles, you get the same controller refinements that you’ll find with all the new Xbox Wireless Controllers, so you can elevate your game no matter how and where you choose to play.

    These new controllers feature a more-inclusive, ergonomic design and performance-boosting updates now standard on all new Xbox Wireless Controllers. Textured grip on the bumpers, triggers, and back case keep you locked in and on-target, while the Elite controller-inspired hybrid D-pad enables greater precision with easier access to diagonals and sweeps. With the new integrated Share button, you can capture and record your most epic or meme-worthy moments right from your controller. Then post them to your favorite social media platform from the console dashboard or the Xbox app without missing a beat. You can pair your controller to devices including Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and mobile devices and quickly switch between them, while Dynamic Latency Input ensures a more responsive, almost instant gaming experience. For the best possible experience, visit Xbox Support or log into the Xbox Accessories app to install the latest firmware update before you dive in. To learn even more about the design innovations in the Xbox Wireless Controller, check out this interview with Senior Designer for Xbox, Ryan Whitaker.

    We’ve also refreshed our rechargeable battery solution and are introducing the Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable. Plug in the rechargeable battery and fully charge your controller in under 4 hours before, after or while you play.

    Xbox Accessories Gen 9

    The Xbox Wireless Controllers in Carbon Black, Robot White, Shock Blue, the PC controller bundles, and the Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable will be available beginning November 10 in nearly all Xbox markets worldwide. We’ve worked hard to give you improved controller features and experiences at the same $59.99 USD starting price as our previous controller, which also plays all games on Xbox Series X|S. The Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable will be available at $24.99 USD.

    If you’re eager to lock in your next-gen setup or upgrade your Xbox One or PC setup, you can pre-order all of these accessories beginning September 22 at 8AM in your local time (8AM PDT in US). Pre-order an Xbox Wireless controller in Carbon Black, Robot White, and Shock Blue or the Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable and have them delivered to your door on November 10, so you can play on their release date without ever leaving the house. The Xbox Wireless Controller + Wireless Adapter for Windows 10, Xbox Wireless Controller + USB-C Cable and any Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable kits pre-ordered from Microsoft Store will ship on November 10. Check your local retailer for product availability and specific pre-order timing in your region.

    Xbox Design Lab

    Since its launch in August of 2016, the Xbox Design Lab program has grown and evolved from basic color customization options and engraving to include patterned top cases, metallic accents, rubberized grips, and even licensed NFL team logos to offer over a billion possible color combinations to fans. We’ve loved seeing the unique designs you’ve created and how your design inspiration included games, special moments in your lives, sports, and even favorite shoes shared through #XboxDesignLab across social media. As we look ahead to a new generation of Xbox accessories, Xbox Design Lab is also preparing for its next evolution. Beginning October 14, Xbox Design Lab will be going offline temporarily so that we can bring you some updates, returning in 2021.

    The personalized nature of the program has always made Xbox Design Lab controllers a popular holiday gift, but because it won’t be a gifting option this holiday, we encourage you to think about your gifting plans a little earlier than you might otherwise. If there’s someone on your list who has been eyeing a particular design or would love one personalized by you, be sure to place your order by October 13. Or, if you’ve been on the fence about a custom controller for yourself, now’s the time to order.

    Xbox Accessories Gen 9

    For more information on Xbox Design Lab’s next evolution, stay tuned to Xbox on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

    Whether you’re upgrading your current setup, adding to an existing collection, or starting a new one, we’re as committed as ever to bringing you options and giving you choice in how to game with Xbox. We’re diving headfirst into the next generation of gaming and look forward to seeing where it takes us.
