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.

    Bring Dinosaurs to Life in Jurassic World Evolution 2, Available Now for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S


    • Jurassic World Evolution 2 is out now for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
    • Features over 75 awe-inspiring prehistoric species.
    • Chaos Theory lets you control iconic movie moments.

    Welcome to a world evolved.

    I’m thrilled to share that our much-anticipated dinosaur park management simulation is out now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Building on Frontier Development’s much-loved 2018 original, which enthralled players across the world, Jurassic World Evolution 2 promises a deeper, more dynamic dinosaur park management experience. Namely: more awe-inspiring prehistoric species, more incredible modes, and more ways to both make and manage your ultimate dinosaur park. Here’s why you’ll want to play Jurassic World Evolution 2.

    Firstly, we’ve added an all-new mode set to put you in control. It’s called Chaos Theory, and it sees you take charge of classic moments from across the “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” film franchise. What happens when you’re tasked with realising John Hammond’s dream of an operational Jurassic Park, working to ensure the successful building, and running of this iconic destination? How will you fare creating and managing the new Jurassic World and avoiding the mistakes of the past? Each scenario plunges you into a pivotal event from the franchise and puts you at the heart of the action in these ‘what if’ scenarios.

    Another compelling addition is the campaign mode. Learn what it takes to be a park management master in this compelling and original narrative following the earth-shattering events of “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” You will join forces with Cabot Finch as well as iconic franchise characters such as Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard) and Dr. Ian Malcolm (voiced by Jeff Goldblum), to help lead the efforts of the DFW (Department of Fish and Wildlife) through mainland USA, establishing new facilities across a range of locations to control, contain, and conserve wild dinosaurs.

    In total, Jurassic World Evolution 2 has four modes. Returning sandbox mode gives players the chance to tailor their experience with options such as infinite money and weather control, while Challenge mode sees you master a series of intensifying missions to test even the most seasoned of park managers. No matter the mode or setting, you’ll always have access to deep, easy-to-use management and creative options, as well as accessible and intuitive tools, to help realise your vision and bring your dream Jurassic World to life.

    We will also be visiting a range of breathtaking new environments, ranging from picturesque forests to scorching deserts. But of course, your park’s success depends on its dinosaurs. More than 75 different prehistoric species come to life in Jurassic World Evolution 2. This includes flying reptiles, such as the fan favorite Pteranodon, and marine reptiles, which range from the diminutive Ichthyosaur to the massive Mosasaurus. They display a range of brand-new behaviors and social interactions resulting in species that feel more alive than ever before.

    Dinosaur needs have evolved, too. Now you’ll use a new paleobotany system to feed herbivores the requisite diet of leaves, fibres, nuts, and fruit. Or you could try taking advantage of scientific breakthroughs and experiment with their genetic makeup. You might customise their skin with bold new colours or unlock traits such as longer lifespans and resistance to illness.

    In Jurassic World Evolution 2, you have the tools to help create and run your perfect dinosaur park. For instance, you can try recruiting scientists, who’ll help with all stages of dinosaur creation with their bespoke expertise. One might decrease time for research, another might help speed up expeditions and incubations but be careful as overworked staff could lead to unrest and sabotage. You can also look to maximize your profit by catering to new guest demographics, such as adventure and nature guests; and customize your amenities to suit those needs and the look of your park. Jurassic World Evolution 2 is out now, and on behalf of the entire team, we can’t wait for you to start creating your own dinosaur parks. Buy it today on the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
