Yesterday, throughout a particular State of Play, Horizon Forbidden West resurfaced with our first look at its gameplay, courtesy of the PS5. And judging by the truth that the State of Play broke viewership information, it went nicely. In truth, some PlayStation followers weren’t solely blown away by the PS5 gameplay present, however by the attention to detail. Nonetheless, if there was one damaging speaking level, it was about Aloy’s delicate design adjustments, or at the least her perceived adjustments. By and huge, she seems similar to she does in Horizon Zero Dawn, however introduced additional to life because of developments in expertise. Nonetheless, at the least within the aforementioned gameplay footage, she does look a tiny bit totally different.
In fact, the majority of viewers did not discover these adjustments or at the least did not care about them, nonetheless, some did discover them and weren’t impressed. At first, many theorized the variations got here right down to age. Nonetheless, this idea does not make any sense as a result of the occasions of Horizon Forbidden West are solely six months after the occasions of Horizon Zero Dawn. In different phrases, there is not any narrative clarification in play.
It is unclear why Aloy — seemingly — seems a bit totally different, however once more it is possible simply due to the developments in expertise, the ability of the PS5, and the lenses and lighting used within the trailer. In comparison with how she seems in Horizon Zero Dawn, she seems extra detailed, realized, and sensible. That is particularly obvious when evaluating the textures of the 2 fashions, and particularly the complexion of the 2 fashions. Regardless of the case, it is all been an enormous speaking level on numerous PlayStation Reddit pages and on Twitter.
She Seems to be So Out of Place
Truthfully, taking a look at this Forbidden West trailer, all the things seems superb, besides Aloy. And it is not as a result of I do not just like the character design. She simply appears weirdly misplaced with all the things else within the video. It is jarring. However perhaps simply me.
