Horizon Forbidden West Will Feature Explorable San Francisco And Yosemite Valley


Horizon Forbidden West will be set between Utah and the Pacific Ocean, and it will feature some fully explorable iconic locations.

The September 2020 issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine UK confirmed that the PlayStation 5 open-world game in development by Guerilla Games will feature San Francisco and the Yosemite Valley in explorable form. Many speculated that the game would be set in Utah, Nevada, and California by analyzing the reveal trailer, so it's nice to finally receive official confirmation.

Horizon Forbidden West will leverage the power of the PlayStation 5 to present an incredibly immersive experience. The console's SSD will also make loading screens a thing of the past.

On the PS5, we can make the world even more detailed and more vibrant and more immersive. With the PS5's SSD, there will be virtually no loading screens. So, in an open-world game like Horizon Forbidden West, if you open up the map and fast travel from one end to the other [or] restarting from a checkpoint will be super fast. When you boot up the game, you're right there in the action.
