Finally ! Guerilla Games has just released the very first images of the highly anticipated Horizon Forbidden West in its PS4 version, and it’s a hell of a slap! So far, the studio had only released screenshots and gameplay sequences from the PS5 version, and there was a legitimate concern that the graphics rendering gap was too large between the two versions of the game. clearly won’t, and Horizon Forbidden West looks set to be one of the prettiest games on the PS4. It remains to be seen what this gives in motion: the framerate will it be stable at 30 fps with this level of detail?
Horizon Forbidden West proves in any case that the cross-gen does not prohibit making visually superb games, even if the trailer incredible Hellblade 2 and the Matrix demo (already available on Xbox Series and PS5) show the visual rendering gain that we can expect from the next gen. Horizon Forbidden West is certainly very impressive, but paradoxically, the game is already no longer THE reference graphic slap on the current generation of consoles (which promises for the future…). Horizon Forbidden West will be released for PS4 and PS5 on February 18, 2022.
