  2. A new difficulty level for players looking for a real challenge.

  4. Re-distribution of skill points.
  5. A new vendor that trades items sourced from animals.
  6. Improved anti-aliasing for better image quality on PS5 and PS4 Pro.

A gameplay trailer from Horizon: Call of the Mountain was also shown (though no release date was announced), which will require a PlayStation VR2 for the PS5 console. We will play in it as a former member of the Shadow Carja.

  1. During the game we will encounter both new characters and those from previous installments of the series - including Aloy herself. We will also test the crafting system.
  2. Apart from the story campaign in the game there will be a river ride mode, which will enable us to sit in a virtual boat and relax, while admiring breathtaking views.
  3. Be careful though - uninvited machines may try to come on board.
