The machines of Horizon Forbidden West

If you think that the second installment will only have new evil robots, then you are totally wrong. Because there are a lot of machines returning from Horizon Zero Dawn, into the sequel. This means that chances of encountering deadly scenarios will be even higher. Talking about the machines themselves, then they will be in all shapes and sizes, based on natural Earth-based creatures’ forms. Some of them include robotic dinosaurs, robot mammals, and also birds. Not to mention that they will pose a serious threat to Aloy’s missions and everything she pursues in the story of Horizon Forbidden West.

Horizon Zero Dawn consisted of 25 multiple machines, as per Principal Machine Designer Blake Politeski. Talking about the sequel, he said that the team is expanding the catalog even further with more advanced robots like Sunwing.

Since the machines are rising in higher numbers, Aloy will also need better and effective weapons than the last title. And according to Maxim Fleury, the Asset Art Lead at Guerrilla, she will have a vast armory for specific purposes. It implies that for every different creature, she will have a suitable attack and weapon. However, players, as Aloy, will need to thoroughly observe the machines in order to know their weak points if they want to defeat them.
