Horizon Forbidden West: details on side missions and weapon and outfit upgrades

Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West is revealed again from the in-depth article in the new issue of Game Informer with some details on secondary missions and upgrades of weapons and equipment, as well as some other information that provides further clues about the game.

As far as concerns the activities and secondary missions, inside the cities and villages you can find "Melee Pits", which offer challenges to be faced to test your skills in combat, in particular with regard to hand-to-hand combat and the ability to perform combos.

Horizon Forbidden West, one of the new images of the game It is not yet clear what it is, but they seem like arenas that are used to train for combat.

The secondary missions, that is the real and own side quests, now have more important rewards that make them more interesting and stimulate the fact of undertaking them more so that you can get prizes of considerable value.

The new system for improving and upgrading weapons and equipment, through the workbenches, is based on a greater focus on the need to collect machine parts, therefore this process becomes indispensable for the upgrade, having to go in search of specific components.

The weapons have different upgrade levels : the common bow, for example, has three levels of improvement that increase the power and give the possibility to unlock new types of ammunition. Through these it is possible to unlock the acid arrows, to give another example, so it seems that the ammunition does not depend on the type of bow but on the upgrades made.

The clothes can be improved from 3 to 5 times: the upgrade of these produces greater resistance and increases the related skills, for example the passive skills related to the recovery of vital energy. Yesterday we saw some details on skills, specializations and fighting styles and 5 new images of the game for PS5 and PS4.

Horizon Forbidden West's Massive PS5 File Size Leaked

Horizon Forbidden West is easily one of 2022's most-anticipated PlayStation 5 games, but fans that are planning to pick it up might want to clear out some storage space, first. Apparently, the game will require 85.913 GB in North America, and 96.350 in other regions. The difference there can be attributed to different language requirements in the EU. These numbers were shared on Twitter by @PlaystationSize, and are prior to the day one patch. The person running the account points out that these requirements can sometimes shift down 10-20 GB, and PlayStation has not officially confirmed these numbers, so readers should take this with a grain of salt.

The original Tweet from @PlaystationSize can be found below.

File sizes have long been of interest to players, particularly those that buy a lot of games, or like to enjoy franchises like Call of Duty. In the next-gen era, space limitations have gotten a bit problematic. As games get more and more advanced, they require a significant amount of space on the console. Unfortunately, it's getting costlier to expand that storage, and sometimes that can make a difference in the games that players are willing to purchase.

While it does seem a bit big, Horizon Forbidden West's file size probably won't scare away too many players! The previous game, Horizon Zero Dawn, has been a big success on PlayStation 4, and players are eager to see what Guerrilla Games does with the next game. The sequel sees protagonist Aloy exploring new locations, which will feature a mix between new and returning threats. Horizon Forbidden West was originally meant to release in 2021, but was pushed back to early next year. The game's release date is finally starting to draw closer, so hopefully it will prove worth the wait!

Horizon Forbidden West is set to release February 18th on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. In the meantime, readers can check out all of our previous coverage of Horizon Forbidden West right here.
