There are more details about Horizon Forbidden West, with the latest video and key art offering hints about its story. The trailer itself specifically focuses on the characters’ motivations. The art shows off Aloy and other people in the world. In addition, it turns out both Angela Bassett and Carrie-Anne Moss are playing parts in the game.

First, here’s the new story trailer. It shows that Aloy is heading off because things are going awry on the planet.
