As in the first part, the title is set in a post-apocalyptic version of the USA. The focus remains on the fighter Aloy, who, as commander of the troops, is on the hunt for the origin of a deadly disease. After the events of the first part, you made not only friends, but also many enemies.

A little prior knowledge can’t hurt the fun of the game

If you don’t know what happened in the previous title, you might feel a bit lost. Since the story begins directly in “Horizon Zero Dawn,” prior knowledge of the previous action can be very helpful. As it should be, there are also a lot of new characters, who have once again given Hollywood actors their voices.

The already large game world, in which you can move completely freely on the principle of the open world, is even larger than in the first part. The climbing mechanics have been expanded, which means the world is expanding to a higher level. It is inhabited by a large number of hostile robotic animals that are after the remaining human population.
