Description from PlayStation Store:

Join Aloy on a journey to the Forbidden West, beautiful yet dangerous lands where new dangers lurk.

Return to the post-apocalyptic world of Horizon set in the distant future to explore distant lands, fight larger and even more amazing machines, and meet amazing new tribes.

The planet is dying. Violent storms and a strange plague are decimating the scattered remnants of humanity, and mighty new machines appear on the horizon. Life on Earth rushes to meet another extinction, and no one knows why.

Aloy must unravel the mystery behind these new threats and then restore order to the world. Along the way, he will meet old acquaintances, forge new alliances with rival tribes, and discover new secrets from the distant past – all the while trying to stay one step ahead of his seemingly invincible new enemy.
