Already on Friday, the 18th of February you are allowed to go to your second adventure with Archerkeizin Aloy and make the world of Horizon Forbidden West uncertain. Already Horizon Zero Dawn was quite a graphics miracle and accordingly pretty is the successor.

To demonstrate the PlayStation 4- and the Playstation 4 Pro version, developer studio guerrilla games has already shared gameplay in recent weeks. Our technique comparison gets the PlayStation 5-Version on board and shows you how load and current gene cut off in a direct forums.

What makes the technology of Horizon Forbidden West on the PS4 and PS5?

A small indication in advance: We have opted for our recordings on the PS5 for the quality mode with 30 fps . Who prefers liquid 60 images per second, can of course switch to the power mode, but must then accept small graphic smears when playing.

In direct comparison, the first time the light effects jump into the eye. Already on the PS4 Pro but especially on the PS5, the light looks crispy and at the same time more natural than on the PS4, especially on the faces of the characters. Better lighting also ensures that the world acts as such more plastic and gives her more depth.

With regard to the loading times , of course, the PS5 has little surprising the nose. Even after about seven seconds, you land from the main menu of the game directly in action. The PS4 Pro needs a whole corner with almost 50 seconds and the normal PS4 lets you even wait for a few seconds longer. Similarly, the fast travel is where the PS5 spoils you with five seconds charging time while the PS4 needs half a minute.

But technology and graphics are of course not all: Gameplay, History and the open world of Horizon are also worth a look. As well as the successor really liked, whether he can build on the basis of Horizon Zero Dawn and Aloys adventure raises a new level, all this is what you can do in our test at Horizon Forbidden West. The latest work of Guerilla Games appears exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and 5 on 18 February. **
