Sony revealed more gameplay from Horizon Forbidden West in a new video and explanatory blog post, including mechanics, weapons, and enemies players can look forward to.

Guerrilla reiterated their commitment to free and open traversal, highlighting Aloy's climbing and vaulting abilities and also the new Pullcaster item. This is essentially a grappling hook item that works in the usual way - letting Aloy reach new, out of reach places - but there's a second feature that makes it more than your usual grapple tool: winch mode.

The Pullcaster's winch lets Aloy bring items closer, and it also lets her destroy certain environmental obstacles to find new paths or hidden secrets.

Aloy will also find workbenches scattered around the world where she can upgrade her existing equipment and weapons, and she's got plenty of new weapons and skills to use on her journey.
