Sony and Guerrilla just showcased Horizon Forbidden West gameplay footage running directly on a PlayStation 5, and the game looks incredible. The world is vibrant, bright and tropical, combat is fluid and chaotic, and the facial animations are top-notch. What really caught my eye was the new toys that Aloy can use in battle.

Horizon Forbidden West features a bunch of major new additions that add a new dimension to traversal and combat. Aloy now has a Shield Glider that she can use to fly around the map, lifting the glider straight out of open-world Zelda games.

But a glider isn't enough; Guerrilla also adds the other perfect piece to the puzzle with a grappling hook. It's called the Pullcaster and it "speeds up climbing and can get you quickly out of trouble," the devs say.
