Aloy is obviously the face of the Horizon franchise as she was the main character in both Zero Dawn and Forbidden West, and while she’s set to make another appearance in the upcoming Horizon Call of the Mountain game for PlayStation VR2 developed by Guerrilla and Firesprite, she won’t be the main character.
On Twitter, Guerrilla talked about the main character, Rias, a former Dark Carja who became a master hunter. Described as “motivated and experienced”, he has many regrets about his Shadow Carja days and “lost faith in himself”, as well as being “a capable fighter and machine hunter” and “adept with a bow” – all makes sense considering Call of the Mountain from a first-person perspective and the basis of ranged gameplay.
“Not much is known about his appearance,” Guerrilla says of Rias. “Despite the fact that he retained some of his Dark Carja equipment, he removed all markings and insignia from it. He knows that his past actions, including his role in sequestering the young Prince Itamen, will never be forgiven by the world. However, he seeks to regain his honor.”
Horizon Call of the Mountain will be released as a launch game for PlayStation VR2 on February 22, 2023.
