We’re nearing the end of the Horizon Forbidden West release, and PlayStation is releasing more and more of the game. Yesterday, Guerrilla Games released a new Forbidden West story trailer, and you can check out some of the… exclusive details we learned about it after talking with the team, and now the studio has released a special “meet the cast” trailer.
It begins with an introduction to Aloy’s main character’s voice actor, Ashly Burch, who explains that Aloy must step into a new role as the hero of the world. She also mentioned the more opposite side of Aloy and Sylens’ relationship. And speaking of Sylens, Lance Reddick will return to voice the character last seen in the post-credits scene at the end of Horizon Zero Dawn. He talks about Sylens’ selfish personality and how that shaped his relationships in Forbidden West.
We also meet Kotallo’s voice actor, Noshir Dalal. Both new to the series, Kotallo meets Aloy at a time when his life is in great crisis. Kotallo’s leader envisions a peaceful alliance in the Western Forbidden, and Kotallo’s mission is to protect his leader’s cause. Joining Kotallo as a new character in the world of Horizon is Tilda, who is voiced by Matrix column Carrie-Anne Moss.
“I play this very interesting character named Tilda, who is quite dynamic,” Moss said in the trailer. “As an artist, there is a lot of freedom in doing things like this. You have to catch the right moment, get direction from the director, have to try again and again; I feel like creatively, it’s fun. There’s a lot of mystery to her – I don’t want to say too much – but she’s an interesting character and I enjoyed playing her.”
Next up is Varl, voiced by John Macmillan. As Macmillan notes, Varl was on a “journey”. He said that the screenwriters did a great job developing the character in Forbidden West as he matured and was more willing to challenge Aloy when necessary. Erend voiced by John Hopkins is also back. He talks about Aloy’s disappearance at the end of Zero Dawn, causing the relationship to fall apart at the start of Forbidden West. Macmillan and Hopkins say their relationship as Varl and Erend grows quite a bit in the game as both are Aloy’s new main allies.
We also got a glimpse of some of the new concept art for Forbidden West, which you can check out below:
