HORIZON Zero Dawn is reportedly being remastered by Sony, and there’s also a new online multiplayer game coming to PS5.
Originally released in 2017, a remaster is said to be in the works to bring the graphics up to date with the PS5 hardware.
This would bring new visual upgrades like new character models, lighting, and animations to bring the game up to the sequel’s standard.
Horizon Forbidden West was released this year and was highly acclaimed for its graphics.
Corresponding VGCthe remaster will also include accessibility features, graphics modes, and quality of life improvements for players.
A second version of Horizon Zero Dawn was launched for the PC back in 2020.
This version has features like an improved frame rate, but no gameplay improvements like those rumored for the remaster.
Alongside the remaster and Horizon Call of the Mountain in development for PSVR 2, another Horizon game is reportedly in the works.
Not much is known about this new game, but it is rumored to be an online multiplayer spin-off developed for PS5 and PC.
This aligns with Sony’s earlier statement that it will focus on live service gaming alongside its popular single-player titles.
In May it was reported that 12 PS5 live service games are currently in development.
Co-op gameplay was apparently planned for the original Horizon Zero Dawn release, but was reportedly scrapped to focus on the main single-player mode.
Original concept art for the game featured multiplayer combat against Horizon’s large mechanical monsters.
This is similar gameplay to other famous PlayStation series like Monster Hunter, God Eater or Soul Sacrifice.
The idea of multiplayer is said to have been taken up again for the sequel Horizon Forbidden West.
However, developer Guerrilla Games reportedly wanted to save that idea for a future project that could be this rumored multiplayer spinoff.
