Viewers can also catch a glimpse of a few of the new weapons available to Aloy, including Horizon Forbidden West's new spear being shown off as Aloy uses it in the one-on-one combat of the melee pits.

The trailer also teases another form of optional combat, the Arena. Here, hunters do battle against powerful machines, with only the strongest and most skilled emerging victorious.

The Hunting Grounds are also briefly shown, giving players a peek at Aloy as she hunts down rare machine parts, by going into battle. The previously teased Salvage Contracts, are also confirmed in this trailer, but players are warned of their dangers.

There will be quite a few dangerous camps and outposts for Aloy to look out for in Horizon Forbidden West, which means exciting new challenges to overcome. Of course, these will be complemented by various mysteries to unravel in the form of ruins, cauldrons, and much more.

While the main story should be more than enough to keep players interested, the game also features a plethora of other aspects including challenges that offer useful rewards, as well as creative new ways to battle the machines, rebels, and whatever else the wilds have in store.
