The trailer follows a new protagonist named Ryas, a former Shadow Carja Warrior, doing everything you’d expect in a Horizon game but from a first-person perspective. We see her climbing walls and fighting robot dinosaurs, just as she does in Horizon Forbidden West. However, players can only see her disembodied hands.

In addition to the new look at the VR game, the State of Play stream unveiled a surprise update for Horizon Forbidden West that’s available today. It now has New Game + along with transmog features, new weapons, and Trophies, as well as a new Ultra Hard difficulty. Players can also respec their own skill points.

Horizon Call of the Mountain is being developed by Guerrilla Games, alongside Firesprite, a U.K. studio that Sony had acquired last year. As for PSVR 2 itself, it’ll have a 4K OLED display and can be set to either 90 or 120Hz. The headset will also have eye-tracking and the Sense controllers will have haptic feedback.

Horizon Call of the Mountain does not have a release date as yet.

I haven't played Half-Life: Alyx, but I really, really want to.

Last month, I picked up the PlayStation VR2 as my first virtual reality headset and have been enjoying a wide range of games on it since then, from Zombieland: Headshot Fever Reloaded to Horizon Call of the Mountain. Although the lack of exciting new titles in PSVR2's launch window library doesn't bother me that much as this is my first VR experience, I do still recognize that there are only a couple of games that are pushing the PSVR2's technology and giving Sony's second VR outing a clear identity.
