In my opinion this is the best game ever made.
What's on your mind?
Hi everyone! Check out a new single player podcast. This episode focuses in detail on how I think Horizon Forbidden West is shaping up, in addition to other exciting PS5 games. I can't wait for Aloy's return on PS5. Please enjoy! The podcast is available on Apple, Spotify, Google, and more. Thank you!
So we know Aloy is 18 or 19 (though I think I remember her saying she is 19 at one point) and Nora need to be 18 to run the proving. So if she's 19 when she runs the proving, why wouldn't she run the previous year?
This thought process makes me wonder whether the Proving is annual or if it happens after a specific number of years (like the Olympics). I don't remember any character saying whether or not the Proving happens every year and the page for the Proving does not mention it either.
It makes sense to me both ways...
Why wouldn't this tradition be yearly? Nora turn 18 all the time, so why make them wait to become a brave?
But there seems to be quite a few Nora running the Proving with Aloy. I'm not sure exactly how big the Nora tribe is, but it seems a little odd (to me) that there are 10/15/more Nora running the Proving every year. It could just be that since it is a game, the scale of the Sacred Lands seems a bit small, so there could very well be more than 15 children (not all of them aim to become braves) born the same year that survive until they are 18. I doubt we are able to physically see all the Nora that exist during the game, the villages would feel crowded, so there's a possibility that there is actually a good population of Nora.
On the other hand, there are reasons why the Nora aren't super populated. I doubt the Nora have the appropriate medical knowledge and technology available to prevent babies from dying (either in the womb or soon after birth) at a success rate compared to today. Also, disease, injuries, predators, machines, etc. could all contribute to a child dying before being old enough to run the Proving.
Then again, Nora couples may have five or six children to increase the likelihood of at least one surviving childhood (as we can see in our own history). The Nora may also have the necessary medical knowledge and technology to assure a child survives into adulthood, just because they seem "less advanced" than we are today (or even compared to the Carja or Oseram) doesn't mean no Nora has ever made medical advancements.
I may have gone off on a tangent from my original question (is the Proving annual), but I also wanted to express my thoughts and opinions related to the subject.
Do you know whether or not the Proving is annual? If it is not confirmed, what is your opinion? Feel free to respond to any points I made throughout my post.
Hear me out...
How cool would it be if we could trade resources online with other players rather than just merchants? There are some goods that just can't be obtained through merchants that some of us need to get rid of but we might not need the extra metal shards. If I were a developer, I'd make it so that there was a cool animation of Aloy loading goods in a satchel and locking that satchel on to an overridden Charger, Strider or Broadhead and the machine walking off, eventually returning with the received resources when the player you send it to completes the trade. Just a random thought, seemed cool, especially with the animation. Upvote it if you agree, comment if there's any other features you hope to see in Forbidden West or future Horizon games!

I have a question! I have play HZD for a total of 60 hours now and im aming for a platinum trophy and a 100% competed game just for fun. But now im stuck because i have killed a guy named Nil, witch does that i can´t get the trophy "All allies joind"
Pleace! i need edwice. Do i have to play the game all over again or is it an other way?
So this ones gonna be a little different. Cause im doing a collab with fandom user/creater @Reaperj743. I put this off cause i forgot. Im doing two machines, one combat class and one communications class. Combat could be easy, you could litterally just throw some weapons on a giant mass, but I didn’t want to do that so instead i made a machine inspired by scylla/the hydra from greek mythology. Basically its a massive brute with several heads (idk pick a number, maybe seven) each armed with different weaponry. It also has a “core” that can let out a massive electrical strike to kill off the player as a self destruct thing when it gets low. This core and the heads are also weak spots. The communications machine is inspired by a monster from my all time favorite game (tied with horizon of course :), zorah magdoros from mhw. The monster in the game was a massive hulking volcano monster, and although the fight was a boring blemish on an otherwise perfect game, it had tons of potential for greatness. So you can imagine a machine (this is kinda cheating cause it fits three categories really:communications, transport, and a new one:siege. But communications is hard ok, give me a break) that would serve as the post story endgame of h2fw. It would basically be a giant brute that other machines would ride on as transportation or to defend the beast. You could ride on its back and defeat some of these powerful machines for loot. Basically it would be a walking region to explore which is what i wish zorah from monster hunter was. And perhaps there would be a quest where after you cleared his back you could fight the beast itself. That would be dope.

Hi! I just started playing a few hours ago.
Took advantage of the PlayStation summer sale and got the complete collection for $15 woohoo!!
Reason why I never bought it was because I swear there was negative reviews when it first came out. But I’ve seen only great reviews.
Sorry I’m late to the party, but I just arrived :D
Any tips? Playing on hard and I been investing my points tn foraging and resource accumulation just so I can upgrade or buy more stuff early on. I just finished side quests and is about to go up to Mother’s Heart for the first time.
This game makes me just mad at how everyone treats Aloy in the beginning... so far
For anyone who's played Horizon: Zero Dawn, if you've visited Rost's grave site following the Revenge of the Nora quest, Aloy states that, despite his mother issues, Varl has made a lasting impression on the flame-haired huntress and that, for once, she actually likes someone. That someone being him. She also offered to take Varl into the mountain before anyone else in the Nora Tribe and showed visible concern for his health following the battle with the Corrupted Thunderjaw and the Eclipse. Could we see this relationship bloom in Horizon: Forbidden West or other future installments? Aloy is fully capable of holding her own and being independent, we've seen that firsthand, but companionship is never a bad thing. Anyone else interested to see how Aloy and Varl turn out as time goes on?
Its been a while. I kinda forgot about doing this and ive been playing minecraft for a while. Looking back at my old posts, i only had one water machine and it was terrible. Let me try again, if i still fail, i guess someone else could do underwater machines.
The machine:so it would basically be a giant...thing. I dont know what shape it would have ok? It lives underwater thats the important part. It could propell itself with jets of pressurized air and this is its main thing. It has huge jaws with tons of bite force and it kinda boosts itself really fast through the water with its mouth open and bites you. Im toying with the idea of it using its jets as a shockwave attack but im not sure, tell me what you think.
Sorry i havent posted in a while (although my newest machine was just posted) but i have to say one thing:on my posts can you guys please suggest names for the machines?

I started the DLC yesterday and got the Striker Bow to replace my Shadow Hunter bow. With my mods it has 131 handling and 104 damage 121 tear for Hardpoint arrows.
However when I'm in any area outside The Cut it doesn't look like my mods upgrade the stats at all during a fight. It seems like they just resort back to their Base settings.
Do stats/mods on Banuk FW weapons only apply if you're in The Cut?
Every one knows that in the HFW trailer, it showed Aloy diving under water right?
Don't you think it would be awesome if like there was a boss machine that Aloy had to fight and the machine was a kraken??? In my opinion it would be a very hard battle for Aloy.
Please share your thoughts.
So this is not my idea, simply speculation on an idea posted on imagine machines #6 by user @AVEDA 13
So the machine posted by AVEDA was a bat like machine that would dwell in caves. I can imagine (lol) it hanging upside down and also creeping along walls. It should have the ability to use its wings as arms but aside from that the main part was that it should have long leg like abilities of sonic powers. I completely agree and think this machine should expound on that. Perhaps it has the ability to redirect sound waves using walls and/or it could have a super ability where it filled an area with sound and then attacked. Basically it would stun the player with sound waves then attack. There should of course be a way to avoid these (as there should any attack...im looking at you lunastra) perhaps by timing some evade against the sound so it doesn’t affect you. I find this the best solution as it massively raises the skill ceiling.
The machine:so i kindof have two ideas but one of them is more full fledged than the other so take the second idea with a grain of salt. First of all is a spider machine. It can lay explosive tripwires everywhere or trap you with a lightning web attack. It can also scale the ceiling and leap at you but one of the most interesting ideas i had (although its very hit or miss) was a disc launcher (ish) attack on its legs. It would point one of its legs at you which would deploy a lazer targetting system that can only move very slowly and after some time it would explode. The other machine idea was a machine that manipulated the grav lift mechanics. It would be more similar to a giant raid boss (but singleplayer. If guerilla sees this and uses this, make it soloable) and its main mechanic would be using its gravity attacks to shift the terrain around it. It could summon giant spikes, create floating platforms that you have to parkour on to avoid a massive supernova, summon dust clouds to blind you, etc. It should still be able to move around and kinda like the kulve taroth quest in mhw half of the siege would just be it during the gravity stage then once you break its “horns” it travels to another arena where you fight it while it charges you, and does some lightning and fire attacks (lightning would be its ranged attacks, fire would be its melee attacks. You might say this doesn’t fit the feel of the fight but it would still be fun and it does fit the feel of the game as a whole).
Also:if anyone has any ideas for machines i would like to do a commenter version. Obviously you could just type them in the fandom yourself but its up to you. If you do submit them to me you will be credited.
Heya there. I'm sure noones ever heard of me except for the few who I bombarded with questions back when I was new to this Fandom.
Long story short, as you can guess by the title, I've created a server for this game, and I'm inviting people to join. of course this'll be on discord, and if anyone wants to join, I'll go ahead and give them a link right at the very end. I created it with a friend who you can also find on this wiki, and I am trying to basically make a "creativity" server. while there is plenty of space for stuff like OC ideas, art, Machines, Characters, and even DLC ideas, there is also one thing we're desperately lacking; people. it's literally us, a friend who I invited for help with the bots, and the wind.
If you're the kind of person who likes joining nearly empty servers, by all means, please do.
Our basic rules are just be nice. IDC what you do besides that, but no being an idiot.
If you're not fine with swearing, ask nicely, we're big boys, we can handle a little less swearing.
Anyway, the link is here, and if you do join, be sure to say hi so one of us knows. you can also ping me in the server for ideas of yours, as well as help in this wiki.
I really dont want to try and copy word for word what i wrote here and the copy/paste isn’t working. So just read the other posts for instructions.
This would function similar to namielle from mhw. It would place down pools of some hyperconductive fluid (probably not water but im not sure on this) then it can light it up with electric attacks. It might also be able to shoot out beams of electricity like rajang. Electricity is one of the coolest elements in horizon so having another one that uses it woulf be dope. And imagine if the fluid causes you to slip and slide while you walk on it. Ive been playing a lot of monster hunter and this just sounds like namielle, rajang, and mizutsune all in one which makes this great.
