Horizon Forbidden West’s Transformation of Human Enemies is Very Welcoming

Human Enemies in Horizon Forbidden West: One of the most amazing exclusives of the Sony PlayStation 4 era is Horizon Zero Dawn. The game is set in a dystopian version of our world. It centers around a lost soul known as Aloy, who is looking to explain her family’s history while fighting evil religious cultists.

 One of the compelling reasons for the game is the intense combat that pits players against gigantic robot dinosaurs, also known as machines. But, of course, they all have weaknesses, and although Aloy may dwarf some, the giant enemies can be defeated by slicing away their parts.

While the game’s dynamic gameplay never gets boring, there’s an aspect that doesn’t work. It is easy to lose the intricate combat as players face silly enemies that appear to be nothing more than a hassle to manage when it comes to human foes. The good news is that recent information regarding Horizon Forbidden West, the forthcoming sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, clearly indicates that combat between humans will undergo certain necessary adjustments.

Aloy isn’t exploring cauldrons and cauldrons, climbing Tallnecks, and taking down Thunderjaws. Instead, she occasionally clears out a few Bandit camps. Clearing out bases is advantageous for Aloy as they allow loot and make the environment safer for travelers to traverse.

 However, it could be boring dealing with them for players because the battle with human foes is a minimal experience.

Human enemies are fragile AI, making it absurdly difficult to deceive them. Most of the time, they run directly into the line of fire and continue to move forward, even when bombarded with dangerous shooting arrows. 

Therefore, a plan that is as easy as setting up some tripwire, hiding behind close bushes, then taking the guards out at the entry point of a camp could send the other group rushing forward and being attacked by fire-spinning archers from Aloy. But, unfortunately, human enemies don’t seem to pay attention to the mistakes made by their fellows or use any form of teamwork to defeat Aloy.

A few levels can increase the game’s difficulty. However, it isn’t going to solve the problem also, as it turns players into bullet sponges, or the arrow sponges, in this instance, which are extremely tedious to manage. Compared to machines and their plethora of weapons and behavior, human enemies are an unending task that must be taken care of before Aloy gets back to enjoying the fun things.

In the period leading up to Horizon Forbidden West, Guerrilla Games have been providing a constant flow of details about what players are likely to experience in the game. 

The most recent PlayStation blog post dives into how the combat system is played out in Horizon Forbidden West differs from the previous version. Combat will be much more elegant due to melee combos and Valor Surges. Players will also have the ability to upgrade their weapons and clothing on the workbench.

 Horizon Forbidden West will also allow different gameplay styles, allowing gamers to test various strategies to deal with their enemies. It doesn’t matter if players want stealth to fight or face danger in the face; using the right approach either can be successful.

Incredibly, Guerrilla Games have improved the AI of the enemies. The enemies will leap, climb and be more adept at navigating the terrain. Aloy will have to keep her eyes on the ball when fighting human beings. 

Human foes will sense any disturbances and begin looking in search of Aloy. If they believe there’s an enemy within their territory, they can join forces and collaborate to discover the cause of the disturbance.

How human enemies behave can differ depending on the tribes Aloy is fighting to act like animals. The enemies of the Champion class, for example, will circle their target with confidence without stopping their gaze, similar to how the wolf hunts its prey.

 Contrarily, Rebel Soldier enemies are wild and feral and gain confidence in large groups. This could bring back memories of how a hyena would behave.

From what it appears, the dull human enemies from Horizon Zero Dawn are gone and replaced by more skilled opponents. However, the diversity of mortal enemies and their unique behavior requires players to understand the different ways that human enemies operate and which strategies will be most effective to deal with the various types of enemies. 

Intelligent AI means that simple strategies will likely not work so that some thought-provoking approach will be needed. These changes are welcome and will contribute to making human-machine combat as exciting as battles against machines are.

The date of Horizon Forbidden West‘s debut is getting closer every day; the game’s Aloy will be tested in new ways when she travels to new places. The improvements that were showcased in the Guerrilla Games game indicate that everything will be more excellent and more exciting with this much-anticipated sequel.

Horizon Forbidden West is set to be released in 2022 on the 18th of February, on PS4 and PS5.
