Guerrilla Games has dropped perhaps the final cinematic trailer before the launch of Horizon Forbidden West next week.

Setting the scene for Aloy’s latest adventure, the short but sweet trailer showcases some of the new creatures, lands and more. At the same time, the studio is marking the imminent release with some facts about the previous game. Horizon Zero Dawn has sold over 20 million copies worldwide, with 1+ billion hours played. That’s according to a graphic shared on Twitter by PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst.

Earlier this week, the team also lifted the lid on some accessibility features in the upcoming sequel. These include a Notebook in the game that’ll keep track of characters, machines and datapoints. There’ll also be a tutorials section to help you brush up on the controls, should you return to the game after a break.

There’ll also be five difficulty settings in the game, as well as new Custom Difficulty setting for the new game. With this, Horizon Forbidden West will let you set the damage levels Aloy deals to and receives from enemies. There’ll also be several control presets, including a left handed scheme and fully remappable controls should you want to adjust further. The game will also support a Co-pilot system, if you’d like to use a second controller to help guide a friend.

There’s a whole smorgasbord of gameplay settings you can tweak too. These include the ability to turn HUD markers on & off, aim assist and even the length of the slowmo effect when zooming in. You can even mark climbable surfaces without needing to use Focus. You can check these and more accessibility settings on the PlayStation Blog.

Horizon Forbidden West will be with us this time next week. That’s February 18 on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
