What Time Does Horizon Forbidden West Release

The release time and date of Horizon Forbidden West is February 18th at midnight local time. We’re talking about the digital release, of course; if you’re after a physical copy, you should probably call the store and check. Back to the matter at hand; there is no way we know of to play the game earlier than midnight on February 18th. The Digital Deluxe edition of the game comes with a bunch of cool extra in-game items (as well as goodies like the soundtrack, art book, comic book, and more), but it doesn’t grant you any kind of early access or anything like that.

Now, that also means that you should probably traverse the internet carefully in the coming days if you want to avoid spoilers. A rollout launch means that, say, people from New Zealand and Australia are going to get to play before everybody else. They will be posting about their experience when their Horizon Forbidden West release time and date rolls around, you can be sure of that. So, just tread carefully, that’s all I’m saying. There are going to be dozens and dozens of secrets and plot twists, I’m pretty sure. It’d be a bummer to have them spoiled, even by accident.

Incidentally, the game picks up a relatively short while after the end of the first one. It will take you and Aloy on a journey through a number of new biomes and recognizable locales from the western part of the United States. Expect to see new machines, weapons, and more. Oh, and you’ll finally be able to explore underwater, too.
