Horizon Forbidden West is not a particularly challenging game, but apparently one player has stumbled upon a trap worthy of a soulslike FromSoftware (or almost).
Aloy’s new adventure set in the Forbidden West (which you can also find on Amazon at a truly remarkable price) can indeed prove to be full of pitfalls, although perhaps not at the level of an Elden Ring .
