Upcoming PlayStation VR 2 is going to feature quite a list of games for its release including Horizon Call of the Mountain which is based off the Horizon franchise that includes Horizon Zero Dawn and Forbidden West.

Yesterday, PlayStation revealed its new protagonist for Call of the Mountain through a blog post. He goes by Ryas formerly a soldier and played a key role in the abduction of young Prince Itamen from his home in Meridian, Ryas seeks to atone and regain his honor.

“After allowing himself to be captured and imprisoned by the Carja, Ryas was spared execution. Now, he has been recruited by Sun-King Avad and Blameless Marad. A master climber, archer, and hunter, Ryas must earn his freedom in exchange for investigating a new threat. Guerrilla’s Studio Narrative Director, Ben McCaw, offered us further insight: “Ryas ended up on the wrong side for the right reasons. His family was torn apart, and ultimately, he was incarcerated. This is the story of how he tries to come back from that.”

Along your journey in this game players will meet new characters and reunite with very familiar ones, but his past affected these relationships.

“Having fought for the Shadow Carja, Ryas’ relationship with these characters is at best adversarial. He needs to make inroads and amends if he hopes to be accepted.”

You can play Horizon Call of the Mountain on February 22 when the PlayStation VR 2 launches.
