Alpha gameplay footage and concept art for Guerilla Games' "stylized" Horizon multiplayer project has leaked online, showing it to be a cooperative take on the main game with cartoon visuals.
Following a series of job listings, last month Guerilla Games confirmed that it has been developing a multiplayer game set in the Horizon universe, one that aimed to "expand the world of Horizon" with a "stylized" look. Guerilla hasn't given us any official glimpses into this project just yet, but a recent leak shows more than ten minutes of alpha gameplay, along with some concept art that was found within the files.
The leaked gameplay, which is reportedly from a Summer 2020 build, was shared on the Horizon subreddit and shows 12 minutes of alpha gameplay footage. Most of the gameplay shown is just the player walking around a camp and some grassy fields, but there is a little bit of combat sprinkled in, which seems

A piece of concept art found within the files for the alpha shows one of the characters that appears in the leaked gameplay footage, which seems to imply that they're pre-set and not customisable.
Beyond the unique art style, the multiplayer Horizon game looks like just that – a Horizon game with multiplayer elements. Everything from the movement to the way that enemies attack looks like it's lifted from Zero Dawn and Forbidden West, as you'd expect from a game set in the same universe. The only thing that remains to be seen is how players will interact with each other and work together to take down Machines.
