Horizon Forbidden West Alpha Build has been leaked online

December 2022 is the month of leaks. In just one month, we got our hands on the source code for Mortal Kombat 2 Arcade, as well as leaked versions of PREY 1995 and Halo 3. And the next game on the list is none other than Horizon Forbidden West.

While we won’t be sharing any links to the leaked alpha build, I’m pretty sure most of you will be able to find it. This alpha build comes with a debug menu unlock code that can be unpacked with PKGEditor. Therefore, modders/hackers can take a look and archive, collect and examine the alpha content of the game.

In theory, this alpha build should be playable on a jailbroken PS4. However, for PC gamers, I don’t think this is THAT interesting. After all, there is currently no way to play it on PC.

Unfortunately, there is no video of this leaked build (or a video comparison between it and the final/retail version).

For what it’s worth, Horizon Forbidden West was on the GeForce Now leaked list. So we may get a native PC port soon (theoretically in 2024 or 2025).

Stay tuned for more!
