The launch of Horizon Forbidden West has generated great enthusiasm even here with us, giving life, among other things, to an event that is more unique than rare: Aloythe protagonist of the game, ended up on cover of the new issue of the Italian edition of Vanity Fair.
After the statue of Aloy in Florence, Sony has therefore decided to bring the promotional campaign of Horizon Forbidden West (here the review) to levels that have probably never been seen before, especially in Italy.
The Vanity Fair article dedicated to the protagonist of the new Guerrilla Games title enhances the characteristics of the character. “The most striking thing about Aloy is, above all, hers emancipation from any stereotype representative “, it reads.
“Experts know how much women in video games have struggled to get out of the dimension of sexualization who forged them as aesthetically perfect and responsive to a certain masculine imaginary, with pronounced breasts, full lips and a narrow waist. With her freckled cheeks and her austere appearance, Aloy has managed to redeem an industry that is finally free of labels. “
“Aloy is neither mother nor wife, neither supporting partner nor assistant, but a strong and courageous woman that, in a world where gender differences no longer exist, she uses her weapons to discover herself, taking with her all the weaknesses, fears and reservations that belong to the psychological complexity of mankind. “
