Prior to the release of The Last of Us Part II, the team at Naughty Dog released a limited-run podcast, recapping the first game and teasing its sequel. With Horizon Forbidden West mere months away, the GAIA Cast has now been announced, diving “deep into the Horizon universe.”
In an announcement on Twitter, PlayStation Studio and Horizon Zero Dawn developer Guerilla Games announced the GAIA Cast. According to the studio, “From the team at Guerrilla, GAIA Cast is an upcoming podcast that dives deep into the Horizon universe.”
Unlike The Last of Us podcast, the GAIA Cast will offer multiple seasons of content, with “Our first season, focused on Horizon Zero Dawn, [debuting] this Tuesday, 23 November, with our first episode: All About Aloy.”
Both the worlds of The Last of Us and Horizon have deep and mysterious pasts, presents and futures. It is therefore exciting to see more content surrounding these worlds being released in multiple different mediums.
Podcasts are a highly popular form of media and it is interesting to see Sony choosing to adopt it not only as a form of marketing, but as a way to remind fans of the events of previous games – and these worlds as a whole. It will be interesting to see what other PlayStation IPs get their own podcast.
