Lance Reddick Horizon Forbidden West

Late Actor Lance Reddick Memorialized In Horizon Forbidden West

A tribute in an area of the game's DLC region

Lance Reddick was taken from the world of games and acting far too soon when he died earlier this year. After an outpouring of love and support in Destiny 2 for his work as Commander Zavala, Guerrilla Games has created a permanent fixture for players to do the same in Horizon Forbidden West.

Reddick played the morally grey and compelling character of Sylens in both Forbidden West and its predecessor, Zero Dawn. The actor passed away earlier this year at the age of 60.

After an update was pushed to the game this week, players came across the above memorial. The only caveat is that it’s only available to players with access to the DLC Burning Shores.

At the location, anyone can see the projected name of the late actor. It is also where Sylens and Aloy meet for the first time—a touching and meaningful location for players and developers alike.

At the time of Reddick’s passing in March, Destiny 2 players paid tribute to the fallen commander in-game. Players from all over the world came together in The Tower, paying respect to Commander Zavala. On social media, fans and Bungie staff shared tributes to the man who loved the Destiny community, actively playing and engaging with it since its inception.
