Where you can see the Horizon Forbidden West State of Play in Australia

Horizon Forbidden West State of Play

A new PlayStation State of Play broadcast focused on Horizon Forbidden West will air this week, and we know when you can see it in Australia.

Horizon Forbidden West is one of the most hotly anticipated next-gen exclusives in Sony’s considerable roster. We know that the game will launch on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, but whether this State of Play will see a release date announce remains to be seen.

The broadcast will kick off at 2AM AEST on Friday, May 28th. This will be another short-and-sweet affair, clocking in at around 20 minutes, 14 of which will be captured gameplay. So if you were expecting a full, hour-long E3-style show-and-tell, maybe don’t get your hopes up.

The broadcast comes only days before E3 2021 festivities begin in earnest. The Horizon Forbidden West State of Play is not, however, part of the E3 conference itself. Sony is not returning to E3 for the third consecutive year, so we’ll have to wait and see if it has anything else up its sleeve.

So, where can you see the Horizon Forbidden West State of Play in Australia? You’ll be able to catch the show live (and afterwards on VOD) on the official PlayStation YouTube channel and on Twitch. See below for start times in all ANZ timezones:



Viewers in QLD, NSW, VIC and TAS will need to be up at 2AM sharp to catch the show.



South Australians and Territorians will need to be up at 1:30AM for the broadcast. Will you stay up or conk out for a few hours?


11:00 PM AWST

West Australians can simply stay up a bit past their bedtimes to catch the show this time. To be clear, that’s 11PM AWST on Thursday, May 27th for you legends.

And finally, New Zealand friends, don’t think we’ve forgotten you.



New Zealanders, as ever, get a bit of a raw deal on timing. You’ll have to be up at 4AM NZST for the broadcast, at which point you can either go back to bed after or simply watch it when you wake up a few hours later.
