Horizon Forbidden West: How to use photo mode

Horizon Forbidden West is the most visually beautiful game you’re likely to play this year. Its open world is incredibly detailed, and the various components of the machines have been meticulously designed so that you can literally point them out on your screen like Leo in that meme in awe. All of the character models also look almost photorealistic, so you’ll probably want to take lots of photos to remember your epic adventure. Thankfully, Horizon Forbidden West Photo Mode is quite extensive and can help take a great screenshot to the next level with its plethora of options. So let’s dive into them.
