Horizon Forbidden West is literally hours from launch at the time of writing but it’s a project called Play and Plant that’s making the news and the premise behind the project is well worth the investment in Aloy’s PlayStation 5 debut alone. It’s not a usual thing to see prior to a big launch so it may raise an eyebrow or two.
Alongside the impending release of Horizon Forbidden West, it seems Sony has a new partnership. For this Play and Plant Sony have a collaboration working with the Arbor Day Foundation. For those wondering what this all means, Sony is going to plant a tree for every gamer who unlocked a certain trophy for Horizon Forbidden West.
How Play & Plant Works
The collaboration Sony has with the Arbor Day Foundation is to aid a forest restoration project. So for every player unlocking one of the early trophies called “Reached the Daunt” means one tree will be donated to this project. However, it’s not only one reforestation project but three. Where these projects are based across the US. The locations are as follows.
- Torreya State Park, Florida
- Douglas County Forest, Wisconsin
- Sheep Fire Private Lands, California
What makes these important
In Torreya State Park the longleaf pine population has been devastated. And the reason for this was both natural disasters and deforestation. For Douglas County, the local communities are at risk as the deforestation has caused damage to the watershed protection abilities the forest offers
Sheep Fire Private Lands is picked as grey wolves have returned. Hunting nearly made them extinct in the region. This project helps their natural habitat thrive and grow. This promotion ends on the 25th of March or when the projects are complete. To complete all of them, the estimate is 288 thousand trees will need planted. It is nice to hear positive news where gaming works together to aid our planet. For those wanting to install, make space on your PlayStation 5 with this being a hefty game.
