What are Flashpoint decisions in Horizon Forbidden West

All you need to know about the Flashpoint System.

In modern-day gaming, there are a lot of mechanics used to help players feel like they have more control over the story. This is true in Horizon Forbidden West, where the game uses a familiar dialogue choice system. Keep reading below to learn about Flashpoint decisions.

Flashpoint decisions are found when speaking with certain characters in the game and allow you to select from a few different dialogue options. This gives you a new way to experience the story, by developing Aloy's personality and how she handles certain interactions in the world of Horizon Forbidden West.

There are three types of choices you can choose from:

  • Confront
  • Compassion
  • Insight

These decisions were available in the first game of the series, Horizon Zero Dawn. You shouldn't expect these decisions to alter the ending of your story, but they will affect small parts of the game, such as future dialouge with the character you are speaking with.

This also helps to add slight changes to the game for those who are going to play through multiple times.
