Sony Will Plant A Number Of Trees When Players Unlock A Trophy In Horizon Forbidden West

Sony has announced a cam­paign sur­round­ing Hori­zon For­bid­den West that will bring the gam­ing com­pa­ny to plant trees in real life to help refor­esta­tion projects around the US.

The cam­paign is called Play and Plant. Every time a play­er unlocks the “Reached the Daunt” Tro­phy in the game by March 25th, Sony will plant a tree. This tro­phy is unlocked ear­ly on in the game, so Sony should quick­ly reach its cap of 288,000 trees.

For the release of Hori­zon For­bid­den West, we want to do some­thing to help nature… with you. Just like how Aloy fights to save the Earth in the game, we can do some­thing togeth­er to help our plan­et,” Sony said.

This is to sup­port the Arbor Day Foun­da­tion and the UN’s Play4Forests cam­paign, which uses gam­ing endeav­ors to raise aware­ness about sav­ing forests, as well as cli­mate concerns.

The trees will be plant­ed in three dif­fer­ent areas with­in the US, includ­ing the Dou­glass Coun­try For­est in Wis­con­sin, the Sheep Fire Pri­vate Lands in Cal­i­for­nia, and the Tor­reya State Park in Flori­da. In 2020, the Sheep Fire burned more than 30,000 acres, mak­ing refor­esta­tion sig­nif­i­cant­ly impor­tant. Par­tic­u­lar­ly, grey wolves have begun to return to the region after being hunt­ed to near extinction.

The Dou­glass Coun­ty For­est needs more trees to help with pre­serv­ing rare plants and wildlife, while the Tor­reya State Park has seen nat­ur­al dis­as­ters and defor­esta­tion to its lon­gleaf pine population.
