Westworld’s second season will permit company to discover a second world teased on the finish of the primary season, and this one shall be much more violent.
Shogun World, a revamped model of Samurai World from Michael Crichton’s unique 1973 film, is being described as a spot the place company can indulge of their “fantasies with the slash of a katana.” A short description that appeared on Delos’ “Expertise” web site, a marketing-stunt-turned-ARG for the present, seems under.
“For these for whom Westworld will not be sufficient, the true connoisseur of gore can indulge their fantasies with the slash of a katana,” the outline reads. “Modeled after Japan’s Edo interval, Shogun World provides an opportunity for company to embrace their internal warrior, in a panorama of highest magnificence and darkest horror. Let your true self take form within the land the place self-discovery is an artwork type.”
Properly then. Westworld, the unique park that we have been launched to within the present’s first season, appeared to be violent sufficient, but it surely seems like issues are about to take a darker flip. We noticed glimpses of the brand new park in a latest trailer for Westworld launched by HBO. Similar to each different side of Westworld advertising, a secret code hidden inside the trailer led to a URL, which performed an much more disturbing trailer as soon as individuals visited the location. As we identified beforehand:
One specific scene exhibits James Delos, the corporate’s founder, chopping his face up whereas carrying an impish, creepy grin. One other scene appears to point out a Westworld visitor being hanged, whereas one other scene alludes to Dolores, one of many present’s hottest and rebellious hosts, main the cost in his homicide.
It seems we’re in for a gory affair this season because the hosts put together for his or her day of reckoning, taking again Westworld from the very individuals who enslaved them.
Westworld returns to HBO on April 22 at 9 p.m. ET.
