    Horizon Zero Dawn

    Horizon Zero Dawn is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

    The plot revolves around Aloy, a hunter and archer who lives in a world overrun by robots. Having been cloistered her whole life, she sets out to discover the dangers that kept her sheltered for so long. The character makes use of ranged, melee weapons and stealth tactics to combat the mechanised creatures whose remains can also be looted for resources. The game features an open world environment for Aloy to explore, divided into tribes that hold side quests to accomplish while the main story guides her throughout the whole world.



    Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game played from a third-person view. Players take control of Aloy, a hunter and archer, as she progresses through a post-apocalyptic land ruled by robotic creatures known simply as "Machines". The Machines' components, such as electricity and the metal they are composed of, are vital to Aloy's survival, and she can loot their corpses to find useful resources for crafting. Aloy can use a variety of ways to kill enemies, such as setting traps like tripwires, shooting enemies with arrows, using explosives, and melee combat. She can essentially hack a selection of creatures, turning them into makeshift vehicles or travelling companions. Aloy can also hide in foliage and ambush nearby enemies to ensure immediate takedowns. Using a "focus scan" allows Aloy to determine her enemies' susceptibilities, identify their location, the particular level they possess and the nature of loot they will drop.

    When I first saw the game, I was mildly intrigued. This seems to have diminished over time. I still think I'm going to grab it.
    Consoles I've had the pleasure of owning.

    It has been a long time coming.

    We don't want them to bombard us with marketing and promises, but at the same time they need to keep people interested otherwise it just will not sell when it gets released.

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    I think you're right there. Developers can overhype a game to much, and end up losing the initial spark. 'No Mans Sky' as an example.
    That said, I'll be getting this in March. The game and a 4K TV as a treat to the wife and myself.

    Heh - I didn't want to mention NMS, but that is exactly what I was thinking of.

    Sorry dude, it's unlikely now that Guerilla studio has closed. Unless someone else picks it up, which I'll definitely buy.

    Don't think the studio in Amsterdam is closing, just Cambridge.

    Yup, they closed the Cambridge studio which really only did the Vita Killzone. The main Guerilla Games in Amsterdam is alive and well.
