OVERVIEW:

Horizon Zero Dawn is an exhilarating new action role playing game exclusively for the PlayStation 4 system, developed by the award winning Guerrilla Games, creators of PlayStation’s venerated Killzone franchise. As Horizon Zero Dawn’s main protagonist Aloy, a skilled hunter, explore a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanized creatures. Embark on a compelling, emotional journey and unravel mysteries of tribal societies, ancient artifacts and advanced technologies that will determine the fate of this planet, and of life itself.

KEY FEATURES

A Lush Post-Apocalyptic World – How have machines come to dominate this world, and what is their purpose? What happened to the civilization here before? Scour every corner of a realm filled with ancient relics and mysterious buildings in order to uncover your past and unearth the many secrets of a forgotten land.
Nature and Machines Collide – Horizon Zero Dawn juxtaposes two contrasting elements, taking a vibrant world rich with beautiful nature and filling it with awe-inspiring highly advanced technology. This marriage creates a dynamic combination for both exploration and gameplay.
Defy Overwhelming Odds – The foundation of combat in Horizon Zero Dawn is built upon the speed and cunning of Aloy versus the raw strength and size of the machines. In order to overcome a much larger and technologically superior enemy, Aloy must use every ounce of her knowledge, intelligence, and agility to survive each encounter.
Cutting Edge Open World Tech: Stunningly detailed forests, imposing mountains, and atmospheric ruins of a bygone civilization meld together in a landscape that is alive with changing weather and a day/night cycle.
Now THIS was a fantastic reveal. Looks sooo much like Witcher 3 (GG have hired a quest designer and cinematic artist from CDPR). Don't fuck this up GG.

Did not like it dinosaurs would be great in it setting is great nature took over but machine dinos ruined it for me more natural predators is original dinos with flesh and blood now that would be awesome not machine ones.

Completely agree with this. The 'X marks the spot' kind of boss encounters need to end. Guerrilla Games should look towards From Software for inspiration on that front.

Even in it's current state the combat is a step up from the likes of Witcher.

Wait, this is a PS exclusive. Why did Necro make this thread? Why didn't CT? Don't screw with the status quo, guys.

Game looks interesting, I'm glad they revealed it with some actual gameplay. I wonder why they're hunting dino bots in this world.

The mechs are the biggest twist/mystery of this game. Gamespot guy asked a few times but GG ain't adding anymore yet!

First PS4 exclusive I'm genuinely interested in. Though RIME looks great too. Hopefully this lives upto the genre-defining standards set by Witcher 3.

I was awestruck after The Last Guardian's reveal. By the time I came back to senses, they were done showing Horizon and a handful of other games lol.

As to why Necrokiller is suddenly interested in a PS4 exclusive, here's the reason:

- They hired CD Projekt Red quest designers and other experienced RPG developers.
- Lead cinematic artist/cinematic director of The Witcher 3
God forbid, if TW3's combat designer had a part in Horizon's development, I'd have permanently erased it from my memory.

    amen !! i thought Horizon 2 would be my most anticipated game and I didn't even think there would be a new God of War game in development and projected for release this soon. I was expecting 2023 or so at the earliest.

    that looked like it was done for demo purposes, i highly doubt the final game will have 1 hit kills like that
    it won't of course but someone not acquainted with Souls games might think the game is easy like that

    Yeah, i don't want the difficulty option. That would be a different game altogether lol

    The recent gameplay showed one hit kills (but didn't say it was the tutorial section). I think they are trying to fish casual gamers. :p

    a difficulty option goes against the core design of the game. That would be terrible.

    And Godfall is $10 cheaper on PC so not sure how they can justify charging $70 on PS5 lol

    But it shouldn't be a full priced game (which is now $70)
    yeah considering that Shadow of the Colossus remake was $40, the $70 price is a rip off
