At E3 2015, Guerrilla Games and Sony announced new PlayStation 4 exclusive IP, Horizon: Zero Dawn. The publisher/developer duo showcased a glorious looking gameplay featuring female lead protagonist with Red hair batting against Mech Dinosaurs. Just a few minutes ago, Sony updated PlayStation Blog with first in-game 1080p screenshots and listing out details on what to expect from Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Guerrilla Games’ Hermen Hulst said:
“Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a lush, beautiful open world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of a forgotten civilization. It is a world where mankind is not the dominant species, and highly advanced machines sit at the top of the food chain. You play as Aloy, a young outcast from a tribal society, who has learned to hunt the machines. Intent on unraveling the many mysteries that surround her, Aloy embarks on a quest that will lead her to discover her own destiny.
Along the way, Aloy will face off against an entire menagerie of machines – some traveling in herds, others roaming in solitude, all of them presenting a formidable danger. You will need to learn their behaviors, attack patterns and weak points in order to survive. You must use the beautiful environments to your advantage, and employ stealth, agility, and cunning to approach your prey unseen.
Of course, you won’t be hunting unarmed in Horizon Zero Dawn. Aloy is capable of combining natural materials with machine parts to turn them into ingenious weapons, ammunition, traps, and tools. By cleverly using the right items at the right moment, you can exploit weak points and bring down even the largest machines. Unfortunately, the most dangerous machines aren’t necessarily the biggest…”
Horizon Zero Dawn is scheduled for a 2016 release. Check out the screenshots below.
