Horizon: Zero Dawn has passed 7.6 million sales as it celebrates its first birthday


It’s only been a year since Horizon: Zero Dawn released on PlayStation 4, but it’s been an eventful one.

In the last 12 months, the game has managed to sell over 7.6 million copies worldwide, which has given it the honor of being the best-selling new first-party franchise launch on PlayStation 4 as of Feb. 28. 

In celebration of the milestone, there are some special Horizon: Zero Dawn goodies coming down the pipeline. For starters, there are free Horizon: Zero Dawn PlayStation 4 avatars included in an avatar bundle with a Photo Mode theme. It’s up for grabs via the PlayStation Store tomorrow, and the avatars will feature most of the prominent Horizon characters. The Photo Mode theme has been created with some of the most impressive Photo Mode snapshots taken by players. 

There’s also a special video that goes behind the scenes of the game’s musical score. Music supervisor Lucas van Tol takes viewers behind the music in the video. 

Additionally, throughout March, you can get a special discount on the Modern Icons Aloy statue, with 25 percent off of her using the code “anniversary.”

The game itself is also on sale at 35 percent off for PlayStation Plus members and 30 percent off for everyone else. This sale will be going until March 6. Sony says there’s still more surprises to come as the Horizon birthday celebration continues.
