A Deeper Look At The World Of Horizon: Zero Dawn
Guerrilla Games is currently working on Horizon: Zero Dawn, one of the most promising games that’ll be released within the next year.
This title development began in 2011, after Killzone 3’s release. When Guerrilla Games thought about the idea for a new videogame, about 40 concepts were pitched. Horizon: Zero Dawn was one of them, and it was considered one of the most risky. But it seems the team liked to risk as the development phase started early.
Horizon: Zero Dawn was officially announced at E3 2015 and it received four nominations for the 2016 Best of E3 Game Critics Awards/Best of Show, Best Original Game, Best Console Game and Best Action/Adventure Game, eventually winning the award for Best Original Game.
By the way, this game is coming good and Sony released a video showing more from the world that we will see in Horizon: Zero Dawn. This video focuses on locations, day/night cycle and dynamic weather and, according to PlayStation Blog, the feeling is amazing.
Besides the interaction between the player and the world of Horizon Zero Dawn, it’s the natural feel of the machine’s ecology that really impressed us. We saw a lot of Grazers roaming around, following their own instincts; startle them, and they’ll bolt or stampede, fleeing from danger, just as you’d expect to see on a nature documentary. The overall feel is one of a real living world that has evolved in harmony with the machines. In this sense, humanity is only a distant memory.
Here you can find some screenshots of the game instead, showing different environments.
Horizon: Zero Dawn is releasing for Sony’s PlayStation 4 on February 28, 2017 in North America, March 1 in Europe and March 3 in the UK. It will support PlayStation 4 enhanced features and HDR.
