Horizon: Zero Dawn is under development at Guerilla Games and it is going to take us to an unusual post-apocalyptic world. You will be taken to a place where machines rule planet earth. According to the game’s description:
Play as Aloy, a young hunter on a quest to discover her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past. Shunned by her own tribe since birth, Aloy has learned to harness her agility, cunning, and deadly aim to hunt the Machines, defend against rival tribes, and survive in the unforgiving wilds.
The game is being developed using Decima, a modified version of the Guerilla’s in-house engine. Hideo Kojima helped the studio modify certain aspects of the engine to improve the cinematic part of Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Decima is a powerful engine that is also being used to develop Death Stranding.
According to Hideo Kojima, Death Stranding engine “enables us to go to the mars but even to the Jupiter.” Kojima further stated that Guerilla Games’ engine is perfectly suited for their needs of creating a better and open world game.
Horizon: Zero Dawn is releasing for PlayStation 4 February 28 in North America.
