Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusives for 2017 and the game is just over a month away from launch. We are all familiar with leaks and rumors in the game industry and this time some story details about the upcoming game has been leaked.
The leak comes from 4Chan(via NeoGaf) and this leak reveals the ending for the game. So a SPOILER WARNING is in order as below is the leaked ending for the game. If you don’t want the game spoiled for you just stop here.
The story twist is that this is the second cycle in this world. The main character, Aloy, discovers by visiting the Ancient Ruins of civilization at the end of the game that the ‘humans’ you see walking around, including you, are simply bio-machines from the first cycle that used biomatter to replicate, like humans reproduce. Humanity has been gone EVEN LONGER than we, the players, think at first. The corruption is never fully explained, it’s just established that it’s from an unknown source within the ruins, but there’s a hint it might have more importance in a sequel. The ending has Aloy basically choose between wiping out the robots or the bio-machines, since the robots were initially programmed by the original humans to wipe out the living creatures the bio-machines that yearned to live like humans hundreds of thousands of years ago feed off.
Zero Dawn is the name of the software found in a huge building in the Ancient Ruins that can shut off the beings roaming the world or your own race
