Horizon Zero Dawn is an RPG but the devs have confirmed that the game will not have deep RPG mechanics. According to Mathis de Jonge, the director on the game, the developers did want to make the game open world but did not intend to develop an RPG from the start but it happened organically during the course of the development.
We’ve been working at this concept from a development point of view- what works well for this game? What works for this concept? And then we’ve added these features. We haven’t said from the start that this will be an RPG, and it needs to have these features- it never happened like that. It was always decided that we would move from the conceptual point of view, an [go by] what works best for the game.
Horizon Zero Dawn is an open-world action adventure RPG developed by Guerrilla Games and is scheduled to launch on February 28, 2017, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
