Two years after the game released, Horizon Zero Dawn sales have broken 10 million copies sold worldwide. The game, Guerrilla Games’s first non-Killzone property since 2004, won critical acclaim for its world, setting, and plot, and even two years on has remained one of the Playstation 4’s most well-regarded games even today.
Horizon Zero Dawn focuses on a post-apocalyptic world where humans make use of a mixture of primitive weapons and advanced technology to battle against the robotic fauna that now dominate the world. Players take on the role of Aloy, a young woman who finds herself caught up in a war of conquest between the world’s various tribes and an evil horde of other humans who worship a malevolent AI.
The game proved to be enormously popular on its release, with Aloy becoming so popular that Monster Hunter World offered an option to equip an Aloy skin on your character and dress up your feline Palico companion as a Watcher, one of the many different kinds of robotic animals that you’ll likely hunt for components in Horizon.
Horizon Zero Dawn sales were also high enough for the game to get a DLC a year after release, allowing Aloy access to a whole new area of the map, a hostile and frozen mountain where the fiercest beasts and hunters were known to lurk.
But the fact that the game has managed ten million Horizon Zero Dawn sales worldwide over just the course of two years likely means that Guerrilla definitely made its mark on the Playstation 4, and showed that they could do a lot more than Killzone games.
If you haven’t experienced how good Horizon Zero Dawn is and have a Playstation 4, you can likely find Horizon Zero Dawn available on the Store. And considering how dead this time of year is for many games, it makes a great way to pass the time until other games you’ve been anticipating become available.
