According to devs, there will be less healing herbs and ridge-wood to harvest on the hard mode in Horizon Zero Dawn and enemies will deal much more damage. The devs nooted that players will have to be careful and manage their skills mindfully in this mode.

Guerrilla Games is known for developing the FPS franchise, Killzone, and this is the first time the developer has developed an RPG. According to Mathis de Jonge, the director on the game, Horizon Zero Dawn will not have deep RPG mechanics, as 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 has already gone gold and is scheduled to launch on February 28, 2017, exclusive for PlayStation 4.
