[PS4] Horizon : Zero Dawn

A new RPG from Guerilla that doesn't really explain it's world in the initial trailer very well. Gameplay looks solid enough though.



Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment America

Developer: Guerrilla Games
Platform: PlayStation®4 (PS4™)
Genre: Open World Action RPG
Launch Date: TBD 2016
Age Rating: ESRB RP
OVERVIEW:

Horizon Zero Dawn is an exhilarating new action role playing game exclusively for the PlayStation 4 system, developed by the award winning Guerrilla Games, creators of PlayStation’s venerated Killzone franchise. As Horizon Zero Dawn’s main protagonist Aloy, a skilled hunter, explore a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanized creatures. Embark on a compelling, emotional journey and unravel mysteries of tribal societies, ancient artifacts and advanced technologies that will determine the fate of this planet, and of life itself.

KEY FEATURES

A Lush Post-Apocalyptic World – How have machines come to dominate this world, and what is their purpose? What happened to the civilization here before? Scour every corner of a realm filled with ancient relics and mysterious buildings in order to uncover your past and unearth the many secrets of a forgotten land.
Nature and Machines Collide – Horizon Zero Dawn juxtaposes two contrasting elements, taking a vibrant world rich with beautiful nature and filling it with awe-inspiring highly advanced technology. This marriage creates a dynamic combination for both exploration and gameplay.
Defy Overwhelming Odds – The foundation of combat in Horizon Zero Dawn is built upon the speed and cunning of Aloy versus the raw strength and size of the machines. In order to overcome a much larger and technologically superior enemy, Aloy must use every ounce of her knowledge, intelligence, and agility to survive each encounter.
Cutting Edge Open World Tech: Stunningly detailed forests, imposing mountains, and atmospheric ruins of a bygone civilization meld together in a landscape that is alive with changing weather and a day/night cycle.

Possibly one of the biggest draws for this is the recruitment of John Gonzales (Lead Writer for Fallout: New Vegas).

I agree. Guerilla did a great job technically with Killzone, but the game felt very sterile to me and I didn't care about anyone in it.

I thought this stood out, looks great. The thing which really caught my attention was the way the character was talking to herself while fighting, saying little context-correct things. I wonder if that was just for the trailer or will be in the game.

It's a very uncharted thing to have the character patter, reminds me of the Spiderman comics too. Personally I really like it, but some people don't. The Tomb Raider reboot did it well too.

I hope it is in the final game.

A little more information is trickling out. It's completely single player, it has seasons that affect the weather and it has day/night cycles.

Looks fantastic. It's basically Zoids The Video Game, so I'm on board regardless.

I don't like it.. I find it quite the disconnect where comments like that should be coming from me/in my head, and not forced upon me.

That said, the game look looks really interesting. It's always nice to see new IPs.

Saw a trailer for this in the cinema the other night, I'd completely forgotten about it! It does look rather lush, even on the big screen.
