The original Horizon: Zero Dawn was released on PlayStation 4 in 2017. It is an open world game set in a repulsed world filled with giant robots resembling dinosaurs many years after an apocalyptic event. The game was a great success, with more than 10 million copies sold. A PC port will be released later this year. It looked like other open-world games, such as the Assassin’s Creed franchise and new Tomb Raider titles, but Horizon managed to stand out with its interesting world and characters, including the main heroine Aloy. She is back in the suite.
As its name suggests, the game takes Aloy to the west, discovering new places and new people … and a giant robotic elephant that emits strong The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ambiance.
Before Horizon, Guerrilla Games made a name for itself with the Killzone franchise, a series of first-person shooters. The latest entry in this franchise, Killzone: Shadow Fall, was a PS4 launch title in 2013.
