With copies already being sent out to media, it’s been revealed that the Horizon Zero Dawn review embargo will lift on Monday, February 20 – more than a week ahead of launch. According to NeoGAF user Kenzodielocke, who heard the news from a reviewer, the download size is 45GB.

After detailing the Thunderjaw and Snapmaw machines yesterday, Sony brought out new videos for the Behemoth and Stormbird today:

Behemoth (Transport Class)

The Behemoth is a huge, rugged transport-class machine that uses anti-gravity technology to transfer precious cargo from smaller acquisition-class machines into its stomach container. When provoked, it may charge at the enemy or use its anti-gravity unit to hurl heavy objects. It is also equipped with a set of grinding drills that allow it to grind and propel rock projectiles.

Stormbird (Combat Class)

Soaring through the sky at high altitude, the fearsome Stormbird is a combat-class machine that can swoop down and attack its prey with tremendous force. It is just as dangerous on land as it is in the air, with a variety of swift and powerful attacks that range from wing blasts to claw slashes. Its enormous metal wings are capable of collecting and discharging the electricity in the air.

On Twitter, Game Director Mathijs de Jonge said the Horizon Zero Dawn Trophy list should be posted “soonish,” the planned social aspects “got dropped in favor of other features,” you can choose a different voice language and subtitle language, and you can unlock all of the skills one by one.

Horizon Zero Dawn releases on February 28 in North America and March 1 in Europe for PlayStation 4. Expect to see our review in the coming weeks.
