Horizon Zero Dawn – Everything You Need to Know

February 19, 2017Written by Michael Briers


January is so often a quiet corridor for new releases but thanks to Gravity Rush 2, Yakuza 0, and Resident Evil 7, players have been treated to a handful of enticing titles to break up the annual lull. Toss in the recent release of Team Ninja’s tough-as-nails Nioh and it would seem that 2017 is off to a strong start — and things are only going to get better.

Case in point: Horizon Zero Dawn. Guerrilla’s bold and indeed beautiful new IP that’s on the verge of becoming the first PlayStation heavy-hitter of 2017. Originally scheduled to launch late last year, the studio postponed Aloy’s grand adventure in order to ensure that the dev team was given the necessary time to deliver on its ambitious vision. And what a vision it is. Providing you haven’t spent the past 18 months hunting robo-dinos out in the wild, you’ll know that Horizon is rooted in a lush, post-post-apocalyptic world, one in which humanity is no longer perched at the top of the food chain. In our stead, a new species has taken over the planet, and their existence is seemingly crucial to the mysterious plot of Zero Dawn.

But let’s not spoil things ahead of schedule. In anticipation of its PS4 launch on February 28 (March 1 for those in Europe), we’ve scoured the four corners of the internet — and the PSLS archives — to compile all the necessary information you could ever need pertaining to Guerrilla’s imminent new IP.

Stay tuned for our Horizon Zero Dawn set to hit the site this coming week. You won’t want to miss it.
