Don’t know if Guerilla Games is taking a break from Killzone but if they are, they used that time away to make a new title called Horizon: Zero Dawn. The game made its debut moments ago during Sony’s E3 press conference and it looks really interesting.
The trailer involves a female warrior exploring what looks like an ancient cave and its paintings while a narrator explains the evolution of technology along with the rise of civilization and the fall of the future through nature and its attempt to reclaim humanity’s creations. Through tribes man survived through hunting tactics and combining brand new technologies with ancient designs.
At one point, it looks as though some foe finds the female warrior hiding in the grass and a chase ensues. She takes the dinosaur-like creature out with a knife, and apologizes. Her rest is short as the scuffle startled a herd of robotic deer and out comes a mechanized T-Rex. Unable to escape she engages the T-Rex in combat she uses her bow amongst other things to take him down. No rest for the weary as not long after a mechanized pterodactyl swoops in screeching at the heroine before the trailer ends.
Can’t say I’ve ever seen anything like it (which is a first), but maybe Sony is on to something. It is a beautiful game and one that should entice many when Horizon: Zero Dawn makes its way to the Playstation 4.
