More details on PS4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn

There was so much news yesterday that it was hard to pick out the good bits. A Final Fantasy VII remake, Shemue 3, a new Media Molecule title named dreams and of course, The Last Guardian. You can view all those trailers here.

One of the games which stuck out for us though, was Guerrilla Games 'Horizon: Zero Dawn, a new third-person action-RPG heading for PS4.

The gameplay showed a character hunting robotic dinosaurs in a open world environment.

A fact sheet we now have from Sony explains that you play as main protagonist Aloy, a skilled hunter and explore a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanised creatures. You'll 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.


- A Lush Post-Apocalyptic World: How have machines come to dominate this world, and what is their purpose? What happened to the civilisation 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 civilisation meld together in a landscape that is alive with changing weather and a day/night cycle.

The game is due for release in 2016.

This looks good - like an assassin creed meets farcry kind of game. I like the idea too - they are cavemen but AFTER us, be interesting to find out who or what have built the robotic dinosaurs though
