Horizon Zero Dawn Preview – Guerrillas new project unveiled




A real surprise was not. The ladies and gentlemen of Guerrilla Games were spotted in Los Angeles and such delegation not sending you to the other side of the ocean if you want to show anything. Moreover went long been rumored that the Amsterdam studio his new project this E3 would announce, and it was going to be a role-playing game. And yet, few people Horizon Zero Dawn really have seen it coming. With Monday announced rpg Guerrilla differs significantly from the Killzone proven formula. The studio is a very different direction.

Appears on: PlayStation 4

Horizon Zero Dawn is a role-playing game with a post-apocalyptic setting. Then you know nothing, because now you see a game like Fallout for you. Such a game, this is certainly not, but the studio is aware that there are now quite a lot of games with such a setting. Therefore Guerrilla describes the setting itself as “post-post-apocalyptic. Where most games namely playing a hundred years in the future, Horizon takes place a thousand years later. In the game world of Horizon is human civilization as we know it was lost for a thousand years and is the only planet inhabited by people.

This has many implications for the game world. Nature has reclaimed entire cities. The traces of civilization are still visible, but intertwined with nature. We see how all kinds of recognizable objects, like cars, are literally grown with trees. It creates a surreal, almost mystical atmosphere, which raises many questions: what lives in the remains of the cities? What is the role of technology even if the people who conceived and understood the technology for a thousand years dead? And why are there anywhere on dinosaurs-like creatures around, equipped with all kinds of technical tools and even armor?

Those are some of the questions that the player can set themselves, and they also form part of the issues where Aloy has to deal with daily. Aloy is the main female character of this story, and at the same time a fine example of the setting. She wears namely anything resembling Indian clothes and fight with bow and arrow. That betrays the humanity which has gone live at that time return to a more primitive lifestyle. At the same time, however, the arc itself or high-tech, and the same applies to various elements in the environment, including the mechanical beasts. How is this strange combination has been established, is not really clear. Figuring out how the world has come in the state in which it is placed is part of the story of Horizon.
