Visitors to this weeks PlayStation’s Paris Conference had a chance to view Horizon Zero Dawn, a new action role playing game exclusively for the PlayStation® 4.
In Horizon Zero Dawn you take control of a hunter and archer Aloy. She must make her way through an expansive, beautiful and terrifying post-apocalyptic world. The lands are ruled by robot dinosaurs and other mechanical creatures.
The game’s role-playing mechanics have been likened to Skyrim and Assassin’s Creed. Creature are taken down by setting traps and tripwires or by shooting it down with arrows. Hand to hand tactics combined with stealth skills can also be employed. Aloy can loot the remains of the mechanical creatures for parts, essential for survival.
The game is developed by the award winning Guerrilla Games, creators of PlayStation’s Killzone franchise and has been under development since 2011. Its due for release in 2016 for PS4
