Horizon Zero Dawn - Postapocalyptic cavewoman vs Zoids




As you can see in the trailer, we’ve decided to push the release date for Horizon Zero Dawn to February 28, 2017. It wasn’t an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it. However, we also want to ensure that Horizon Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn.

I think Zero Dawn Horizon makes more sense.


Please, Dawn: Horizon Zero is the way to go.

Or just HoriZeroDawn.


Story Trailer

This continues to impress. I’m getting really excited for this one, even if it’s just Far Cry 5 in terms of gameplay (not that there is anything wrong with that) the setting and the story beats they hint at are pretty fun looking.


I like that the cinematic video fleshed the world a bit more. But I don’t like that it more or less spoil the whole story. This feels like a game that is better to experience blind


Looks like a good voice cast. The bad guy sounded like Crispin Freeman. Ashly Burch in lead role.


Pretty pumped for this one. I can dust off my PS4!


Looks like press got to play a little of this recently, some sort of embargo may have been lifted as I’ve seen hands on stuff from Gamespot and IGN (so far).

IGN had a 12 minute gameplay video w/commentary I’m about to watch.


Interesting comment in that video… “this is what Far Cry Primal should have been”.

I may have to pick this one up.


Since Far Cry Primal was the best game of 2016, thats some crazy stuff to be sprouting.

This game DOES look like everything I want, though.


Jeff Cannata was very positive on it in the new DLC, especially about the 4K HDR version. Described it as a hybrid between The Witcher 3 and Arkham Asylum.


Oh please be good! It would be nice if my PS4 was more than a $400 ticket to play Bloodborne.


Lots of footage out there, sounds like. I was skimming through the NeoGAF thread and there is a ton of discussion and dissection of screenshots, but for my money I was most interested in the excellent .gif files they were putting up. I’ll put a few up myself, but first I also found this excellent series of small bites of gameplay running at 4k on a PS4 Pro. Looks just incredible.

Stunning lighting effects:


Thanks @Scott_Lufkin! This game went from not on my radar at all to one of my most anticipated of the year just in the last few weeks. I wonder if this will be the game that convinces me to trade in my perfectly good original PS4 for a Pro.


Looks like the review embargo lifted this morning. I’m not linking to any specific ones but it seems to be really well received and there are a lot of superlatives being thrown out in summaries. Really can’t wait for my preorder to arrive now!


88 on Open Critic and Metacritic. This pleases me greatly.

Wow, I don’t remember the last time Jeff Gerstmann liked a video game! :)


Looks like it’s doing really well. PS exclusives often don’t make it to the PC right? On one hand a shame, on the other I’m a bit open worlded out, so maybe just as well for me :)


Usually no. Also Jim Sterling, who is also open worlded out, loves it.


Horizon: Zero Dawn is just brilliant. I speak as a critic who has played more “open sandbox” games than any one human should and has grown so very weary of them. I should have gotten sick of this thing in an hour, but I’ve been glued to it for days and days and I don’t want it to end. I love existing in this world – a world of desperate survival but of growing culture and a sense of hope. A world of giant metal animals that promise some breathtaking fights.
