In Horizon Zero Dawn players take control of protagonist Aloy, an efficient hunter and archer, as she makes her way through a post-apocalyptic land, ruled by mechanized creatures, such as robotic dinosaurs. The game is set in a future 1000 years from present, a world where human civilization has collapsed, with the world now dominated by gigantic robotic creatures, which have quickly become the strongest creatures in the world.
Here are some key features for what promises to be one of the must have games of 2016, also below, are a few screenshots from Horizon Zero Dawn.
A Lush Post-Apocalyptic World – How have machines dominated this world, and what is their purpose? What happened to the civilization 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 civilization meld together in a landscape that is alive with changing weather systems and a full day/night cycle.
