E3 Trailer:



IGN Rewind :



Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a lush, beautiful open world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of a forgotten civilization. It is a world where mankind is not the dominant species, and highly advanced machines sit at the top of the food chain. You play as Aloy, a young outcast from a tribal society, who has learned to hunt the machines. Intent on unraveling the many mysteries that surround her, Aloy embarks on a quest that will lead her to discover her own destiny.
Along the way, Aloy will face off against an entire menagerie of machines – some traveling in herds, others roaming in solitude, all of them presenting a formidable danger. You will need to learn their behaviors, attack patterns and weak points in order to survive. You must use the beautiful environments to your advantage, and employ stealth, agility, and cunning to approach your prey unseen.
Of course, you won’t be hunting unarmed in Horizon Zero Dawn. Aloy is capable of combining natural materials with machine parts to turn them into ingenious weapons, ammunition, traps, and tools. By cleverly using the right items at the right moment, you can exploit weak points and bring down even the largest machines. Unfortunately, the most dangerous machines aren’t necessarily the biggest…

Continue fawning over this game please.

    It sucks there's a lack of interest in this game. This is the best new IP to come out of E3 this year.

    More info on Horizon: Zero Dawn: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2015/06/15/announcing-horizon-zero-dawn/

    So it's not just an action game but a role playing one too wow awesome! This is straight up one of the best game trailers I've ever seen, totally blew everything even DOOM 4 out of the water, I'm in love with Fallout+Transformers+Turok+Tomb Raider: The game

    Also this is really awesome to see Guerilla Games a developer who has made nothing but Killzone games branch out and make something that's very different than what they know how to do, I see some similarity between this and Killzone franchise especially in the art of the mech mastodon which is clearly inspired by Killzone tech, but it's still definitely a financial risk so Kudos to SONY and Guerilla Games for trying somethign new rather than just making a new Killzone. Hope more developers branch out of their comfort zone so we get unique surprises like this, I think I've just become convinved to get a PS4 sooner rather thna later wow.

    Wow this game is already shaping up to be insane.

    Just dropping in my support for this game, I'm definitely keeping my eye on this one. I'm quite pleased they didn't just do another Killzone because I literally was not expecting anything out of Guerilla that would make me look in thier direction. Seems like they're taking a bit of a Souls approach to the game judging by that article and that's always a good thing.

    Really looking forward to this.

    Day One supporter; the game's atmosphere is so charming, and the dynamic combat, crafting, RPG elements; it's kind of "Monster Hunter meets The Witcher meets Enslaved"; the fact that it's single player focused just makes it more interesting to me, but it would be nice if multi-player elements like online raids and big boss fights were added as DLC later.This game was the biggest surprise of E3, and the new IP i'm looking forward the most. I can only imagine Guerilla Game's executives suggesting the idea of this game to SCE.

    - GG: Mr. Yoshida, we have an offer.

    - Shuhei: Sure, what is it?

    - GG: We have been working on a new project, and we'd like the approval of SCE. It has robots... and dinosaurs.

    - Shu: So, the next Killzone already? Wonderful!. I'm fully aware Shadowfall was not nearly the limit of your creative minds, with the pressure of being a launch title and all. But tell me, why would you put dinosaurs in Helghan?

    - GG: I'm sorry mr. Yoshida, I may have made a poor choice of words; we meant we're working on a new IP Action-RPG, with robot-dinosaurs and a redhead archer set in a post-post apocalyptic future.

    - Shu: Say no more. Just tell me how much.

    Is the bow/arrow your main weapon for most of the game?

    Are there any close distance melee weapons or hand to hand combos?

    The bow is the main weapon, but you have a spear for melee combat. No hand to hand stuff other than stealth kills on human enemies, AFAIK.

    They need to work in more control over overridden machines. I want to be able to give them commands(follow, stay, attack, roam, etc) and mount more than just a handful of them. All the work it takes to override a, say, Sawtooth or Stormbird and all they do is patrol their usual area. WTF is the point? Bitch you better follow me until one of us dies.....and it BETTER not be me.

    Well The Witcher was already locked into a pre-existing universe so I would the story for this isn't a retread of style and themes and character types.
