Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing video game developed by Guerrilla Games. Published by Sony Interactive Entertainment exclusively for PlayStation 4, the game features an open world environment for players to explore.
The game’s plot revolves around Aloy, a hunter and anchor who lives in a world overrun by robots. Having been cloistered her whole life; she sets out to discover the dangers that kept her sheltered for so long. The character makes use of ranged, melee weapons and stealth tactics to combat the mechanised creatures whose remains can also be looted for resources.
Aloy gets to explore the open-world environment. Played from a third person view, Aloy uses a variety of ways to kill enemies, such as shooting enemies with arrows, using explosives and melee combat.
What gamers can expect:
A “focus scan” allows Aloy to determine her enemies’ susceptibilities, identify their location, the particular level they possess and the nature of the loot they will drop.
In the game, you get to take on the role of skilled hunter Aloy as you explore a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanised creatures.
Unlike the cold, grim Killzone brand, Horizon is a lush, vibrant game set in a world recovering from a near extinction-level event. The lush environment adds a further layer of mystery and intrigue to the game.
Guerilla Games has been developing the game since 2011 and it won the award for Best Original Game at the Game Critics’ Awards in 2015 and 2016.
Horizon Zero Dawn is one of many new games released recently that feature an open world to explore. A range of melee weapons are also used to make gaming more fun, with players getting to explore a variety of stealth tactics in combat.
