Announcing Horizon Zero Dawn

Hermen Hulst's Avatar Posted by Managing Director, Guerrilla Games

We’re thrilled to introduce our brand-new third-person action RPG, Horizon Zero Dawn! Watch the trailer below to catch your first glimpse of the game:

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…

This games demo looked so good, you guys have something special here IMO. Props to you guys, I know I am very tired of Killzone games and this game looks awesome and a breath of fresh air.

The game looked so fantastic. I really excited to see more.

I liked it better when it had actual gameplay and it was called Enslaved.

    DragonIrons said:

    June 15th, 8:15 pm

    huh? You sure you’re posting on the right game? lmao….. what we saw tonight WAS actual gameplay…. d’oh

    Viewtiful_Gene said:

    June 15th, 8:18 pm

    Oh right, I forgot that scripted events also counts as pure gameplay.

    Elvick_ said:

    June 15th, 11:09 pm

    This looks nothing like Enslaved.

    PanTheMan16 said:

    June 16th, 6:39 am

    It VERY clearly resembles Enslaved, but that isn’t a bad thing. So far, it doesn’t seem terribly original, but with GG developing this game I believe it will be great.

    Jedi_Jax said:

    June 16th, 10:07 am

    Saying that this game is like enslaved is like saying that Call of Duty is the same thing as Battlefield. Yes, they are both real-world FPS games, however they are totally different. As these two games are.

Already had Batman… Uncharted and some others on my list…. but I just added this one to my wishlist. This looks like a great game.

TomHoang said:

June 15th, 8:14 pm

I loved that you guys showed ACTUAL gameplay footage instead of a pre-rendered announce trailer. The game looks amazing and I will be buying it Day 1! And YES for a badass female protagonist!


June 15th, 8:14 pm

Glad the team is finally branching out of Killzone. Seriously want this with a nice CE fig of the main character.

Ravenous74 said:

June 15th, 8:14 pm

Not taking anything away from all the other wonderful games coming out but this one truly blew my mind. I wanted to see something completly new and different and this definitely is what I was looking for… I can’t wait to play it.

fixer1989 said:

June 15th, 8:16 pm

Doesn’t the main woman looks so much like Ygritte from Game of Thrones?

    Korahn27 said:

    June 15th, 10:03 pm

    lol, my wife and I thought the same thing. She also thinks that Rose Leslie is Aloy’s voice. I’ve not found out for certain but i’ve tweeted Guerrilla Games about it to find out.

    you aren’t the only one ;)

Absolutely beautiful world!! Words cannot describe how excited I am for this!! :D

Can’t wait! Thanks Guerilla and Sony, hope the story is awesome!

Tchanku said:

This is my most anticipated game of E3 so far. Tied with the Last Guardian!

Fuhr31 said:

June 15th, 8:38 pm

Best game shown at E3 !!!!!

alhomaidah said:

June 15th, 8:52 pm

even when they showed The last gaurdian and FF7 remake this is my best of the show… I WANT this so much.

Do your best!

perrandy said:

June 15th, 8:57 pm

looks really good

Paradox_Gamer said:

June 15th, 8:58 pm

This world reminds me of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and that’s not a bad thing. Really looking forward to this.

bbswarrior_11 said:

June 15th, 9:04 pm

Even if The Last Guardian and FF VII were a big surprise and that more fun and crazy Uncharted 4 gameplay was seen, I think this game stole the show. It´s out of this world what Guerrilla did. Looks astonishing.

Bad_Brains said:

June 15th, 9:21 pm

Looks incredible. I may have had mixed feelings on Killzone after 3/4, but I am really glad to see the amazing talent at GG being able to start something new. Like all of your previous games, I will be there day 1. Can’t wait for more info and gameplay!

Realsvi said:

So, this coming out this year right lol?

CABSUB said:

Horizon zero dawn is the coolest thing I have ever seen in my entire life!

Where are the PS Vita games? :(

woodsman133 said:

June 15th, 9:54 pm

This looks amazing! So glad to finally see it revealed! My new most anticipated game, please let me throw my money at you guys!

Elvick_ said:

June 15th, 11:10 pm

Looks awesome guys, exceeded my expectations of the rumors.

NotCarolKaye said:

June 16th, 1:20 am

Hey Guerrilla, I’d be most grateful if you guys would release a less compressed downloadable version of this like you did with Shadow Fall.

Pretty please, with sugar on top. :)

FFObsessed said:

June 16th, 1:25 am

Best game of E3 and that’s saying something. Well done.

Devilking-Nikkai said:

June 16th, 4:01 am

This is literally the best I.P of E3 2015. HAND DOWN! NO NEED TO DEBATE! #GreatnessAwaits

Also btw SONY. Can you please change the rating ??? How can this game got a 1.5 rating ??? can you like changed into like Facebook ? Where only Likes count, so the trolls and haters will finally stop trolling and go away, thanks.
ragard, your biggest fan.

Devilking-Nikkai said:

June 16th, 4:02 am

Also, very well done Sony. I hope your PlayStation Experience will be even greater! #GreatnessArrives

Seluhir said:

June 16th, 5:07 am

I thought, once I saw Last Guardian, that I knew what my game of the show was going to be. I was sure of it. But then this came… and this changed everything.

This game is the best thing I’ve seen at E3 so far. Thank you for creating something so intriguing, and thank you even more for making it third person!

JynXten said:

How does this article only have 2 stars? I suspect shennanigans.

I think this is the best game I’ve seen at E3 so far.

Bellalara said:

Sony always wins.

PanTheMan16 said:

June 16th, 6:41 am

Looks good, but please tone down the narration. It’s annoying as hell that Nathan Drake has to delivery commentary about every step he takes, so please don’t make that mistake with Horizon.

PerryDave said:

June 16th, 7:12 am

I’m super excited to play this game. I think Guerrilla Games is a great studio, so seeing them do something other than Killzone is very exciting. This game will without a doubt look beautiful too!

wolfewan said:

June 16th, 9:34 am

This game looks so amazing words just can’t….Please don’t screw this game up make it a amazing and beautiful as possible.
I am going to buy a playstation just to play this…

Seems interesting to me but I would need to see more to really make a decision on this I know we still have a long time to decide.

Clearly game of show by light years.

I just can’t stop watching the demo over and over again.

My wallet is ready.

This is without a doubt the best game to come out of E3 this year, it shows such promise, I really hope the studio is able to deliver.

RionHunter said:

June 17th, 4:58 pm

Who the hell is giving this game 2 stars? wtf This is one of the best trailers at E3. I cannot wait for this game.

nattylite29 said:

June 17th, 6:03 pm

This looks f***king SWEET. Wow I was very impressed. can’t wait for whenever in 2016 this comes

QuirkyQuick said:

June 18th, 1:57 pm

This game won E3! My jaw hit the floor, when I saw the robot dinosaur! I rarely purchase a game on day one. This is going to be one of those few exceptions. Aloy is such a badass! I can’t wait!

Truth be told, this game is the dark horse that stole the show.
