Completing the Experience: 3D Audio and the Sound of Horizon Zero Dawn

Posted by on Aug 31, 2017

Earlier this year, we travelled to Amsterdam to talk to Guerrilla’s audio team about the importance of sound in Horizon Zero Dawn and the ways the game makes use of 3D audio technology built into the Platinum Wireless Headset. The resulting video, which you can watch above, provides a brief but tantalizing glimpse into the world of audio creation.

Horizon Zero Dawn Patch 1.32 Introduces ‘Story’ Difficulty

Posted by on Aug 21, 2017

While development on the Horizon Zero Dawn expansion The Frozen Wilds is in full swing, we’re still finding time to add improvements to the main game. Last month’s Patch 1.30 added a new difficulty setting called ‘Ultra Hard’ which, as the name suggests, provides a greater challenge for hardcore Horizon Zero Dawn players. Today’s patch adds a difficulty level that does quite the opposite: ‘Story’ difficulty allows you to immerse yourself in the narrative of Horizon Zero Dawn and the exploration of Aloy’s world without having to worry too much about combat.

Among the most noticeable changes, ‘Story’ difficulty boosts the player-inflicted damage and reduces the player-received damage considerably, making the combat encounters manageable for less experienced players. It is our hope that the new difficulty setting will help us welcome more players into Aloy’s quest to discover her identity and the mysteries of the world she inhabits. In addition to the ‘Story’ difficulty, Patch 1.32 includes several fixes as outlined in the patch notes.

Anatomy of a Sidequest: Horizon Zero Dawn’s Redmaw

Posted by on May 08, 2017

Deep in Carja territory stalks a machine that strikes fear into the heart of every hunter. The legendary Redmaw. A mechanical beast of such strength and ferocity that it has killed everyone who has crossed its path. And you can bet you’ll be the one to finally bring it down.

Redmaw’s story threads throughout the Hunter’s Lodge quest line in Horizon Zero Dawn. Tales of its victims mark your entry into this old-fashioned club of big machine hunters, and tales of the glory its killer will receive accompany your ascent through its ranks. It’s a carefully planned setup that eventually sees you travelling deep into a remote region for an encounter that will have repercussions not only for lead character Aloy but also the Hunter’s Lodge itself.
