Today I’m thrilled to announce The Frozen Wilds, an expansion of Horizon Zero Dawn set in the icy territories of the north. To pique your curiosity, we’ve prepared a teaser trailer for you.
Expanding the vibrant, post-apocalyptic world of Horizon Zero Dawn and continuing the journey of young machine hunter Aloy, The Frozen Wilds adds a brand new area with its own compelling storyline, adventures and side activities.
Earlier this week we announced PlayStation Days of Play, where we unveiled a beautiful new limited-edition gold PS4 for $249.99 USD, along with discounts on DualShock 4, PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset, and major PS4-exclusive games at retailers across the country.
Today, Days of Play officially kicks off — and PlayStation Store is in on the fun with deals on big games, PlayStation Plus memberships, and much more.
We’re pleased to introduce our Days of Play campaign, a first of its kind global promotion, bringing you some amazing PlayStation deals just as summertime is getting into full swing. Haven’t jumped into the PlayStation 4 community yet? Or maybe you want to add some of the great PS4 games that have recently launched? Now’s the time! Starting June 9, major retailers across U.S. and Canada will offer discounts on hardware, peripherals, and PS4 exclusive games – all the way through June 17. This campaign is a thank you from us to the passionate PlayStation community for your unwavering support – it’s all of you that makes PlayStation the best place to play, and led to the huge success of games like Horizon Zero Dawn.
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.
Since the launch of Horizon Zero Dawn we have seen an enormous amount of fan activity. Not only in the form of fan art but also in the shape of screens captured via Photo Mode. Over at Guerrilla we enjoy scrolling through our Twitter timeline seeing all of the beautiful pictures the fans have been sharing, and we want to give something back.
The sheer beauty of the photos you have been sharing has been a huge compliment for us. We asked Roderick van der Steen, our lead lighting artist and in-house photographer, to select a few of his favorites and add some details on what makes these stand out.
Stop the presses, folks! Ryan Clements actually played a video game. That’s right, the Blogcast is back and we’re talking Horizon Zero Dawn — a gorgeous experience that Clements finally started.
Across the diverse set of studios, offices, and teams that make up PlayStation, there’s one trait we all share: we love games. And since Horizon Zero Dawn launched on PS4 in late February, many of us have fallen hopelessly head over heels.
We’ve become enamored with Aloy, staggered by the scope of the world, and awed by the stunning visuals Guerrilla Games has crafted. Perhaps none so more than Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann.
On this week’s Blogcast, Sid and I recount our favorite stories to come out of GDC ’17. We also ponder the finer points of the “clicker” genre, look forward to the sleeper hit-to-be Disc Jam, and share stories of our adventures in Guerrilla’s Horizon Zero Dawn. Finally, a thought-provoking listener letter kicks off a discussion about overhyping games and expectation management. Enjoy the show!
