Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Not sure if that's my type of game, but it sure looks pretty.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

It kind of feels like Enslaved: Odyssey to the West with the Mechs and rundown cities.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Looks great. Might have to add it to my pre-orders.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

I think it's realistic to assume that it will. Unlike a few other titles that looks about how I expect games this gen to look. Warts and all.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Glad you posted this...I came close but thought about putting it in the PS4 section.

Game looks great and already the "Lara Croft 2.0" similarities have come out. Still a lot unknown about the game itself...story, objectives, co-op, different characters, tribes, MP, etc.....I thought Killzone: Shadow Fall was one of the best looking games I played. The lighting and surface details were second to none. I hope to hear more about this in the future.

FYI from GAF:

One thing I can confirm for you is that every single shot in the demo video was taken from in-game, and those locations are discoverable over the course of your journey.

I'll let you get back to the regularly scheduled speculation
I think this might be game of show for me.

I mean, I'm plenty stoked for know commodities like Uncharted and Batman, but post apocalyptic prehistoric robot dinosaur hunting...that looks and plays like that? I can't even.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

You could even, by playing a great game called Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.

This, of course, looks a lot better (graphically) and more open.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Yeah the comparisons to Enslaved are more than valid, but I welcome more of that kind of universe.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

I loved Enslaved.

It's on the PS Live Stream right now. Devs described it as an "open world action RPG", which implies it's different from Enslaved despite thematic similiarities.

Edit: Crafting and quests. Character in video is story protagonist.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

They really put a lot of thought into this.



Officially my game of show. I'm certainly happy for those who are excited about the next installments of the same old franchises, and I'll partake in a few myself, but this looks so fresh.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

They mention in that video that they've been working on it for 5 years.
I've added this to my pre-orders (*grumble grumble* Canadian pricing...).

I can't wait to play it.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

I wish they'd just call this Horizon. Adding Zero Dawn in there makes it sound like some kind of Japanese helicopter sim.

It's mandatory for titles to have "Dawn" or "Rise" or "Age" somewhere in the title.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Been reading several forums who had topics like "Your Game of Show at E3" and a lot had Horizon right up there...even those who don't own a PS4 said it was impressive. I think the game turned a lot of heads and made an impression....now for the details....

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Lets hope it is better than the Killzone games...not that I hate them, they are solid games. Still, they have never developed a top tier game before. Graphically they have always impressed...but lets be honest this is not From Software, Bethesda or Bioware we are talking about here.

The game does look fantastic though...so the foundation is there at least.

The game is beautiful.

They've apparently been poaching talent from CDPR to bolster their expertise in some of those areas.

Was never a Killzone fan either.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Well...since I came over to the PS4 from 360 I never got a chance to play the Killzones. Uncharted, Infamous games....I got Killzone :Shadow Fall in a bundle when I ordered the PS4. Frankly I liked it and soe of the Lighting and Surface Details in the game still to this day looked about the best I've seen. Here is the tech Demo behind Killzone: Shadow Fall and even after 2yrs it still looks impressive.......so just imagine what Horizon might look like.....

I agree. Horizon sounds cool. HZD does not.

And if that's all we have to complain about, they're sitting in a pretty good spot.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

I think they should change the name to Horizon Island: Storm Zero 2.
