Horizon: Zero Dawn delayed to 2017 in stunning new trailer

Horizon Zero Dawn delayed into 2017

In amongst all the stellar announcements Sony had during their press conference at E3 last year, Horizon: Zero Dawn was the one that stood out the most for me. A brand new open-world IP from the developers who set visual standards with the Killzone franchise, Guerrilla Game wowed attendees with a stunning demo featured red-haired heroine Aloy – and her unique brand of robot animal ass kicking.

Horizon: Zero Dawn takes place in another version of our future that is a little less grey and drab, but still filled to the brim with danger. Humanity has fallen, and in its place robotic recreations of once existing wildlife has taken its place. Tribes roam the lands hunting these creatures for resources, with a clear mix of old and new weaponry. Aloy, one of the most adept in her tribe, is looking for more answers, as the new trailer below teases.

Beyond the cryptic titbits of story dripping from the scenery, Horizon: Zero Dawn looks as visually striking as it did a year ago. Colour is burst at the seams here, but it’s somehow still taking a backseat to the incredible enemy designs Aloy finds herself going toe to toe with. The way each of the robotic creatures moves and sounds sells this idea of an AI controlled ecosystem, and it’s a world that is just inviting you to get lost in it.

Although with that comes the bitter (although expected) disappointment of a delay, if such things still sting you deep down. Horizon is now only making it to market on February 28th of next year (or March 3rd for us locally), which leaves Sony’s end of the year exclusive line-up wafer thin ahead of E3. There’s nothing wrong with Guerrilla Games needing more time though, so hopefully there’s no repeat of what poor Sean Murray had to endure last week.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is coming exclusively to PS4, and we should see a lot more of it very soon.

  1. Aloy came from nowhere? So this is what happens when Skynet and Apple has a baby?

          Am I delusional for thinking Steve Jobs was a serious egomaniac that expoited others to make himself a Messiah ?

            I agree. No you’re not.

            Which one, Ashton or Fassbender ? Wait, What about the other made for TV one that villified Jobs and had a scene where Gates owned him ?

            I didn’t even know there were so many.
            The answer is: None. I will watch none of those. I never liked or respected him.

            The logic behind casting the dude from The 70’s show is bonkers. He looks like Jobs. Lol

      That would be quite the plot line, looking forward to the game just hope it’s not too close to the new Mass effect release.

    After Uncharted 4, my expectations in what constitutes a great experience has gone through the roof. I also found this title incredibly enticing. But Naughty Dog are the game world equivalent to JJ, Spielberg, Ridley and Nolan all mixed into one. Any developer that thinks they have the next big thing better check themselves against the mighty yardstick Naughty Dog have provided.

          We do have sales and recently I enabled game sharing with a friend. I buy one then he buys one. So it’s 50% off on day one

    Two things are possible here, either this game is delayed to accommodate the Neo or Sony is telling us that the game is delayed for improvement on the PS4 and therefore has no intention to release the Neo any time soon.
