The Guerilla Games elevator pitch for Horizon Zero Dawn was probably pretty easy:
"So, we're done with this Killzone thing, and you know, FPS in general... what should we do next?"
"I dunno, how about open-world robot dinosaurs in a post-apocalyptic setting?"
The team has released a new character-based story trailer highlighting some of the concepts and history surrounding the game's main character, Aloy.
Earth is ours no more.
The masters of the new wilderness are teeming herds of fearsome Machines.
Play as Aloy, shunned by her tribe since birth, as she harnesses her agility, cunning, and deadly aim to hunt these terrifying mechanized creatures.
Face insurmountable odds to turn predators to prey. Fuse primitive gear with advanced tech to create unique weapons and explore dangerous landscapes.
Alone against warring tribes, unforgiving wilds, and Machines of all shapes and sizes, can you survive long enough to discover your destiny among the deepest secrets of the ancient past?
Sony Australia today also confirmed the game will release on our shores on March 1, 2017 exclusively for PS4.
