Many gamers could not help but show disappointment when they learned earlier this month that the eagerly awaited game No Man’s Sky would be delayed until August, and sadly now another high profile game has seen its launch date pushed back. Because Horizon: Zero Dawn by developer Guerrilla Games was certainly one of the most eagerly awaited games of 2016, but now those anxious to play this sci-fi video game will have to wait until February 2017 to do so.
But still, it is clear that Horizon: Zero dawn is one of the most promising PS4 exclusive seen to date, with its interesting post-apocalyptic story, open-world gameplay, robotic dinosaurs and strong female protagonist. And Guerrilla has released a new trailer titled “Aloy’s Journey”, which sheds new light on Horizon: Zero Dawn’s mysterious female protagonist Aloy.
In this trailer, Aloy proves she’s a tough as nails heroine as she takes on the game’s fearsome robot dinosaurs, but we also get to see her as an infant questioning a village elder about her mother’s mysterious disappearance, in a world in which advanced technology and tribal instincts coexist. Actually, the game looks like Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal at times, but with robot dinosaurs and futuristic technologies thrown in for good measure…
Judging by this trailer, it looks like Horizon: Zero Dawn might offer a great story to give context to the third-person action gameplay, although we’ll still have to wait until 2017 to see whether Horizon: Zero Dawn will turn out to be the great game many are hoping it will be.
Note: Horizon: Zero Dawn will be released on February 28, 2017. Available on PS4.
