3. Horizon: Zero Dawn
And in an extended trailer shown at last year’s E3, main character Aloy is seen attacking and taking down one of the mechanical beasts with her bow (which appears to be the game’s main weapon), by hitting weak spots in the creature’s body. And it appears that stealth and strategy will be the key in Horizon: Zero Dawn’s combat, instead of charging with guns blazing, which is certainly a refreshing change. The game will also feature open-world gameplay, and it certainly looks like it can stand up against some of the year’s top upcoming releases like Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal.
