Horizon Zero Dawn Voice Actress Says a Sequel is Coming

Last year, there were rumors regarding a possible sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn. Guerrilla Games’ 2017 hit has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, so capitalizing on that success with another game seems like a no-brainer, but so far there’s been no official announcement. However, someone who worked on the game claims a sequel is in development.

Janina Gavankar, the voice actress for Horizon Zero Dawn‘s Taitai, recently attended Star Wars Celebration while cosplaying as Iden Versio. During the festivities she ran into a fellow cosplayer who struck up a conversation about Horizon Zero Dawn. Gavankar was recorded saying “It’s incredible, wait ’til you see the sequel. You’re gonna die – I know some secrets! – you’re gonna die.”

Obviously at this point, the game’s existence is not confirmed by Guerrilla Games, but it seems likely to be the real deal. Will the game release in the twilight years of PlayStation 4, or will we see it early next generation?

Horizon Zero Dawn Tops 10 Million Sales

Yesterday marked the second anniversary of Guerrilla Games releasing Horizon Zero Dawn into the world. The beautiful open world game launched to strong reviews and even stronger sales, and it continued to be a success on PlayStation 4 long after its debut. Despite being exclusive to one platform, Horizon Zero Dawn has gone on to reach a major sales milestone that places it in an upper echelon of popular games.

Hermen Hulst, Managing Director at Guerrilla Games, recently uploaded a PlayStation Blog post discussing the success and development of the game. According to Hulst, Horizon Zero Dawn has sold “well over” 10 million copies. In celebration of this number (and the two year anniversary), Hulst went on to highlight some lesser-known details about the game’s development.

Horizon Zero Dawn is Launching Two Days Early in the UK

Horizon Zero Dawn was originally planned to launch this year, but the PlayStation 4 exclusive was pushed back to 2017. The extra wait allows developer Guerrilla Games to spend more time ensuring it’s a polished experience, especially on the enhanced PlayStation 4 Pro. If you live in the UK, that wait has just been shortened. While it was previously slated for a March 3rd release, PlayStation UK has just announced that Horizon Zero Dawn will now launch on March 1st. The US release remains unchanged from the previously announced date of February 28th.

Death Stranding is Built on Horizon Zero Dawn’s “Decima” Engine

Hideo Kojima spent years crafting the FOX Engine at Konami, but after his nasty divorce from the company, he lost the rights to use it. After striking out on his own, Kojima toured the world, visiting prominent game studios to decide what sort of graphics engine he wanted to use for his next game. As we’ve seen from the recent Death Stranding trailer, the results are impressive.

Speaking during a PlayStation Experience 2016 panel, Kojima revealed what the engine is, and what it means for the future of Kojima Productions. Death Stranding is running on the game engine “Decima,” which is the same engine that powers Horizon Zero Dawn. Upon meeting with Kojima, Guerrilla Games “gifted” him the source code, leading to a collaboration between the two studios.

In addition to beautiful graphics, Decima involves AI, physics, logics, and world-creation tools. Kojima has tweaked the existing engine (particularly in regards to lighting) to create a more photorealistic look than the fantastical world of Horizon Zero Dawn, and his studio is now working hand-in-hand with Guerrilla Games to continue improving the engine going forward. To further this relationship, Kojima is establishing a small satellite studio of Kojima Productions focused on technology within Guerrilla Games in Amsterdam.

Sony Debuted New Footage of Climbing Dinosaurs in Horizon Zero Dawn Running on PS4 Pro

To accompany the company’s announcement of PS4 Pro, Sony debuted new footage of Guerilla’s upcoming action-adventure title Horizon Zero Dawn. Though the new showcase isn’t more than a minute or two, it showcases the graphical fidelity of PS4 Pro with stunning views and trees wavering in the wind. But, more importantly, it is now clear that you can climb dinosaurs in Horizon Zero Dawn. New hardware is nice and all, but it doesn’t match up to the fact that you can climb dinosaurs like small mountains. We’ll grab the footage as soon as it’s available (update: it’s now available above!).

Horizon Zero Dawn Lets You Hunt Animals for Food, Crafting, and Trading with Other Villages

It’s always a treat when game creators interact directly with fans, and recently Mathijs de Jonge, the director of PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn, answered some fan’s questions about the game’s story on Twitter. De Jonge elaborated on the mechanical animals seen in the game, saying that all the machines in game are dangerous, and thus humanity has been forced to live in small settlements in fear of the mechanical beasts. When asked about the live animals seen in the game, De Jonge stated that these animals can also be hunted for food, crafting, and trading with other villages.

In addition to this new information, two new, previously unseen screenshots have been released. Check them out below!

Horizon Zero Dawn’s New Story Trailer Confirms a Delay to 2017

One of the most exciting upcoming PlayStation 4 games is Horizon Zero Dawn. The latest title from Killzone developer Guerrilla Games features enormous robotic dinosaurs roaming through beautiful environments in a post-apocalyptic world. The game was originally slated to launch sometime in 2016, but a reliable source indicated that it had been delayed to 2017 back in April.

Sony has just released a new trailer for the game, focusing on protagonist Aloy’s mysterious background and desire to explore the world and discover the truth about the fall of humanity. As the trailer comes to a close, a release date of February 28th, 2017 flashes across the screen, confirming the delay. The original report indicated that the delay is happening so that
Horizon Zero Dawn can be compatible with the rumored PlayStation 4K/PlayStation Neo, but of course Sony hasn’t commented on that at this time. You can check it out by clicking above!

Rumor: Horizon Zero Dawn Will be Delayed to 2017 and It’s 4K Compatible

One of the most promising upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusives is Horizon Zero Dawn from Killzone developer Guerrilla Games. The breathtakingly beautiful game is set in a world with a bizarre mix of futuristic tech and primal societies. The vast empires of humanity have long since collapsed, and robotic dinosaurs roam the world. It’s been quite awhile since we’ve received any substantial updates on the game, and its release window is a wide-open “2016.”

According to an industry insider who goes by shinobi602 on Twitter and NeoGAF, however, the upcoming game has been delayed to early 2017, and it will be able to take advantage of the
4K-compatible PlayStation Neo that is reported to be in development. Although this should be considered a rumor, shinobi602 holds some weight when it comes to leaks, and especially involving this particular game, as he leaked the existence of its robot dinosaurs and its red-headed female protagonist over a year before it was unveiled at E3 2015.

After tweeting out the above revelation, shinobi602 found himself flooded with complaints from people assuming that the game would run poorly on regular PlayStation 4 models. In response, he clarified his initial statement.

“Yikes, I suppose I’ll chime in since that was taken way farther than I thought. Honestly it was just a general comment, obviously the whole point of the 4k is better looking games, that’s all I meant. It was never meant as a “It’ll run like ass on the PS4” chide. This is Guerrilla we’re talking about. Vast majority of this game’s development has been on the PS4. They’ve always done well in the performance department. I don’t think there’s a reason to fear for anything.

“Just to clarify.”
— shinobi602

So far there hasn’t been any official announcement of a delay from Sony or Guerrilla Games, but then again they still haven’t officially acknowledged that PlayStation Neo exists. It’s very possible that we won’t hear anything concrete until E3 in June.

Horizon Zero Dawn’s Gameplay is “In-Between Assassin’s Creed and The Elder Scrolls”

Horizon Zero Dawn, the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive from Killzone developer Guerrilla Games looks fantastic, but we’ve only been given a small taste of the experience. Set in a beautifully crafted post-apocalyptic world where humans have reverted to a tribal culture and giant robots roam the plains, Horizon Zero Dawn combines action and RPG elements in a vast open world. Asked to describe the balance of these elements, managing director Hermen Hulst said that it falls somewhere between Assassin’s Creed and The Elder Scrolls. Here are his thoughts on the matter:

“I guess you’re wondering where we are on that spectrum of, on the one side more action-orientated games like Assassin’s Creed, and on the other hand you have your Elder Scrolls and these kinds of series. I think we’re in-between. We have elements in both directions, and that probably puts us somewhere in between.”

Horizon Zero Dawn Was in Development Even Before Killzone Shadow Fall

Guerrilla Games exclusively released games in the
Killzone franchise for nearly a decade, spanning all the way from the original Killzone in 2004 to Killzone Shadow Fall in 2013. However, their next project, E3 sensation Horizon Zero Dawn, is something entirely different. It may look like the team at Guerrilla decided they needed to start with something fresh after Shadow Fall, but that’s not the case. According to studio co-founder Hermen Hulst, Horizon Zero Dawn has had a lengthy development period that actually started before work began on Killzone Shadow Fall.

“It’s been a huge, huge benefit for the studio when starting… Although, well… we actually commenced on the Horizon Zero Dawn project before we commenced on Killzone Shadow Fall. So I was going to say it’s been a huge benefit that we started with a mature engine, but the mature engine came into existence whilst the development of Horizon was ongoing! But nevertheless, because we were working on Shadow Fall, of course, to obviously have an engine ready at launch of PlayStation 4 was a boon to us.”
— Hermen Hulst

Horizon Zero Dawn kicked off development before Killzone Shadow Fall, and by the time it launches it will have had an extra three years in development. This looks to be the biggest project yet from Guerrilla Games, and what we’ve seen so far is pretty impressive!

Horizon Zero Dawn’s Female Protagonist Was Inspired By Terminator, Alien, and Game of Thrones

At E3 this year, Guerrilla Games unveiled a new IP that is coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 next year called Horizon: Zero Dawn; since then, many have praised the game for featuring what should be a strong female protagonist who, according to the game’s director, is based on some of pop culture’s strongest female characters. In an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, game director Mathijs de Jonge explained that the Guerrilla team drew inspiration from Terminator‘s Sarah Connor, Alien‘s Ripley, and Game of Thrones‘ Ygritte when designing the game’s protagonist.

Here’s Jonge’s full statement:

“We felt we had quite an original composition and combination of elements with the robots and the nature, so we also felt like it needed an original and strong character to go with that. One of the directions we were very interested in was a character like Sarah Connor in Terminator, Ripley in Alien or, more recently, Ygritte from Game Of Thrones; very strong female characters. That’s where we started.” — Mathijs de Jonge
