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?
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.

One of the biggest new IPs this year is undoubtedly Horizon Zero Dawn by Guerilla Games. It should come as no surprise then, that Guerilla wants to capitalize on its success by creating more content in the Horizon universe. Officially unveiled at tonight’s PlayStation E3 press conference, The Frozen Wilds DLC expansion will be coming later this year.
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.
During Sony’s PlayStation Experience 2016 Showcase we got a new look at a wide variety of upcoming games, including the next big thing from Guerrilla Games. Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a post-apocalyptic future where society has long since collapsed and humans have reverted to tribal life, and it features beautiful environments and a variety of robotic dinosaur foes. The highly-anticipated adventure launches exclusively on PlayStation 4 on February 28th, but you can check out another look at its beautiful world and mysterious story by clicking above!

A new trailer debuted at Tokyo Game Show, giving us a glimpse at the world before society collapsed and showcasing the game’s beautiful visuals. You can check it out by clicking above!
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!).
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!
Sony’s E3 2016 press conference is officially over, and it definitely did not disappoint! Sony announced that they are developing a new God of War title, a Spider-Man game, a remastered collection of the first three Crash Bandicoot games, and a whole lot more. In addition to a plethora of new announcements, they also talked about several previously-announced titles, including Horizon Zero Dawn and The Last Guardian. We also got plenty of details on PlayStation VR, including a launch date, price, and several new games. To get caught up on all of this news and more, click below:
And with that, our second day of E3 coverage here at Gamnesia has come to a close; however, we’ve still got loads of content coming your way over the next few days. Tomorrow, we’ll be here to cover all of the news from Nintendo’s Treehouse Live stream! The E3 show floor also opens tomorrow, which means there will be plenty of new details on the games announced at E3 that you won’t want to miss!
If you want to check out Sony’s conference in its entirety, you can watch it below.
During Sony’s E3 press conference, new gameplay for Horizon Zero Dawn was shown off, revealing new features such as a crafting system, new ammo types, and dialogue options. It was also shown that you can ride on top of animals to travel more easily.
During the demonstration, the player rode up to a village where an action-packed fight against a giant Corruptor ensued. At one point, the player even started shooting their arrows from the back of the beast that they were riding. We then see more of the fast-paced combat that was shown off last year as they finish off the Corruptor.

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.

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.
During Sony’s E3 press conference back in June, Guerrilla Games announced a beautiful open-world game called Horizon Zero Dawn. After nearly a decade of working exclusively on the Killzone franchise, the Sony-owned studio’s upcoming game features a beautiful new art style and completely different gameplay than what we’ve seen from them before.
Zero Dawn‘s story is set in a future where civilization has collapsed and humans have devolved into tribal societies. Vegetation has once again overtaken the earth, and robot dinosaurs roam freely. Sony has taken the original story trailer from E3 and re-released it alongside a storyboard for the trailer, showing off the concept art that inspired the game’s breathtaking visuals.

Guerrilla Games revealed their newest title, Horizon Zero Dawn, at E3 this year, and the game has returned for Sony’s Paris Games Week conference. Set in a gorgeous open world filled with robotically-enhanced beasts, Horizon will be coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 next year. Thanks to the Sony conference, we now have a new gameplay demo of the title, giving us another look at protagonist Aloy, her weapons and abilities, and the creatures she’ll be hunting or defending herself against. Check it out in the video above!
One of the most exciting game reveals at this year’s E3 was Horizon Zero Dawn. Guerrilla Games’ upcoming adventure is set in a future where civilization has collapsed into a tribal state and robot dinosaurs roam a beautiful and flourishing world. A live gameplay demonstration (similar to a behind-closed-doors demonstration at E3) was held at Tokyo Game Show, with developer commentary highlighting the game’s unique features.

Guerrilla Games has been pumping out entries in the Killzone franchise for the past decade, but their next game is something entirely different. Set to launch next year, Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a post-apocalyptic open world where humans have reverted to a tribal culture and robots roam free like animals. Guerrilla Games has released a new time-lapse video that shows off some of the beautiful scenery and skyline of the game through different times of day and night. Click above to check it out!
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.” — Hermen Hulst
What do you think of the gameplay we’ve seen from Horizon Zero Dawn so far? What gameplay mechanics would you like to see used in the game? Sound off in the comments!
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!
