Featured above, you can view a brand new trailer for the game.

“It wasn’t an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it,” Guerrilla Games managing director Hermen Hulst said in a PlayStation Blog post. “However, we also want to ensure that Horizon: Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn.

    I think we all knew it wasn’t releasing this year. I’d love for them to go into more depth about what the gameplay will be like at E3 , though.

    Bloodborne Station 4.

    Jokes aside, fingers crossed they don’t delay The Last Guardian and Gravity Rush 2 too. I mean, what the hell have they even released for the thing this year? Uncharted 4? I suppose a game is better than none, but still waiting for my massive flood of exclusive JRPGs Japan.

    Oh, and so this comment is relevant to this article’s game as well, all I can say is, devs are cool, games look cool, I always wanted Monster Hunter but with robot dinossaurs and this is definitely not going to be MonHun-esque but it will scratch the itch nonetheless. Provided it doesn’t suck of course.

    “Gameplay quality our games are known for…”

    If this was delayed do you think The Last Guardian stands a chance?
    Might release late December maybe.

    We probably won’t get Gravity Rush 2 in the west the year.

    Hopefully they’ll include the option to mute her.

    C’mon, no gameplay whatsoever? It’s hard to be interested in this game when all we have is cutscenes and a scripted sequence.

    Right? I love how so many retards were able to declare this game the second coming of christ immediately after the 2 full minutes of gameplay we saw at last year’s E3.

    These people have a short memory it seems.Even the biggest idiot nowadays knows how much games at E3 get shown under their best light only to afterwards get a massive downgrade.

    You know I’m not really excited for this game not sure why.

    Yeah, that was pretty predictable. We haven’t heard anything about the game for a while. I kind of hope The Last Guardian will make it this year.

    It had already dropped off my radar, anyway. Now it’ll stay off.

    “You help me or get out of my way”
    Is she even an aggressive character?
    It’s so easy to write female characters nowadays, you just make them have no respect for men when they get a line, because she is a victim and then you… no that’s it. Now she is free to kill as many men as she likes.

    In other words, our game is too ambitious for Laptopstation 4 so we will wait for PS4k.
