Launch Trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games have shared the launch trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off a mix of in-game cinematics, story segments, and of course – lots of the game’s mechanical baddies.

Sony provided a brief synopsis for the game:

“In a world where Machines dominate the earth and mankind lives on in primitive tribal societies, one woman sets out to find her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past. As Aloy, you must brave the Machine-infested wilderness and unearth secrets that lie buried deep within the earth. Will you embrace your calling… or pass into oblivion unsung?”

Horizon: Zero Dawn is launching for PlayStation 4 on February 28th. Expect our review for the game forthcoming.

    With a voice and acting ability like that Brom deserves to die.

    Thought Horizon is not a game I will be picking up, I’m glad that the userbase on PS4 is diverse enough to cater to all fanbases and genres. I hope it does well.

    Looks meh…
    Its a game about hunting robot fuckin’ dinnosaurs and it looks mediocre. A normal person cannot do that, you need a specialist to suck the fun out of such a stupidly cool premise.

    wtf is with these facial animation? Bioware needs to hire whoever is responsible immediately.

    The dialogue, and how the protagonist acts in this scene is everything i need to know about not purchasing this game.

    The more we see, the less hype there is it seems.

    This looks like one of those games that mainstream critics will like but Gamers will hate. And not just for the SJW overtones.

    Shills are legitimately calling this great voice acting. Then again during a foggy environment they’re saying the draw distance is massive. Love how many of them are throwing about their reputation on this game.

    You need to find Progressives. They had to rewrite the entire story, redo god knows how much dialog because the first trailer showed off the main character as a complete bitch and can be summed up with men are cowardly and evil the game.

    Spoiler:With Diversity we can thrive.

    Overtones nothing, it was flat out SJW before they redid the whole thing.

    This progressive game will be violently crushed by a game using the “sexist” trope of the damsel in distress

    I don’t think even removing all that would have saved this thing. None of the characters or settings look even a little bit unique, they all look like that bland concept art stuff 3d artists use to practice. The graphics arent even pretty, they’re just detailed.

    I’ve read the ending spoilers and if they are true, the ending is pretty meh.

    I hope it’s not too full of SJW retoric considering i just watched the BRom’s scene i kinda feel the characters are gonna be some pussy assed cowards in a world that basically screams ”Survival of the fittest”

    It was basically a more in your face “fuck men” “diversity will save us all” then Ghostbusters. It only saved it in the sense that now instead of getting half a million sales they might get 2 million, but yeah the game looks horrible in every other regard.

    This is what happens when you let progressives into your company.

    do you have links where I can read the SJW-ness of this game in detail ?

    You need to look for the first story trailer they put out. Leaked footage has the diversity stuff, but toned down.

    Please tell me this is some alpha version shit that they ultimately deleted from the game.
    This isn’t OK.
