Horizon: Zero Dawn is supposed to be one of the biggest upcoming PlayStation exclusives. When it was announced back at E3 last year, everyone was taken aback at its freshness and the sheer audacity, and all the footage and information that has been released since then has only served to make everyone following the game even more excited.
While we do not have an exact release date for the game, we know that it is supposed to hit the PS4 sometime this year. So as the anticipation builds and we keenly await more information, let’s take a look at everything we’ve been told about the game so far and highlight what look like some of its best features.

It is a fully open world action-RPG
You do not usually associate Horizon developer Guerrilla Games with role playing games, given the fact that their most popular achievements have all come through the first person shooter series Killzone. Horizon: Zero Dawn, though, is going to be their first attempt at a full fledged action-RPG title- or any non-shooter title, for that matter. Outside of the Killzone series, they have only ever worked on one game (Shellshock: Nam ’67 back in 2004, which was also a shooter), so it’s nice to see them trying new and wildly ambitious things.
