"The environment looks real as fuck. I can definitely say that I'd cop it just because of how open the world is... not gonna lie."
Guerilla Games is only 5 days away from releasing the newly anticipated open world adventure "Horizon Zero Dawn" which takes place in a post-apocalyptic— earth-like planet that inhabits humanoids of tribal descent and foul technologically engineered beasts who go by the corrupters.
Basically this game will take from the perspective of a young villager named Aloy whom was outcasted from her tribe for not having a mother at birth. (Crazy shit.) Because of this— she is forced to fend for herself and become resourceful of the things around her. Doing this for years she develops strengths that set her apart from the other humanoids on the planet.
In the E3 Game play Trailer she is seen journeying grassy plains investigating the area until screams are heard coming from the nearby bridge. In this instance you get a quick glimpse of the battle system which is very engaging and fast! The Corrupters are ancient machines (similar to forbidden Machina in Final Fantasy X) that were originally used by "The Old Ones" or ancient ancestors lol. In the video Aloy is then approached by the frantic man who was just ambushed by the corrupter. What I love about this already is that you can choose her responses which gives different outcomes in situations. After you pick a witty response he flees to the village as you continue on to investigate the strange happenings. That's pretty much it in terms of what they show except for a pretty intense battle scene, but this game also gives the players the adventure and perspective of a young lady with gifted powers and the world on her shoulders. Pretty Neat.
Horizon also gives that feel of a primitive yet technologically advanced utopia (or Post-Apocolyptic world like I mentioned at the beginning of the article.) that has an interesting plot to follow. I'm excited to see what this game has to offer! Last time I checked it IS a PS4 exclusive, so Sony Users may have another one one Microsoft. lol who knows... Horizon Zero Dawn out Feb. 28th!
