Horizon Zero Dawn’s Newest Trailer Discuss The Game’s Past

Horizon Zero Dawn has a lot of mysteries surrounding it’s plot and world. And while the new trailer released for the game doesn’t reveal everything about the game, it does just enough to let us know that the world’s mysteries will play an important part of the game.

The video, which you can check out below, goes over how the game’s many mysteries play into the world, and even in some unexpected places, like the tutorial for example. “We use the child Aloy sequences mostly for tutorializing the mechanics to the player—the very basics,” said game director Mathijs de Jonge. “As soon as you’re the adult Aloy, that’s when a lot of the skills and the bigger machines come into play.”

Exploration is a huge part of the game, so the video discusses the importance of both the player and Aloy discovering this new world together. “So, one of the things that was really important for us is that as Aloy discovers the world, maybe the player discovers the world as well,” said art director Jan-Bart Van Beek.

Horizon Zero Dawn will release on February 28th, exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. The Pro version of the game will have a few enhancements, including running the game at 1080p.
