Horizon Zero Dawn

A third-person action game with RPG elements created by Guerilla Games, the studio known for Killzone series. The game is set in the distant future, where the world is ruled by intelligent animal-like forms that evolved from the machines responsible for the fall of an advanced human civilization centuries ago; the former rulers of the world survived, but their lifestyle was reduced to that of primitive, isolated tribes. The player takes the role of Aloy – a young girl, who seeks to find secrets of the ancients and discover her destiny. The heroine is not defenseless in this dangerous world. When fighting hostile machines she can count on her skills (developed individually) and loads of futuristic weapons, made up of parts of fallen enemies. The game is set in an open world, and the protagonist is free to choose both the order and method in which she undertakes missions. You can either openly confront your enemies or cunningly exploit their weaknesses.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is a PlayStation 4 exclusive from Guerilla Games, the studio mainly known for the Killzone shooter series. This time we get an action game with RPG elements set in a future world, in which modern cities crumbled, human civilization collapsed, and the world has been overrun by mechanical beasts.


The game is set in an open world, long after the mankind’s golden age has passed. After our grand civilization collapsed, those who survived the shift of power started to gather in tribes living in the wild territories of the new world. This, however, does not mean that all of advanced technology has been lost. Quite the opposite in fact - the world was dominated by machines that somehow evolved into intelligent animal life forms. You play as Aloya, a young, adventurous girl, who tries to uncover secrets of the lost civilization, while striving to learn her own destiny.


On her journey, the heroine has to take on various challenges and face numerous hostile machines. Fortunately, she is not a damsel in distress type of woman, but an excellent warrior, perfectly capable of standing her ground even in the toughest of situations. Wielding futuristic weapons made up of parts of fallen machines, Aloya fearlessly faces even the biggest mechanical beasts.

Gameplay-wise the title is a combination of TPP action adventure and a stealth game, supplemented with RPG elements. In combat you have to learn the opponents’ behavior patterns and make use of their weak spots. Of course, you do not have to fight all enemies on your way, and it is sometimes better to hide in the tall grass and wait out the danger.


Horizon: Zero Dawn features excellent visuals. Guerilla Games did a good job digging into PlayStation 4 architecture and employing its hidden potential.
