You know that training montage right near the start of Horizon: Zero Dawn? It's a quick and effective way to show the growth of main character Aloy. She goes from being an energetic kid to a capable hunter in the space of just a few minutes, but you know what's even more impressive? The fact that Survivor's 'Eye of the Tiger' syncs up...
Tuesday5th Nov 2019
Have you seen Death Stranding? It’s arguably the best looking game on the PlayStation 4, and it shows how far the Decima Engine has come since the release of Horizon: Zero Dawn a couple of years ago. Of course, a sequel to Aloy’s inaugural outing is almost certainly in the offing for the PlayStation 5, and you should expect it to look...

Wild rumour: London Studio is following up its success on PlayStation VR exclusive Blood & Truth with a virtual reality adaptation of Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Guerrilla's sequel primed to be the face of PS5
We're in an exciting time for PlayStation. While Sony itself is behaving rather reclusively about its next-gen machine, details about PS5 are starting to emerge. Wired recently revealed a few morsels of information, detailing some of the new bells and whistles that will take

Horizon: Zero Dawn 2?
Guerrilla Games, the Dutch developer that brought us Horizon: Zero Dawn and the Killzone series, is hard at work behind the scenes and has been for a number of years. One of Sony's key first-party studios, Guerrilla is presumably prepping a sequel to the aforementioned open world adventure, and so news of the company's latest...

She even gets a bowgun
There's already a PlayStation 4 exclusive Aloy skin in Monster Hunter World, but it looks like the fiery-haired warrior is returning for another round when Monster Hunter World: Iceborne hits in September. Capcom's announced that a second Aloy armour set and weapon will be up for grabs in the expansion, and it seems like a...

"I know some secrets"
It looks like Guerrilla Games is working on a multiplayer title, but the colossal Dutch studio is big enough to support multiple projects now, and we suspect few of you will be surprised to learn that it’s beavering away on a follow-up to the wildly successful Horizon: Zero Dawn. Speaking at a Star Wars convention, actress...

A storm is coming
One day, someone will write a textbook about how to successfully launch a new intellectual property, and Horizon: Zero Dawn will be the primary case study. From the minute this game was announced and Aloy was introduced to the world, the enthusiasm was off-the-charts – and developer Guerrilla Games met the hype head-on,...

Total Eclipse of the heart
Horizon: Zero Dawn is fast approaching its second anniversary, and to commemorate the occasion, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is adding a bunch of new content based on Guerrilla Games’ iconic open world game. Starting from 5th March through 5th April, you’ll be able to unlock the following content in Bluehole’s...

Strength in numbers
The artificial intelligence found in Horizon: Zero Dawn's robo-dinosaurs is undeniably great, but this little tidbit caught our attention. A new report on Gamasutra puts the spotlight on Guerrilla's AI tech, focusing on how the machines act alone or in a group, and it seems that lone robots will seek out herds and ask to join...

Three days to go
A little while ago we reported on the official board game version of Horizon: Zero Dawn, but details were thin on the ground. Jumping onto its Kickstarter page now reveals a whole host of information regarding the tabletop adaptation of Guerrilla's latest and greatest. It's also comfortably met its goal three times over, but if you...

Spidey and friends
Phwoar, right click save image! To celebrate the release of Marvel's Spider-Man, two of Sony's first party studios have crafted some brilliant artwork. The one above is from Horizon: Zero Dawn developer Guerrilla Games, and features Aloy alongside Kratos, Atreus, and Spidey himself. Super cool. God of War developer...

Let 'em dream
Port house Panic Button is making a name for itself on the Nintendo Switch by converting “console” games like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Warframe to the handheld device. And in an interview with Comicbook.com, the studio admitted that there’s one particular title it’d love to have a crack at: Guerrilla Games’...

Roll the dice
Horizon: Zero Dawn received more merchandise than a top-flight football team prior to its release, so you can bet your bottom dollar that now it’s a bonafide megahit, Sony’s doubling down on all sorts of token tat. To be fair, this new board game from Steamforged Games – created in collaboration with Guerrilla Games –...

Speculation seems far-fetched
It was inevitable, wasn’t it? Sony telegraphed exactly what fans can expect from its E3 2018 press conference this year, but here we are dismissing rumours regarding Bloodborne 2 and a Horizon: Zero Dawn sequel. You may have seen this headline doing the rounds overnight; it all seems to stem from a

Congratulates Sony Santa Monica
At this point we all know that Sony's first party studios have great relationships with one another, sharing tech and support whenever they can. In particular, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Killzone developer Guerrilla Games is always quick to react to a new game's launch, and the Dutch studio's done it again with the...

Horizon: Zero Dawn is a year old, and in addition to some truly sublime sales figures, Guerrilla Games is celebrating with some free goodies for fans. Available tomorrow from the PlayStation Store, the Dutch developer has prepared a Dynamic Theme for the PlayStation 4, featuring some of the best Photo Mode snaps shared by the community...
Guerrilla Games' RPG blows up big time
Wow! We already knew Guerrilla Games’ sci-fi role-playing release Horizon: Zero Dawn was a big success, but not to this extent. Sony has announced on the title’s one year anniversary that it’s sold 7.6 million units since its launch in 2017, making it the most successful “new first-party franchise” on...
Saturday30th Dec 2017
It still seems crazy to think that the studio responsible for the Killzone series, a PlayStation mainstay for well over a decade, would make such a creative leap. From a dingy first-person shooter series of fluctuating quality to a vast, vibrant open world RPG, rarely do we see studios of Guerrilla’s size and reputation stray...

That was unexpected
Here’s a trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn’s Complete Edition, which is out this week and includes the recently released Frozen Wilds expansion pack. And oh look, here’s Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima telling us it’s “truly impressive” in Japanese. And here’s Siobhan Reddy from Media Molecule dropping swears that...

The Game Awards has just announced its list of nominees for the upcoming show on 7th December, and Horizon: Zero Dawn has come out on top with five nominations.

Horizon: Zero Dawn’s first (and last?) expansion pack The Frozen Wilds launches next week, and Guerrilla Games has released the Trophy list ahead of the DLC’s arrival. There are actually a whopping 21 new trinkets to collect here, and they’re split into two sets: Quests and Feats. Essentially, your objective is to complete everything in...

Will take about 15 hours to beat
Horizon: Zero Dawn’s facial animations are lightyears ahead of what you tend to see in the role-playing genre’s best, but they were still the low-point in an otherwise immensely impressive experience. It’s exciting to learn, then, that expansion pack The Frozen Wilds will feature better mo-cap and more dynamic...

Horizon: Zero Dawn’s anticipated expansion The Frozen Wilds releases in little over a week, and here’s another brief look at some gameplay footage from the add-on.

Brrrr, it’s getting chilly in here. PlayStation Japan has prematurely released a new trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn’s first major add-on pack, The Frozen Wilds. The clip doesn’t show any real action, instead focusing on the icy locales that Aloy’s post-release adventure will focus on. With the DLC due out in less than a month,...

Horizon: Zero Dawn hasn’t really been out long enough to win any awards yet, but it looks like that won’t stop Sony from shipping a Game of the Year edition of the popular role-playing release prior to the holidays. The expected news comes courtesy of an errant Play-Asia listing, which has since been promptly pulled. Probably...

Sammy's gabbing on about girl power
I don’t care whether your game stars a lady or a Lombax: I just love good characters. It just so happens that two of my favourite characters in 2017 have been females – and they’ve both been at the beating heart of two of the PlayStation 4’s biggest exclusives. I’m, of course, referring to Aloy from...
