Horizon: Zero Dawn's one of those rare Western games that we reckon has a shot at doing extremely well in Japan, and Sony seems to have recognised that. The platform holder prepared a massive stage demo for the title at TGS 2015 this week, which consisted of a fresh playthrough of the E3 2015 sequence. If you thought that the five minute...

Back to the future
Back when Horizon: Zero Dawn was first announced, this author suggested that protagonist Aloy's name may have been inspired by the Eloi in H.G. Wells' legendary novel, The Time Machine. Well, gleeful back slapping aside, it turns out that we were probably right, as Guerrilla Games has revealed that it pitched a project based on...

Forget about games like Crackdown 3 – this right here is the real power of the cloud. As part of a presentation at SIGGRAPH 2015, Dutch developer Guerrilla Games briefly touched upon the volumetric clouds that it'll be including in forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn. And while it all gets really technical and a...

"Guerrilla Games has been very brave"
Horizon: Zero Dawn has paid off in every possible way for Sony. The game won multiple E3 2015 awards – including one from us – and has shot straight to the top of the pile of many peoples' most anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusives list. But it's been a long and arduous ride up until this point, with SCEE...

Meching the difference
PlayStation Heroes is a monthly initiative that sees most of the proceeds made from the selling of exclusive PlayStation 4 themes donated to charity, and August's theme is a real beauty.

We know we weren't the first ones here
Dutch musician Joris de Man may have been missing from Killzone: Shadow Fall, but he's proven that he's still the man by composing Horizon: Zero Dawn's soaring soundtrack. And so affecting has the E3 trailer's short audio snippet proven that people are already taking to YouTube with their own rendition of the...

A new Horizon
Who won E3 2015? If you really think about it, you may say Guerrilla Games. This is a studio that's bordered on the precipice of something really special for a while, but it never could strike the finishing blow with the Killzone franchise. Seeing it announce two brand new properties in Los Angeles last month was incredibly exciting,...

But it's predominantly a single player experience
Horizon: Zero Dawn really struck a chord with consumers and critics at E3 2015 last month, which must have really energised the team at Guerrilla Games. Of course, now that the PlayStation 4 exclusive has been revealed, there are many questions remaining reg

Even if it's endured one of the worst development cycles in gaming history, The Last Guardian still has a smaller budget than Guerrilla Games' new franchise, Horizon: Zero Dawn. That's what Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony's Worldwide Studios, told Eurogamer.net earlier today. After being asked if The Last Guardian was one of the most...

Bring me the Horizon
There hasn't been this much buzz surrounding Guerrilla Games for a while. The first-party firm last truly dropped jaws with its infamous Killzone 2 demo at E3 2005, a clip that turned out to be staged. A decade later, the Dutch developer has learned a lesson or two – it always shows gameplay where possible for a start...

"Is it risky to do a female character?"
It's a sad reality that some gamers are close-minded – after all, we've all seen what's happened to our wonderful hobby over the past year. But while we're not here to preach to any one of you on this site, we will say that we're glad that Sony and Guerrilla Games stuck to its guns with Horizon: Zero...

Right under our noses
Guerrilla Games, you sly dogs! Much like The Last of Us teaser in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, the Dutch developer stuffed a Horizon: Zero Dawn hint in PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall – it's just taken us all this time to notice. One eagle-eyed Twitter user uploaded the embedded video, ensuring to copy...
It's still not entirely clear
Horizon: Zero Dawn, the ambitious new property from Guerrilla Games, dazzled during Sony's big E3 2015 media briefing this week – but we don't actually know a lot about the game. We know that you'll play as Aloy, a young female protagonist from a tribe who's adept at hunting Machines – the robotic creatures who have...

Dutch developer serves up fascinating new PlayStation franchise
If last night's E3 2015 press conference from Sony had been a normal one, we'd probably be all cooing over Horizon: Zero Dawn right now. Sadly for Guerrilla Games, its new intellectual property got overshadowed somewhat by bigger announcements – but take nothing away from the title,...
And it's a PS4 exclusive
We've known that Horizon was in production for about a year now, but actually seeing Guerilla Games' new IP in action has shown us that it very well may be a big hitter for the PlayStation 4. It's clear that Sony has faith in the project, too, as it was the second game to be shown off during its press conference. After...
