Horizon: Zero Dawn
Guerilla Games made a name for itself on the astoundingly pretty but pedestrian Killzone franchise, and hasn’t tried anything else since.
Horizon: Zero Dawn makes for a very sharp change of pace then by maintaining the company’s reputation for stellar graphics, but taking a new approach to gameplay.
At E3, the third-person action RPG set itself apart from the herd with a dense story trailer and lengthy gameplay demo, ensuring Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of 2016’s releases worth keeping a close eye on. It’s a little bit Tomb Raider, a little bit Enslaved, and exactly the sort of beautiful oddity people will remember in the months to come.
