With Sony revealing that Horizon Zero Dawn has moved over 3.4 MILLION copies since launch, it was only time before Guerrilla Games would release some new updated player stats and they did so today.
That's freaking awesome !
@ croota Well it is backen up by 3.4 million sold copies and +60 million sold PS4's.
@Crotaaa, You do not understand such stats given as an "addition to", rather than an "in lieu of".
Did you miss the over 3.4m copies part? That's the difference between sony and Microsoft.
Game of the Year so far
I'm glad the investment in new IP paid off. This is an important statement to the industry. When this game makes it to a bundle the sales should really explode.
I can definitely see it being their bundle game this Fall.
Waiting on a GOTY edition myself.
When I was visiting my girlfriend in the Netherlands, they actually had a bundle of this with an OG PS4. I'm guessing since Guerilla is based in the Netherlands :3
We got the Horizon Bundle for a while now in South Africa. Got me the Pro bundled With Horizon + extra controller for the standard Pro price. This game is the reason i got a Pro and 4k TV. And it was for every penny. https://www.takealot.com/so...
Corrupted Sawtooth are deadly, but the Rockbreakers are the real pain. I took me over 10 retrys to hunt a pair of them
A-freagin'-men!!! That pair ticked me off SO BAD!!!
All i did was cross a near by river.. lol they couldn't get me.
I remember stumbling into my first Rockbreaker, it was a real "Oh Sh!t!!" Moment I couldn't even tell what it was, I had to run away and scout the situation because I couldn't even tell what was trying to kill me. I went in fighting hard, but I was ahead of myself. I was way under leveled and it crushed me. Lol I came back later and tore it up though, and I know which two you're talking about too. That was an epic fight, some Snapjaws even came in and added a badass distraction. I love this game for moments like that. Can't wait for that DLC to drop!!
Those, the Stormbird and the Stalker was the hardest ones for me.
My first run in with a Stormbird was so frantic! The first time I stumbled into a Rockbreaker was right out in the open. I pretty much just ran screaming through the first desert part with the Glint Hawks and the Tramplers because I wanted to see what was on the other side. I ended up running right into the Rockbreaker. I started taking it really slow after that. Lol
Yeah I was underleveled too. I just accepted a side mission outside of a a dig site near meridian. and I died a few times. I cheated as I found an unbreakable shack and I took cover in it and bombed the shit out of the rockbreaker with the slingshot. lol. It still took a while. Never wanted to see that thing again. pain in the ass. @Solid. Killed my first Stalker in one try, it went down pretty rapidly and I did so just after my first first longleg. I died a few times on that longleg, dunno why that was so hard. lol. I hate the little flying robots so much. they are often flocked together like 5 of them and they are hard to get a lock on and they piss on you with freeze attacks all around you and they love to hover straight above you so you cant aim at them and go rapidly back and forth above you. flying turds. they dont take that much damage but they are the most annoying ones for sure when there are many of them.
I don't think I even fought a regular one. I remember seeing it but I probably noped the fuck out. The Sawtooth I found a way to exploit one so down he went.
You find a town with a quarry and if you accept the quest from the guy there and go in, there's a regular one. I haven't gotten to a corrupted one but if the fight with a regular one was any indication, it'll be a pain. Just the regular one was a pain to fight. Can't imagine more than one at once. Sawtooths are easy though.
@sniper What's crazy is the rock quarry one is the easiest because they put explosives around the area for you to exploit. The ones in the wild.... OMG so intense
On the way to Sunfall travelling from east to west, travelling on the recommended route given suddenly shows up not one but TWO! First time encountering them (a legit WTF moment) it took me 30 minutes camping behind some rocks to kill them both (being more experienced it now takes me about 3-4 minutes to kill them), one of the side quests (required for the all allies joined trophy) next to the location mentioned above, has another rockbreaker but this one's easier to deal with if you keep the high ground. A Corrupted Zone near the Thunderjaw hunting ground has two corrupted rockbreakers, you can either use the rocks for cover on one side of that area or use the high ground on the other side of the stream to take them down.
That regular one is kind of a surprise if you're not expecting it. Seems like an arena where you're going to fight a bunch of enemies, then you just have this thing pummeling you and it's hard to analyze because it's not above ground too much. I just laid tons of traps, went through most of my resources making more during the fight, and barely survived in the end. lol
First try. Use the arch duck and dodge from there
buwhahaha go play nioh my friend you'll be repeating some bosses at least 20 times xD
I beat Nioh months ago and the only one who gave me a lot of trouble was that samurai from the first map. Most bosses only cost me less than 5 retrys actually. I'm not trying to say Horizon is harder by any means
Get the skill to call a ride it helps a lot distracting them and dodge a lot
Yes! When you had to take on two Rockbreakers at the same time... by far the hardest part... guess it may depend on difficulty? (I played on the hardest) I probably died 17 times there, when I finally got those two bastards it was so rewarding. The flower between the two Thunderjaws was pretty insane too, until I leveled and figured stuff out at least, now those guys are a piece of cake.
I just used the environment to my advantage. They're right by some big rocks and they can't climb that shit. It still took a while to take them down but you're pretty safe the whole time. It's the cowardly way to take them down. :D
I just made them fight each other, and then mopped up the other one!
Exactly what I did the first time I faced them!
I tried sniping them from across the river atop some rocks that was higher than the ones near them. They can shoot rocks at you, but they're easy to avoid. The baddies that normally patrol that area are the most annoying part, and they ended up killing me because I wasn't always paying attention. I think I went through several days on in game day/night cycle just to get that one down to 50%. I have some ideas to try out the area when I go back though.
I call BS 5 retrys my ass...
I got lucky on my first run in with Rockbreakers. I was up high on a ledge and they seemed to be stuck on the other side of the river and never came any closer to me. There were also a few Sawtooth attacking them so it made my job easier. 90+ hours in and still enjoying it. lol,...what is the plural of Sawtooth anyway,......? Sawteeth?
Agreed. A thunderjaw is way easier. I will fight 2 thunderjaws at once before I mess with 1 rockbreaker any day.
I still haven't managed to get one of the corrupted rock breakers down yet. I keep trying different things, then giving up.:( I could probably look it up how to do it, but I want to get that one on my own.:)
Yeah I don't think corrupted sawtooths are the least killed because they are the hardest, I think it's just because you don't see that many of them. Sawtooths pretty much get replaced by ravagers around the same time you start seeing a lot more corrupted enemies. Corrupted rockbreakers are definitely harder
cheers to the guy who picked 12,000 rocks lol
Lol he knew he would get someone's attention.. 😂
At least someone found them useful. I never touched them after the tutorial.
I use them all the time for distractions.
@FITSniper well yea but the thing is that after a certain point in the game you don't really need distractions as you are powerfull enough to face the enemies.
@Ziv Well sure, that's only IF you want to go head on with the enemies and have the ammo. Some people may prefer stealth especially against the human enemies.
@Sunny_D That's not true at all. I went full stealth and still never used rocks. It's not hard to walk around them if they aren't looking or stealth kill them if they come close. They CAN be used as a distraction if you aren't confident in yourself enough but the AI in the game wasn't very smart. Like Ziv said after the tutorial you can easily dominate the enemies. You made a good point about ammo but with how common the ingredients were and how quickly things can be crafted you basically had infinite ammo.
Once I learned how to whistle I never used another rock for the rest of the game.
I use the rocks when my whistle is out of range.....I lure them in with rocks then whistle.
@II_BONE_II That's a good idea, I'll remember that one.
I use them to lure in tougher enemies to a dino that I have overridden since they don't always go over to them to attack them. Helpful when you have to go up a group of tougher enemies like Stalkers or the bellowbacks.
When a palestinian plays Horizon.
I put 102 hours into this game and got the platinum trophy and I'm not even a trophy hunter. That is a testament to how good this game is. Even with all the time spent and all the trophies I still have more quest's and datapoints to find. This game was worth the $60 I spent and I mean it was worth EVERY single penny of it.
I won't be platinuming it but I'm definitely a few dozen hours into the game.
If you beat the game you might as well go for it. You get an avatar and theme as well
They make it easy on you, once you beat the game they still let you clean up the missing stuff you need. The biggest pain for me was the training dummies. I'm not a trophy hunter so I didn't go in and check them out until after I beat it. I would've been knocking all those over from the start if I had known.
The platinum is pretty easy. By the time you finish the game you may just need to wrap up a few collectibles.
@InTheZoneAC I never got anything for the plat. Is it the same avatar and theme you got for being a plus member? Maybe that's why.
@pody The theme and avatar is supposedly North America 'exclusive', but if you ask the Twitter 'Ask PlayStation' guys for whatever location you're in (I'm in the UK so I asked @AskPS_UK) they can give you a code for the theme.
I knew this guys have potential when I played Killzone on the vita they are simply geniuses
Different teams. Guerrilla Cambridge made KZ mercenary and RIGS (some of the best games on each system Vita/PSVR respectively). Sadly they are now shutdown.
what about the stat of less than 30% of players finishing the story?
How they decide to play the game after it is bought,shouldn't be anyone's concern.
I'm one of those 30% and I love this game. It's a long journey. Most of them will get there.
What about the stat that 95% of your comments are you trolling PlayStation articles?
Only 95% ????? More like 99.99% judging by the comment history.
isn't 30% of players finishing the story a pretty good amount. usually games are much lower than this sadly. also it's an RPG so not realy that surprising.
True, look at the trophies for CoD or a battlefield game. Story mission trophies after the first 2 levels are all rare or very rare. I would wager that maybe 10% or less of players finish a call of Duty story.
I think the Average is 14% if I remember correctly.
I just knew you'd show up in a Horizon Zero Dawn article. Did somebody at Guerrilla games fuck you or something? And like what Sniperwithacause commented it's none of your concerns, idiot.
it is cause I'm in the minority who beat the game
@Frinker 'it is cause I'm in the minority who beat the game' Nobody here believes you.
