Sweet, looking forward to something new!

Mostafeto2836d ago

It is entirely new and something I bet every one of us dreamt about at least once. :D Getting to blow up giant mechanical dinosaur robots haha :D

S2Killinit2836d ago

yup. I had a transformer dinosaur toy when I was a kid, you could dismantle it, loved pretending its destruction in a battle. haha

game4funz2835d ago

I still prefer normal dinosaurs to be honest. Maybe someday someone will make a turok like dinosaur hunter game.... Till then this must be the next closest thing.

Being able to break away from the mold of FPS must be a refreshing move for them.

Imp0ssibl32836d ago

I think they're underrated, the Killzone games are some of the best FPS available. Perhaps Horizon will allow gamers to see the studio in a different light.

Movefasta19932836d ago

No they aren't.KZ2 is amazing but Shadowfall?Nope.

Killzone games are some of the worst fps games available. Fixed for you Buddy. Honestly though if you feel that way you should probably get a CT scan. Muddy controls, boring story, brown color palette, stupid ai, like I said some of the worst around. Literally never thought I would get another game from guerilla, then like magic horizon appeared and it looks awesome. Please don't ever go back to killzone.

Tobsesan2836d ago

Some of the best FPS available like WHAT THE FREAK?
Looks like you hate FPS

thejigisup2836d ago

kz1 had the best formula, kz2 was amazing though it ditched the previous formula, kz3 was good technically but thats about it

kneon2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )


People who whine about the KZ controls either lack skill and so they fail to adapt to DIFFERENT controls than what they are used to, or they don't know how to play a game without massive auto-aim.

game4funz2835d ago

Gonna have to disagree... They scream call of duty clone.

Don't think they're anything special at all. Can't recall the story completely or the characters... Not sure they were very memorable.
Granted the hellghast are much more interesting then random terrorists.

These guys are not wasting their talent. That's a good thing.

Alexious2836d ago

For the graphics they're among the best in the whole industry, and for Horizon they hired a great writer. Fingers crossed

Night992836d ago

Is it really creative freedom to copy Ubisoft Openworld formula? RadioTowers, Assassins Creed climbing? It would be creative if they tried to create their own Openwold flavor but insted it looks like they trie to develope an Ubisoft game.

Kaneki-Ken2836d ago

Bruh. The blindness is strong in this one.

MasterCornholio2836d ago

I'd say more like a CD Project Red game. And we know those developers make excellent games.

It's kind of like having The Witcher 3 as an exclusive.

Alexious2836d ago

I think it will be quite different from Assassin's Creed.

Aloy-Boyfriend2836d ago

Like Assassins Creed copied lots of Sly Cooper formulas?

But why has Horizon: Zero Dawn has to have so much Ubisoft Openworld into it? Why this game needs RadioTowers and climbing that looks straight up copied from Assassins Creed? I am so tired of the Ubisoft formula and this game looks to have so much of it in it, I swear if this game even has the Ubisoft collectathon with some bullshit popping everywhere on the map I will not even buy this game as a budget. I don't need Ubisoft games made by Sony.

ninsigma2836d ago

It looks nothing like a ubisoft open world game....it actually looks good!

Kaneki-Ken2836d ago

PlayStation doesn't need your blindness to play their games. Go back and play the bugging Assassin Creed since they were the one who originally has robot dinosaurs, able to ride dinosaurs and have beautiful graphics that are not Downgraded a few months before release.

Tussin1872836d ago


Well, since you obviously think that then don't buy it. Others, like me, think this game looks awesome. There are FPS coming out (pick one) and they will have guns. They will have guns like one of the most hated games out called Call of Duty. Why do those games have guns? I'm so sick of guns=terrible game.


sullynathan2836d ago

yeah, it looks like the typical open world we've been getting in the past years but it has a cool setting and lore.

G20WLY2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

"typical open world...but it has cool setting and lore"

And enemies and weapons and gameplay mechanics and characters and RPG elements and strategy elements and robot dinosaurs.

Yep, totally typical! /S

sullynathan2836d ago

of course, haven't you noticed how nearly every big game in the last 5 years has had this style of open world?

Having pseudo-stealth, having hunting mechanics, having "rpg" mechanics like leveling and dialogue choices and even this style of climbing/platforming even the inclusion of a bow or crossbow, and this whole thing. Ubisoft has been doing this a lot. Look at Ass Creed Black flags, unity, syndicate, Far Cry 3, 4, primal, Watch dogs, The new ghost recon wildlands. Outside of Ubisoft other games are also already doing this like Mad Max and Mafia 3.

It is impossible to ignore this when you've been paying attention to games in recent years.

Night992836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

@G20WLY Assasin's Creed has some RPG elements to if you want to view upgradable skills this way, you can upgradab skills with skill trees since a while in this games now and I bet the RPG elements of Horizon will not be that much deeper than what we have in Assasin's Creed. Dinosaurs are in the last Far Cry Game. And Horizon even has freaking RadioTowers just like every Ubisoft openworld game and climbing that looks straight copied from Assassins Creed so what looks so different to Ubisoft games to you?
