Game Of Thrones Artists Worked On Horizon Zero Dawn

Karakter is a German studio who have done a lot of design work on Game of Thrones over the years. So when it came time for Horizon Zero Dawn to be populated with gruff and furry-clothed people, Guerrilla knew exactly where to turn.

God ! Those concepts art looks magnificent.

Relientk772381d ago

These arts are amazing. Can Guerilla make a Game of Thrones game please

Thunder_G0d_Bane2381d ago

Well I think Aloy was inspired by Jon Snow's chick Ygritte. Its fairly obvious, ginger with the bow and arrow and similar clothing style.

naBs2381d ago

Idk why you got so many dislikes, but that's actually correct - They wanted a strong character where they took inspiration from Ygritte (game of thrones) and I think also Ripley or w.e from Alien.


Joris de Man on composing music for the Horizon series

In the video game industry, where visual design and game mechanics typically grab the limelight, the significance of music in enhancing the overall gaming experience is often underestimated. Music can be a key component in the player’s emotional connection with a game. It amplifies emotional impact, heightens tension, and can be a powerful driver of narrative. We’ve had the chance to speak to Joris de Man, a renowned Dutch composer best known for his work on the Killzone series, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and its sequel Horizon: Forbidden West. During the Game Access conference in Brno, we talked about the process of composing music for video games and how he created the harmonies that have shaped some of our most beloved gaming experiences.

To keep using him as the music composer in their games.

Joris seems like a great guy. I spoke to him briefly once about how much I loved his music and he was really friendly/humble.

Up there with the top tier in the industry. Love Guerrilla Games - Horizon Burning Shores is simply STUNNING.

1Victor137d ago

Can’t wait for their next franchise

SullysCigar137d ago

Same. They nailed it with Horizon. The trouble is I also want a new Killzone! Can't I just have it all?!

jznrpg137d ago

I’m with you I want Horizon 3 , Killzone and new IPs

badz149136d ago

I have yet to play Burning Shores as I just started Forbidden West (bought at launch, just unwrapped last weekend LOL) and playing on PS5.

man...I still can't believe the graphics especially now I'm playing it on my LG OLED. that graphics and with stable performance backing it up, GG really is the master of their craft!

Vengeance1138137d ago

32.7M sales in the Horizon franchise! With 8.4M coming from Forbidden West alone! Truly a hugely successful game and franchise as a whole. Looking forward to Horizon III

Shane Kim137d ago

That's kind of a huge drop though. It's only been two games.

VersusDMC137d ago

One year after realease HZD sold 7.6 million.


So not a drop off.

Unless you're saying a HFW should have sold as much now as HZD sold in 5 years?

Vengeance1138137d ago

It's been 3 games, this includes Call of the Mountain. Also no, its a great improvement over HZD.

solideagle137d ago

lol you are comparing:

HZD: 28 February 2017 - May 2023 (6 years+)

HFW: 18 February 2022 - May 2023 (1 year+)

We will see if it surpass original number.

Phoenix76137d ago

@shane, 2 full main games, 2 DLC add ons, 1 VR spin off game, oh and a an official LEGO set.
Not too bad for an ip that's only been on market for 6 years

Wow, very impressive. I didn't know the numbers were so high for Forbidden West. Still playing through it myself

thesoftware730137d ago (Edited 137d ago )

Yooo, when I first saw that Killzone 1 footage at E3, my friends my brothers and I were like, Holy shit! When it came out, it didn't look exactly like it, but we sunk so many hours into 1 & 2.

I even liked Killzone: SF, it was a spectacle to look at, and even today it looks good. I hope they make a new one. Can you imagine how that will look, and they can get some modern FPS pointers from Bungie.

blacktiger137d ago

thank you fps lover, I'm with you

talocaca137d ago

Such a wonderful studio. They deserve all their success.

The Decima Engine is absolute 🔥 I'm just mad they have abandoned Killzone.

OzzY-waZZy137d ago (Edited 137d ago )

Kinda wish they move on from Horizon tbh.
