Guerrilla Games' Horizon Zero Dawn not only raised the bar in terms of technical accomplishment on current generation console hardware, it handed in the best 4K HDR presentation we've seen from any PlayStation 4 Pro title.
Best new ip of this gen, set standard, its the top dog to beat on consoles and its very far away from the competition. For the first open world Project from GG is just an amazing job. Great interview!!!!! What will be the next Project? what is the first tem already working on? Thats the questions. The competition with ND will be very good for us, gamers!!!
Take Killzone to the next level, thats what they should do! The KZ IP needs some serious love. Now that GG has proven they can do both visuals and story (+open world) they should resurrect Killzone
"Take Killzone to the next level" - more like the previous level. KZ2 was awesome. With KZ3 onwards they started pandering to the COD style gamers and took the weight out of the gameplay. Ruined it.
I want a sequel to Killzone: Mercenary rather than a sequel to Shadow Fall.
@guys above, It should be a full reboot, but retain that heavy feeling and atmosphere KZ2 had. Or, they can give the Helgast a spin off series. They lost to us, Helgan is destroyed forcing those who survived to enbark on a deep space colonisation mission. Think Mass effect but with Helgast!
@ asmith2306 I preferred KZ3 over KZ2. Both good games don't get me wrong. Completed 3, some of the final levels were awesome. Didn't complete 2 though, that slog at the end with constant re-spawning enemies at the Visari Palace, twas relentless.
All killzones have been trash they need to leave it be horzion is a great game, but that's where it stops. Nothing more nothing less stop acting like it is the second coming of Jesus game is a one and done with a mediocre story.
graphics were great..game play and characters were boring as f.
I don't think so, buddy.
why are you such a freakin cheerleader for this game? lol
You the one who hate this game way too much. Even more so, you doubt GG way too much. So yeah, I find your opinion is over dramatic.
I'm fairly certain youre 12...
Now that's what I talking about GG !
They really did raise the bar for consoles with this game.
show me a PC game that is as lush and beautiful as Horizon.
Horizon is the best new IP of this generation
You spelled Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds wrong
Sure, if your standards are low enough.
6 Million people might disagree with you on that. Guess how many people play Horizon vs pubg in a year from now? Just look at steam player Charts and twitch #1
And how many play DayZ nowadays?
Another online shooter. yay
isn't that a last gen game? it sure looks lke it/
Ahaha gotta love the circle jerk over here. Fact is, noone is talking about Horizon in a year from now while PUBG is still getting updates and millions of players playing it every day. Same reason League, Overwatch, DOTA and CSGO are huge hits. It keeps players engaged, something I love about those games. But what do I know. This site isnt something where you can talk about things not pro Sony. Sorry for that guys.
Really ? Another freaking battle royal game ? You just want to kill SP, aren't ya ? You just like Phil Spencer who just lost faith on SP games.
lol....VGL is eager to dish it out, but whines and cries when he gets it in return.
@UCForce So Horizon is just another RPG? Like we haven't had a lot of them already RIGHT? I mostly play MP and prefer those over most 8h SP games I play once and im done with yes.
It's about giving people both. I'm glad Titanfall 2 makes you feel salty because they gave us awesome SP mode. The thing is, these guys are former Infinity Ward and I know they can make a great SP game. No excuse for not including SP in Original TitanFall, so they fixed that mistake in TF2.
Focusing on sp in a mp game wasnt the best idea and sales were down from 10 Million Titanfall 1 even though they had the huge PlayStation playerbase this time. They should have improved the mp and added more content. Now the franchise is Dead, what a great Job to focus on sp eh?
@ Razzer He goes around misrepresenting, trolling and hates it when people call him out for it. He tries to associate with the biggest Xbox fanboys on Twitter and considers anything positive that is PlayStation and not Xbox-related a "circlejerk": https://twitter.com/VideoGa... 🙄 Got mad because people were happy that God of War (a great looking action game that he is disingenuously trying to convince people is somehow a far lesser action game than before) won an E3 award. This guy's kidding no-one. ---- Fact is VGL, you're in an article talking about Horizon saying nobody is talking about it (based irony), and all the while Guerrilla presented their game & engine at SIGGRAPH not long ago, Digital Foundry deemed it important enough to come back to and discuss, the game has been prominently featured in many "best of 2017 so far" lists, still selling like crazy, and its great looking DLC expansion is coming this year and just got a release date of November, with Guerrilla actually providing plenty of updates to the base game - something you seem completely oblivious to. Another false assertion about what you can and can't say on here. You can talk about Nintendo just fine, it seems you're just a little bit sensitive about Xbox not being as loved by the community (or in fact, the world).
Yeah, I agree. Can't think of anything that really comes close.
I bought a pro, a 4k tv and Horizon at the same time. It was expensive but worth it!
I did the same. I even went OLED.
I recently got an LG C7 65" OLED, a PS4 Pro, and this game. While it does look fantastic, even utterly insane at times (and I'm a hardcore PC gamer with a 1080 Ti), it has got me thinking: If this is the infancy of HDR, the next 5 - 10 years is going to be unreal. My TV only hits 700 nits or so at best. This developer mentions the game being mastered up to 6,000 nits. I mean.. wow, WTF. For comparison, the ambient light of an average clear sunny day is about 30,000 nits. Unfortunately the faster input response "HDR Game Mode" makes it look quite a bit less impressive, but the cinema HDR mode is just insanity, but pretty hard to play with 88ms + of lag. Hopefully, a TV fix addresses the game mode dullness compared to the more accurate cinema mode.
The fact they used a new CBR pattern is awesome
Every second word coming out of their mouth is 4K but game actually covers only half of the REAL pixels, GG !
Haha :D There we have it.
It's a lovely looking game. I found myself more drawn to uncharted 4 over saturated effect. But both games are impressive. I was worried 4k gaming wouldn't look as great as people made out. I was very wrong.
This game was really good.. I was amazed by the visuals too although i didnt like the costumes too much.. A true current gen experience that deserves a sequel.
So while they were there did they actually get on to them about other things like the physics engines or the animations of the machines and all the different pieces of them that make them up? Because there is SO much more to the engine than just the resolution lol.
The water looked shit though ........... Run Obidan they're coming for you ... :D
While CD3 looks complete shit, love how you have nothing bad to say about that dogshit looking game... poor xbox fanboy.
But it's still impressive for PS4 open world game. GG stepped out the comfort zone and did something new. And it did well in the end for us gamers and critics. I happily to say that they are way better than Bungie and 343. For almost decade, GG have been doubt and hate by people. "Sigh" But now, GG is now evolved.
Yet the use of draw distance hiding fog in heavily detailed areas was abundant, something nobody ever mentions.
I do aware that. But does it bother me that much ? Nope.
Those guys at Guerilla Games in Amsterdam really know their stuff! One of the best devs in the world. 'nuff said.
