Horizon: Zero Dawn’s Open World
he latest trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn is all about “creating a new world.”
Art director Jan-Bart van Beek describes the games’ “eco-topes” that each have their own variety of machines and environments. As well as the forest area we’ve already seen, we get a glimpse of the harsher deserts, snowy mountain peaks, jungles, and ancient ruins.
In addition to the day and night cycle, Horizon: Zero Dawn has a dynamic weather system within these eco-topes and all of these factors work together to affect the gameplay.
Even if you’ve no interest in the developer side of things, the video is worth a watch to get a peek at the gameplay alone – it looks fantastic.
Horizon: Zero Dawn is scheduled for release for PS4 on February 28, 2017.
