Killzone developer Guerrilla Games is taking a step away from the first-person shooters that made it famous with Horizon: Zero Dawn, a game that’s equal parts futuristic and prehistoric.
Taking place after the fall of modern civilization, Horizon: Zero Dawn sees players using a combination of archaic weaponry like the classic bow and arrow, augmented with explosives, lasers and all the other gadgets you’d expect to see in a futuristic warzone. The E3 demo followed a lone female hunter as she attempted to take down a herd of cybernetically enhanced deer, before a gigantic beast — imagine a Tyrannosaur crossed with the Terminator — crashed through the underbrush to attack. After using a small arsenal of gadgets to damage the creature, the huntress used a series of ropes to pull the creature to the ground, where she lined up a shot into its glowing weakpoint. The resulting explosion destroyed the beast in a shower of glorious pyrotechnics.
No release date has been revealed for Horizon: Zero Dawn, though Guerilla Games has plans to release the game on the PlayStation 4.
