In a lush, post-apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of a forgotten civilization, pockets of humanity live on in primitive hunter-gatherer tribes. Their dominion over the new wilderness has been usurped by the Machines – fearsome mechanical creatures of unknown origin.
Horizon Zero Dawn is an exhilarating new action role playing game exclusively for the PlayStation® 4 System, developed by the award winning Guerrilla Games, creators of PlayStation’s venerated Killzone franchise.
