"Horizon Zero Dawn" gamers have been hooked on the game as it is said to be unlike other games in that it does not set up where resilience and constant hack-and slash can eventually bring down an enemy. "Horizon Zero Dawn" has a different teaching method that forces players to change tactics using only a bow and arrow. The game also features a number of side quests enough to get gamers playing for hours at a time.

Weapons In This RPG Is Unlike In Most AAA Games

In the gaming age where guns are the main weapons used in most AAA games, "Horizon Zero Dawn" is set in a futuristic apocalyptic world where the weapons used are only a bow and arrow, rocks and some rope. While these traits have the possibility of working against the game, it turned into something that eventually got gamers wanting for more. Note that while other games like "Tomb Raider" also use a bow in its arsenal, it is mixed with pistols and rifles which are known as better options to get further into the game.

In "Horizon Zero Dawn," learning to master its strong but limited mechanics may be very rewarding, IGN reported. The game also slowly introduces the gamer to different types of dangers. Gamers have to make an effort to learn various techniques.

Talks of "Horizon Zero Dawn" Already Started

In other news, "Horizon Zero Dawn" has received much-needed critical praise and raving reviews on PS4. Now, Guerrilla Games is said to be working on a sequel. On that note, Guerilla's John Gonzales revealed that the story would be a top priority, Express UK reported.

The "Horizon Zero Dawn" lead writer also revealed how the team was humbled by the players' response to the story as well as their emotional connection with the protagonist, Aloy. Gonzales felt that it was their duty to honor the time players invested in the game and would not disappoint those who gave the game their support. It is expected that more machines and weapons would be coming into the game as well as the sequel.
