'Horizon Zero Dawn' Gameplay

The upcoming PlayStation exclusive is an action role playing game by Guerilla Games. When the 'Horizon Zero Dawn" release date arrives next year, PlayStation 4 gamers will play its main character named Aloy, as she goes against robotic creatures simply referred to as "Machines."

In the open world inside the "Horizon Zero Dawn" game, Aloy will need to kill and capture these "Machines" as a means of survival. She can employ a variety of methods to achieve her objective such as stealth, traps, arrows, explosive as well as the more direct melee attacks. Aloy needs these kills for their metals, electricity and other components.

While the "Horizon Zero Dawn" offers an open world environment to explore, the game's main story is said to guide players through the world. In addition, there are also plenty of side quests available made more enticing by their potential rewards.
