Horizon: Zero Dawn Special Editions Revealed

By | 5 months ago 

Video game developer Guerrilla Games officially reveals the different Special Edition versions for its forthcoming action-RPG title Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Despite the fact that Guerrilla Games just recently announced Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s release will be delayed into 2017, the studio has now unveiled details involving the open world title’s pre-order bonuses and the contents found within the game’s Special Edition packages. As it happens, there are two separate collectible versions of Horizon: Zero Dawn, with one being a Collector’s Edition priced at $120 on Amazon, and the other a Digital Deluxe Edition listed at $69.99.

As far as the physical materials for Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s Collector’s Edition go, players who are content to spend additional money on the game to receive extra goodies will get a Special Steelbook case, a 9-inch statue of the female protagonist Aloy by Gentle Giant, a 48 page art book, as well as a voucher for an exclusive PS4 Dynamic Theme. Not to mention, players will be privy to items for use in-game such as the Carja Storm Ranger Armor, a Carja Striker Bow, the Carja Trader Pack, the Banuk Trailblazer Armor, a Banuk Culling Bow, the Banuk Traveler Pack, the Nora Keeper Pack, and last but not least, those who pre-order it get the Nora Machine Trapper Pack.

While Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s Digital Deluxe Edition is set to provide players with all of the same in-game items found within the Collector’s Edition, aside from a digital version of the art book, fans will miss out on receiving any the physical wares. Those who pre-order the standard iteration of the title at GameStop, though, won’t be left out of the bonus fun entirely, as they will receive the Nora Lookout Armor and the Nora Longshot Bow. At any rate, for a better look at the two Special Editions’ offerings, check out the two promo stills below.


With Guerrilla Games now showing off Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s Special Editions after announcing the action-RPG’s release on February 28 of next year, it’s safe to presume that the studio is set on fulfilling its development duties to hit the specific launch date and to avoid another delay. After all, loads of fans would be incredibly disappointed if Guerrilla Games pushed the title back even further in 2017 to make for an almost two-year wait after its announcement with a gameplay trailer at E3 2015.

In any event, the originality and sheer ambition of Horizon: Zero Dawn would probably be enough to sustain fans’ excitement about the game should developers delay it again. Many already consider it to be one of the PlayStation 4’s most exciting upcoming exclusive games, and waiting even longer could increase the allure of its mystery. Of course, with this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo just around the corner, Guerrilla Games is set to shed more light on the title with the promise of a big reveal at E3 2016, so we will likely begin to learn even more about Horizon: Zero Dawn as the year progresses.
