Guerrilla Games officially releases two new trailers for its forthcoming action-RPG, Horizon: Zero Dawn, showcasing the Stormbird and Behemoth machines in the game.
With Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s release date just a few short weeks away, it seems as if Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games have decided to amp up promotion for the open world title in order to inform fans with as many details about the PlayStation 4 exclusive as possible so as to sway them into purchasing it on day one. Today, the game’s developers put out a couple of new trailers, which provide a close look and incisive rundown of the two dinosaur-machine hybrid creatures known as the Stormbird and Behemoth.
As seen below in the videos courtesy of PlayStation’s YouTube channel, both the Stormbird and Behemoth’s sizes, abilities, and habitats are given brief coverage, as well as the vulnerabilities that will assist Horizon: Zero Dawn players in taking down the robots. As far as the Stormbird is concerned, it is a combat-class machine that can soar through the sky at high altitudes to swoop down and attack its prey, and it is also able to fight on land with a bunch of powerful attacks such as claw slashes, wing blasts, and electrical discharges in the air.
Of course, Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s Behemoth is no slouch either, as it can handily hold its own against the protagonist Aloy, with the ability to charge at its enemies, use its anti-gravity capabilities to throw weighty objects, and make use of its set of grinding drills to break up and chuck rocks when provoked. Not to mention, since it’s registered as a transport-class machine, the Behemoth also can move cargo from smaller machines of the same class into a container housed in the techno-geared beast’s stomach.
The release of today’s trailers for the Stormbird and Behemoth follow yesterday’s in-depth look at the deadly Thunderjaw and Snapmaw, with Guerrilla Games having released two other dedicated clips focusing on the Horizon: Zero Dawn machines. While all of these creatures have been seen previously and used multiple times in various gameplay trailers, it’s nice to see Horizon: Zero Dawn‘s developers providing an acute analysis of the enemies for fans in order to sate their curiosity.
For those unaware, Horizon: Zero Dawn just recently went gold, as the developers have finished the majority of the work on the base game and the title has been sent off to manufacturers for copying and pressing, so all of the latest trailers for the title’s machine enemies will likely remain fresh in fans’ minds when the action-RPG goes live at the end of the month. So, taking all of this into account, it will be interesting to see if Horizon: Zero Dawn manages to transcend the beauty that’s already evident in its trailers and earn its spot as one of the most highly anticipated video games of 2017.
Horizon: Zero Dawn is set to launch for PlayStation 4 on February 28, 2017 in the US, and on March 1, 2017 in Europe.
