Horizon: Zero Dawn Tokyo Game Show Trailer Shows Off Gorgeous Visuals

By | 1 month ago 

In a new trailer for the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, Sony and Guerrilla Games release a brand new trailer for Horizon Zero Dawn showing off plenty of combat and story elements.

For a game that isn’t scheduled to arrive until next year, Horizon: Zero Dawn has been in the spotlight quite a bit over the past week. At the PlayStation 4 Pro reveal, not only did fans finally get to see the long rumored PlayStation 4 Pro, but they were also treated to more impressive gameplay enhanced with 4K and updated visuals. Fresh off the PlayStation Meeting in New York City, Sony has released another brand new trailer for the upcoming Tokyo Game Show event showing off more gameplay footage and additional story elements.

While fans have been aware that Horizon: Zero Dawn takes place sometime after a catastrophic event thanks to the E3 2015 trailer, though details surrounding the fall have been scarce. This new trailer shows off more footage of the collapse as with an impressive city complete with skyscrapers and bright lights going dark from some sort of power failure. From there, the once impressive streets and buildings are reclaimed by nature, giving way to a landscape closer to what players are more familiar with from the previous demos.

Combat is also heavily featured as the Aloy, the game’s main protagonist, squares off against both human and machine enemies. Interestingly enough, Aloy the trailer focuses on more humanoid type of enemies this time around, showing a number of mysterious figures wearing cloaks and tribal looking masks making life even more difficult for the main character. Based on the footage, it appears players will also be able to go up against larger robot creatures such as a giant bird like bot, almost harking back to fan-favorite PlayStation 3 game, Shadow of the Colossus.

Considering the trailer is primed for Tokyo Game Show, the footage is entirely in Japanese, meaning many fans won’t have a clear picture as to what is going on. Fans will still want to check it out however, as new gameplay shows off some interesting story elements and gorgeous visuals.

With Horizon Zero Dawn continuing to impress fans and critics alike, the game was unfortunately delayed from its expected fall 2016 release to early 2017 in order to give the team more time to polish the experience. The impressive trailers certainly don’t help make the wait feel any shorter, but with added development time, it’s clear Guerrilla Games is working hard to ensure Horizon does not disappoint.
