There’s good news and bad news for fans of the highly-anticipated Horizon: Zero Dawn from Guerrilla Games.
Firstly the good news, there’s a new E3 2016 trailer for the game (embedded above). Titled ‘Aloys Journey,’ the trailer gives a glimpse at the story of Horizon, which looks intriguing and potentially full of twists, yet the trailer raises some questions that remain unanswered simultaneously.
Now the bad news – which many people may have been expecting anyway – the game has been delayed until 2017. However (good news again), it has finally received a definitive release date of 28th February 2017 in the USA, 1st March in Europe, and 3rd March in the UK!
“It wasn’t an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it. However, we also want to ensure that Horizon Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn.
We realise that this decision may not please everyone. At the same time, we’re confident that the advantages of the additional development time afforded by the new date will become clear in the coming months, as we start to share more cool details and videos from Horizon Zero Dawn.”
Said Guerrilla Games’ managing director Hermen Hulst on the PlayStation Blog.
