Horizon Zero Dawn story trailer analysis

So over the past few days, Guerrilla Games released a story trailer for a game which I’ve been excited for since I saw it at the PS4 Pro conference a few months ago: “Horizon Zero Dawn”. With this trailer, we got a few more story details, but just enough to leave us intrigued without dumping it all on us. Today… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

The Wire Actor Lance Reddick Might Have a Role to Play in Horizon Zero Dawn

[embedded content] Yesterday, Sony released a promising Horizon Zero Dawn story trailer, which shows Aloy learning about a threat to her tribe. We got to see some of the post-post-apocalyptic world, some friends, and some foes. But in case you didn’t notice, The Wire and Fringe actor Lance Reddick briefly appeared in the video as well (at the 1.25 mark above). Fans are now wondering what role, if any, he might be playing in the game. Neither Reddick nor Guerrilla Games have confirmed his involvement but as GameSpot noted, when a Twitter user pointed out that Reddick appeared in the trailer, he quietly retweeted it with no comments to add. Reddick has been involved in a number of video games. His recent roles include lending his voice to Quantum Break and Destiny. In other Horizon Zero Dawn news, the game’s European release date mistakenly appeared as March 3, 2017 at the PlayStation Store. Sony has confirmed that this is an error and the release date remains March 1 in the region.

Sony Shuts Down Guerrilla Games in Cambridge, Re-prioritizing

Fortunately, This Has Not Affected Guerrilla Amsterdam and Horizon Zero Dawn Sony just confirmed that they will soon shut down their Guerrilla Games studio in Cambridge. Previously known as SCEE Cambridge Studio, Guerrilla Cambridge may represent a first step in Sony’s reorganization of European studios. Obviously this was a big decision, one that may or may not benefit Sony’s game development going forward. But the PlayStation publisher claimed that it resulted from a need to rearrange focus: “Whilst we accept that this decision will mean that we risk losing high calibre staff, by focusing on other Studios with exciting new projects in development, (including continued work on PlayStation VR), we believe we will be in a stronger position going forward and able to offer the best possible content of the highest quality to our players.” And Sony has clarified that shutting down Cambridge was not based on the studio’s delivery of content. They gave us PlayStation VR game RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, PS Vita’s Killzone: Mercenary and have contributed to development of other major PlayStation titles for 19 years. Sony added: “This decision should not take anything away from the incredible games and services that Guerrilla Cambridge has delivered.” As for the rest of Guerrilla Games, we’ll keep you updated as things move…

Looking Forward to Sony’s 2017 Published Games

PlayStation LifeStyle recently took a look at Sony’s 2016 published games, so it only made sense to look into the future. After all, the only thing more exciting than the games PlayStation 4 owners can already play are the ones that are still being worked on. So, check out what Sony 2017 games are currently set for release. Just a note: several of Sony’s upcoming games don’t have any sort of release date at all attached to them. That meant that games like Dreams, Farpoint, Detroit: Become Human, and Matterfall were left off the list. Those very well could end up being 2017 releases, but Sony isn’t ready to date them. Check out the full list of Sony 2017 games below: Currently the 13 games can be broken down into three categories: original games, sequels, and remasters. There are currently three original games set to release in 2017 (although that can certainly change): Nioh, Drawn to Death, and Horizon Zero Dawn. Meanwhile, there are four remastered titles and six sequels. It’s also worth noting that more games will almost definitely be announced as the year goes on. This is only a taste of what 2017 will have to offer, but huge releases are typically known for a…

Horizon Zero Dawn Story Trailer Focuses on a New Threat

[embedded content] In the new Horizon Zero Dawn story trailer released today, Sony and Guerrilla Games introduced a new threat that protagonist Aloy must face. You’ll also get to see more of the post-post-apocalyptic world, some of Aloy’s allies, and a few of the machines you’ll encounter in the game. “To learn about a new threat to her tribe, Aloy will embark on a dangerous journey that will reveal a dark plot that stands to change her world forever,” the video description says. Guerrilla’s Jeroen Roding says Horizon Zero Dawn will answer questions raised by the trailer, including who the masked warriors are, what the source of their power over the machines is, and who will join Aloy on the field of battle. Horizon Zero Dawn launches on February 28 in North America and March 1 in Europe, exclusively for PlayStation 4. Back on December 8, Guerrilla Managing Director Hermen Hulst said, “The entire @Guerrilla team comes together for an update briefing on the #HorizonZeroDawn home stretch. The final push!” [Source: PlayStation Blog, Hermen Hulst] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

Epic Horizon Zero Dawn Trailer Shows Enemies, Friends, and Plot

A Horizon Zero Dawn Trailer Revealing the Game’s Darker Story Ever since the reveal at E3 2015, we’ve been getting more and more revealing tidbits for Horizon Zero Dawn. Our first look at the world showed us how we would survive. Gamers gained a sense of the environment, the kind of enemies we’d fight, overall, something new. Then 2016 showed us a bit more of Aloy, the player character’s and her awesome improvisation with robotics and a bow.  Everything is stacking up to a unique and memorable experience, and now we get an in-depth look at the story through a new cinematic trailer: Finally, a look at what Aloy is up against. Seems there’s plenty of interesting plot points and side-characters to engage. Apparently, a post-societal world hasn’t eliminated much of the RPG elements we love, nor the enemies we grow to hate. What’s left is dissecting this trailer for every extra tidbit. Surely, there are plenty to find. For one, it looks like Aloy’s getup will be customizable, at least to some extent. Horizon Zero Dawn releases in North America for PS4 February 28, while Europe will see it March 1st. But, according to the PlayStation Store, the UK will see it March 3rd….

Horizon: Zero Dawn Suffers Another Delay

A Longer Wait for Horizon: Zero Dawn We can sense the panic setting it but rest easy fine people of the internet, the delay if proven true will only be by a couple more days and only for the unlucky folks in the UK. The PlayStation Store in the UK is stating that the game will unlock on March 3, 2017, the original UK release date before it was pushed forward to March 1. Globally, Horizon: Zero Dawn is slated for a Feb 28 release in North America and a March 1 release for Australia and Europe. There’s obviously a chance that this could be a mistake but we’ve yet to hear anything back on it. Originally scheduled to release in 2016, Horizon: Zero Dawn was pushed back by Guerilla Games because they wanted to make sure they were delivering the best game possible. The extra time was what they ‘required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision’ which sounds like a mighty fine reason to us. One of the most anticipated games for PS4 this year we’re ok with waiting if it means we get a super polished game. Keep it locked to COGconnected for more on Horizon: Zero Dawn as we…

Hideo Kojima Shows Off Crazy Cool Horizon: Zero Dawn LEGO Set

Horizon: Zero Dawn LEGO + Hideo Kojima = Amazing LEGO is awesome. A simple statement that literally no one would ever argue. It’s the world’s number one toy for a reason (because awesome, remember?) and someway, somehow it just got even better. In a series of tweets yesterday, the legendary mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Hideo Kojima himself showed off his very own Horizon: Zero Dawn LEGO set. Go ahead, be jealous. If you’ve been following along you might know that Kojima’s upcoming title Death Stranding is being built with Guerilla Games’ Decima Engine so perhaps extending that partnership to include a killer LEGO set was just the next natural step in their relationship. Whatever the reason, it sure is cool to see one of Zero Dawn‘s Tallnecks come to life. The first tweet showed only pieces of the set which left followers wondering what the end result could be. pic.twitter.com/uJ4ZEErht9 — 小島秀夫 (@Kojima_Hideo) January 7, 2017 This was followed by the final, put together product of course and it’s nothing short of amazing.

Now Loading…Staff Most Anticipated Games of 2017

Oh sure, we had a Most Anticipated Game Award as part of our Game of the Year Award extravaganza, but what games are we each, personally, most excited for in 2017? For the record, the term “games” does include non-PlayStation titles, whereas our GOTY awards piece was centered around games that are coming out on PlayStation platforms. Considering we’re called PlayStation LifeStyle, that makes sense, no? 2017 is going to have a stellar line-up if nothing is pushed into 2018 or later. It was hard to vote for just one thing like we had to with the awards. Not to mention, some of our most anticipated titles didn’t even make the top 10 list for voting. Without further delay, here are the staff’s individual most anticipated games of 2017. Are you looking forward to any non-PlayStation titles in 2017? Sound off on what you’re the most excited about below! Now Loading is a recurring staff-driven feature where PlayStation LifeStyle discusses anything video game-related under the sun (yes, even non-Sony platforms).

Horizon Zero Dawn

New PS4 Video Showcases Amazing Exclusives Coming in 2017; Horizon: Zero Dawn, Detroit and More

New PS4 Video Seems to Really Stick It to Xbox A couple of days ago, we told you how in Japan, there was a lot of love being given to Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s 3DS over the Christmas holiday. In fact there was so much love that the PS4 had it’s strongest Christmas week to date. While the 3DS did not set a new Christmas sales record, the sales topped those of last year as well. It was a very Merry Christmas indeed for Japan. Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released a new trailer for its PS4 family of consoles, and included a ton of games that will be launched as exclusive or console exclusive in 2017. No question, it is going to be an amazing year for Sony, again. In the trailer, which you can see below, we get to see games like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Detroit: Become Human, Gravity Rush 2, Gran Turismo Sport, NieR: Automata, Farpoint, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, New Everybody’s Golf, Dreams, Pyre, NiOh, Persona 5 and many more. Impressive list, right? Interestingly enough, this appears to confirm Detroit: Become Human will be a 2017 title, and incidentally, the “PS4 exclusive” and “PS4
