What’s Up PlayStation Nation,
Horizon: Zero Dawn launches on February 28th, 2017 and the release date almost upon us. Guerrilla Games took the time to release videos introducing some of the machines we will encounter within Horizon: Zero Dawn. By the look of things Aloy will have numerous of difficult challenges awaiting her.
The combat-class Thunderjaw is one of the deadliest machines encountered in Horizon Zero Dawn. A formidable beast equipped with cannons, disc launchers and a mouth laser, its powerful ranged attacks will quickly cut down any hunter foolish enough to alert it. Space permitting, it can also unleash with a devastating range of melee attacks such as charges and tail swipes.
An acquisition-class machine, the Snapmaw is frequently found basking in or near bodies of water, where it gathers valuable minerals from the sediment. It can move with surprising ferocity when alerted, lashing out with an array of melee attacks that include powerful lunge bites and tail swipes. For ranged attacks, it fires off cryo mortars that freeze the target on impact.
Soaring through the sky at high altitude, the fearsome Stormbird is a combat-class machine that can swoop down and attack its prey with tremendous force. It is just as dangerous on land as it is in the air, with a variety of swift and powerful attacks that range from wing blasts to claw slashes. Its enormous metal wings are capable of collecting and discharging the electricity in the air.
The Behemoth is a huge, rugged transport-class machine that uses anti-gravity technology to transfer precious cargo from smaller acquisition-class machines into its stomach container. When provoked, it may charge at the enemy or use its anti-gravity unit to hurl heavy objects. It is also equipped with a set of grinding drills that allow it to grind and propel rock projectiles.
In my opinion: Horizon: Zero Dawn is shaping up to be a great game. Guerrilla Games and PlayStation are doing a wonderful job building hype and anticipation on their new venture to the Role Playing Game genre. The level of detail on these machines are jaw-dropping. I’m loving the diversity between the four machines we were introduced to. I’m most definitely up for the challenge and looking forward on taking on some of these ferocious machines. Are you up for the challenge to face them? Which machine is your favorite so far?
