Horizon Zero Dawn, an exhilarating new action role playing game exclusively for the PlayStation 4 system, developed by the award winning Guerrilla Games, creators of PlayStation’s venerated Killzone franchise. As Horizon Zero Dawn’s main protagonist Aloy, a skilled hunter, explore a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanized creatures
Earth is ours no more
Explore a vibrant world rich with the beauty of nature – but inhabited by awe-inspiring, highly advanced machines. As a young machine hunter named Aloy, you must unravel the mysteries of this world and discover your own destiny.
A distant future
The next era of mankind
In a lush, post-apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of a forgotten civilisation, pockets of humanity live on in primitive hunter-gatherer tribes. Their dominion over the new wilderness has been usurped by the Machines – fearsome mechanical creatures of unknown origin.
A new PlayStation icon
Play as Aloy, a young hunter on a quest to discover her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past. Shunned by her own tribe since birth, Aloy has learned to harness her agility, cunning, and deadly aim to hunt the Machines, defend against rival tribes, and survive in the unforgiving wilds.
Shunned by her tribe since birth, Aloy has never known a mother’s embrace or the acceptance of a community. Her only companion was Rost, the stern, impassive recluse who fostered her.
Rost taught Aloy to survive any physical hardship and to scorn comforts as weakness – but he couldn’t provide the answer to the questions which troubled her above all else: who her parents were, and why she was cast out.
Now, on the brink of adulthood, those answers may finally be within her grasp. But to unravel the secrets surrounding Aloy, she must leave her training behind and venture into the wider world, where unknown tribes rule and new threats rise.
Aloy will have to dig deep to survive, drawing on her sharp insight, keen intelligence, inventive crafting, and above all, her skill with bow and spear against powerful Machines and deadly warriors.
These abilities, combined with her relentless drive to uncover the truth, propels Aloy from the personal riddle of her origins into a wilderness of wider mysteries: How did the Machines come to be? What became of the Old Ones? Could the catastrophe that turned their cities to graves again come to pass?
As Aloy rises from outcast to legendary Machine hunter, she will discover that her own identity cuts right to the heart of these forbidden questions…
A Lost History
Mysteries of the Old Ones
Journey through a world filled with strange artefacts and crumbling ruins to unlock its deepest mysteries. How did the Machines come to dominate this world, and what happened to the civilisation that came before? The answers may determine Aloy’s fate – and that of humanity itself.
Against overwhelming odds
Engage in a deep, rewarding role-playing experience that involves highly varied tactical combat. Fuse primitive gear with advanced technology to craft devices that turn predators to prey. Develop unique strategies to take down different Machines, and hack trapped specimens to do your bidding.
