Last week, I travelled to Guerrilla Games in Amsterdam to play over four hours of Horizon: Zero Dawn, which were two main sections of the campaign. They were widely different, with the first session containing the intro cutscene of the game as well as the first three chapters. The second section revealed a lot more of the map and world as a whole, as well as Aloy’s arsenal of weaponry.
ALOY’S FIRST STEPS
This initial section excited me for Aloy as a character. Watching her develop in these initial stages from a baby, to a young child is something that I was pleasantly surprised to see. You’re discovering this world as Aloy grows up and see its for herself.
Although it’s not all show and tell, as it isn’t long before you’re stumbling through caves with Aloy, learning more about the lore of the world and seeing Aloy begin to learn to craft and hunt.
