Tweeting from Amsterdam, Netherlands in the wee hours of the morning, Danny O’Dwyer revealed the next project for his video game documentary company. NoClip’s next set of videos will focus on Guerrilla Games’ 2017 Game of the Year contender Horizon Zero Dawn.
Sold exclusively for PlayStation 4, the third-person action role-playing video game puts players in the shoes of Aloy, a talented hunter, and archer living in a world overrun by robots. While the action and adventure was certainly the focus, Horizon Zero Dawn has been praised for its sprawling open world and the creatures that fill it.

That may seem like a simple feat during the current climate in the video game industry, with just about every game featuring an open world mechanic, but for Guerrilla Games it was a considerable transition from the Killzone series they are known for. That transition from a linear First Person Shoot to a vast open world, alongside specific things occurring during the development of Horizon, will be the focus for O’Dwyer and NoClip’s upcoming documentary.
Since creating the channel on September 5, 2016, O’Dwyer has done a bevy of different behind the scenes looks into some of the industries most beloved games, most notably Rocket League and Doom. NoClip’s most recent documentary detailed the history of CD Projekt Red, and the trials and tribulations that came with making each different iteration of the beloved series, The Witcher.
Alongside founding NoClip, O’Dwyer has seen his fair share of work in the actual video game industry, working for companies like GameSpot and Kinda Funny. So don’t worry Horizon fans, the game is in good hands with Danny and company.
Currently, there is no exact release date or format structure for the release – aka how many videos NoClip will break the release down into – but O’Dwyer stated that it will be released next month.
