Immediately following the fantastic re-unveiling of Team ICO’s The Last Guardian, Sony kept the bombshells dropping with a new title from Guerrilla Games, the maker of the Killzone franchise. Titled Horizon Zero Dawn, the game seems to feature a mix between futuristic monsters and prehistoric, tribal humans. After an impressive CG trailer, the presentation switched to a gorgeous real-time demo, where a red-haired female took on a robotic dinosaur with a bow and arrow, followed by a bayonet finisher.
The game bears a striking resemblance to the recent Tomb Raider title, with a female protagonist and a signature bow. Also of note, the game’s embrace of futuristic and prehistoric elements calls to mind the new Wii U Legend of Zelda title (which just so happens will be skipping E3 this year). Hopefully, Horizon Zero Dawn will fill a needed gap in Sony’s lineup, considering Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s timed exclusivity on Xbox One and Zelda being the Wii U’s flagship title of 2016.
