Last December, pre-orders for Horizon Zero Dawn started, the much awaited action role-playing game that revolves to a charcter named Aloy (Ey-Loy). Aloy is a hunter and archer who lives in a world overrun by robots, their technological capabilities are nowhere near to the robots as they are only exposed to tribal based equipment.
But with her eager mind and determination, she sets out to discover the dangers that revolves around her. This also includes curious questions that is about her childhood.
Aloy makes use of stones, arrows, spears and many more weapons depending on her capabilties. She will continue to have evolution of weapons as the game progress like improvising of fire arrows from materials.
Controls are intuitive with R1 & R2 for weapons, while L1 and L2 are for weapon exchange. Arrow keys are for shortcuts of health, small items and the other keys are for jumping, sliding or grabbing items. L3 is for walking with option to run, while R3 is used for the special capability of Aloy to detect robotic motion and other things the naked eye can’t see.
Of course, as an RPG game you will have side quests and answer different situations depending on your thinking. This makes the story more interesting and worth playing as the overall experience unpredictable.
We won’t spoil you with the story any further, but our experience with Horizons: Zero Dawn was definitely fun even though I don’t own a PS4. The experience is very similar to the recent Tomb Raider but this one has item crafting for your weapons and ammo. Meaning you better be diligent enough to gather items when needed, especially herbs.
Again, Horizons Zero Dawn will be available this February 28 starting at Php2,499. Limited edition packages are still available but with limited QTY at Php3,499 and Php5,999. Limited edition includes the steelbook case, exclusive ps4 theme, artbook and even a 9″ Aloy statue.
