Horizon: Zero Dawn is an open world action-adventure game with role-playing elements thrown into the mix. It was initially announced at E3 2015, during Sony’s press conference, and was originally set to release in 2016. The game actually started early development all the way back in 2011, following the release of Killzone 3, with the Killzone: Shadow Fall team joining in after that game came out. Horizon uses the Decima game engine, also used for Shadow Fall, and was finally released in North America on February 28, 2017, and in other territories a few days later.
