Horizon: Zero Dawn

Once in a while, a game studio that’s been known for a certain style or genre of game tries their hand at something completely different. Sometimes, this doesn’t work for them, but on the other hand, there are situations where the game truly shines and is a resounding success. That’s where Guerrilla Games, a studio known for mostly Killzone, a first-person shooter, comes in with their new IP, Horizon: Zero Dawn. There were some people questioning as to whether this studio could create an open-world action role-playing game that stood against the others in its same genre.

The game centers around robot dinosaurs, for All-Mother’s sake! Oh, and there’s those pitiful squishy humans in it, too. Armed with nothing but a bow (OK, maybe a few other weapons), you need to bring these mechanical animals down to hunt for parts and find out the mystery behind them. Come and join us in a world filled with amazement, wonders and a shroud of things unknown.

Aim of the Guide

The aim of the Horizon: Zero Dawn guide is to basically cover 100% of the game, from the main story and side missions, to all of the collectibles and trophies. In addition, we are trying to write a comprehensive strategy guide for all of the machines you encounter in the game, including their attacks, weaknesses and the items they may drop. If you’re looking for the most complete guide, then you need to look no further than here, as we have you covered.
