Guerrilla Games Has Announced Horizon
After months of keeping quiet, Guerrilla Games has opened up at E3 about their latest new game, named Horizon. To announce the game, Guerrilla Games has released a trailer to go alongside the announcement.
In the trailer, a woman is seen walking through a cave, filled with cave paintings as a narrator tells the story of humanity and it's growth before it's eventual decline. Horizon will be set 1000 years ahead of the present day and will focus on a world where human civilization has collapsed and the world has been overrun by giant robotic creatures.
A while ago, Guerrilla Games talked about their ambitions to create a game with giant killer robot dinosaurs and Horizon is clearly the game they were mentioning. The idea of giant killer robot dinosaurs sounds a little over the top, but Horizon actually seems like it could have a lot of potential, both in the gameplay and the story front.
Horizon will be Guerrilla Game's first attempt at a role playing game - in their past the only experience they've had has been with shooters, specifically the Killzone franchise. It'll certainly be interesting to see how well they can create a game in a completely different genre.
In Horizon, players will be able to use a variety of different methods to kill enemies, but the main concept is that players will be equipped with caveman style weaponry, or in other terms, very basic, uncivilized equipment, and they will be going up against futuristic style robots. Horizon has certainly peaked my interest - I can't wait to hear more about it.
