February has seen some amazing titles, but the month is not done yet as before it ends, PlayStation 4 owners are going to get one amazing exclusive title. Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the most anticipated titles of this year. Players are preparing to face off against giant mechanized creatures, but it seems like Aloy will face more than just robots.
The ESRB rating for Guerrilla Games’ upcoming title reveals more than just the suitable age for the game. The synopsis of the upcoming title states that Aloy will go head-to-head against human enemies in some occasions. This is a big surprise to some as majority of Horizon Zero Dawn’s trailers pits Aloy against robotic creatures only.
“This is an action/role-playing game in which players assume the role of a hunter (Aloy) surviving through a post-apocalyptic world. Players guide Aloy as she learns to hunt robotic creatures and animals in the wild. Aloy uses arrows, spears, and explosive traps to injure and kill machines, boar, and occasional human enemies,” reads the description.
This may have caught players off-guard as the trailers focus on combat against robot creatures only. However, the game’s director Mathijs De Jonge revealed on Twitter last month that humans will also be enemies in the upcoming title. This is a really exciting info as it’s going to be fun to change tactics between fighting human and robot enemies.
humans as well

Many have called Horizon Zero Dawn as Sony’s Monster Hunter for the PlayStation 4. We can definitely see the similarities between the two titles as Aloy employs the use of traps to take out huge enemies. The game also doesn’t reward non-stop attacking as timing and countering is a better way to play.
Adding human enemies to Horizon Zero Dawn would be a step away from its similarities to Monster Hunter, as in Capcom’s title, human enemies are non-existent in any form whatsoever. We’ve yet to see how human to human combat will work out in the game, but we’re expecting varying play styles as compared to robot enemies.
The game will launch on Feb. 28 exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It’s one of the most anticipated titles of 2017. The game has always impressed fans with trailers from E3, Gamescom, and more. Many are hoping that the game will live up to the hype, and things are looking good so far.
