Pretty sure half of our reader base are “story junkies”, so this news should intrigue quite a few of you.
Horizon: Zero Dawn’s development team has purposely been holding back on talking too much about the game’s story because the developers want players to discover it for themselves, according to Gameinformer’s latest report on the game.
The game’s lead writer, John Gonzalez, is very excited about what the team has in store for gamers when Horizon: Zero Dawn releases early next year. According to the Gameinformer report, there’s a main story for players to follow, along with a large number of different sidequests and other activities for players to take part in if they’re interested in learning even more about the story and lore that’s been built for Horizon.
“For people who are story junkies, for people who like to collect every audio log or text log out there, people who want to have a grand narrative to their game, I think they’re going to be really surprised and delighted by what we have prepared for them,”said Gonzalez.
Time will tell if Guerrilla follows through on providing a story that people actually want to play through in a large open world game. So far though, I personally think the developers have been saying all of the right things in regards to the story in Horizon: Zero Dawn. We have the mysterious protagonist, and an even more mysterious world to explore along with a cast of equally intriguing side characters.
Plus, they aren’t spoiling important story moments through the trailers they’ve released, something movies and games alike need to quit doing altogether.
Horizon: Zero Dawn launches exclusively on the PS4 on February 28, 2017.
