Horizon Zero Dawn is a post-apocalyptic adventure set about 1000 years after the collapse of the human civilisation. The only survivors of an initially unspecified catastrophe have joined together into tribes and live similarly to the people of the Stone Age, surrounded by the ruins of the so-called Ancient. The remaining humans, however live in a wild state dominated by robotic creatures, which are futuristic machine beings modelled after wild animals and dinosaurs in a cyberpunk look. Humans and machines have coexisted for a long time, with the machines being hunted by humans for their components and resources. But the robots are becoming a bigger and bigger threat to the tribes. The main character of the game is Aloy, a young archer and hunter who improves her skills as we progress through the adventure. Exiled from the tribe for the rest of her life because of her unknown origins, she sets out in search of answers. The role-playing elements of the game are defined by a mix of the Assassin’s Creed saga and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
