What is Horizon Zero Dawn about?

A Nora warrior named Aloy, in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic-looking world controlled by machines.

This video game was designed by Guerrilla Games, it is an adventure and action game released by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4 and several years later for Windows.

Its concept received great criticism from specialists, due to its setting, characters, design, story and the excellent work of actress Ahly Burch, offering users a rare and highly successful video game.

Why is your story so striking?

We must start with its setting unlike other video games, it is inspired by a world after the apocalypse full of nature, mountains, rural areas and very green forests, apart from having climatic changes, night and day.

Aloy is the main character in this story, an excellent hunter and archer who belongs to the Nora tribe and is controlled by the players.

He has great skills in combat, with a bow, stun explosives and a rope throwing weapon, which can immobilize any machine, eventually knocking them down.

But these machines are not just to shoot them down, Aloy uses them as resources to make ammunition, slings, bows, traps and much more.

What role does the player play in the story? Each user must complete secondary missions such as rescuing people, searching for objects, solving and investigating problems, and eliminating enemies.

By passing the different tests and levels of Horizon Zero Dawn, players gain more experience by being able to obtain more skills necessary to go unnoticed, be able to ambush enemies, move water, control and sabotage machines, among others.

These abilities can be classified as follows: Marauders increase the user's stealth levels, Valiente possesses combat techniques and finally the gatherer with gathering and healing characteristics.

On the other hand, Aloy contains a device called Focus, ideal for scanning and observing the details of each resource and enemy, being able to obtain information, evidence or follow clues as needed, as well as talk with other characters.
