The Horizon: Zero Dawn launch trailer is totally worth three minutes of your time

You should really take a few minutes out of your day and watch the launch trailer for Horizon: Zero Dawn. It’s totally worth it, in our opinion.

In the video above, you’re given a look at the gorgeous landscapes in Horizon: Zero Dawn, combat situations, and a really cool tribal ritual involving cave art.

It’s a rather cool video, and that’s saying a lot considering there have been so very many released. All you have to do is look at our hub page for the game and see for yourself.

Considering the game has garnered positive reviews from critics, we enjoyed it as well, SuperData might be on to something with its sales prediction: it estimates the action-RPG will sell 4-6 million units by the end of 2017.

A couple of reports from Digital Foundry make note of how phenomenal the game looks on PS4, going so far as saying it’s the best 4K title yet for PS4 Pro. That said, an updated analysis of the game posted today called out a few issues with the quality of water rendering, instances of bad lip sync, and human enemies being rather dense at times. However, Digital Foundry said what works “far outweighs the more localized gripes” of what is wrong with it. Future updates could resolve some of the issues, according to the report.

That’s just something to keep in mind should you decide to pick it up. The game has a seamless world without loading screens, and it’s massive, so if you come across a few hiccups, hopefully it won’t break your immersion.

Those with either a PS4 or PS4 Pro should prepare themselves for a small day-one patch which adds a Performance Mode for smoother framerates, and higher visual fidelity for both 4K and 1080p displays.

Horizon: Zero Dawn releases next week on February 28 in North America and March 1 in Europe.
