    Horizon: Zero Dawn – RPG Systems of the Impressive PS4 Exclusive Detailed

    Guerrilla Games, the developer behind the unquestionably impressive Horizon Zero Dawn, have explained that they will not be providing any tutorials within the game, but rather encouraging players to study enemy behavior and develop their strategies accordingly.

    Art director Jan-Bart van Beek, in an interview with Videogamer, revealed:
    “a lot of interplay between the different weapons and ammo types, and there is a sort of creative aspect there where you need to find the right way to use weapons for particular robos. And that counts for a lot of the game. We don’t tutorialise the game, we don’t go and tell you how to hunt these robos or how they interact. You really have to go out there and explore these things by trial and error.
    “And it’s the same case for learning about how the robos interact between themselves; who’s protecting who and how they are all interconnected. You’re always a little bit like David Attenborough where he’s sitting in the bushes and studying these creatures trying to learn their behaviour, seeing how you can exploit that behaviour from them.”

    Guerrilla takes the same approach with storytelling:
    “You won’t find us in any interviews explaining what the robos are, why they are there or how they came to be,”





    “This is something for the player to find out themselves. By exploring the world, going to the ruins and learning as much as possible about our game, everything will reveal itself.”
    Van Beek continues to provide some details on Horizon’s RPG systems:
    “There is a skill tree, there are two basic character development systems. First of all you’re getting XP and you can use that XP to gain new perks. So that’s the big one. One of the perks that you saw being used [in the demo] is the Precision Shot where you slow down time and that allows you to [aim] the arrows a little more precisely. Without that it’s actually really hard to hit certain weak spots. [The character in the demo] is already an advanced character about level 12, I think.
    “But there’s also basically a secondary way of upgrading your character, and that is through the harvesting and crafting system. By going into nature and defeating bigger and stronger robos you’ll get better armour-plating, better weaponry and slowly but surely you’ll develop your character in a more naturalistic way.”

    Horizon Zero Dawn – E3 2015 Trailer Breakdown of the Stunning PS4 Exclusive

    Mark Norris Senior Producer from award-winning Guerrilla Games, talks us through the E3 2015 Trailer breakdown blow-by-blow.




    In a lush, vibrant, post-apocalyptic world, colossal mechanized creatures roam a landscape that they have torn from the grip of mankind. Human evolution has, over time, regressed to a tribal hunter-gatherer existence, surviving amongst towering forests, imposing mountain ranges and the atmospheric ruins of a bygone civilisation – while the savage machines have become all-powerful.
    Players take control of Aloy, a skilled hunter who relies on speed, cunning and agility to stay alive and protect her tribe against the strength, size and raw power of the machines.

    Horizon: Zero Dawn – Combat, World & RPG Systems Explained By Guerilla

    Gamesradar got a chance to talk to studio art director Jan Bart Van Beek and lead producer Lambert Wolterbeek Muller, about their studio’s upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn.

    Below is a list of the information they learned exactly as detailed by gameradar’s Leon Hurley, who conducted the interview:

    • It’s a full open world with no loading between areas. “The whole world is explorable. Every mountaintop is accessible, every river you can go through, every valley, and this is basically one of many valleys”, says Jan.
    • It’s a post-apocalyptic game but “a thousand years beyond modern civilisation’s collapse”.
    • One of the weapons, a rope caster which can be used to tie down robosaurs, can also be used to lay explosive tripwire traps.
    • Combat is tactical, benefiting players who prepare by surveying the environment, laying traps and learning the robots’ weak points.
    • Fighting styles roughly break down into three types: “There’s one that’s very much focused on stealth, one that’s focused on firepower, one that’s focused on setting traps and hunting. So there are ways where you get to customise your character and tune her more towards your play style, or develop them all to make her more into a Jack of all trades,” says Jan.
    • Combat is focused on the bow. “They have a limited understanding of the technology,” says Jan, “enough that they can make explosive arrows from the shells that the machines use but they don’t have enough knowledge to reverse engineer any of this.
    • Jan says that, “the XP system is mostly tied to the perk system, so you can develop and focus your character”. Much of the RPG side is “focused on the more natural progression of harvesting stuff from robots, materials, learning how to craft new weapons, new armour, new weapons types, new ammo types. That’s really where the core of the character progression system is”.
    • The perk system lets you develop these fighting styles with specific abilities like stealth kills or the time-slowing precision aiming mode.
    • There’s a “full climbing and traversal system” says Jan, “you can climb up mountains, climb into trees, swim through rivers”. Useful if you want to flee the robots instead of fight.
    • The game will have some sort of online component according to Jan. “The core of the game is a single player experience, but there are certain social features in there”.
    • Hunting isn’t the only option with robots, although “the other interactions you can have [is] something we’re not going into yet”. When asked directly if you could get on a large plate-headed robot’s head, Jan answered, “that is something you will see later”

    Horizon: Zero Dawn’s 3D Model Looks Incredible in these Images from Siggraph 2015

    Horizon: Zero Dawn is certainly one of the most visually impressive titles on current gen consoles, and with an exclusive development environment on the PlayStation 4, the team at Guerilla Games, have the focus to take full advantage of the hardware. Horizon was featured at Siggraph 2015 during the Advances in Real-Time Rendering in Games course, in which Guerrilla Games Principal FX Artist Andrew Schneider hosted a session named “The Real-time Volumetric Cloudscapes of Horizon: Zero Dawn”
    Siggraph’s website, made available an image showing the game’s sky in four different conditions.

    The description from the panel reads:
    Real-time volumetric clouds in games usually pay for fast performance with a reduction in quality. The most successful approaches are limited to low altitude fluffy and translucent stratus-type clouds. For Horizon: Zero Dawn, Guerrilla need a solution that can fill a sky with evolving and realistic results that closely match highly detailed reference images which represent high altitude cirrus clouds and all of the major low level cloud types, including thick billowy cumulus clouds. These clouds need to light correctly according to the time of day and other cloud-specific lighting effects. Additionally, we are targeting GPU performance of 2ms. Our solution is a volumetric cloud shader which handles the aspects of modeling, animation and lighting logically without sacrificing quality or draw time. Special emphasis will be placed on our solutions for direct-ability of cloud shapes and formations as well as on our lighting model and optimizations.
    Guerilla has also made available a PDF Guide, showcasing some images the incredible 3D model of Horizon’s protagonist, Alloy, which can be viewed in the gallery below:

    Horizon Zero Dawn Dev: It’s Frustrating To Still Have To Validate Female Main Characters


    Horizon Zero Dawn’s Executive Producer Mark Norris had an interesting chat with the Latin American version of IGN.
    Among various topics, the Guerrilla Games developer spoke about the increasingly hot debate surrounding the rareness of female main characters in video games. Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy was never in question, apparently.
    Interestingly, in the consciousness of video games there has been the subject of the female main character since a year, a year and a half ago. When we put the concept of Horizon in 2011, when we began to think of ideas, there were three things that did not change on Horizon: Aloy as our main character, these fantastic machines and this juxtaposition of post-post-apocalyptic world. So she was never in question. In fact, it is frustrating that being the 2015 still has to validate an option on a female main character and then people use it to ask how they decided that option? For us, it never was, never asked if we should choose a man or a woman, it was always Aloy. From the moment we think of the game, from the beginning we had these three elements and there was always Aloy. She’s fantastic, I think she has a great story and we are excited about it.
    Advertisements

    Truth to be told, there’s an increasing number of games using female main characters now. Other than Tomb Raider, Mirrors’ Edge and Life is Strange also stand out; others, like Assassin’s Creed Syndicate last year and Dishonored 2 this year, either give you the option to choose (the latter) or allow you to play both a female and a male character (the former).
    Aloy, the main character of the game (which made it into the list of our Most Anticipated 2016 RPGs), is already enough popular to have compelled Guerrilla Games to publish a cosplay guide many months before the release.
    A skilled hunter, she will have to do everything in her power to protect her tribe in the harsh world of Horizon Zero Dawn, a PlayStation 4 exclusive set for release some time in 2016. Stay tuned for our ongoing coverage of Guerrilla Games’ new IP.

    Acho que depende do estilo de jogo. Não sou contra females como personagem principal, mas não estou a ver uma Lara Croft no lugar dum Marcus Fenix, ou uma Jill Valentine no lugar de um Prophet, da mesma forma que não vejo um Leon Kennedy a substituir a Bayoneta. Há jogos em que conseguimos achar credivel o male ou o female (Mass Efect, Mortal Kombat, Oblivion, Skyrim, Street Fighter), mas normalmemte, penso que cada personagem é estudada ao pormenor para dar vida a determinado jogo. E se não é, devia de ser!

    Horizon Zero Dawn is story-driven, doesn't need multiplayer

    The devs at Guerrilla Games have recently explained why Horizon Zero Dawn just doesn't have room for multiplayer, as it's a story-driven RPG akin to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.





    In a recent interview with IGN Latino America, Horizon Zero Dawn's executive producer Mark Norris iterated that the game wants to build a strong connection to players, and multiplayer will just get in the way. "There are questions as to why a multiplayer will not do. The reality is that we are putting together a new IP. We are making a new franchise for the first time in 10 years and what we really want to do is improve the experience for the player. When you get to face these machines as Eloy, with this great character, who is the real star of the story and everything that happens, have this connection with her. But what happens when you take the elements of multiplayer? You play as a supporting character? How does that work?."

    In the current age of gaming, it feels like multiplayer components are thrown in on a whim as a means to keep gamers buying new DLC and season pass content. Mega publishers always want to tap the rich vein that is paid add-ons, and often a game's base singleplayer game type suffers as a result.

    The most recent example that comes to mind is Halo 5, whose campaign was awkward and rather ill-conceived, but Halo 5 continues to sell copies thanks to its strong multiplayer. When multiplayer is added into an RPG, however, the game mode seems to suck away a developer's precious time and effort like a parasite, thus leading to watered-down stories that can ultimately break the immersion.

    Norris went on to cite CD Projekt RED's game of the year magnum opus, The Witcher 3, as an example. "It is an action RPG with a single player experience. I think we're similar in that way, we want this to be the story of Eloy. Although a multiplayer mode is great and maybe we can think of something for the future, but we want Horizon Zero Dawn's story to be on Eloy, and it's going to be fantastic when you play with it."

    It's great to see that Guerilla Games is on the right track with their PS4-exclusive action RPG. The team understands that some genres don't benefit from multiplayer--hell I'm still amazed that extensive story-driven experiences like The Last of Us have multiplayer modes--and it'll be interesting to see how the game takes shape in the coming months. Now if only 343 Industries and EA would take a hint...

    Horizon Zero Dawn Producer Explains Absence Of MP; Similar To The Witcher 3

    Horizon Zero Dawn from Dutch developer Guerrilla Games, will not include a multiplayer mode. In a recent interview, executive producer Mark Norris explains why, and draws a comparison with The Witcher 3.

    When Horizon Zero Dawn for the PS4 was announced, it became clear that the action-RPG will only feature a single-player mode. With the current install base of Playstation Network users, some might wonder if focussing on a single player title, is the right decision. According to executive producer Mark Norris though, “there are questions as to why a multiplayer will not do”.
    “The reality is that we are putting together a new IP. We are making a new franchise for the first time in 10 years and what we really want to do is improve the experience for a player. When you get to face these machines as Eloy, with this great character, who is the real star of the story”, Norris told IGN Latino America (roughly translated)

    Horizon Zero Dawn To Focus On Eloy

    Clearly, Guerrilla wants Horizon to focus on Eloy and the story around her. In that regard, playing as a support character in a multiplayer mode, isn’t what the game is about.
    But what happens when you take the elements of multiplayer, you play as Eloy? You play as a supporting character? How does that work?
    The executive producer even drew a comparison with singleplayer game, The Witcher 3, which is considered to be one the best games of 2015. According Norris, Guerrilla really liked the iconic Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3, which doesn’t include a multiplayer mode either.
    “It is an action RPG with a single player experience. I think we’re similar in that way, we want this to be the story of Eloy. Although a multiplayer mode is great and maybe we can think of something for the future, but we want Horizon Zero Dawn’s story to be on Eloy and it’s going to be fantastic when you play with it”, Norris said.
    Horizon Zero Dawn is scheduled for a Holiday 2016 release, exclusively for the PS4.

    Hideo Kojima Visiting Horizon Zero Dawn Dev Guerrilla Games

    Hideo Kojima is visiting Horizon Zero Dawn developer Guerrilla Games in Amsterdam. Kojima took to Twitter to tease some images from his visit.

    Kojima and Sony’s PS4 lead architect, Mark Cenry, are currently on a 10-day technology tour looking for “high-tech”. The reason for this technology tour has yet to be revealed.
    Since last week, Kojima has tweeted about his journey with Cenry as well. According Kojima, he’s seeking out the “newest technology”.

    Kojima and his new studio, Kojima Productions, might well be looking for new tech for a new game engine. The FOX engine that Kojima developed while at Konami, remains property of the Japanese publisher.

    Arrived in GUERRILLA.






    illa Games @Guerrilla Wonder what his next stop will be....? https://twitter.com/Kojima_Hideo/status/691934864342413315 …










    Kojima announced his new ‘agile’ studio last month. Following the announcement, the designer stated that he “want’s to create something that people expect, but feels new as the same time”.
    With his studio, Kojima will be accompanied by former Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders artist, Yoji Shinkawa, and producer Kenichiro Imaizumi.
    Shinkawa added that he wants create characters that are more recognizable and more beloved.
    We’ve been working on a franchise that is beloved and has recognizable characters. One of my big goals is, visually, with whatever characters we create, to go beyond that, to be more recognizable, more beloved. That’s definitely one of the goals I have when it comes to the art side.
    Kojima Productions is currently working hard on a PS4 console exclusive, and judging from various job opportunities at the studio, Kojima’s upcoming title might well be some a SCI-FI title set in a military setting, and will include RPG elements, and possibly a crowd AI system. The game might also involve some kind of mecha and vehicles, but also monsters are a possibility. It is safe to say that the title will feature some sort of an online/multiplayer mode as well.

    Horizon Zero Dawn Render Shows Amazing Structural Detail

    A Horizon Zero Dawn art render has emerged from a GDC presentation organized by Guerrilla Games’ junior art director, and the render shows an amazing amount of structural detail.

    The Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2016 was held last month, but little by little, more presentations from the gaming event surface. During the event, Horizon Zero Dawn developer Guerrilla Games, organized an art direction bootcamp presented by the studio’s junior art director, Maarten van der Gaag.
    Guerrilla outsources assets on a very large scale and as a result has a very small internal asset art team, but a relatively large concept art team. This scope of outsourcing requires a very mature outsourcing pipeline and comes with its unique advantages and problems.

    This talk will give a detailed insight into the asset art pipeline at Guerrilla Games, why Guerrilla Games chooses to take this approach and discusses its advantages and disadvantages. Furthermore it offers insights in the process of creating the highly detailed briefs that are required for Guerrilla’s approach. And explains how Guerrilla guards the quality in the creation of nearly all of its game-assets using outsourcing vendors.
    Horizon Zero Dawn features highly detailed art-assets

    While the presentation itself details how Guerrilla creates high quality art assets for their titles, one of the slides provides an insight into the amazing amount of structural detail within Horizon Zero Dawn. Check out the render down below. To prove the render is from the upcoming Horizon Zero Dawn, we’ve included a shot of the render’s file details as well.












    As can be seen, the render showcases one of the roof models within the game. Judging from the basefile name, this particular model is used by Aloy’s clan – the Nora clan. A healthy amount of components is being used to render the model, and Guerrilla seems to have used various reference models for their in-game render. Especially the ‘edges’ and ‘rope texture’ references are quite amazing. The bottom view of the roof render shows that the wood has been ‘cut out’ in the top beam, and adds to the detail of this particular art-asset.
    Horizon Zero Dawn is scheduled for a release exclusively for the Playstation 4 somewhere this year.
