Horizon Zero Dawn is an action RPG set in a massive futuristic and fantastical open world.
In the game you play as Aloy, a huntress and archer, in a land ruled by giant robot creatures, known as ‘Machines’. The components of these Machines are vital to Aloy’s survival, so she must loot the corpses of dead robots. The robots themselves can be killed in a variety of ways or can be hacked to provide a means of transport.
Various quests lead Aloy across the huge open world, encountering different Machines and presenting new challenges to her and the survival of humanity.
