Horizon Zero Dawn is Guerilla Game's first role-playing game (RPG) after its successful first-person shooter (FPS) series, Killzone. The game features the combination of prehistoric and advanced technology elements with a focus on survival gameplay.
Speculations about the game's delay is centered around the arrival of PS4.5 or PS Neo this September. PS Neo will supposedly have better capabilities than the current PS4 console, upgrading the current gen in terms of GPU, memory and adding 4K support.
