One of the standout elements of Guerrilla Games’ soon-to-be-released PS4 Exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn is its giant mechanical beasts; large daunting robotic monsters that freely roam the game’s open world. Today, Sony released 2 new videos showcasing 2 of those robots – Thunderjaw and Snapmaw.
“An acquisition-class machine, the Snapmaw is frequently found basking in or near bodies of water, where it gathers valuable minerals from the sediment. It can move with surprising ferocity when alerted, lashing out with an array of melee attacks that include powerful lunge bites and tail swipes. For ranged attacks, it fires off cryo mortars that freeze the target on impact.”
“The combat-class Thunderjaw is one of the deadliest machines encountered in Horizon Zero Dawn. A formidable beast equipped with cannons, disc launchers and a mouth laser, its powerful ranged attacks will quickly cut down any hunter foolish enough to alert it. Space permitting, it can also unleash with a devastating range of melee attacks such as charges and tail swipes.”
An action game with RPG elements, Horizon Zero Dawn represents a different direction for Guerrilla Games’ who is best known for its first-person series Killzone.
Horizon Zero Dawn is scheduled to release in North America on February 28th and in Europe three days later on March 1st on PS4.
