Easily considered the biggest new license launched by PlayStation this generation with more than 10 million copies sold, Horizon Zero Dawn would not only be the subject of an already obvious sequel for everyone but a trilogy validated by the management of Sony Interactive Entertainment after the critical and commercial success of the first episode released in March 2017. According to information from VGC , the second chapter of Horizon Zero Dawn was originally planned for PlayStation 4, but will ultimately be developed especially for the next PlayStation.
If it is not very surprising to read in this same report that Guerrilla Games is developing a "gigantic" suite with a world much larger than that of its predecessor, the evocation of a playable adventure in cooperation is a little more out of the ordinary. According to sources familiar with the matter, there seems to be a clear question of a cooperative game feature in the sequel to Aloy's adventures, although it cannot be confirmed at this stage whether it concerns the main adventure or a separate play mode.
Guerrilla Games dreamed of cooperation from the start
What is certain is that the first conceptual illustrations of Horizon Zero Dawn, which burst onto the net even before the game was announced, were already showing scenes where several characters jointly attacked the mechanical dinosaurs of the world portrayed by Guerrilla Games, whose founder Hermen Hulst has meanwhile become director of SIE Worldwide Studios. The long documentary carried out by Noclip on the development of the project also explained that cooperation was part of the ambitions of developers from the first Horizon Zero Dawn, but such a feature would have meant halving the amount of detail available in the game.
While waiting to see what form could take the cooperation in the next action-RPG of Guerrilla Games, remember that Horizon Zero Dawn The first of the name was announced on Steam for a theoretically planned release this summer, although PlayStation and Guerrilla Games have not really communicated on the subject since last month. For its part, Titan Comics is preparing a BD Horizon Zero Dawn which is due to debut on July 22, 2020 but whose prologue will be available for free from May 2 as part of the Free Comic Book Day 2020.
