Gorilla and Titan Comics team up to create a new story set after the game’s end
PlayStation exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn — set to launch on PC for the first time later this year — is getting a comic series based off of its post-post-apocalyptic world. In the collaboration between developer Guerrilla Games and Titan Comics, readers will be able to check in on Aloy’s story after the events of the game. Titan Comics will release Horizon Zero Dawn#1 into comic stores and onto digital devices on July 22. According to the press release, readers would also be able to pick up a prequel comic as part of Free Comic Book Day 2020, May 2. Free Comic Book Day has beenpostponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and so it’s unclear if the prequel comic will still become available on May 2. Polygon has reached out to Titan Comics for clarification.
The new series follows Talanah Khane Padish, an apprentice hunter who played a pivotal role in the game’s Hunter’s Lodge plotline. After Aloy goes missing, Talanah sets out to hunt a new and dangerous species of killer machines, and to discover her own purpose in life. Horizon Zero Dawn’s new comic series is co-created by Horizon Zero Dawn writer Anne Toole and artist Ann Maulina. The first issue also has several variant covers from artists likeStanley “Artgerm” Lau, Loish, Peach Momoko, as well as original art from the game.
Late to the party but just started playing the game during the holidays. I have to say, A 3 year old game still holds really good. Even puts the newly released titles to shame. The Particle effects, motion blur and character models are top notch. The controls feels really responsive. I hope the game is worth it in terms of story.
Horizon Zero Dawn comes to PC on August 7, via both Steam and Epic Games Store
Formerly a PlayStation 4 exclusive, it’s got all the bells and whistles PC fans look for
Guerrilla Games announced Friday that Horizon Zero Dawn will be available for the PC on Aug. 7. Titled Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition, it will be available on both Valve’sSteam storefront and the Epic Games Store for $49.99.
Horizon launched as a PlayStation 4 exclusive in 2017, quickly racking up numerous nods as one of the best games of the year. Polygon included it in the top 10. It tells a unique post-apocalyptic story starring a young woman named Aloy, who must journey across a forbidding landscape and do battle with wild mechanical creatures. The game was a commercial success as well, a rare example of a successful new intellectual property created by a modern AAA development studio.
The PC version of the game comes with a raft of improvements, including dynamic foliage and improved reflections. The final product will include all the bells and whistles that PC players look for, including unlocked framerates, ultra-wide monitor support, and several pages of graphics settings to tinker with. There’s even a proper benchmarking tool.
