A new documentary from VPRO Backlight has released and it is solely focused on Guerilla Games latest title, Horizon: Zero Dawn.
The documentary comes in at a whopping 47-minute runtime. However, the documentary does go into a lot of detail about the process of making such a big game such as Horizon: Zero Dawn. If you have the time and want to learn more about the game, watch the video down below:
VPRO Backlight got the unique opportunity to follow the team of Guerrilla Games, behind the scene, during the final sprint before the release. With a multi-million Euros budget, 240 people have worked on a new PlayStation world for 5 years in Amsterdam.
Check out some of the highlights of the documentary down below:
- Horizon Zero Dawn is an “open world game” and gives the players the possibility to explore very detailed futuristic worlds from the perspective of a redhead girl called Aloy.
- The character Aloy was created by using the face of a Dutch actress, the voice of an American woman, and the body of a British acrobat. The motion capture that took place in Oxford to give her life is amazing to watch, especially for the Horizon Zero Dawn fan, but not only.
- Guerrilla Games is the only Dutch game company making AAA games that broke through internationally with the Killzone series. In 2005 the company was bought by Japan’s Sony. With Horizon Zero Dawn and the new game engine Decima, the company has laid the foundation for a new series of “open world games.”
Horizon: Zero Dawn is now available to purchase on the PlayStation 4.
