Horizon Zero Dawn has Gameplay Elements from The Elder Scrolls & Assassin’s Creed

Horizon Zero Dawn

Upcoming open-world RPG Horizon Zero Dawn will have its own unique gameplay style, in-addition to elements from popular titles such as Assassin’s Creed and The Elder Scrolls.

“I guess you’re wondering where we are on that spectrum of, on the one side more action-orientated games like Assassin’s Creed, and on the other hand you have your Elder Scrolls and these kinds of series,” said Horizon Zero Dawn’s managing director Hermen Hulst. “I think we’re in-between. We have elements in both directions, and that probably puts us somewhere in between.”

Hulst went on to emphasise that “It’s really difficult to talk about how deep the role-playing experience is without being able to show it yet, because people start speculating on it too much. Once we have something to show we’ll talk about it in more detail,” so it looks like we’ll have to wait a while before we find out exactly what he means.

PS4-banner

Most people work to afford video games and systems, but Flordian Christopher Caldwell felt he shouldn’t have to pay to get a shiny new PS4. Instead of buying one legally, attempted to steal it by stuffing it down his pants….. yeah, it didn’t end well for him. This all went down at the Port St Lucie Walmart. And not only did he stuff a PS4 down his pants, he also tried to put accessories too!

The security guard stopped him as he tried to walk out the door, due to the MASSIVE bulge in his pants from a PS4 and various accessories. Mr. Caldwell has been charged with felony grand theft and is being held in jail at the moment. Source: Pixeldynamo

Sony keen on PS4 Remasters in the Future

The Last of Us Remasted

Sony has already released a numbers of remastered PS3 games for PS4, and things don’t be seem to be changing anytime soon. Sony has stated it’s very likely we’ll see more PS3 remastered games on PS4.

“We know that there are lots of PS4 owners that have either never played games before or used to have an Xbox or a Nintendo who have never had the chance to play something like the Uncharted trilogy,” he said. “But it has to be a great game if we’re going to go to the trouble of remastering. I can’t talk specifically, but I think that it’s very likely that there’ll be more.”
