Horizon Zero Dawn’s setting is one that juxtaposes humanity’s technical prowess with its downfall and return to hunter gatherer societies. It is a trope that has been explored a few times before but Guerrilla’s title appears to be trying to really flesh out exactly how such a society would work. In the world that has been created machine animals roam the land while humans hunt them, but there had to be a point where the machines evolved to become the dominant species.
In a new video the team of Guerilla explain some background to the creatures, and look at their evolutions. They also show off the Snapmaw, which is a crocodile like machine that lives in packs.
