Guerrilla: Horizon Is Between Elder Scrolls And Assassin's Creed

Developer Guerrilla Games has made it plain in the past: Horizon: Zero Dawn is a role-playing game.

We think it could end up being one of the best ever, too, but we still don't have too many specific details.

On that score, GamesRadar asked studio co-founder and managing director Herman Hulst to elaborate on the genre, and here's his response:

"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. I think we're in-between. We have elements in both directions, and that probably puts us somewhere in between."

Hulst didn't go any deeper, though, saying it's "really difficult" to outline the depth and scope of the game in question without being able to show it off. Once they have some more gameplay to present (aside from what we already saw at E3), the team will offer more information.

We're happy with what we know so far about this PlayStation 4 exclusive, so let's stay optimistic.

All it needs now is a soaring and awesome deep story to pull those threads together. GG isn't known for that so maybe Naughty Dog can help them.

I disagree. I was perfectly content with GG story they provided in their FPS.

Yeah GG actually put together some of the more appealing stories especially for the genre of FPS.

The story in Killzone was mediocre even by FPS standards. I'm with World on this one.

I'm sure writing for an rpg would get more effort than an fps,which KZ easily has the better writing than any other fps since fps are not known for good writing.So I will give them the benefit and they have hired key talent from CD Projekt.Gamers really need to stop being too negative and actually give companies some faith.

Halo and Bioshock easily have much, much better stories than Killzone.

Bioshock isn't really an FPS and Halo has had nothing but laughable stories since the third entry.

Bioshock not an FPS?
Ok. Say no more.

In the Bioshock games the primary gameplay mechanic is shooting things with guns from a first person perspective, but it's not a first person shooter because reasons.

Halo 4 had a dumb story because the series went downhill once Bungie left, so that somehow invalidates how well the story worked in Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, ODST and Halo Reach. Because, again, reasons.

All my reasons are always wrong.

Why bother?

I don't know why you bothered with the reply at all. Seems weird to keep engaging me in conversation when all you ever do is whine about how you don't want to talk to me. A cynical man might even think you do it solely so you can whine about it, but thankfully I'm not cynical. I'm a simple country boy, one might even say a cockeyed optimist, and much like Billy Mumphrey it will probably be my unbridled enthusiasm that is my eventual downfall. So I don't think you do it solely so that you can whine about it :)

I think you just see the whining as a bonus :P

Leave you alone? I wasn't even freaking talking to you, and you replied directly to me. I'm not sure how you can start conversations, turn them into arguments, and then complain that other people are not 'leaving you alone'. I mean, it's your site, you can reply to anyone you want, but don't you think it's a little weird to behave this way?

'sigh'

I did not engage you in conversation. I made a statement. It didn't require a smarmy insulting comment from you in return.

Please. Just LEAVE ME ALONE.

So you were just making a statement (that was a direct reply to my comment, disagreeing with it) and then complained that I never agree with you, and that's not engaging someone in conversation... how, exactly?

I don't think this should have to be pointed out, but the best way to get people to 'leave you alone' is not to make comments to them to begin with. It's your site, you can reply to whoever you want, but you probably shouldn't be surprised if they reply back.

You're right, I shouldn't be surprised. You're right about everything.

I need more gameplay video to be convinced, still not sold on this, not to mention GG is making this.

GG are talented and HZD will finally let them show how talented they are.You people should not even play games with how negative you are and all of the complaining that is done.

Talented?
KZ3 and Shadow Fall says otherwise.

KZ2 was amazing but after that they just went downhill.
