Horizon Zero Dawn Has A Unique Healing System

Horizon Zero Dawn Has A Unique Healing System News  Sony Horizon: Zero Dawn Guerrilla Games

PS4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn, will have a unique healing system that is unlike in most other games.

Horizon Zero Dawn’s game director, Mathijs de Jonge, talked on Twitter recently to describe the game’s unique healing system.

He said “you have to heal yourself” in Horizon Zero Dawn. It won’t have regenerative health like in other games. A fan asked if you regain health with things like medical packs. Jonge said you heal “with things from nature” instead.

It sounds interesting that you have to regain health manually in Horizon Zero Dawn with things from nature. It’s likely you may have to hunt for food or something to regain health if I’m interpreting Jonge’s answer correctly.

Speaking of hunting, Jonge also said via Twitter that there will be different hunting types in Horizon Zero Dawn. Although he’s not willing to share more about this until a later date.

Horizon Zero Dawn is the new game from Guerilla Games and it wowed a lot of people at E3 2015. It’s great to see the developer trying something new as it would have been kind of boring seeing another Killzone game.

Hopefully more from Horizon Zero Dawn will be shared with us later this year. Sadly, the game itself will not be released until 2016.

    Unique? I think they were looking for a different adjective lol The game looks great and interesting but c’mon lots of survival games don’t have auto health regen.

    One of the best games of E3. Very nice game for PS4

    • Allen

      Yeah this and Recore were two of the best looking new IP’s.

      • Tee

        Recore was a CGI trailer but I must admit it has an interesting concept.

        • Allen

          True but I think they will deliver. Great looking concept. I’m glad to see Microsoft not focusing purely on shooters.

  • MrVux007

    nothing will beat the survival system from MGS3 IMO…but its good to see a change of pace in games health system

    The best game shown at Sony’s Conference. Hopefully I will have a PS4 by the time this game comes out.

    Ehhh. So something like Shadow of Mordor where you pick flowers and it automatically heals you?
