by Mike Guarino


Horizon: Zero Dawn has gotten rave reviews since the embargo lifted last week, and now this week consumers will finally be able to try it out for themselves. For those who don’t want to wait for the game to download on launch day before playing it, the game is now available for preload for those who preordered the game digitally.

The file size of the game has been revealed as 39.486 GB, which was revealed by GearNuke. Preordering the game from the PlayStation Store will get you the Nora Machine-Trapper pack and a dynamic PS4 theme for free. The pack comes with weapon mods that improve your weapons’ stats, as well as crafting resources.

For those of you who may be running low on space with your PS4s, you’ll be happy to know that the game’s day one patch is very small in size. The patch is around 250 MB, with the devs saying that “Horizon Zero dawn will receive a small day zero patch that will build upon PlayStation 4 Pro support, adding a Performance mode which will favor smoother framerates while delivering higher visual fidelity in the 1080p mode. This mode is available for both 4K and 1080p displays.”

We definitely agreed with the praise that the game has been getting, scoring the game 4.5/5 stars in our review of it. We said that it “has been a long time coming, but it is finally here and it does not disappoint at all. Featuring a likeable new protagonist in Aloy alongside a compelling story, the game will keep you invested, whether through the main story or even the countless side quests that add more lore to this intriguing world. Complete with a deep combat system and stunning visuals, Guerrilla Games has already raised the bar for exclusives this year with Horizon: Zero Dawn.”
