Timelapse Video Of Horizon: Zero Dawn's Beautiful Graphics Videos  Horizon: Zero Dawn

A new video has been uploaded online looking at the impressive graphics engine that powers Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Guerrilla Games showed the new video of real-time volumetric clouds. Not only does it show realistic cloud formations, but also a timelapse of the day too.

Horizon: Zero Dawn will have a day/night cycle and this new video shows a little bit on how that will look like in the actual game. The lighting effects truly look stunning and the beautiful mountaintop setting makes everything look prettier.

This new game from Guerrilla in an entirely new IP from the same studio that made the Killzone series famous. Unlike Killzone, this is an open-world third person action game starring a tough female warrior.

It’s also interesting that Horizon: Zero Dawn won’t allow you to have guns. Guerrilla Games wanted players to feel more threatened by the robotic dinosaurs so only weapons like bows and arrows, spears and more will be used by the player.

Horizon: Dawn is a PS4 exclusive set to be released in 2016. The game won many E3 2015 awards due to its impressive trailer that showed actual gameplay footage. Many people are impressed by how the game is looking so far.

    Maybe they should stop showing them on PC and show them on actual hardware for a change.

    One of the many great surprises from e3 including ghost recon wildlands! 2016 is the year of the 3rd person action games!

  • Fozymandias

    Looks amazing. It’s awesome to see an exclusive that’s actually impressive and of course it’s only on PS4. Love it.

        Sorry poor xBox fanboy we’re not talking about the Xbox Ones poor performance so move along and go play with your revolutionary Kinect lmao

        • freekface

          • Fozymandias

            Lol no I meant like the Xbox Ones revolutionary dependency on a cloud to boost it’s shitty performance. What you mean no destructable environments without the cloud? No 1080p 60 fps WITHOUT the cloud? Lmao yup that’s the reality you live with.

          • freekface

          • Fozymandias

            Battlefield 4, COD: AW, COD: Ghosts, Diablo 3, MGSV GZ, Metro 2033, Metro Last Light, Wolfenstein TNO, Outlast, Shadow Warrior, Sniper Elite 3, The Last of Us Remastered, Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Trials Fusion, Trine 2, Warframe, War Thunder. All run at 1080p 60 FPS on PS4 now sit down and STFU!

          • freekface

          • Fozymandias

            Yeah the Xbox One is sooo impressive it can run ONE game at 60 fps lmao way to show Sony pal. By the way all you fanboys keep talking about are how great Xbox Ones backwards compatibility is and how great games like Halo MCC and Gears are, guess what those are genius? F****n LAST GEN!

          • Fozymandias

            And genius you really need to do your homework, Crackdown 3 uses a cloud to boost the performance because the X1 can’t achieve that level of power and stability on it’s own. Nice try though.

            Not even close to true. It uses cloud for destructive environments. They require mass CPU and memory both of which xbox has more available in the console than PS4. PS4 has better GPU because of the DDR5. Xbox has a faster CPU with more available cores and Ram. Which equates to better physics. But worse graphics. That is why racing games do better on Xbox. They are very CPU dependant. True Sims require mass amounts of CPU to calculate the physics. The cloud is required to maintain the constant evolving environment. Call me a fanboy all you want. PS4 is not capable of what is being done in Crackdown 3. You need the dedicated servers. They are going to make a difference as open world evolves. This gen might not see it. But you need to start somewhere.

          • Fozymandias

            It’s funny how you Xbone fanboys always lean on ONE title. That tells a lot. Now you’re saying physics is more important than graphics? Lol sure buddy whatever helps you earn fanboy points

          • ..

            I’m not saying that at all it completely depends on the game. You fanboy can’t admit the PS4s short comings. I know all the facts you can spout what ever crap you want. I went day 1 at 4am to get a PS4. They had a line and only had a limited numbers of consoles for 6am when they opened. Tried to get 1 after work. No dice. Went at midnight to get an Xbox was 3rd in line and got 1. I don’t pre order been burned before depending on it. Anyway I had every intention of getting both consoles. Got an Xbox and haven’t seen the need for a PS4 yet. So yes your opinion is the PS4 is better. I’m happy with what I have. Now go get your boss a coffee. I like it when my employees bring Me one.

          • Fozymandias

            Lmao you couldn’t get a PS4 at launch because everyone was getting them and they sold quickly. You got an Xbone so easily because they were overstocked lmao
            Here’s the thing Steve Goozer, you want me as a PS4 fanboy to admit the PS4s shortcomings then why can’t you as an Xbone fanboy admit the Xbones shortcomings???????

          • ..

            I have. Said multiple times it can’t touch the GPU speed. I’ve even corrected xbox fanboy who say Xbox has more graphical power. I literally come on here to kill time when I’m doing testing and monitoring at work. Fun to get you fanboys all fired up. 90% of this is simply subjective to ones opinion. I find most fanboys blindly defend something they don’t understand because that what they scraped their pennies together to buy. A few hundred dollars on a console is nothing to me. Spend more on hookers and blow in a weekend.

            You seem to have a slight grasp on the actual tech. But that clown Allen literally read the box. Knows nothing. My current job involves testing computers and components. I know my shit.

          • Fozymandias

            I respect you more now that I know you indulge in hookers and blow lmao Steve Goozer you’re an Xbone fanboy but you’re cool in my book

          • ..

            Haha. I might be a tech geek but I know how to have a good time.

          • ..

            My stupid phone keeps auto correcting fanboys to fanboy

          • eekface

            You are completely retarded. Forza isn’t even very good looking, has shit mechanics, no weather and few cars.

            PS4 games push for quality and excellence you could not possibly understand. Xbox just takes a turn and polishes it. You shove that polished turd down your throat and call it gold.

          • freekface

      • Allen

        lol look at who’s being a trolling little douche. PS4 has very solid frame rates and you are just mad because we are going on 2 years of xbone being sub true HD. 720p – lmao last gen resolutions.

        You do realize that nearly every multi platform game not only runs at higher resolutions on PS4 but PS4 has much more stable frame rates.

        The ultimate power of the cloud won’t save you and despite what you may think xbone will never compete with a PC. Xbox will never be #1

        • freekface

          • Allen

            Most games these days on xbone are 900p but 720p was the norm in year 1. PS4 can do 1080p & 60fps but they put more into their games. Forza while pretty is not a very demanding game.

            You and every other idiot xbot are all relying heavily on the ultimate power of the cloud (lol) saving the xbox one. You are desperate to get multiplatform games to run on par with PS4 but I have a feeling that very few titles will ever utilize microsoft’s cloud.

            You do realize that anyone with even a mid range PC doesn’t need an xbox one right? I mean look at Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Project Spark and the many other potential xbox exclusives (again lmao calling them exclusive) can go to PC at any time.

            I mean if you like to have two platforms to just play the same games I guess I get it.

            Mean while PS3 and PS4 have had Vita for a long time and PSTV is even better – stream to any TV within your network and the only cost is a $50 investment.

            Again meanwhile PS4/PC gamers get to enjoy far, far, far more games than Xbone/PC combo. Literally retarded in my opinion. Just the whole reason why Xbox isn’t worth a damn. The value proposition just isn’t there for me.

          • Fozymandias

            If it’s on PC it’s NOT exclusive. Oh but what about console exclusive? Lmao it’s f****n made up. There is no such thing as console exclusive on PS4, only Xbone fanboys need made up terms to help their cause.

        • Fozymandias

          Dude it’s pointless. Xbox fanboys can’t handle truth. They brag about their exclusives despite the fact that once you exclude games also available on PC, the Xbone currently only has 4 exclusives available. They brag about 1080p 60 fps despite the fact only ONE game on Xbone can achieve that level. Keep the delusions alive guys lmao

          • Allen

            I know, you are right. You come off harsh sometimes but I understand, others may not but these xbots are dense sons of bitches that’s for sure. They aren’t all like that.

          • Fozymandias

            They push me to be harsh because I hate false claims with a passion. If these fanboys had anything other than opinions or misinformed info I would give them their due. But they never do.

          • Allen

            I know and I agree.

          • ..

            I agree to. Sony for life. I’m getting it tattoo’d across my lower back. Cause you know my life revolves around my console choice. Got a blue flag hangin from my right side ready to shoot any fool that waves green.

          • Allen

            I agree too.

            FTFY…idiot

          • ..

            I no rite. Sony is all about the gaymer. Playing vids is all about picking a console a it being the best. Every1 else is smoother stupid. Blue flaggin for life

          • Allen

            Son you cracking me up so much. I made this for you lmao

          • Allen

            Here’s Xbox’s lmao suites them well.
