PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn is nearly here, and it is riding quite the hype wave being called the best game on the new PS4 Pro so far - developer Guerrilla Games has released the launch trailer, and details on the upcoming v1.01 and v1.02 patches.

Guerrilla took to the official PlayStation Blog, where they wrote: "It is my pleasure to be able to share the launch trailer for Guerrilla's new title, Horizon Zero Dawn. This is easily our most ambitious project that we have taken on. When we began our journey over five years ago, we wanted to have the creative freedom to imagine something fresh. As soon as we saw the enthusiasm from the team for the concept, and our lead Aloy, we knew we were on the right path".

The developer continued: "The result of our voyage is Horizon Zero Dawn - a game set in a lush post-apocalyptic world, in which Machines are the dominant species and mankind is propelled back to the stone ages. It is a game of exploration, not just of the perilous new world but also of Aloy's identity. On behalf of the entire team at Guerrilla, I hope you'll enjoy accompanying Aloy on her journey as much as we have enjoyed creating it for you".
