Gorgeous Horizon Zero Dawn PS4 Screens

Horizon

One of the best surprises from Sony’s press conferences was a title called Horizon Zero Dawn. Horizon Zero Dawn looks to take the 3rd person action genre in new directions introducing a female protagonist complete with giant robot “dinosaurs”. It was amazing to see in action and we have high hopes for this one when it’s inevitably released.

Check out the gorgeous screens for this newly announced title and let us know what you think about this PS4 exclusive. Sony really brought it this year and it was outstanding to see.

8 GLORIOUS MINUTES OF RATCHET AND CLANK ON PS4

Here is 8 glorious minutes of Ratchet and Clank running on the PS4. The game looks remarkable and I was really hoping for a late 2015 release time frame. Watching this gameplay makes me filled with joy as I adore this series. If Ratchet and Clank already looks this impressive, we can’t imagine what the final product will look come next year.

Be sure to watch the video and bump the resolution up to 1080p. Enjoy.
