According to sources at MP1ST, 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn will join Sony’s world of remakes, with a remastered version of the game in the pipeline for PS5 and PC.
It’s currently unclear whether it will be a remaster or a “ground up” rebuild (we expect the latter). However, we can expect accessibility features, graphics mode improvements, and general gameplay quality of life enhancements.
The news aligns with Sony’s recent announcement of an upcoming Horizon adaptation on Netflix, which has the potential to reignite interest in the game, drawing in new fans and followers to the franchise.
The remaster may be ideal for newcomers to discover the enchanting world of Horizon, but it’s a bit of a letdown for existing owners. With only five years since its original release, it will be hard to justify the price point.
If that didn’t tickle your fancy, never fear! There is promising news if you’re looking for something to get excited about in the series outside the upcoming VR game and DLC.
Guerilla Games is not only reworking the Horizon game for PS5 and PC but is reportedly hard at work on a multiplayer version. In 2020, Guerilla posted a job listing seeking a game programmer with multiplayer experience to help develop an “epic open world game.”.
Release dates for both projects are a mystery, but we’ll keep you updated as we find out more!
