Sony Interactive Entertainment recently announced that the global sales of Horizon Zero Dawn has exceeded 2.6 million units during its two weeks of launch. As many of you devout PlayStation 4 users know, Horizon Zero Dawn, which was developed by Guerrilla Games as a PS4 exclusive, was released globally beginning February 28 to widespread critical acclaim. Praised for its unique world design, wide array of strategic gameplay action and fascinating story narrative, it instantly became one of the most celebrated games of the current generation. The impressive launch also makes Horizon Zero Dawn the best-selling new first party IP launch on the PS4 system to date and Guerrilla’s biggest debut ever.
If you have yet the experience Horizon Zero Dawn, the game is truly an exhilarating new action role playing game where you play as Aloy, a young hunter on a quest to discover her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past. The game is set in a lush, post-post-apocalyptic world where machines roam the land and mankind is no longer the dominant species.
“We knew Horizon Zero Dawn was going to be something special, so to see the incredible critical reaction to a brand new game world translate into this level of sales is really gratifying,” said Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios. “Guerrilla has created a game that is nothing short of exceptional, and the reaction we have seen from fans – from hours and hours of gameplay streaming to endless photo sharing – shows just how impactful it has been.”
