Horizon Zero Dawn is one of those games where the hype train is on track and actually pulled up to the station. In other words, the hype is real.
In Horizon Zero dawn, you play Aloy. A young girl that was banished from her village and deemed an outcast at birth. As part of the villages law, it is not allowed for villagers to even speak to an outcast. As a child, Aloy has no idea why she was deemed an outcast, but the harsh treatment of others, inspires her to train in the wild with her mentor, Rost.
