We are incredibly grateful that Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds have been received so positively by so many gamers and it is a testament to the fantastic work of the entire team at Guerrilla. The combination of beautiful story-telling and great characters, with excellent gameplay mechanics, has resonated well with fans and led to this exceptional sales milestone.

We had huge ambition for the game and as we approached the launch we knew people were excited, but to see sales of this volume is truly mind blowing. Since launch, millions of players have joined Aloy on a quest to discover the secrets of the old ones. We hope they enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Pokdepinion: As I mentioned before, I was skeptical about the game at first but once I started playing it, it was hard to stop. If you have not played it before and you’re into role-playing games / adventure, you definitely need to play this.
