The Horizon Franchise

Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden west is a two-game series. Add in the additional Frozen Wilds and other additional content, though, and this is a substantial experience.

Horizon Zero Dawn, and the follow-up game Horizon Forbidden West, has a post-apocalyptic feel familiar from movies like Planet of the Apes. It plunges you into an overgrown landscape with now-crumbling remnants of modern life where animalistic machines have taken over. The exploration and combat don’t dwell on the downfall of the world, but there is an interesting undercurrent of self-annihilation that lingers as you play. It’s an impressive and enjoyable world to explore that says as much about humanity’s ability to survive as any direct narrative.

There have been 3 games in the Horizon franchise.
The first game was released in 2017 on PC and PlayStation 4 and the most recent release was Horizon Forbidden West in 2022 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
