Horizon Zero Dawn isn't out until next week, but we've had some early time with Guerilla Games' latest labour of love. And every single one of us is so impressed.
This is what we think so far.
Video: Guerilla Games, the studio responsible for making Horizon: Zero Dawn — a Playstation exclusive that looks like it'll make amazing use of the PS4 Pro's beautiful HDR — hasn't made an open-world game before. In the past, it made the Killzone series of tight corridor shooters, but FPS is a very different beast to RPG. A short series of videos from Sony looks at how Guerilla evolved to adapt to the challenge, and what it means for the gameplay of H:ZD.
Whether you've just unwrapped a brand new PS4 or you've had one since launch day in November 2013, you probably haven't explored everything Sony's powerhouse console has to offer — no doubt you've been too busy gaming. Join us on a tour of 10 of our favourite PS4 tips, from upgrading its internals to streaming games to your laptop.
Razer has built a "tournament-grade' controller for the PlayStation 4 — with supposedly better ergonomics than your common or garden DualShock, as well as a bunch of customisable settings and esports-friendly extras. And, y'know, it looks suspiciously like someone chucked an Xbox One controller and a PS4 controller into Photoshop and mucked around with the transparency.
There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro. The woman is a multicolored bundle of light particles and thanks to HDR, I can make out each particle and note the way they each cast their own vibrant glow on on the red brick wall. Normally, she'd be a big blob of light, but high dynamic range gives you details in moments of extreme brightness and extreme darkness. I'm watching the next big step in video games, and it is extraordinary.
