Reviews for Horizon Zero Dawn started to show up last week. The game is receiving a lot of praise, including a 9/10 score from GameSpot.

Earlier this month, Sony talked about how Horizon Zero Dawn has the potential to become a new franchise for the company. A report from SuperData said the game could sell as many as 6 million copies by the end of 2017 and up to 8 million for its lifetime, bringing it close to Uncharted 4. This would be a particularly notable achievement, as Horizon Zero Dawn is a brand-new franchise.

In other news, developer Guerrilla Games has announced everything that's in Horizon Zero Dawn's day one update. For more on the game, read all of GameSpot's previous stories and watch every video here.
