Horizon: Zero Dawn comes with extra content if you're willing to pay a little more and prior to its release.

59 Comments

The PS4-exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn is set for a February 2017 release, and if you're confident enough to spend your money early, you can pick up a few bonuses for preordering it.

The Nora Machine Trapper pack is the universal preorder bonus that you'll get with Horizon: Zero Dawn no matter where you buy it. It's a resource pack that comes with modifications for protagonist Aloy's weapon and outfit, in addition to crafting resources. Those who purchase it from GameStop/EB Games will also get the Nora Lookout Outfit and Longshot Bow.

No Caption Provided

The Digital Deluxe edition costs $70 and gets you two resource packs, the Carja Trader and the Banuk Traveller; two outfits, the Carja Storm Ranger and the Banuk Trailblazer; and two weapons, the Carja Mighty Bow and the Banuk Culling Bow. It also comes with the Nora Machine Trader pack, a digital art book, and a PS4 theme. You can check it all out in the picture above.

Another option you can go with is the $120 Collector's edition, which comes with a nine-inch statue and a 48-page art book.

Horizon: Zero Dawn was shown during Sony's E3 press conference. The demo featured its gorgeous setting and new abilities. We got to go hands-on with Horizon, and you can read our preview here.

Definitely one of this year's must buys for me. It's been high on my list since last E3, and to be honest, I'm glad it's coming in early 2017. I need the extra time to knock off some titles on my backlog.

Never preoder digitally. There's no reason whatsoever to do so. Always wait for reviews.

@Thanatos2k: Always wait for reviews?? why can't gamers use their own judgement?. I pre-ordered and based on what I have seen I can't wait. Loved Killzone 2. 3, and shadow fall. I have confidence in Guerrilla Games Horizon Zero Dawn is looking amazing.

@rebfaction: If you use your own judgement, you're out money. Everyone ain't made of cash and no one has time to play every game released.

@Thanatos2k: True you can't buy every game. All I am saying gamers can make their own decision when it comes to buying video games and not look to personal opinion reviews that's all they are, I never trusted reviews and never will. I always use my own judgement. I'm not saying that I buy every game under the sun just the games that interests me and Horizon Zero Dawn has me very interested the game is looking amazing to me.

@rebfaction: Again, you cannot use your personal judgement always because that requires buying every game to see if it's good. Using the opinions of other people as a filter is a time tested method in all entertainment media.

@Thanatos2k: I am not going to use the opinion of others to make the decision if I'm going to like a video game or to see if the game is going to be good or any other entertainment media. I can make that decision for myself, this game will be amazing.

@rebfaction: So you can somehow tell without even playing a game that it will be amazing? Wow, marketing loves people like you.

@Thanatos2k: I am useing my judgement. and it's not just based on what I see it's also the developer's experience in the killzone series. I have confidence in the people making Horizon Zero Dawn . I will be playing this game on day of release and I can't wait, and so will millions of others not just me.

So, preordering gets you bonuses that actually affect gameplay. And it even depends where you preorder. Super scummy. This game just went from 'buy new' to 'buy at a discount'. Oh well

I think the game looks great and I'm probably going to get it, but I really dislike it when preorderers get in-game bonuses that impact the gameplay/difficulty balance.

@louixiii: So you want an unfinished game, or hoping a time traveler(no point giving you the game when you got that power) will bring you into a similar future where you get to be like her.

@peekaboobs: Wish I could say the same. I didn't like Shadow Fall or the original KZ, but with Horizon...i think they're going to really impress

@louixiii: yea their games are not going to appeal to everyone ..

i loved Shadow fall and religiously played the OG killzone...to each their own.

but i agree, i think they have a universal hit on their hands with Horizon .. it will appeal to a wider audience i think.

@peekaboobs: Oh yeah. I enjoyed KZ2 and 3 btw...just didn't like the weight to it, but this looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. I'm really looking forward to it because it's different. Robotic animals in a reborn world...it's crazy

As good as Horizon looks, buying any videogame purely on faith is a risk and pre-ordering a brand new IP even more so. I'd prefer buying a good game at retail and losing a few bonus items, rather than have the pre-order items but owning a stinker.

I'll be waiting for the reviews. Very few companies these days have my trust before then.

@njurican24535: I think most video games are not necessary, but I don't think Skyrim getting a remaster hurts anything. Especially if you're a console player.

@njurican24535: Agreed. Honestly, I don't think they should be remastering any games from the previous generation.

@Yomigaeru: fully agreed.. we are already to the point where they are going to do a hardware re-fresh , and the Xbox one already is getting a slim version now.. and they are STILL wanting to bring games back from previous generations?.. tf is wrong with them!? ..they should use that time and resources to make new IP's instead.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is and my most hype PS4 game since Infamous: Second Son, I'm totally looking forward to this game. Horizon's combat definitely barrows from Witcher 3 and from all the gameplay I seen, I was impress but pre-ordering is another story. I'm considering pre-ordering The Digital Deluxe edition since it's only just $70 more dollars then the standard price, so I'm thinking about pre-order this since just about all my PS4 games are digital anyway.

@maitkarro: Of course I have. GoW doesn't have a release date so no point in me getting hype for it. Horizon is the one I want the most.
