See Two Of Horizon Zero Dawn's Massive Monster Machines In New Videos

Introducing Stormbird and Behemoth.


With just a few more weeks to go before Horizon Zero Dawn comes out for PlayStation 4, Sony today published a pair of videos for the game that show off two of its machine beasts.

These newest videos spotlight Stormbird and Behemoth. The videos (watch both below) cover each machine's abilities and, more helpfully, their vulnerabilities. You can see official descriptions for each at the bottom of this post.

Earlier this week, Sony released spotlight videos for the machines Thunderjaw and Snapmaw--watch those here. In other news, the game's full world map has been revealed.

Originally scheduled to debut in 2016, Zero Dawn was later delayed to the end of February. It launches in the US on February 28 and in Europe a day later, on March 1.

An action game that features RPG elements, Zero Dawn is a step in a new direction for developer Guerrilla Games, which is perhaps best known for creating the Killzone first-person shooter series. In other news, Guerrilla this week detailed the game's HUD options and showed off its photo mode.

For more on the game, check out GameSpot's new preview and this rundown of the game's full skill tree.


"Soaring through the sky at high altitude, the fearsome Stormbird is a combat-class machine that can swoop down and attack its prey with tremendous force. It is just as dangerous on land as it is in the air, with a variety of swift and powerful attacks that range from wing blasts to claw slashes. Its enormous metal wings are capable of collecting and discharging the electricity in the air."


"The Behemoth is a huge, rugged transport-class machine that uses anti-gravity technology to transfer precious cargo from smaller acquisition-class machines into its stomach container. When provoked, it may charge at the enemy or use its anti-gravity unit to hurl heavy objects. It is also equipped with a set of grinding drills that allow it to grind and propel rock projectiles."
