Watch The Epic Horizon Zero Dawn Launch Trailer

It's almost time.


The next major PlayStation 4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn, is almost here. Ahead of its release next week, Sony today published the launch trailer for the much-anticipated action-RPG.

The video, which does not contain any gameplay footage, sets up some of the story for the futuristic game in which massive robot machines rule the Earth. You play as Aloy, an inquisitive woman who treks through the world to find out what the robots are and where they came from. You can watch the video in the embed above.

Reviews for Horizon Zero Dawn started to show up earlier this 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 this week 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.
