new video and commentary by the game director.

 

1. map extends from utah to pacific ocean

2. Atleast a dozen new robot. 
3. No loading while fast travelling or restarting. Game boots instantly 

4. Aiming for 2021

 

Do they have guns that will stay in inventory?

Can you upgrade Aloy's pointy stikk at will, not dependent on shady cyborg black dudes?

 

They avoid all the important questions.

Aloy is as smart as the shady black dude, im sure they can show her making her custom guns and all.

2021 with no month?  That doesn’t sound good for PS5 sales predictions at launch. This game would have broken console sales records. 

Frankly I was expecting in December 2021 anyways. No one counted it to be a launch / launch window game

HZD released back in Feb 2007. 3 years seems be the standard between iterations. And they appear to use a more enhanced version of the same Decima engine if I am not wrong hence no delay due to a new engine like in Halo Infinite
 

Seems too long since HZD is a campaign only game and not making revenues from MP and micro-transactions unlike GTA online. Rockstar is still cashing on GTAV next gen too.

Yeah but console base at launch is too low to make money. You can't send out a 100 mil+ game on a console that's just come out. Games especially single player games can't retain their price for very long and it would mean a lot of lost revenue for Sony.

It wouldn't have broken any records. Not even close..

Hmmm. That makes sense. Both the PS3 and PS4 had a subpar line up of first party games at launch with dependence on third parties cross gen games to increase sales. Sony is doing the same for PS5 too. 
 

I believe that this game is mostly finished and ready for the launch but postponed to next year once they have reached a certain sale benchmark. Same can be said for RE8 which is already playable from start to finish.

For first party games install base doesn't matter. Their sole job is to push the hardware sales and there's no better time than at launch. If HZD2 was launched with PS5 it could have near 100% attach rate, it will literally make its own install base as it sells (like BotW).

Doubt HZD2 can push for sales of PS5 though, if it was a SP+MP game like killzone, its a different story, but SP only games have a relatively smaller market.  I think Sony should've had a game like shadowfall and bundle it along-with the console.  Right now, the launch looks like that of PS3, first year would be mostly underwhelming FP titles / cross gen 3P titles, and the best games would come in much later (maybe after 1 - 2 years).

No lol.

Work still has to be done, else they would have shown some gameplay footage in that trailer itself.

 

 

Btw is anyone else curious what the black dude's endgame is with having his own gang of oogah boogahs and domesticated machines?

I always forget his name :lol:

Biggest difference is backwards compatibility. PS3 and PS4 launches were barren because of no BC, even xbone didn't have proper BC. But now both consoles will launch with full bc at launch and there will be no shortage of games to play. The real driving factor will be exclusives and Sony doesn't have a big mp focused exclusive anyways, so HZD2 should have pushed the hardware much better.

He is simply known as a concierge of the Continental hotel. People who go looking for his real name usually end up disappearing.

 

Nice.

Lance Reddick! One of the best actors especially when he's in a strict mentor type roll. Loved him in Wire and Fringe. 

 

He's really best everywhere he shows up.
