Horizon’s PS4 gameplay demo was all In-Engine, no CGI involved

Some developers tend to spice up their games when showing them off at E3 by taking help of CGI, this raises expectations and causes problems after the game’s release. Guerrilla Games’ Horizon was shown off at Sony’s E3 conference and the game looked absolutely mesmerising. Horizon’s Technical Director confirmed on Twitter today that no visual trickery was involved in the gameplay demo shown on stage.

Horizon Zero Dawn looks super interesting with a Robot Dinosaur hunting post apocalypse setting. The game will be Guerrilla’s first project outside of the Killzone franchise since 2004’s Shellshock and they’re surely not intending to disappoint.


What did you think of the Horizon Zero Dawn? Could it be the next killer Playstation IP? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    It looks great but it was pretty obvious it was running in real time on PS4 grade hardware. It was nothing mind blowing.

    I stopped believing at E3 demos. Even if it isnt CGI we ve seen numerous cases where game graphics get scaled down as the release gets closer. You can`t even trust the release dates they set. I hope this one and uncharted 4 will be exactly like they say it will

    Only PC fanboys would claim that it was CGI LOL They tried the same crap with Killzone Shadow Fall’s announcement and that demo ended up looking a lot worse than the final game. Guerrilla is the dark horse of Sony’s first party studios. They’re technically as good as Naughty Dog and they make incredible games. Maybe this game will finally put them in the limelight since FPS players seem to be too stupid to enjoy the brilliance of Killzone Shadow Fall
