Horizon Zero Dawn's launch trailer is a spectacle to behold

Clear the next three minutes from your schedule. Maybe six. The Horizon Zero Dawn launch trailer is good enough that you may want to watch it twice. It's a stylish mixture of entrancing tribal rituals and cinematic robo-dino fighting. The ...   read

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn came out of nothingness and delighted thousands. Born on a lark as the "most risky" concept from a Guerilla Games pitch session, the aesthetic of meshing tribal warfare with high-tech creatures is intriguing all on its own...   read

The next Watch Dogs 2 DLC tackles self-driving cars and whose lives they should prioritize
