Advanced crafting techniques
Along with dynamic open-world gameplay, Horizon Zero Dawn features a rich crafting system. The robotic creatures, known as “Machines”, have components that can be harvested; these are vital to your survival. Components such as electricity and metal are some of the most useful resources, and the ability to fuse primitive gear with advanced technology has potential to be one of the greatest aspects of the game.
What good would weapons be if we couldn’t use them right? Horizon Zero Dawn has a variety of ways to take out your enemies. You can shoot arrows, set traps like tripwires, use explosives, ambush your nearby enemy by hiding in the bush, and take out your enemy with good old fashioned melee combat. With the Override Tool you can “hack” the Machines and turn them into travelling companions or makeshift vehicles.
