Det sker desværre alt for sjældent at der kommer helt nye universer. Det kaldet for IP for Intellectual Property der på dansk er immaterielle rettigheder. Så at der kommer en satsning fra Sony med Horizon Zero Dawn der samtidig bliver en publikumssucces skal selvfølgelig anerkendes. Vi har sakset pressemeddelelsen:

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) today announced global sales of
Horizon Zero DawnTM have exceeded 7.6 million copies just one year since it launched exclusively on PlayStation®4 (PS4TM)[1]. The exceptional year-one-sales mark Horizon Zero Dawn as the most successful new first-party title franchise launch on PS4. Horizon Zero Dawn was released on February 28, 2017 to widespread critical acclaim, winning numerous industry awards.

“We are incredibly grateful that Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds have been received so positively by so many gamers and it is a testament to the fantastic work of the entire team at Guerrilla. The combination of beautiful story-telling and great characters, with excellent gameplay mechanics, has resonated well with fans and led to this exceptional sales milestone,” said Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios.

“We had huge ambition for Horizon Zero Dawn and as we approached the launch we knew people were excited, but to see sales of this volume is truly mind blowing. Since launch, millions of players have joined Aloy on a quest to discover the secrets of the old ones. We hope they enjoy playing Horizon Zero Dawn as much as we enjoyed making it,” said Hermen Hulst, Managing Director and Co-Founder, Guerrilla.

Available to download from the PlayStation Store, Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition combines the original game with the expansion, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, so gamers can experience the full adventure.
