There are a ton of great open-world games for the PlayStation 4, from the action-movie-esque Far Cry series to the brilliant, time-destroying Fallout titles. But there's one open-world action / adventure game that rises above the others; a game that's not only a roaring good time, but has also come to define the PS4 and what the system is capable of. That game is Horizon Zero Dawn, and for a limited time only, Sony is selling the title on the PlayStation Store for the bargain price of just $12.99.
If you haven't played Horizon Zero Dawn, prepare to be taken on a journey of epic proportions. The title sets its adventure on the Earth long, long after the utter destruction of mankind has come to pass. Zooming into the 31st century, you'll take on the role of Aloy, a young woman raised as an outcast to her tribe. In the universe of Horizon Zero Dawn, humans share the planet with a diverse race of animal-like robotic creatures — an artifact of a previous generation and a grand artificial intelligence — which are increasingly infected with something known as "Derangement." Aloy ends up on a path to discover the truth about how the robots came to be, and what her unique role in the future of the human race will be.
