Horizon is the first new IP from Guerrilla Games since it launched Killzone back in the mid-2000s for the PlayStation 2. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape populated by mechanised behemoths, which players must battle as Aloy in order to salvage their vital components. 

Sony has confirmed that it will release a PS4 bundle featuring a copy of Horizon day-and-date with the game’s release, and there’s also a Horizon Collector’s Edition up for grabs if you fancy splashing out on the game.
