Horizon Zero Dawn PS5 Remaster reportedly in the works alongside multiplayer game

A remaster of 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn is reportedly in the works for PS5 alongside an all-new multiplayer game for PS5 and PC.

As reported by VGC and MP1ST, The Last of Us Part 1 Remake, in which we previously asked if it was worth its $70 price tag just nine years after release, appears to be soon joined by an updated version of the first. Aloy’s adventure on PS4.

It’s not 100% clear if this would be a full remake like The Last of Us Part 1 or just a remaster, but some details make it seem like it leans more towards the latter. Reports claim that this new release will add “accessibility features, graphics modes, and quality of life improvements to the gameplay itself.” In a way, it seems to improve upon the original with added upgrades from Horizon Forbidden West.

Horizon Zero Dawn saw a PC release in 2020 and added features like improved draw distance and higher frame rates, but it wasn’t necessarily considered a remaster or remake of the original PS4 game. .

This remaster, much like The Last of Us Part 1, appears to potentially be part of Sony’s plan to remaster some of its games that are set to be made into TV or movies. Sony has officially announced a Horizon series for Netflix, and it could be a way to capitalize on the renewed interest when the series is ready to premiere, much like Cyberpunk: Edgerunners did for Cyberpunk 2077. It’s important Of note, God of War is also getting the series treatment on Amazon, so perhaps the 2018 classic could also get a remaster/remake in the future.

Along with the news of this remake/remaster, reports also claim that Guerilla Games is hard at work on a Horizon multiplayer game for PS5 and PC. In 2020, a Guerilla job posting was looking for a game programmer with multiplayer experience to work on an “epic open-world game.”

VGC noted that concept art for Horizon Zero Dawn leaked in 2014 hinted at Guerilla’s initial plans to add a Monster Hunter-style multiplayer mode to the game that would allow players to team up to take down massive mechanical enemies. Those plans never materialized, but they could be ready for Horizon 3 or a standalone game.
