Digital Dreams is still determined to make us daydream with their videos. Determined in photorealism and making the most of the graphic options of video games, Horizon Zero Dawn is their new example after notable cases such as The Witcher 3, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. Based on a NVIDIA RTX 3090 and raising the bar to the 8K resolution with Extreme Settings, Aloy’s long-remembered adventure from Guerrilla Games (PlayStation Studios) is simply incredible.
It would not have been possible to achieve these results without Pascal Gilcher’s Rehade mod, known as Marty McFly, to be able to add some additional post-processing effects with Ray Tracing. This has an impact on lighting, shadows, and how good all sets look. Of all the post-processing solutions used, those that affect global illumination and ambient occlusion stand out.
Horizon Zero Dawn, horizons of another generation
As we can see, a mod has also been used that changes the position of the camera in Horizon Zero Dawn to be able to show the beautiful world of the game in this state with greater visual breadth. Is this how we will play on the next generation of consoles? Of course, it is already possible to do it with very high-end computers, but the price to pay is, never better said in this case, extremely high
After its passage through PS4 in 2017, Horizon Zero Dawn became one of the most beloved video games in the catalog of PlayStation exclusives in the last generation of consoles. Sony Interactive Entertainment’s strategy to amortize its productions beyond its platform led Aloy to the PC world, where it can currently be purchased on the Steam portal. Others like Days Gone have followed the same path and, apparently, Uncharted 4 is next.
The future of the saga now passes through Horizon Forbidden West, planned for late 2021 on PS4 and PS5; however, journalistic sources such as Bloomberg place the game in 2022 due to a developmental delay.
