YouTube’s ‘Nixian’ has shared two videos, showcasing the evolution of Horizon Zero Dawn. These videos feature every build of the game, from its 2011/2012 prototypes to its final version. And, to be honest, I absolutely love this kind of videos.
There is something truly mesmerizing watching the prototype versions of games that are already out. Moreover, it can give you a glimpse of a game’s development (and its changes) throughout the years.
As we can clearly see, Aloy had a completely different character model at the beginning. Not only that, but there were some features in the prototype builds that did not were canned.
