Horizon: Zero Dawn has had PlayStation 4 owners waiting in great anticipation for its 2016 release. Unfortunately, developer Guerrilla Games has decided to extend that wait until 2017. Managing Director Herman Hulst went on to state that the studio wants "to ensure that Horizon: Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon: Zero Dawn." Any delay that will only further improve the gameplay experience for players in the final product is a delay worth waiting out in many gamer's eyes. The game currently has a new release date set for February 28, 2017. The Horizon: Zero Dawn Collector's Edition has also been announced, and you can read up on the details regarding the special version of the game below, along with a brand new trailer that was released.
The Collector's Edition will cost $120, and will come jam-packed with digital and physical content that just may make this version of the game worth buying. In addition to the exclusive bonus in-game items, Collector's Edition purchasers will also receive a 9" statue of the protagonist of the game, along with a steelbook case for the game itself and a massive 48-page art book.
