Celebrate Horizon Zero Dawn’s birthday with these phenomenal photo mode shots

I know, I know. It’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole year since Horizon Zero Dawn (opens in new tab) first graced the PS4. Robot dinosaurs? Roaming through an environment lush enough to make Mother Nature faint with awe? Made by the studio behind Killzone, of all things? Back then it sounded like something from a fever dream. Little did anyone know that Horizon would be one of the best games of 2017 (opens in new tab) and bestow upon us what is quite possibly the most original story and world since BioShock (opens in new tab). To celebrate its frankly astonishing world I’ve compiled the very best photo mode shots out there for you to gape at to your Mother’s Heart’s content.
