Release date changes usually suck. This one doesn't: Horizon: Zero Dawn has been bumped up from its previous UK release date of March 3 to March 1. Yay! PlayStation UK announced the news on Twitter, where it was met with… well, a mix of reactions:

But the real kicker here is that Sony and Guerrilla Games have to feel pretty confident about the state of Horizon if the game is getting moved to an earlier date (at least in the UK - the US release date is still February 28). That's definitely good news for anyone looking to hunt some robo-dinosaurs in a post-civilization world.
