Is This Upcoming Video Game Set in Colorado?
The game which is set to be released in early 2017 for the Playstation 4 console has some oddly familiar resemblances to our state of Colorado. The game is called Horizon Zero Dawn which is a role playing game set in a post apocalyptic world where robots rule earth and the remaining humans have receded back into tribal roots. Some screen shots of the game look awfully familiar. Take a look...
Those mountains look a lot like this Location in Colorado.
Another screen shot of the game resembles Hallett Peak, does it not?
If that doesn't start to convince you, how about this one? In Colorado Springs there is a memorial called Pikes Peak Range Riders Memorial... Looks like the same two cowboys in the game, right?
Out on the western slopes of Colorado there is a National Park called Colorado National Monument, which looks almost identical to the screenshot from the game above.
As a Denver Native and a photographer, I know exactly where this location is. The river running in the bottom right of the screenshot... That would be I-25. The ruins to the left of the character? Mile High Stadium! Take a peek.
I am not much of a gamer, but I think I might just have to cough up the $$$ and buy a PS4 and this game when it comes out! Check out the trailer for the game as well!
