A robot with PTSD, a wide open galaxy and a flashmob in pursuit of Mario are just some of the highlights that made these teasers more than just ads

Horizon Zero Dawn "PlayStation Experience 2016"

The vast world on display here seems like just the thing, especially after you've hung up your swords following Blood and Wine, The Witcher 3's last expansion. If you've been hungering for a huge, wild world to explore, Horizon Zero Dawn looks like it'll scratch that itch, only this one is populated by funky mecha-fauna, ranging from speedy and elk-like, to gargantuan, ferocious pre-historic-looking terrors. But more than anything else, this trailer evokes mystery, with scant hints of a ruined civilization amidst nature's untamed grandeur. It begs a whole bunch of questions, not the least of which is why the world looks like something out of Michael Bay's most deranged fever dream.
