Horizon: Zero Dawn is so detailed that water puddles evaporate in real-time
You know development went well when a game can do this.
Horizon: Zero Dawn has proven to be one of 2017's best game releases, which is high praise considering the plethora of amazing games that have come out already this year. The game's development has been well documented for reasons that are largely positive. You don't often hear about when things go well (at least as well as game development allows), but in this case, Guerrilla Games appears to have had enough time to add some smaller details to take the game's immersion factor to the next level.
As noticed by ThisGenGaming, Horizon: Zero Dawn actually has a small system hidden beneath its many details that allows for water to be evaporated in real-time after a rainstorm. Just check out the GIF below.
Horizon: Zero Dawn has garnered near-universal praise since its launch last month. The game got an overall score of 9.5 in the official GameZone Review, and Horizon has already seen over 2.6 million in total sales. If you loved the game as much as we did, you'd be happy to know that Guerrilla Games is already working on an expansion for the game, though it will still be a little while before we get our hands on it.
