Horizon Zero Dawn Celebrates its First Birthday, Surpasses 7.6 Million Sales

Guerrilla Games' PlayStation 4 exclusive open world action-RPG Horizon Zero Dawn launched roughly a year ago, on February 28, 2017. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, this story about an outcast girl who fights robot dinosaurs ended up being a critically acclaimed smash hit. According to this developer post on the PlayStation Blog, close to 8 Million copies of Horizon Zero Dawn have been sold to date.

And to celebrate the game's first anniversary, the developers are offering some PlayStation 4 gear and cosmetics, a 30-35% discount for the game until March 6, 2018, and this behind-the-scenes video that focuses on the game's music:
