Guerrilla Games and Sony Interactive’s Horizon: Zero Dawn takes place in a post-apocalyptic land populated with beings like robotic dinosaurs. Yep. The game’s slated for release in early 2017, and it was teased at the recent E3 convention. To promote the title, Sony hired Spectral Motion to create a robotic dinosaur costume inspired by the game. Yep. It’s a wearable robotic dinosaur puppet.
You can get an idea of movement in the above gif, but you should really head to to Nicholas Baumann’s Facebook page to see a video showing it off.
