PS4 action-RPG Horizon: Zero Dawn will run at 1080p/30fps and is being developed on a modified version of the Killzone: Shadow Fall engine, Guerrilla has confirmed.

"It is actually still the same engine but then [there is] an enormous leap from Shadow Fall to this," art director Jan-Bart van Beek told VideoGamer.com at E3 earlier today. "The Shadow Fall engine isn't an open-world streaming world engine so for the last two years a lot of technological effort has gone into actually being able to make it work like this."

Horizon: Zero Dawn was revealed during Sony's E3 press conference on Tuesday, and sees players step into the role of a machine hunter called Aloy in an open world set 1,000-2,000 years after the apocalypse.

The game launches exclusively on PS4 in 2016.
