Horizon Zero Dawn will take readers on brand new adventures with Aloy and Erend.

Fans of Guerrilla Games’ 2017 smash-hit Horizon Zero Dawn will be pleased to know that Aloy will be returning to the comics for a second arc.

Titan Comics have once again teamed up with Guerrilla to bring readers back into the world of Aloy and Erand that will tell the story of the most important events in its history, the legendary Liberation of Meridian from the wicked Sun-King Jiran.

Fans will also get action-packed adventures that see Aloy and her side-kick hunt for a killer with links to Erand’s past as well as delving deeper into how his sister Ersa, Captain of the Carja Vanguard, was murdered.

The critically acclaimed writing team behind the first arc led by Horizon Zero Dawn Narrative Director Ben McCaw and writer Anne Toole will be returning for this new story.

Responding to the success of the first arc Narrative Director Ben McCaw stated “All of us who worked on the story – myself, Anne Toole, Annie Kitain, and Ari Martinez – feel humbled by the praise the series has received. During the writing process, we could only hope that fans would connect with the characters the same way we do, and it’s gratifying to hear that we succeeded.”

The narrative team who made the Horizon Zero Dawn game such an incredible world to be in has received many praises throughout their time in the games industry that saw them win the Award for Achievement in Videogame Writing in 2018 from the Writers Guild of America.  Horizon Zero Dawn: Liberation will be a great filler until we get our hands on Horizon Forbidden West which comes out sometime this year.

Issue #1 of Horizon Zero Dawn: Liberation will debut with a range of stunning variant covers to collect, including artwork by Peach Momoko (Captain Marvel, Spider-Gwen), Harvey Tolibao (Uncanny X-Men, Green Arrow), Ann Maulina (Raruurien) and Dave Wilkins (New MutantsSavage Sword of Conan).

 Horizon Zero Dawn: Liberation #1 is set to arrive in stores July 14, 2021.
