Netflix is ​​heavily involved in video games, and in addition to real video games, the streamer is also developing a number of adaptations of popular games. One such project is Horizon, which will be an adaptation of the Horizon game series that follows Aloy on her adventures in a post-apocalyptic US that is mostly inhabited by mechanical creatures.

It is known that at this stage there are no directors or actors, but we know that Carter Swan as well as Assad Qizilbash. Both are very prominent figures when it comes to adapting games for the PlayStation, as they also released Uncharted as well as upcoming adaptations for PlayStation. Last of us, Ghost of Tsushima as well as twisted metal.

The series was originally announced in May 2022 with PlayStation Productions and Sony Pictures Television behind the Netflix series.

Horizon a video game series from a Dutch developer Guerrilla games who are also best known Kill zone franchise.

Here’s everything we know about Netflix. Horizon live action adaptation:


What’s the plot Horizon?

History of the original game Zero dawn horizonthe action takes place in the post-apocalyptic United States in the 31st century.

People live in scattered primitive tribes with different levels of technological development. Their technologically advanced predecessors are remembered as the “Old Ones”. Earth is dominated by large robotic beings known as “machines”. For the most part, they coexist peacefully with humans, who occasionally hunt them for parts.

In the main game, we follow Aloy, who grew up without parents and lived isolated from the four tribes. She grows up and eventually has to investigate a phenomenon known as “Psycho”, which has caused machines to become more aggressive towards humans, and larger, deadlier machines begin to appear.

Here is a brief description of the four tribes: Nora, Banuk, Carha and Oseram:

The Nora are ferocious hunter-gatherers who live in the mountains and worship nature as the All-Mothers.

Carja are desert dwellers, city builders who worship the sun.

The Banuk are made up of wandering clans of hunters and shamans who live in the snowy mountains and worship machines and their “songs”.

Ozeram are tinkers and scavengers known for their metalworking, brewing and martial prowess.”

Here is the trailer for the first game released in 2017:

The second game is called Forbidden Horizon West released in 2022.


Will the Netflix adaptation be faithful to the original first game?

It’s hard to say for sure, but given the history of video game adaptations, we probably shouldn’t expect Horizon to be an accurate retelling of the game’s story. Especially given the latest Resident Evil a live action series from Netflix that has nothing to do with the plot of any of the games.


Who is involved Horizon?

The cast of the Netflix series has not been announced. Horizon series as of June 2022.

Aloy, for those who don’t know, voiced by Ashly Burch in the game. Lance Reddick, John Macmillan, and John Hopkins also prominently voiced characters in the game.

Recently, one of the most popular choices by fans online for the role of Aloy has been Sadie Sinksince the announcement of the Horizon is almost the same day as very strange things Season 4 is out now, which has also been boosted by the fact that Max Sink has a very exciting and memorable scene that the internet has also come to love. Lyndon Smith also often mentioned in online circles for this role.

Another proposal was face model Aloy, a Dutch model and actress. Hanna Hoekstrabut it’s highly unlikely that Netflix would opt for a literal face model to play Aloy, as that would be too close to games, and adaptations usually don’t.


What production Horizon?

No official filming date has been set. We’ve heard that production could start in Toronto within the next month or two, but that’s just speculation for now.


What is the Netflix release date Horizon?

Netflix has not announced a release date for its Horizon live-action adaptation, but given the start of production in 2022, we should probably expect the first season to hit the streamer, possibly early 2024.
