It dawns on me that I have zero interest in this. But I might change my mind when it gets closer to the horizon.

It is a full-fledged RPG with XP, perks, skill trees, etc.

How can anyone not want to play as a character named Aloy?  I'm sold!

I'm on it, even though Killzone Shadow Fall wasn't my favorite game. 

 

I'm convinced Aloy's voice belongs to Bridget Regan, from John Wick, Agent Carter, and Legend of the Seeker years ago. 

 

Here she plays Dottie the blonde Black Widow.

That protagonist seems incredibly annoying.

Now that you've mentioned it, Aloy has Bridget Regan's likeness and hair color as well.  Bridget Regan is actually a redhead, although she rarely plays one in TV and movies.

If it comes out for PC I might look into it otherwise I have no interest (seeing as I don't have a PS4 and have no plans to buy one).

Apparently the demo was already playable at E3.  GT and IGN crew talk about the demo, story, setting, hunting and trapping, trading/economy, towns, RPG elements, etc.

That's new, creatures not necessarily appearing with full health and armor. I never noticed the old spears and missing armor plates on the big dino. How interesting, so I won't need to use the same strategies every battle with the same creatures. Some are strong and ready, some could be on their last legs.

It looks excellent. But being a PS4 exclusive.. not so excellent.

 

I'll still keep an eye out. I did get an Xbox 360, after all, even though I must have spent less than 100 hours total playing games on it.

 

Reminds me.. I really should get back to Dragon's Dogma one of these days.

Typical Human Propaganda, portraying the innocent machines as villains even as they perpetrate murder upon them.  One day you will have to face the truth that YOU are the monsters!

It's been in development since 2011, according to that Wiki article.  It's set to be released in 2016.  A five year development cycle is pretty long nowadays, is it not?

It depends how they count that five years. If that five years include coming up with idea and getting it green lighted on publisher then five years isn't atypically long development cycle. So question is how long game is developed by full team and how much of said development time is just done by prework team.

 

Like for example Alan Wake was in development over 7 years, but big part of that time it only had under 10 people working on it, which is why it production cost were much lower than most of the AAA franchises that have yearly releases with about 3 years development time.

So this "primal" / roots stuff really is the next big thing. Man, I would gladly buy & play such a game with a real down to earth kind of setting, but all this mashup-sci-fi-fantasy-whatever stuff is totally turning me off.
