Horizon Zero Dawn is two years old, and celebrated its birthday with an awesome announcement – they’ve sold an impressive 10million copies in that time.

In case you somehow haven’t played it yet (what have you been doing?!) the plot follows Aloy, a hunter in a world overrun by machines, who sets out to uncover her past. The player uses ranged weapons, a spear and stealth to combat mechanised creatures and loot their remains. A skill tree provides the player with new abilities and bonuses. You can also explore the open world to discover side quests.

In the Playstation blog, they wrote: “And yet, here we are, already well over 10 million copies sold worldwide; the idea that we were able to bring Aloy’s journey to so many players is astounding. We’ve been deeply moved by the enormous amount of fan creations you’ve posted online, as well as the heartfelt letters you’ve sent sharing your favorite moments from Aloy’s journey.”
