The Vantage Point Story
The world of Horizon Zero Dawn is teeming with stories and lore for you to discover. Of course, with so many datapoints and collectibles to grab along the way, there’s a good chance that you may have missed one or two. Or perhaps you just didn’t check them out when you found them. As such, we’ve put together this list of the coolest stories hidden away in some of the collectibles and datapoints in Horizon Zero Dawn.
Please be warned, this post will contain some spoilers regarding the game’s story. If you want to enjoy Horizon Zero Dawn spoiler-free, we advise turning back now.
While Vantage Points may just seem like some brief visual glimpses into the past, they actually tell a pretty interesting tale. These collectibles essentially tell the story of a guy on an apocalypse tour, lovingly referred to as the ‘Apocashitstorm Tour.’
The author tells you of why he visited these particular places once everything had all started going horribly wrong. Significant moments in his life took place in these locations, and listening to the audio only scratches the surface of the details. Jumping into the collectibles menu and selecting each Vantage Point will give you a good few paragraphs, telling you a story of what happened to this guy in all of these places before the events happened.
They may not flesh out the main story or characters significantly, but reading through them definitely makes for an interesting adventure. Be sure to collect them all to get the full story.
