Titan Comics has announced some of the titles that will fill out its line-up for Free Comic Book Day 2020. The first is a one-shot comic continuing the story of its ongoing Blade Runner 2019 series, but the other will mark the first instalment of a brand-new comic book series based within the world of PS4’s Horizon Zero Dawn.
Pitched by Titan as an exclusive lead-in story to a wider series, the blub makes clear that this first issue won’t be set before or during the events of the hit game, but rather in its immediate aftermath. “Discover a far-future Earth full of epic natural beauty,” it teases, “where awe-inspiring machines are the dominant species.”
The synopsis: “Talanah, Sunhawk of the Hunters Lodge, struggles to find purpose after Aloy, her trusted friend, disappears. When a mysterious new threat emerges in the wilds, she returns to her roots as a hunter to defeat it, only to learn that a whole new breed of mechanized killers stalks the land.”
Here’s hoping it can wet our appetite before the arrival of PS5’s inevitable sequel.
