In a futuristic world populated by humans and monstrously large facsimiles of natural wildlife, Horizon Dawn: The Board Game focuses on the hunters of the world and their bid to track and hunt these machine creatures. The miniatures in this game appear just as stunningly cool as the ones seen in the video game series.
