Anyone else rocking the new Horizon Zero Dawn and find the “ruins” of Red Rocks Amphitheatre?!
Wow this is cool.
This kind user browsed around a bit and got a vid capture published on what the venue looks like after the world is “overrun by robots,” the basic premise of the videogame.
Looks sick af.
The story is set approximately one thousand years in the future, in a world where humans have regressed to primitive tribal societies as a result of some unknown calamity. Their technologically advanced predecessors are vaguely remembered as the “Old Ones.” Large robotic creatures known merely as “machines” now dominate the Earth. For the most part, they peacefully coexist with humans, who occasionally hunt them for parts.
More than a few basic sci-fi tropes in there to unpack, but a proven foundation for a full-fledged video game franchise and a new set of worlds to explore.
At any rate, if you wanted to explore the venue yourself in the game, you’ll be looking for The Sterlin-Malkeet Amphitheater Vantage Point.
