Comparing the Map of Horizon: Zero Dawn to Skyrim

By Brittni Finley

Now that Horizon: Zero Dawn is out for PC, players can take a closer look and compare its gorgeous map to the classic open-world Skyrim.

Since its release, Skyrim has been a comparison reference to other open-world games, not just in terms of hours of gameplay, but also the map size. Skyrim is known to clock in at 300+ hours of gameplay between all of its major storylines and random side quests, filling its map to the brim with lore, history, and secrets to discover. Even so, it's noted for having great replayability. Nearly ten years later, any open-world RPG is actively compared to Bethesda's hit fantasy, including Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Just recently released to PC gamers, Horizon: Zero Dawn's map is interesting because it's based on real locations. For example, the Ring of Metal is Denver Stadium, and Meridian, the largest and most developed city in the game, is Eagle Canyon, Utah. While it's not completely accurate, it still offers a large number of locations and quests for the player to discover, which has brought many fans to compare it to the martyr in the open-world genre, Skyrim.

Map Size

Broaching the physical size of the map is strange because Horizon's map can be looked at in one of two ways. Most maps like Grand Theft Autoand Witcher 3 can be quantified in square miles, but the same can't exactly be said about Guerrilla's adventure title because it projects a rendition of the real world. For this reason, Studio Art Director Jan-Bart van Beek says that every location in Horizon was scaled to a smaller size. Skyrim is easy; it's a little less than 15 squared miles. Yet, Horizon's official map size says it spans 4 miles across. However, this is at a scale to 107.5:1 in the real world. Crossing from one landmark to another in-game can take a mere handful of minutes, while it real life it can take hours.

For this reason, there are different reasons to state the Horizon map size as either bigger or smaller than Skyrim's. Boiling it down to just game scale, tough, it's clear that Skyrim is much larger than Horizon. This is the most logical comparison, as Skyrim isn't based on a real-world counterpart like Horizon.

Density

Many players and critics have praised Horizon: Zero Dawnfor its exciting side quests and expansive lore that support the universe of its post-post-apocalyptic world. The map acts similarly to that in Far Cry and Assassin's Creed games. For example, the Tallnecks act as a climbable vantage point, and hacking into them will reveal that section of the map, unveiling locations such as campfires and settlements. The lands are also riddled with machine sites, similar to animal sites in Far Cry 3. But while Horizon features lots of quests and gorgeous scenery, it's nowhere near as packed with discoverable areas as Skyrim. 

The province of Skyrim has a nearly uncountable number of locations (at least in terms of how many someone would want to count), both found via marked map locations or hidden spots that only pop up on the map once they are arrived at. Most locations in both games can fall under a category. Examples include bandit camps, dragon locations, caves, and Jarl castles in Skyrim, and ruins, cauldrons, and machine sites in Horizon. Still, the number of marked places in Skyrim clock in at a whopping 459, and Horizon doesn't come close.

Cities are another great example of how much denser Skyrim is compared to Horizon. Aside from Meridian, most settlements in Horizon only have a handful of NPCs, a merchant, and a quest-giver or two. This is due to the nature of the setting, but society in Skyrim is much more developed. Each major city is equipped with a Jarl, each of which offers quests, tasks, and errands to the player character. Homes can be purchased, and dozens upon dozens of quests can be unveiled by speaking with NPCs or finding objects lying around.

Though it's been up to preference which of the two titles is a better and all-around more enjoyable game, it looks like The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrimtakes the cake with its map. Even so, PC players are excited to have the chance at exploring the post-post-apocalyptic universe and tragic tale of Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds - how to get Bluegleam

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds introduces a new resource called Bluegleam. Here's how to get Bluegleam, where to find it, and what to spend it on.

Bluegleam is a gemstone of sorts found only in The Frozen Wilds DLC for Horizon Zero Dawn. A crystalline substance, it seems to grow on dead machines in the frosty reaches of The Cut, and is prized by Banuk shamans. Let's talk it over, as part of our Horizon Zero Dawn guide.

Bluegleam is the only currency Banuk merchants will accept in exchange for their best local goods: upgraded versions of the hunter, sharpshot and war bows you'll want to get your hands on as early in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds as possible, so you can enjoy using them throughout the tougher challenges offered by the expansion.

You can also buy outfits with Bluegleam, but that can wait for endgame assuming you have the Shield-Weaver, Horizon Zero Dawn's best outfit, since none of the new ones live up to it.

You can earn Bluegleam by completing quests in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, and we've listed the most profitable sources below, but since you'll probably want those new weapons before you do all the tough story quests, we've also listed locations you can find it just lying around in the world, with map references. Do a tour of The Cut and collect all the Bluegleam you can, then grab your new weapons and head off into the quests.

Once you've got pockets full of Bluegleam, track down a Banuk goods merchant, as indicated by a blue icon, and get your goodies. Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds introduces the best weapons in the game, and it's well worth the effort of tracking them down.

Bluegleam quest rewards

This is an incomplete list of Bluegleam rewards for completing quests in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, or found while completing those quests. There are a few other quests in the DLC not mentioned here, which we'll add at a later date once we know what you get.

  • 3 Bluegleam for completing the Waterlogged quest.
  • 1 Bluegleam found on the ground during the Shaman’s Path quest, after destroying the Control Tower and climbing.
  • 6 Bluegleam for completing the Shaman’s Path quest.
  • 1 Bluegleam in the Drone Hangar, a dungeon in the north visited during the A Secret Shared quest.
  • 1 Bluegleam for finishing the A Secret Shared quest.
  • 3 Bluegleam for finishing The Survivor quest.
  • 1 Bluegleam found on the far side of lake at the third encounter in The Hunters Three quest.
  • 3 Bluegleam for completing The Hunters Three quest.
  • 3 Bluegleam for completing the Firebreak quest.
  • 7 Bluegleam for completing The Forge of Winter quest.
  • 6 Bluegleam for trading Animal Figurines (one in each reward box).

Bluegleam formation locations

Outside of quest rewards, Bluegleam is most easily found in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds by purchasing the Bluegleam map, which is found in the Special Items section of the inventory of most vendors found in The Cut. You'll need to a badger bone and a goat skin to trade for the map, so get hunting. Once you have the Bluegleam map, you can just travel to the areas indicated by it and then use your Focus to spot Bluegleam formations.

Don't worry if you can't afford the map or have no luck tracking down the required trade items, though; we've found all the Bluegleam in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds and can show you exactly where to pick it up.

Bluegleam location #1

Start at Song's Edge, the first settlement you discover in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, and travel north east to find a bonfire. From here, climb the rise to the southwest to find three Bluegleam formations. Here's a map:

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_1

Bluegleam location #2

There are three Bluegleam formations west of Song’s Edge, but you can't get to them from the settlement. The easiest way is to work your way south from the bonfire just to the north of the location shown on the map below.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_2

Bluegleam location #3

Start at Song's Edge and travel northeast to a bonfire north of a Banuk merchant - unfortunately we're missing a map for this one, but hope to update in a few days. There are three Bluegleam formations in this area. One is in a cave right under the bonfire, but you'll have to drop down to the valley below to enter it. Another is openly lying on a ridge to the southeast of the bonfire, near the river, and easily spotted with your Focus. The third is east and slightly north of the bonfire; follow the trail in this direction until you reach a Bnuk watchtower, then search along the nearby cliff’s edge with your Focus.

Bluegleam location #4

Start at Deep Din and head east to the bonfire. From here, go north to spot some climbing handholds. Search along this higher ledge to find four Bluegleam formations, then rappel down and search along the river bank heading back towards the bonfire to locate a fifth Bluegleam formation. The map below shows where to start.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_4

Bluegleam location #5

There are three Bluegleam formations on the slopes to the north of Deep Dim, a location you'll find during the Waterlogged quest. Here's a map to show you exactly where.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_5

Bluegleam location #6

While you're at Deep Dim, head northwest and climb way, way up into the mountains to find five Bluebleam formations. The map below shows where to start looking.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_6

Bluegleam location #7

At the bonfire right before entering the caves at the start of the Shaman's Path (which you explore during the quest Shaman's Path, believe it or not), head north east, hugging the mountain wall, to find one Bluegleam formation. This map shows its location.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_7

Bluegleam location #8

There's one Bluegleam formation halfway along the Shaman's Path. You need to leave the path to reach this, so it’s best done when you're not in the middle of the quest. To reach the Bluegleam, follow the path through the cave and cross the first tripping bridge. Then, when facing the zipline to the second tipping bridge, step off the cliff to the east and search the snowbank. You can also reach this spot by going backwards along the Shaman’s Path route but it’s tricky to jump or clamber out of the river under the zipline. After collecting the Bluegleam it is safest to fast travel away. Here's the correct spot on a map:

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_8

Bluegleam location #9

Start at the Hunting Grounds and head southwest to reach a bonfire. From here, head west to find two Bluegleam formations. The first is on a ridge by a Banuk tent structure of some kind, as shown on the map below, while the second is directly north of it. Both are easy to spot but watch out for the patrolling Sawtooth.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_9

Bluegleam location #10

Check your map to find a Charger site west of the Hunting Grounds and northwest of the Drone Hangar. If you go directly north from the Charger icon you'll find one Bluegleam formation. Here's a map.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_10

Bluegleam location #11

There are two Bluegleam formations in the mountains north of the Hunting Grounds. The easiest way to reach them is to fast travel to Hunting Grounds icon, then drop down to the arena and head west, hugging the mountains, until you find an area where you can run and hop up into the peaks. The two Bluegleam formations are a few metres apart and well hidden in the rocks. This map shows where to start your search.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_11

Bluegleam location #12

There's one Bluegleam formation west of Drone Hangar; you find this dungeon during the A Secret Shared sidequest. The Bluegleam is just lying in the snow but you have to slog uphill to reach it. Here's where you'll find it:

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_12

Bluegleam location #13

Start at the Hunting Grounds and head to the bonfire to the southeast. There's one Bluegleam formation just to the west. Check the exact location on the map below.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_13

Bluegleam location #14

In the northwest of the map is a Bandit Camp, which becomes a settlement called Stone Yield after you clear it. There are three Bluegleam formations north of this location, along the mountain ridge between the high and low trails. The easiest way to get these three Bluegleam drops is to start at the bonfire near the hot spring pools to the west of Stone Yield, and head towards the location marked on the map below until you reach some climbing handholds. At the top you'll arrive exactly at the spot marked on the map, and the first Bluegleam formaiton will be almost at your feet. Look for a second set of handholds nearby to reach to the second Bluegleam formation, then just follow the trail up and around to spot a snowbank, at the end of which you'll find the third Bluegleam formation.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_14

Bluegleam location #15

Have you met Enjuk yet? He's the merchant with whom you swap Animal Figurines, and hangs out in the Visitor's Centre with a handy bonfire right outside. There's one Bluegleam formation to the southwest of this bonfire. The map will help you find it:

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_15

Bluegleam location #16

We're missing a map for this next one, but it's not too hard to find. Start at Longnotch, a settlement far to the east of the map. Now head to the bonfire that's directly west of it. There are two Bluegleam formations in easy reach of this bonfire. To get the one to the west, just head west along the trail, hugging the mountain, to find it in a little sheltered snowbank at ground level. The one to the south east is likewise found by heading in that direction and just hugging the mountain, but this time as high as you can go without jumping or climbing, as the Bluegleam formation is among the rocks.

Bluegleam location #17

Finally, head to Longnotch and then to the bonfire southwest of it. From here it's a short trot east to the two Bluegleam locations shown on the map below, which are just lying around in the open.

horizon_zero_dawn_frozen_wilds_bluegleam_17

Hopefully between the quest rewards and open world Bluegleam formations this is all you need to know to collect all the Bluegleam you could ever need in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds - it was enough for us to purchase all three Banuk weapons and the four new outfits, anyway!

Horizon: Zero Dawn Guide: How To Reveal Map Locations By Climbing Tallnecks

Horizon: Zero Dawn

One of the things you need to do in Horizon: Zero Dawn is reveal the entire map. In order to do this, you have to climb tall giraffe like beings called Tallnecks that will uncover everything.

In order to find Tallnecks, you can press the touchpad on the DualShock 4 controller to look on the map. The map should have silhouettes of four or five beings of the machine you see above.

Anyway, when you first play Horizon: Zero Dawn, most of the map will be blocked by fog. Climbing on these guys will allow you to see the whole map. Revealing the map shows locations of merchants, cauldrons, settlements and more.

When you see a Tallneck, you need to climb to a higher location in order to get to it. You should seek ramps or cliffs to get a better view of the area. Tallnecks usually walk in a predictable circle pattern,

If you get to a good position, you want to jump just above its neck. The Tallnecks usually have yellow flat bars for you to grip on. Try and make Aloy climb to the top to its circle like head. When you reach the top, press and hold triangle and Aloy will override it.

If you do that successfully, you will reveal more areas of the map. Do this multiple times so the entire map is revealed for you. Think of it like climbing towers in Assassin’s Creed.

Horizon: Zero Dawn - 10 Real World Locations

Comparing the Map of Horizon: Zero Dawn to Skyrim

Now that Horizon: Zero Dawn is out for PC, players can take a closer look and compare its gorgeous map to the classic open-world Skyrim.

Since its release, Skyrim has been a comparison reference to other open-world games, not just in terms of hours of gameplay, but also the map size. Skyrim is known to clock in at + hours of gameplay between all of its major storylines and random side quests, filling its map to the brim with lore, history, and secrets to discover. Even so, it's noted for having great replayability. Nearly ten years later, any open-world RPG is actively compared to Bethesda's hit fantasy, including Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Just recently released to PC gamers, Horizon: Zero Dawn's map is interesting because it's based on real locations. For example, the Ring of Metal is Denver Stadium, and Meridian, the largest and most developed city in the game, is Eagle Canyon, Utah. While it's not completely accurate, it still offers a large number of locations and quests for the player to discover, which has brought many fans to compare it to the martyr in the open-world genre, Skyrim.

Broaching the physical size of the map is strange because Horizon's map can be looked at in one of two ways. Most maps like Grand Theft Autoand Witcher 3 can be quantified in square miles, but the same can't exactly be said about Guerrilla's adventure title because it projects a rendition of the real world. For this reason, Studio Art Director Jan-Bart van Beek says that every location in Horizon was scaled to a smaller size. Skyrim is easy; it's a little less than 15 squared miles. Yet, Horizon's official map size says it spans 4 miles across. However, this is at a scale to in the real world. Crossing from one landmark to another in-game can take a mere handful of minutes, while it real life it can take hours.

For this reason, there are different reasons to state the Horizon map size as either bigger or smaller than Skyrim's. Boiling it down to just game scale, tough, it's clear that Skyrim is much larger than Horizon. This is the most logical comparison, as Skyrim isn't based on a real-world counterpart like Horizon.

Zero map horizon dawn

If you’ve been enjoying Horizon Zero Dawn in recent weeks, you don’t need to be told about the gorgeous environments the game boasts. The mountains, forests, and deserts of the game make for remarkable scenery, and astute observers will quickly recognize this is far more than a fantasy landscape. The world of Horizon is strongly based on the geography of real-world Colorado and Utah, and many of the vantage points you see in the game have real-world analogues you can visit. And you won’t even have to deal with killer robots along the way. 

Here’s our guide to a straight-up awesome road trip vacation that you could take in the real world, taking you past many of Aloy’s sites of adventure, and simultaneously letting you visit some of America’s most beautiful and engaging vacation spots. 

Note that the following includes minor spoilers for the locations visited and adventures undertaken during Horizon: Zero Dawn, but in every instance we’ve made a point to avoid discussing major plot points.

For the actual map of one potential route between the locations, here’s a link to a full Google Maps set of directions. You can check out a snapshot of that route below. Take the whole route, or pick your start and stop points along the way.

And just so you know where this info is coming from, you can check out the below in-game map of Horizon, with all the vantage points labeled. Note that our road trip doesn’t take you to every single vantage point (Faro Automated Solutions isn’t a real place). Also, it’s clear that several specific locations aren’t labeled by their real names in the game; for instance, the Air Force Academy becomes the Air Combat Academy. Finally, it’s interesting to note that a few locations in-game aren’t exactly where they are in the real world – but they’re often quite close. 

Without any further ado, here’s our suggestion for your next vacation.

First Stop: Colorado Springs

Fly or drive into Colorado Springs and set aside a few days to explore. In the game, Colorado Springs sits near where Aloy grew up, and squarely under the view of the Nora tribe. In the real world, the city and its environs offers plenty to discover, including the nearby Garden of the Gods, Pike’s Peak, and the Ute Valley Park. You can also head over to one of the game’s other vantage points, the Pioneers Museum (named the Explorer Museum in the game), which highlights the history of the region. 

Second Stop: Air Force Academy

While making your way north from Colorado Springs, plan a stop at the U.S. Air Force Academy, which allows visitors to tour its campus. In the game, this locale serves as a hub for the military during the days before the collapse of civilization, but in the real world it remains a preeminent educational institution for Air Force cadets. 

Third Stop: Denver

In Aloy’s world, approximately 1,000 years in the future, Denver has been overrun by both nature and machines, and its once towering buildings mostly destroyed. Today, Denver makes for a great urban stop in your cross-country vacation, including a great zoo, art museum, and certainly a stop at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science; the dinosaur fossil displays there should bring back memories of fighting Thunderjaws in the game. Try to catch a game at one Denver's sports arenas in honor of the in-game vantage point of Denver Stadium.

Fourth Stop: Red Rock Ampitheater

This locale carries a different name in the game, but there’s no mistaking the sloped outdoor seating of this famous concert site. In the game, this locale is a corrupted zone, dominated by red-tinged dinosaur-like machines. In the real-world, there are lots of reasons to make a stop after you’re finished exploring Denver’s interior. Beyond the opportunity to catch a show on the big stage, the surrounding areas offer ample opportunities for hiking through sandstone cliffs. 

Next Page: Continue your vacation west as you cross the mountains into Utah. 

Fifth Stop: Bridal Veil Falls

You’ve got a long but gorgeous drive through national forests and mountain highways along the way to your next official stop. There are plenty of reasons to pause and enjoy the scenery along the way, but definitely make time to investigate Bridal Veil Falls, one of the most identifiable locations in the actual game. Visit this location in Horizon to wipe out the Two-Teeth Bandit Camp that has taken hold at the top of the Falls. In the real world, you can get a glimpse of the tallest free-falling waterfall in the state, and enjoy plenty of biking and walking through the area in and around the box canyon that houses Telluride, CO.

Sixth Stop: Monument Valley 

In Aloy’s distant future, Monument Valley sits near the settlement of Sunstone Rock, and not far from a particularly momentous Thunderjaw encounter for anyone who got involved with the Hunter’s Lodge side quests. In the real world, Monument Valley is the virtual definition of the “Old West,” as defined by numerous Western movies over the years. In addition to beautiful views of the sandstone buttes, you can take guided tours from the Navajo tour operators to learn more about the history of the surrounding land. 

Seventh Stop: Lake Powell

Continue west to visit Lake Powell. It’s just north of here that Aloy tracks down one of the last of the Tallneck machines, and climbs to its head to get a view of the surrounding landscape. In your real-world road trip, Lake Powell is a wildly popular vacation destination. We recommend indulging in boating, waterskiing, and climbing amid the red rocks, and don’t forget to set aside time for a visit to the Rainbow Bridge stone formation; we’re not sure, but we suspect that thein-game settlement of Blazon Arch might be an allusion to this famous natural site. 

Next Page: Visit the real world site of Meridian, and go to Utah's tallest mountain.

Eighth Stop: Bryce Canyon

We won’t spoil here what happens at the Bryce Orbital station in the game, other than to say that many of Aloy’s questions begin to get answers at the ancient facility. Head to Bryce Canyon National Park in the real world to visit the largest collection of Hoodoos (those singular pillars of rock left behind by erosion) in the entire world. Hiking, star gazing, and horseback riding would keep you busy for a couple of blissful days as you make your way around the area.

Ninth Stop: Eagle Canyon

As you travel north, it’s worth a stop at Eagle Canyon for some off-roading and canyoneering. In the game, the Eagle Canyon vantage point offers a view of one of the game’s most important sites – the city of Meridian. The deep canyon provides a remarkable hike, and from its depths you can spy the bridges of I-70 crossing high above, much like the bridges that interconnect the different rocks of Meridian in Horizon.

Tenth Stop: Ashley National Forest and King’s Peak

Aloy has a tough climb in front of her to reach King’s Peak, and the ancient facility nearby is one of the most important plot locales in a later mission. The snowy and remote location is based on the tallest mountain in Utah, and adventurous travelers can take the long hike to its summit. If that lengthy climb isn’t for you, the surrounding Ashley National Forest provides more than enough adventure. You can take advantage of various sites for ATV or snowmobile exploration (depending on the season), or set up to camp for a few days. The area is also a well-known fishing destination. And while the fictional Horizon future does have a few animals to spy on, the real-world location offers the chance to see everything from elk and moose to bighorn sheep and mountain goats. 

Have you been enjoying Horizon’s gorgeous natural locales? Share your favorite spots in the game in the comments below. And, of course, email and let us to know if you decide to take some or all the road trip we’re recommending above. We’d love to hear about your experience!

The makers recently announced the new game, Horizon The FGorbidden West to be released for the next generation consoles. Similarly, other games like Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Gran Turismo 7, Returnal and Sackboy A Big Adventure were also announced to be released soon. Currently, the gaming community is waiting for the next generation consoles to be released soon. Here are some details about PS5.  

More about upcoming gaming console, PS5

A number of gamers have also been asking about the upcoming  PS5. There has been a lot of information about the same on the internet and it suggests that the price could range anywhere around  $500 for the blu-ray drive version and $450 for the All Digital edition. That transforms to ₹ 37,300 and ₹ 33,500 respectively when directly converted.

But after looking at the last console’s pricing range, this isn’t the price we should judge the PS 5 on. This is because the PS4 launched in 2013  was $399. In 2013,  $399 was about ₹24,000 when converted directly. But when the PS4 was launched in India it was for ₹ 39,999. This is because of the inclusion of taxes and import duties. Thus it could be safe to consider ₹50,000 as the estimated price for PS5.

Horizon Zero Dawn vantage points - all the locations you need to visit

Horizon Zero Dawn vantage points can be found at various places around the map, and interacting with them allows you to take a peek back in time to how the world was before the machines took over. Once you've discovered each of these locations in Horizon Zero Dawn, you often (but not always) need to take on a climbing challenge in order to scale the summit, at which point your Focus can access recordings that reveal what the surroundings looked like before everything went wrong. These memories were documented by a mysterious character, who toured all of the Horizon Zero Dawn vantage points to say goodbye as the world collapsed around him.

However, the Horizon Zero Dawn vantage points are not always easy to find. Handholds hide beneath vines. Ledges to haul yourself up merge into the cliff-face, their white outlines barely visible. So to help out all of you who want to have Aloy scampering up towering structures we’ve hunted down all 12 Horizon Zero Dawn vantage point locations. Now you can learn exactly where they’re hiding and climb as high as a Stormbird to hunt them down.

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points map

One thing that will make your life a lot easier is getting the Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage point map. It will highlight the general area of each vantage point so you at least know where to look, although you'll still have to do some poking around to zero in. Once you've finished the opening Proving mission you should be able to get one from the first merchant you find, so buy it and narrow down your options. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 1 - Air Combat Academy

The first vantage point you'll find is on a small mountain near the main Embrace gate on the south east corner of the map. This one's basically a freebie as you can almost walk up, with only a few ledges to scale. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 2 - Colorado Springs

Head to Devil's Thirst on the east of the map for the second Horizon Zero Dawn vantage point. In this collection of ruined structures you should find a large building with yellow hand holds on the west side you can use to climb up, and into the structure. Inside you'll see a distant yellow ledge you'll need to sprint jump to reach and another series of yellow hand holds that will take you to the roof and vantage point. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 3 - Explorer Museum

This this Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage point is north from Devil's Thirst on a small rock pillar between the forest and the river. It's right on the boundary between living trees and burned stumps, near a bridge and a camp. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 4 - Denver Stadium

This Horizon Zero Dawn vantage point is on the east side of the map just past another area of ruined buildings called Devil's Grief. Look for a large square building with a big hole blown through the base and a camp fire on the inside. You should see some torches on a ledge lighting up some climbing hand holds. Follow those up, inside the building to reach the vantage point. This one can be a bit tricky as it's very dark so you'll have to look carefully for climbing holds indicating the route.  

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 5 - Bridal Veil Falls

Horizon Zero Dawn vantage point 5 is west of the last location, near the ravine heading to Daytower if you're coming from the south. It's part way up one side of the mountain walls on the west side. You should be able to see a supply crate if you look over the mountain side with your Focus. Once you find a few handholds it's just a case of working your way up.

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 6 - Sterling-Malkeet Amphitheater

You'll find this Horizon Zero Dawn vantage point west of Devil's Grief in a corrupted zone. It's out in the open south of the camp fire so you'll either have to clear out all the robots, or sneak in to grab it. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 7 - Eagle Canyon

You'll find Vantage Point 7 if you head south along the main path to Meridian. Look to the west as you approach and you should see an outcrop with a branch/rappel point sticking out. Find the white hand holds and follow them up to reach it (some of the hand holds are small so you might have to look a little harder for them). 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 8 - Faro Automated Solutions

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage point 8 is located south of Makers's End on the north western edge of the map. Follow the path south, up the hill, from the Shell-Walker marker and you'll see a stone pillar with another branch/rappel point. Head under the branch to find the first hand hold and then climb up to reach the vantage point.  

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 9 - King's Peak

You'll approach the general area for this vantage point during a late stage quest. It's a high level area full of Stormbirds - one of which you'll have to fight to proceed, so not somewhere you want to run into until you're a little stronger. It's in the northern most center point on the map and involved a length, multistage climb to the very summit of the mountain. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 10 - Lake Powell

This is south east of the Rustwash Tallneck, near a Glinthawk machine site. If you come at the marker from the north you'll be able to drop down to a plateau where you should see a rock formation with a rappel point branch you can reach via a tightrope. Follow the hand holds at the end and climb up to claim it. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 11 - Bryce Orbital

This Horizon Zero Dawn vantage point is east of Sunfall and easy to get. Just head to the marker from the city and go around the mountain to approach it from behind, where you can run up the hillside and almost walk up. There will be scrappers at the top to deal with though so be ready for a fight. 

Horizon Zero Dawn Vantage Points 12 - Monument Valley

This vantage point is on the south western most part of the map, near Sunstone Rock settlement. Face the entrance to the settlement and look to the left of the walls to find some ledges you can climb. Keep climbing and following them up to a zipline and you'll reach it.
