Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds DLC is released on PS4, getting a new launch trailer to celebrate. The new expansion adds additional story content to the open-world RPG, as well as a new area to explore and new machines to battle too.
A PS4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn has already proved to be a huge success, selling over 2.5 million copies.
Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds Details, Launch Trailer
In the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds DLC, players follow female protagonist Aloy as she ventures north, beyond the mountains, to meet with the Banuk tribe. This new area is called The Cut, and the “frozen wilderness harbors a new threat, and for Aloy, a new mystery – one she’s determined to solve,” explains the official description for the expansion pack.
Designed for Horizon Zero Dawn players who have reached level 30, the expansion is only accessible after the ‘Seeker at the Gates’ mission has been completed. It’s very much designed as end-game content, as the expansion will add 15 hours worth of content to the game and this includes new story content.
In addition to new story content and a chance to learn more about the Banuk tribe, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds will also introduce a brand new machine called the Scorcher. This fearsome foe looks like the Sawtooth or the Ravager and deals devastating fire attacks. Developer Guerilla Games says that the Scorcher’s “damage output” is roughly the same as the Thunderjaw’s.
According to recent reports, The Frozen Wilds is the only downloadable content expansion being planned for Horizon Zero Dawn right now. A ‘Game of the Year’ edition of the game leaked and is set to be released in December, which seems to confirm that Guerrilla won’t be announcing any more expansions any time soon.
What’s positive at least is that Guerrilla has said that it is ‘itching’ to make more Horizon Zero Dawn – and if that doesn’t include DLC then it may include a sequel. But until then, fans will just have to enjoy The Frozen Wilds.
