Sony has announced the highly anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn: Frozen Wilds, as the first expansion of the PlayStation 4 exclusive. Not much was shown, but it will keep Alloy as the game’s lead and introduce some new areas to explore. Robotic monsters not seen in the first game will also be making an appearance, so that should be fun.
Guerilla Games teased a story expansion pack before, when they posted a job opening for animal-like movements for a game. The main campaign ended with a cliffhanger, so the additional DLC could give fans the real conclusion they desire. Though it’s not yet clear if the expansion takes place before or after the events of the main game. Unfortunately, only a vague 2017 release date was given, so fans will have to wait for additional information from Guerilla Games and Sony.
The First and Only?
Horizon Zero Dawn: Frozen Wilds is the game’s first expansion, and it could be the last one as well. Unlike most AAA games, the title doesn’t have a season pass fans can get for additional content and levels. It’s a nice change of pace from most games and should give fans plenty of bang for their buck, assuming it’s long and nice.
Despite the amount of standalone expansions coming, like Uncharted Lost Legacy and Dishonored Death of the Outsider, there are high expectations from this Horizon DLC. Of course, the main game was already loved by many, thanks to its gorgeous visuals, a great story, and addictive open-world gameplay. If Guerilla can make the game as good as the original, fans will love the expansion pack wholeheartedly.
Currently, there is no release date or window for Horizon Zero Dawn: Frozen Wilds. The main game can be bought now, only on PS4.
