When fans first saw Guerrilla Games’ Horizon: Zero Dawn, they were impressed, but not sure of what to make of it. Fast forward to February when it launched and it not only wowed players and critics alike with its unique take on a sci-fi fantasy world with primitive people and weapons (to start), but it quickly earned many accolades, including being the second best selling game on PS4. Fans became enamored with main character Aloy, and wanted to have more adventures with her. Well, now they’re going to get the chance.
For at the Sony E3 Press Conference, the first DLC for the game was revealed in the form of The Frozen Wilds, and it will indeed star Aloy once again as she goes on a new dangerous adventure.
Set in the area beyond the mountains to the north, The Frozen Wilds is home to the Banuk tribe. They stand guard and challenge any who would go past the line that separates the cold from the frozen. But something is happening in the Frozen Wilds, a new danger is arriving, and Aloy is determined to not only find it, but solve what it means for the world at large.
This is a completely new adventure, entirely separate from the main storyline of Horizon: Zero Dawn. To that end, The Frozen Wilds will have an all-new storyline, new quests, new characters for you to meet, and an all-new area for you to explore. But within this area are all-new machines that you’ve never faced before. Aloy must be ready for what awaits her, else, she’ll become another frozen monument in this cold wasteland.
Add to all of that, the PS4 Pro version of The Frozen Wilds will have 4k graphics and gaming, using the console to its full potential to deliver a truly beautiful experience. The DLC is set to arrive later this year.
