New updates regarding the very first Horizon Zero Dawn DLC (downloadable content) now comes to light. According to reports, the expansion now has a release date. Here’s what you need to know.
Horizon Zero Dawn DLC
The game’s first DLC, called The Frozen Wilds, will see a release on November 7. Reportedly, the expansion will take place in a post-apocalyptic Wyoming. This is due to the fact that the main game occurs in the Colorado area of the Rocky Mountains.
With this into account, the Horizon Zero Dawn DLC will allow players to visit the “supervolcano” found around a breached area of Yellowstone’s ancient caldera. As to why protagonist Aloy has her eyes set on this destination, in particular, remains unknown.
Besides Aloy’s exploration, the DLC adds a new region that players will be able to exploit. Furthermore, it will feature new machines which will add another facet to the Horizon Zero Dawn gameplay.
There isn’t a lot about the Horizon Zero Dawn DLC that has been revealed just yet. Still, leaving fans hanging only adds to the growing anticipation for the expansion. Some reports believe that Guerrilla Games is withholding any more information regarding the DLC as they may aim to reveal more a little closer to the expansion’s release date. Nevertheless, The Frozen Wilds looks promising as it is. With the success of Horizon Zero Dawn, it seems unlikely that the DLC will disappoint fans.
What is Horizon Zero Dawn?
For those who may not be aware, Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game that follows main character Aloy as she makes a life amidst a post-apocalyptic world overrun by robots. Notably, Aloy grew up as an outcast. As such, she sets out to learn and discover more about the world around her.
Set approximately one thousand years in the future, Horizon Zero Dawn boasts of an open world environment that players can explore as Aloy. Additionally, taking down the mechanical creatures in the world allows players to scavenge their remains and utilize them as a means of resources. Interestingly, the game features different contraptions and machines that can be utilized as part of gameplay. Furthermore, weapons can be modified in order to deal more damage.
The game was first released around early 2017. It has since received critical acclaim and ultimately became the biggest debut of Guerrilla Games to date. It is now the second best-selling PS4 video game — just behind Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End — at 3.4 million copies sold.
