Horizon Zero Dawn has proven very successful, and one of this years biggest and best releases so far, and last week at Sony’s E3 press conference a DLC for the game was one of the more exciting announcements made. The DLC, called The Frozen Wilds, was announced to be coming at some point this year, and will feature an entirely new landscape, with new missions to tackle, enemies to fight, and characters to meet – if the trailer can tell us anything. Up until now, we didn’t know how much it was going to cost, but a listing on the PS Store confirms that it’ll cost $14.99 for PS Plus Members and $19.99 for everyone else. Of course, this isn’t the confirmed price just yet, but there’s a good chance it won’t budge.
Also on the listing is a release date of December 31, but this is just a placeholder date – DLC is expected to come out much sooner. It’s also given us a little more insight as to what we can expect: “Beyond the northern mountains, the borderlands of the Banuk tribe challenge all who dare enter to survive the extremes.” The listing reads. “But now this frozen wilderness harbors a new threat, and for Aloy, a new mystery – one she’s determined to solve.” This new area will surely add so much more to the already vast and interesting world of Horizon Zero Dawn, and these snowy plains look like they’ll perfect for Aloy to explore, giving her many opportunities to survive and thrive. The price for the amount of content we’re expecting is pretty good, too – a whole new area and story, for $15? Sign me up.
E3 2017 is beginning to wrap up now, but don’t expect the fun to end; there’s every chance we’ll still see a surprise announcement or showing before the end. Stay tuned – Twinfinite will update you with anything new!
