Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds Will Bring New Challenges For Aloy

The first expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn has finally been unveiled by Sony and Guerrilla Games, just a few months after the beloved open-world game stormed onto PlayStation 4. And it looks like warmer clothes are going to be in order when Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds sends Aloy to the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

Details were scarce in the first trailer for the Horizon Zero Dawn expansion. That said, we do know Aloy will return to the spotlight, and it looks like she’ll be hiking deep into the Rockies. There’s at least one new tribe to meet and new robots to square off against. We don’t know yet what challenges the expansion’s wintery climate will present but it’s probably safe to assume Aloy will move a little slower if/when she’s moving through deep snow. And don’t be surprised if ice damage is a little more common (and fire damage more effective) in The Frozen Wilds .

There are still plenty of unanswered questions. We don’t know why Aloy made the trek north or what’s causing smoke to belch out of the mountain shown in the expansion’s first trailer. We don’t know whether or not the tribe shown in the Frozen Wilds teaser will be friendly, or how many new robots will stand between Aloy and her goal(s). But we’ll be counting the minutes until the next time Sony gives us a look at the first Horizon Zero Dawn expansion.

For an early look at Horizon Zero Dawn ’s first batch of downloadable content, take a few minutes to check out the Frozen Wilds trailer that debuted during PlayStation Live 2017. Then head down to the comments section and let us know if you’re planning to explore the Frozen Wilds when the first Horizon Zero Dawn DLC debuts next year.

Horizon Zero Dawn is currently available for PlayStation 4. The game’s first expansion, The Frozen Wilds , doesn’t have a release date yet.
