During the PlayStation Live broadcast from the show floor at E3 2017 in Los Angeles, Sony and Guerrilla Games General Manager Hermen Hulst talked about Horizon Zero Dawn‘s upcoming DLC The Frozen Wilds.
Hulst mentioned that the content is “very chunky”including a new territory across the northern mountains. While he can’t give precise details on hours of gameplay, he explained that it’s “very beefy” with a “good sized map.”
There will be new quests, challenges and settlements for Aloy to explore, new weapons and more. On top of that, it’ll also provide a new set of trophies.
The DLC will “continue Aloy’s journey” and will be a “new chapter” story-wise, as she unravel some deep, dark secrets.
Hulst also explained why Guerrilla Games decided to make the DLC. From a development perspective, after finishing the game you have all the tools and knowledge in place, and you just want to do more. On top of that, there are many fans who want more as well.
