Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds Out November 7

New adventures are coming to the world of Horizon. Here's how to find them.

We’re thrilled to announce that Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds is out November 7 at PlayStation Store! This expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn adds a companion story to Aloy’s adventure, leading her deep into the icy borderlands of the Banuk tribe. To celebrate the launch, we’ve prepared an exciting new trailer that shows the dangers Aloy will be facing.

Naturally, we can’t wait for you to dive into the new expansion content — and since you’re probably as eager as we are, we’ve collected a few handy tips to put you on the right track:

1.) Load Your Latest Save
You don’t need to start a brand-new game just to access Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds. The expansion content is available regardless of whether you’re on your very first playthrough or on your latest New Game+.

2.) Check Your Level
We tuned Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds for players with an experience level of 30 or higher. While it’s possible to access the expansion content if your level is below this threshold, you may find that Aloy’s lack of skills and/or equipment becomes too great a challenge. If that’s the case, try completing a few quests in the base game until you’ve sufficiently leveled up.

3.) Complete the Quest “A Seeker at the Gates”
Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds adds a whole new region known as The Cut, which becomes accessible after you’ve completed the quest A Seeker at the Gates. If you’re at level 30 you most likely already completed this quest, but if you’re not sure you can check its completion status in the Quests menu.

4.) Find a Quest-Giver
To receive directions to the new region known as The Cut, speak with one of the three quest-givers added to the base game region. These quest-givers appear with a blue quest start marker over their head. They’re located in the following areas:

  • Rhavid, a Carja nobleman with information and speculation about the Banuk borderlands, can be found outside Meridian.
  • Ohtur, who knows how to get to The Cut, can be found inside the Carja border fort known as Daytower.
  • Yariki, a Banuk woman with a dire warning about the dangers found in the borderlands, can be found north of the Grave Hoard.

5.) Survive the Frozen Wilds
Between the inhospitable environment and the dangerous new machines, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds offers a greater challenge than the base game — so make sure you bring the right skills, outfits, and weapons.

Above all, we hope you have as much fun diving back into the world of Aloy as we did creating this expansion! Let us know what you think in the comments.

Had no idea this was coming out tomorrow until my PS4 started auto downloading it last night, very excited to jump back in, I practiced getting back into the combat by killing a few Thunderjaw last night. Such good combat.

I’ve completed New Game+ on Ultra-Hard mode and currently on it’s free roam (which I can’t change the difficulty). Does this mean that I’ll have to play this DLC on Ultra-hard mode or do I need to start another New Game+ and play all the way until ‘A seeker at the gates’ if I want to play at another difficulty?

    You could play it from your normal game mode.

    I’m playing it at Hard (whatever the second-highest setting is), and I realize how spoiled I’ve been by my shield armor. One hit from the first machine I encoutered in the new zone, and it took my shield and half my health (no potions active). Damn.

    Still tackling it on Hard, but even with Adept gear it’s tough. I’ve gotten lazy with my shield armor – have to get back to planning, dodging, and managing fights again. Some of these things are just so crazy FAST!

    In short…it’s crazy fun!

    They said all along – the Plus discount was for preorders.

    I’m looking at a graphic RIGHT NOW on this page that says “Available Now – 25% Discount for PS Plus Members” so no, it was never stated that it was preorders only.

I’m not seeing the 25% discount as a PS Plus member that is advertised everywhere.
