Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds
PS4, Sony, cert: 16
This expansion pack for arguably the prettiest game on the PS4 is both more of the same but turned up to 11, and a patch in everything but name. The post-apocalyptic combatdriven RPG action that made Horizon
Zero Dawn such a hit earlier in the year is blessed with better lip-sync and even more beautiful graphics; some of the icy landscapes are nothing short of breathtaking.
And with a handful of brutal and cunning new robot foes, it will take significantly longer than the stated 15 hours of missions actually to get through The Frozen Wilds in one piece. Never mind Level 30 – even at Level 45 you will probably embrace the shame of dropping the difficulty setting just to progress at some points.
As to the patch part, if (finally) being able to gather provisions without constantly getting off your steed isn’t one, then I don’t know what is.
