Hori­zon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds

PS4, Sony, cert: 16

The Observer - The New Review - - RELEASES - Serge Pen­nings

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.
