November 26, 2017Written by Zarmena Khan

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds recently received the Digital Foundry treatment, and came out with some impressive results. From new snow deformation technology to incredible lighting effects, Guerrilla’s Decima engine truly shines when it comes to showing off the expansion’s environments and weather systems.

Check out a detailed analysis in the video above.

In an accompanying write-up, Digital Foundry claims that The Frozen Wilds is “one of the most impressive 4K HDR experiences” out there, and players are in for a treat regardless of whether they’re playing on the base PlayStation 4 or PS4 Pro. The team further wrote:

There’s the sense that the artists and designers have been unleashed to create one of the most striking open world environments you can experience. Everything from the density per scene, the choice of colour, the fluidity of the animation and volume of assets really impresses here. We’ve seen a lot of large, open-ended games this year but it’s clear that Guerrilla Games stands at the top of the industry with its efforts. Even with the growing sense of open world fatigue, we found that the world and lore was interesting enough to carry us through the game, while the quality of these visuals and the solidity of the presentation is unparalleled.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds is out now for PS4.
