For even more on the expansion, check out our Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds review. Here’s what reviewer Paulmichael Contreras had to say:
Some people were thrown off by Horizon Zero Dawn’s less-than-stellar facial animation and animation during cutscenes or while talking to NPCs. Well, happily, things have notably improved in both areas. Although what was already in the base game has not changed, all new missions in the expansion feature much more believable movements of NPCs, and a camera that follows them as they walk around, their hands moving in gestures that make more sense given the context of what they are saying at the moment. It’s a subtle difference, but a marked improvement. It will make going back to regular, non-expansion missions a bit of a jarring experience, which is an odd side effect.
Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds is everything DLC is supposed to be. The wonderful playground we last saw Aloy in is expanded by an impressively large, immaculately detailed, diverse landscape. Like the base game before it, this is a tough area that almost everyone will enjoy exploring. Yet for those who hate open-ended games, fast travel points and simple navigation can keep you on the beaten path, if desired. With more content in this fantastic expansion than other entire games, The Frozen Wilds is a must-buy, can’t-miss experience.
The Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is available now.
