Will Horizon Zero Dawn for PC include the expansion pack ‘The Frozen Wilds’?

In terms of tech, Horizon Zero Dawn will support NVIDIA Ansel and also Ultrawide resolutions. The game will also feature the exact engaging open-world experience of the original PlayStation 4 release.

Game Buildup:

Horizon Zero Dawn is a vivid expression of what can be called an exceptionally designed open world. It doesn’t end there. It also has excellent characterization and an original story that doesn’t coax elements, allowing for a more fluid growth of characters.

I can say this is a game with little to no faults except the adaptation of some elements from other open-world games. Still, it created every element on its own in one of the best games to date.

Speaking of which, the new expansion ‘Frozen Wild’ kicks off with new enemies, a new area and more:

With a new focused story, a harshly beautiful new area, new weapons, enemies and skills, The Frozen Wilds is a good expansion of the open-world game developed by Guerrilla Games. Ultimately, it’s more of the same, as the expansion lacks any major new gameplay mechanics, but when so much love is put into a product, is it really an issue? Highly recommended to all Horizon Zero Dawn owners.

Horizon Zero Dawn PC will drop on August 7th.
