Horizon Zero Dawn is one of 2017’s best games. I was obsessed with this title and sank close to 100 hours into perfecting my robo-dino hunting skills. When developer Guerrilla Games announced that some meaty DLC was en route, I was most chuffed at the prospect of diving back into the game to continue Aloy’s epic.
Guerrilla Games has definitely delivered on the DLC front, but I kind of feel as if The Frozen Wilds is more like an expansion pack than your run-of-the-mill DLC. There’s a lot on offer here; it’s not quite as massive as CD Projekt’s gargantuan Blood and Wine expansion to The Witcher 3, but it’s way more than is the norm insofar as downloadable content goes. In that regard, The Frozen Wilds is great and definitely ticks the bang-for-your-buck checkbox, but ticking checkboxes is also possibly where it falls a little flat.
