Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games announced the Burning Shores expansion for Horizon Forbidden West launches April 19, 2023 for PlayStation 5. The expansion will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5 version.
The full announcement is available below via PlayStation Blog:
Today we’re thrilled to announce Burning Shores, our expansion to Horizon Forbidden West which sees Aloy pursue a sinister threat in the untamed wilds of Los Angeles, now a treacherous volcanic archipelago.
She will be traveling to a dangerous new region south of the Tenakth Clan Lands, featuring a compelling storyline following from where Horizon Forbidden West ended, new characters, adventures, and more – some details which we look forward to sharing with you very soon!
Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores is coming to PlayStation 5 consoles on April 19, 2023.
Our creative vision for the Burning Shores is an ambitious expansion which will take Aloy to the ruins of Los Angeles. It’s an overgrown and fractured city that can be fully explored via the water and flying on the back of a Sunwing. A massive machine threat lurks in its shadows – a huge challenge that Aloy must overcome by using all of her skills and abilities. To achieve this grand vision technically and creatively, we’ve made the difficult decision to focus all our efforts on making an incredible experience exclusively for the PlayStation 5 console.
Thanks again to all our amazing fans for your love and support! We look forward to sharing more with you very soon.
-Mathijs de Jonge, game director at Guerrilla Games.
