Sony announces Horizon Forbidden West expansion, Burning Shores, launching next April.
Sony revealed at The Game Awards that Aloy would be traveling to Hollywood in an upcoming expansion for the single-player action-adventure game Horizon: Forbidden West. The PS4 will unfortunately, be left out this time as this expansion will only be available on the PlayStation 5.
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.

The trailer gives viewers a glimpse of Los Angeles by showing the Hollywood sign being destroyed by a robot. Aloy has previously explored Las Vegas and San Francisco in their post-apocalyptic states. The trailer is linked down below.
The LA region has turned into a volcanic island, and the DLC has Aloy pursuing a “sinister threat.” Featuring a compelling storyline continuing from where Horizon: Forbidden West left off, new characters, adventures, and more, this story takes place in a perilous new region to the south of the Tenakth Clan Lands.
Forbidden West is the long-awaited sequel to the video game Horizon: Zero Dawn, which was released in 2017. The game featured the return of the game’s protagonist, Alloy, as she explored what is referred to as “the forbidden west,” which includes run-down versions of cities such as Las Vegas and San Francisco.
Developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games, Horizon: Forbidden West DLC Burning Shores will be available on April 19, 2023 for PlayStation 5.
