Guerrilla’s Horizon Forbidden West is getting an expansion in 2023, but it will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Burning Shores will see protagonist Alloy “pursue a sinister threat in the untamed wilds of Los Angeles, now a treacherous volcanic archipelago,” game director Mathijs de Jonge shared in a PlayStation blog post.
Horizon Forbidden West was released for PS4 and PS5 in February, but the expansion will only be playable on a PS5. De Jonge says the decision to have Burning Shores as a PS5 exclusive was made to achieve its “grand vision technically and creatively.”
In Burning Shores, Alloy will explore the ruins of Los Angeles – “an overgrown and fractured city that can be fully explored via the water and flying on the back of a Sunwing.” Alloy must overcome the threat of machines by using her skills and abilities.
Burning Shores expansion comes to the PlayStation 5 on April 19, 2023.
