There’s a strong chance you’ve barely scratched the surface of Horizon Forbidden West, but even if you’ve barely made it out of The Daunt, you may be interested to learn that DLC expansions could be on the way. A video published by VSC Rating Board, the “statutory body which rates video games in the UK”, mentions the inclusion of an online storefront in the game used to purchase DLC expansions.
We double-checked the game’s PEGI rating and “in-game purchases” are referenced. The full description explains: “This game offers players the opportunity to connect to their storefront, where they can purchase subsequent DLC expansions, which some parents or carers may want to be aware of. Parents, carers, or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child. It should be noted that the game can still be played without the need to purchase such items.”
Of course, if you’ve played the game, you’ll already know there’s no in-game storefront available from the main menu. That’s presumably because Horizon Forbidden West doesn’t actually have any DLC available yet. Therefore, it’s probably safe to assume that this will be added at a later date.
It’s not overly surprising, we suppose: predecessor Horizon Zero Dawn got a major expansion in the form of Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, so we suspect something similar will be planned here. Is there anything in particular you’d like to experience in a potential Horizon Forbidden West expansion?
