Horizon Forbidden West's PS5 Exclusive DLC Has Another Staggering Settlement to Explore 1

One of the strengths of sequel Horizon Forbidden West, despite not being mentioned too much, are its achingly beautiful settlements. They may lack interactivity, but they’re outstanding areas to simply explore, bursting with environmental storytelling that reveal more about the lifestyles of the clans that inhabit them.

Burning Shores, the upcoming PS5 exclusive expansion for the release, will include a new town for you to tour: Fleet’s End, the home of the Quen. “The Quen that ended up in the Burning Shores have been here for some time,” a social media post starts, “and while survival has been a constant challenge, they’ve managed to establish an impressive settlement.”

This place looks absolutely enormous, as it’s flanked by ancient ruins and shipwrecks. Those who’ve played Horizon Forbidden West will know that the Quen are informed by knowledge of the Old World, although their access to information is curtailed, and they’ve come to worship the CEOs and business tycoons of the 21st century. We anticipate this will prove pivotal to the plot of the DLC.

Aloy will also work with a new Quen character named Seyka when she arrives in the Burning Shores, as pictured in the key art embedded above: “She’s an ambitious marine who has stepped up to help her people survive,” lead writer Annie Kitain explained on the PS Blog. “As a new companion for the DLC, Aloy will spend a lot of time with her throughout the story and rely on her help in many situations – a position she doesn’t often find herself in. Confident, compassionate, and fierce, Seyka’s quite unlike anyone Aloy has ever encountered, and she plays an important role in the next chapter of Aloy’s journey.”
