Guerrilla Games has announced Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores, an expansion for the 2022 action-adventure game that will see Aloy pursuing a sinister threat in the untamed wilds of Los Angeles, now a treacherous volcanic archipelago, set for release on PlayStation 5 consoles on April 19, 2023.

“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!” said Mathijs de Jonge, Game Director at Guerrilla.

A trailer and key art for the Burning Shores expansion can confirm that players will be able to visit a post-apocalyptic version of the Hollywood Sign, the landmark that can be found on Mount Lee in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.

“Our creative vision for the Burning Shores is an ambitious expansion which will take Aloy to the ruins of Los Angeles,” de Jonge explained. “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.”

Burning Shores marks the second expansion for the Horizon franchise, with Horizon Zero Dawn having received an expansion in the form of The Frozen Wilds on November 7, 2017.

Horizon Call of the Mountain, a brand-new experience set in the world of Horizon for PS VR2, will be released in February 2023.
