There’s a good chance you’ve barely scratched the surface of Horizon Forbidden West, but even if you’ve barely made it out of dare, you might be interested to know that DLC expansions could be on the way. A video posted by VSC Qualification Boardthe “statutory body that rates video games in the UK”, mentions the inclusion of an in-game online store used to purchase DLC expansions.
We double check the game’s PEGI rating and reference is made to “in-game purchases”. The full description explains: “This game offers players the opportunity to connect to its store, where they can purchase later DLC expansions, which some parents or caregivers may want to know about. Parents, caregivers or other responsible adults should verify what is 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 that there’s no in-game store available from the main menu. Presumably, that’s because Horizon Forbidden West doesn’t have any DLC available yet. So it’s probably safe to assume this will be added at a later date.
That’s not too surprising, we guess: predecessor Horizon Zero Dawn got a big 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 possible Horizon Forbidden West expansion?
