A new version of the PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn is now available that includes the base game alongside the new Frozen Wilds DLC.
The release of the Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition was hinted at back in October when a Game of the Year version was spotted through a retailer, but it was later confirmed that the Complete Edition would actually be the name of the rerelease. Horizon Zero Dawn first launched back on Feb. 28, so while it’s a quick turnaround for a game to have a “Complete” version, those who played through Horizon Zero Dawn would be hard pressed to disagree with the decision after seeing how impressive the game is.
The Frozen Wilds DLC that’s included with the Complete Edition is likely the most compelling reason for a PS4 gamer to pick up a copy of the new version of Horizon Zero Dawn whether it’s because you’re playing it for the first time or traded in your copy after beating it. The new DLC is geared towards players that around level 30 or above, so you might have to stick with the game for a while before jumping into the expansion, but you’ll be exploring the frigid wilderness in no time if you stick with the game.
Also included in the Complete Edition are several changes that were recently made to the base game such as the inclusion of a New Game+ mode that allows you to carry over your progression and items as you replay the story. Once you’ve beaten the story and gotten the hang of the challenges, you can also try it once again with a much harder or easier difficulty sitting to allow for a different experience. A new difficulty setting called Story is available that greatly decreases the combat challenges while allowing players to take the beautiful scenery in, but the Ultra Hard mode exists on the opposite end of the spectrum as a much more hardcore experience.
Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition is now available for the PlayStation 4 for $49.99, but you can also buy The Frozen Wilds separately for $19.99, $14.99 if you’re a PlayStation Plus member.
