Guerrilla Games has announced the release of Horizon Zero Dawn update 1.42, which adds a number of improvements for the game’s downloadable content pack, The Frozen Wilds.

The Frozen Wilds includes a wealth of content for the critically acclaimed open-world adventure game, including a brand new, chilly setting, additional missions and all-new characters to get acquainted with. The DLC launched earlier this week.

• Fixed combat balance issues for some players in the quest storyline of ‘The Frozen Wilds’ expansion.

• General improvements for ‘The Frozen Wilds’ expansion.


• Rebalanced the encounter with the three Frostclaws during the quest ‘For The Werak’. The damage done by the Frostclaws depends on how many Frostclaws are left during the encounter.

• Rebalanced the encounter with the Fireclaw during the quest ‘The Forge of Winter’.

Horizon Zero Dawn launched exclusively on PlayStation 4 in late February 2017, and proved a critical and commercial success, selling over 3.4 million copies worldwide.

Guerrilla Games confirmed that The Frozen Wilds is the only slice of DLC that the game will be receiving. Presumably, it’s got its hands full working on the inevitable Horizon 2.

The Amsterdam-based studio has already hinted at several ideas for a follow-up, including the fact Aloy may not be the main protagonist.
