Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the best games to launch for PS4 this year and an expansion “The Frozen Wilds” will launch later this year. However, Guerrilla Games has not forgotten about the base game and has been supporting with new updates that bring new content and fixes. Now, the studio has rolled out Horizon Zero Dawn patch 1.30 that brings New Game+ mode and more.
According to Guerrilla Games, Horizon Zero Dawn patch 1.30 includes “additional fixes to progression issues which some of you may have encountered.” The update also brings the New Game+ mode to the game that comes with two new trophies and extra unlockable content. The update also brings updated versions of existing weapons and outfits.
With New Game+ you will be able to relive the adventures of Aloy without losing your character progression and your collected inventory. You won’t be able to progress beyond the level cap of 50, but you can still collect XP during your adventure.
We have also added updated versions of existing weapons and outfits with an extra modification slot at your disposal. These will not come cheap and will set you back some extra shards.
The update also introduces Ultra Hard Difficulty to the game. “This new setting will enhance machine senses and behavior and will limit player health regen and other additional smaller tweaks. Players who decide to embark on the Ultra Hard path will not have the option to switch it to a less difficult setting.”
In related news, Guerrilla Games has also explained why there is no romance in Horizon Zero Dwan. According to Guerrilla Games, the reason there is no romance for Aloy in Horizon: Zero Dawn is that she does not really need one.
Horizon Zero Dawn The Frozen Wilds expansion is currently in development at Guerrilla Games and will launch later this year but no exact release date has been announced.
