Players from all over the world are exploring new lands with the release today of Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores. The first expansion for the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn adds new territories for Aloy to explore in the continuation of her epic adventure. a new storyline, new friends, gigantic robots to fight, and even a flying mount that will let you soar through a beautiful sky are available to all players who own the expansion starting today. Developer Guerrilla Games has delved into the details of Burning Shores ahead of release, showing new gameplay mechanics and iterations and impressive footage, but it still manages to surprise us with the depth of some features that they have implemented in the game.



Too real for some people

In the case of Horizon Forbidden West, its awesome level of detail may be a problem for some people. Underwater action has been present in the game from the start, and the release of Burning Shores will offer you more of that, as the once bustling city of Los Angeles, which lies to the south of lands, has been turned into a volcanic archipelago partially covered by water. This surely brings new opportunities for underwater adventures but, what if you have a problem with that? People with thalassophobia could have a hard time with Horizon Forbidden West, as their fear prevents them from enjoying that side of the game. The guys at Guerrilla Games want that their game can be enjoyed by as many people as possible and the game features an impressive range of accessibility options in order to achieve that goal. they are expanding these further with the addition of a new mode specifically designed for people terrified of deep water.

“This feature aims to ease thalassophobia symptoms by improving underwater ambient visibility and allowing you to breathe indefinitely, regardless of story progression.”

Therefore, if your thalassophobia was preventing you from accompanying Aloy on her latest journey, you can rest assured that the new accessibility patch has you covered. Patch 1.21 also adds other accessibility options, like enlarged subtitles, color blindness settings, and more. Unfortunately, those features are exclusive to PlayStation 5 users.
