Wondering how you can start Horizon Forbidden West DLC, The Burning Shores? Then keep reading below for all the steps on playing the new HFW DLC. While it is quite easy to start The Burning Shores, it can be confusing for some players since you need to fulfill certain conditions. So if you are excited to continue further in the HFW storyline, we recommend you check out this guide and complete all the necessary criteria.
How to Start The Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West
One of the most important factors to start the Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores DLC is to complete the last main storyline quest, which is Singularity. If you don’t have a saved file from when you complete Singularity, you won’t be able to continue with the HFW DLC. Once you have downloaded and installed the new DLC, you will have to load up the saved game and then you will get a screen welcoming you to The Burning Shores.
Do note that the DLC is only available on PlayStation 5 so if you are playing on PlayStation 4, you won’t have access to the DLC right now. Once you close the welcome screen, you will be contacted by Sylvens who will ask you to meet him at Tilda’s Mansion. The mansion is close to the Zenith base and you can find Sylvens on the back balcony.
While at this location, Sylvens will warn Aloy about a mysterious new Zenith that is down there in Burning Shores. Once you select the prompt to end the conversation, you will then be able to transport to Burning Shores. This will start your journey in the new HFW DLC.
