The Burning Shores expansion is coming to PS Store tomorrow, an exciting adventure in the Horizon universe that expands the story of Horizon: Forbidden Westone of the best games of 2022 on PS5 and PS4.
The expansion features a new storyline, new characters (like Seyka), a unique mount for Aloy, and a new setting: the volcanic archipelago of Los Angeles.
However, before The Burning Shores we must highlight the release of a new patch for the Guerrilla title. PS4 players will not be able to access this updateas it prepares the game for expansion.
Horizon Forbidden West – Tráiler de Burning Shores
Patch 1.21. not only adds support for Burning Shores, but also new accessibility features for Horizon: Forbidden West and PS5.
What’s more, the Guerrilla guys have taken note in recent months, and that’s why it’s now available a mode for those people who are afraid of the ocean (or the deep sea).
Thalassophobia mode with the new patch
It cannot be denied that Horizon: Forbidden West is a very marine game. Although not all the action takes place at sea, the truth is that many of its settings take place next to the ocean… or even on the seabed.
It looks like The Burning Shores will be even more aquatic than the base game, judging by the latest update available on PS5. And it is that thalassophobia mode is now available.
What is thalassophobia? Its about irrational fear of the oceanbut also takes place in the deep sea. It is related to the fear of what lives at the bottom of the sea, and that the human being is unable to detect.
Thalassophobia is more common than it seems, and there are even people who can develop it in the course of their lives. Fortunately there is now a game mode intended for these people.
We do not know what it consists of Thalassophobia mode in Horizon: Forbidden Westalthough it sure is similar to the arachnophobia mode we saw in Grounded.
Outside of thalassophobia mode, patch 1.21. add the following news:

All these novelties (including the thalassophobia mode) are only available for the PS5 version, since The Burning Shores will not be released on PS4. The reason? This DLC incorporates new technical details that are not possible on the old-gen console from Sony.
Horizon: Forbidden West is available from February 2022 on PS5 and PS4. Regarding the expansion The Burning Shores, arrives tomorrow at PS Store (exclusively for PS5) at a recommended price of 19.99 euros.
