    Just completed what I assume is the final story quest in FW dlc, still have a good amount to do. I have the game up for trade so not overly concerned if I miss a few sides, data files, flowers etc.

    What I can say is much like the original game the dlc is wonderful. Such a brilliant world, one of the most atmospheric of the open worlds I have played in.
    Just so bloody good, as a dyed in the wool Xboxer, this sort of game is the reason I will always have a Sony say next to the Xboxes.

    Oh yeah, I finished the main game yesterday, good stuff! I got the shield weave armour a couple of main quests from the end, which made them a bit trivial, but that was fine with me. Finished up with ~56 hours on the clock, at level 44. I'll get around to the DLC at some point, and I'll be there day one for a sequel.

    Really liked the bit where Aloy found Sobeck's resting place.

    I just finished the DLC after getting it for a bargain price. 100% worth it; it's a great addition to the story and actually fleshes out more of the back-story and sets things up for Horizon 2.

    The snowy landscapes are brilliant, a real contrast. Not a huge amount of new beasties, but can't grumble when I've still had a good 20-30 hours of play for about £7!

    Just started this yesterday. I think Iím getting old. Finding it pretty solid even on normal. It feels a bit less scripted than other games Iíve played previously. Where Uncharted would leave tall grass right next to enemiesí paths, you have to engineer a kill in HZD it feels like. Liking it in any case. A bit more serious than I would have liked but not sure why I would have expected anything else! Not everything is Uncharted.

    Why are all the robots so aggressive?! Playing along nicely, minding my own business, running to catch an evil scrapper that has stolen (not really) some man's spear from his late wife or some such shit, and a fucking horse charges me and kicks me to kingdom come. His/her whole herd died for his/her sins.

    Otherwise enjoying this. While it seemed pretty solid earlier on, it appears to have become much easier as I've levelled up a bit. Hopefully not too easy as I progress.

    Also, fast travel - where do I get the blasted pack? Why do they make this a pain in the arse? It's a QoL feature - just give it to me dammit.

    @The_Goon IIRC you just need to buy the fast travel backpack from one of the merchants - I don't think it's linked to the skill tree?

    I guess the robots are aggressive as the game is trying to get you to play with a degree of stealth, and it's a good habit to get into as they get bigger and nastier! But yeah, I know what you mean about wandering into herds of docile robots that then turn nasty ;-)

    I get the sense you are quite early on in the game, so I am guessing you've not unlocked the power to override robots that you sneak up on. That's a really handy skill as you can override one beast in a herd and it'll fight everything for you for as long as it's standing.

    You need to find places on the map called Cauldrons, which are mini-adventures of their own. Don't go into them under-levelled :-)

    Yeah what breakablepants says basically.

    The fast pack is something you can craft. Check your crafting menu - you'll see what you need (it's only a couple of things) and then go get them. You'll end up with quite a few in your inventory after a while and it won't be an issue.

    Haha, I like the aggressive encounter. It's like that sometimes. You can be weaving about managing the situation and then all of a sudden fucking chaos breaks out. I love it.

    You have *got* to get the override skill. It can turn the tide of any battle.

    Also, in your skill.tree there's a skill later on called tinker - that is definitely worth getting so you can custom equip your equipment with better mods as you find them.

    And yes, go visit a cauldron. Good luck :)

    The aggressiveness of the machines is a part of the story, as well as a gameplay conceit.

    Also, you need to craft the fast travel packs.

    Does the DLC add any decent story? I loved the story in the main game but by the end I had no real urge for DLC, I was done and satisfied. But now, after the abject disappointment of RDR2 being the most boring, cynical, nasty, unpleasant, tedious 'game' I've literally *ever* played, I long for more of the actual FUN that I had with Horizon.

    So, yeah, DLC story any good?

    I'm only about an hour in, and it's mainly related to the new people you meet. But it's dropping hints already about the large story, so take that how you want really
