Horizon Forbidden West, although slightly overshadowed by the other big releases of the year 2022 (it came out a week before Elden Ring), is certainly one of the best open-world games ever made. The huge living world of Forbidden West far surpassed its predecessor and many other action adventures, introducing more meaning into secondary content and extracting the maximum from the classic open-world formula.
That is exactly why we are very excited for the Burning Shores, the big upcoming expansion for Forbidden West, which should bring even more depth to this great title with completely new territories to explore and a direct continuation of the story! The expansion arrives only on PlayStation 5 on April 19, 2023, but you can place a pre-order today and grab some interesting bonuses – let’s check them out.
Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores Pre-Order Bonuses – Listed
If you pre-order Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores DLC you will get these two Blacktide bonus items:
- Blacktide Dye Outfit
- Blacktide Sharpshot Bow
These pre-order bonus items will be claimable in-game: the Blacktide Dye Outfit can be picked up at the first dye merchant, and the Blacktide Sharpshot Bow will be available at the first merchant in the Burning Shores region.

As you probably noticed, Burning Shores is a Post-Game Expansion, meaning that, unlike The Frozen Wilds for Horizon Zero Dawn, it does not fit into the story before the end of the game, but continues it. Because of this, in order to get to the Burning Shores content, you will need to have completely finished the story in Forbidden West.
If you have already completed the original game at the beginning of Burning Shores, Aloy will receive a call on her focus that will kickstart a new story, and as soon as the new content starts, if you pre-ordered, you will be able to equip yourself with Blacktide gear and set off on your way to the Burning Shores of Hollywood!
