Horizon’s Frozen Wilds DLC Launches Nov 7 While Aloy Supports Gay Pride
Horizon - Aloy Gay
(Last Updated On: September 19, 2017)

[Disclosure: The following article contains a paid promotional link]

Guerrilla Games announced over on the PlayStation Blog that Horizon: Zero Dawn’s first major DLC expansion pack, The Frozen Wilds, will launch on November 7th for the PS4 and PS4 Pro.

No information about the DLC was revealed other than what was initially revealed back during E3. Community manager Jeroen Roding simply informed gamers that the DLC will be available November 7th, 2017 for the PlayStation game consoles.

No pricing details were revealed either, and there was no mention about a season pass, indicating that there won’t be a lot of DLC to follow for Horizon: Zero Dawn.

The only thing that Roding mentioned was that those who pre-order the DLC will receive a free avatar. It’s the equivalent of getting a single free chip to play at blackjack Canada and told that you’re being done a favor.

Over on Guerrilla’s Facebook page they made it known that they were supporting the Amsterdam Gay Pride celebration. The development studio did so by posting up a fan-art drawing of Horizon’s main character, Aloy, with the Pride rainbow war paint across her face.

Not everyone was on board with having Aloy used as a sociopolitical mascot for gay pride. Some people gave Guerrilla Games props while others felt as if they could have been intentionally using Aloy to push a political agenda.

Nicolas Rovirosa checked Guerrilla, writing that they should keep focused on making “good entertainment” instead of getting caught up in political drama…

“Really wish Guerrilla would focus on making good entertainment for everyone and not get caught up in the political drama. Hopefully this won’t bleed into their future games. Regardless of people’s political views, people want to get away from politics at the end of the day, we already deal with it all day at work and in the news, pretty much everywhere.”

Juan Carlos Hidalgo Molina kept it brief, stating that hopefully Aloy doesn’t get dragged into becoming an “icon” for Pride…

“As long as Aloy isn’t dragged into being an icon of “Pride”… […] “Why should she become a symbol of something she has nothing to do with? She’s an icon of gaming.

 

“Not everything has to do with sexuality”

Others expressed their gratitude toward Guerrilla for acknowledging gay pride. A few more exclaimed at being happy that others were angry about Aloy potentially being gay, similar to how some groups in the LGBTQIA community rejoiced that some males were bothered about Tracer from Overwatch being gay.


Michael Logan Pursell simply decided to call a spade a spade, writing…

“Who hired the SJW to run the Guerilla Games facebook page? Hint, hint. None of us came to your page for politics and social issues.”

Horizon: Zero Dawn certainly wasn’t free from overt sociopolitical commentary; it became quite evident when comparing the game to Nier: Automata, which had an almost identical story, save for the fact that it was handled in a more even-handed manner.

If you already own Horizon: Zero Dawn and you’re looking to get your hands on the DLC, look no further than November 7th.

    10 years from now gaymers will be demanding all kinds of perverted stuff. Once you crack open pandoras box that’s it.

  • GodBowser

    I just thought if I got my self a job Guerrilla and I had this on my desk

    https://static.myfigurecollection.net/pics/figure/big/450199.jpg?t=1497621482

    Would they fire me on the spot because they might think it’s offensive

    • LOL…. probably. It’s like presenting facts to a Tumblrette on Twitter after they spout out some nonsense. It’s an instant block.

      • GodBowser

        Would I also get fired if I tried making any suggestions on how to make Aloy’s in game model look more feminine

        • You might avoid it if by making her more “feminine” meant making her look like a disabled soft boy with Tourettes syndrome.

  • durka durka

    Isnt she a hermit? Then wtf is she proud about gay prides?

    • She’s a fucking caveman from the future.

  • GodBowser

    I knew it… They really were virtue signaling at London Pride and it explains why Hollie was dressed as that fuck ugly Mary Sue

    I wonder if she might be a feminazi and if PlayStation Access is used for spreading propaganda

    If I was there I would have told her that Nier: Automata is a way better game then Feminazi Zero Dawn and would it trigger her if I also said that 2B is way more sexier then Aloy

    For the record I have decided to stay away from any PlayStation exclusive games with female characters just in case they might be mouth pieces for feminazi propaganda

    • Hulst and Druckmann (from Guerrilla Games and Naughty Dog) basically revealed their SJWism during that sit down interview they had with each other. So we know both Guerrilla Games and Naughty Dog are infected and corrupted from the top down.

      I don’t think it’s affected Polyphony (yet). SIE Japan Studios also seems to be free of it for now, but we’ll see whether it’s affected Sony Bend and Santa Monica Studios when Days Gone and God of War launch next year.

      • GodBowser

        You made me wonder if Sonys first party studios becomes so corrupted by social justice would it make any third party studios reconsider having any future games released on the PlayStation and would the likes of Hulst and Cuckmann prefer it if games like Nier: Automata and Persona were not released on the system since the studios that made them don’t practice social justice

      • durka durka

        You know i actually like how sony has become sjw central and they will all slowly go to shit. When those ideas are the establishment and everyone is sick and tired of em, we will get rid of them and good games will actually come out.

  • And yet there are idiot gamers who still think that Feminazi: Zero Dawn doesn’t have any Social Justice / feminism in it.

    This game should have been called Mary Sue: The Game.

  • Kiryu

    Good that i avoided this cancerous garbage.

  • Why are people constantly surprised that Sony hires tons of SJWs? Sony is at this point one of the most SJW game companies out there.

  • Feli Aslan

    Oh yeah, another chick that looks like an ugly, very ugly man turning out to be gay. That is the kind of progressive people want, sure…

    • Kiryu

      Women being attractive for the male gaze is offensive to libtards.

      • Feli Aslan

        I wished we could help those people. Like, you know we know that they only suffer being alive because there are so much painfull and triggering things for them and they are unable to ever become productive members of society. You know, a way to put them to rest in a humane and painful way, for their own sake. Sadly I now no such procedure, but it would be a very humanistic thing for the benefit of libtards if someone would invent it.

        • Kiryu

          It’s hard to undo decades of brainwashing.Would take another generation to repair all the damage they done.Yuri Bezmenov warned us in 1984.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-XVqpkGquc

          • Feli Aslan

            Isn’t the new generation already going more conservative and 4chan already?

          • Kiryu

            I wish that was true.

          • durka durka

            yup thanks for this vid.. but hey thats conspiracy theory despite he details what happened.

          • Kiryu

            He describes to a tee the authoritarians we now have to deal with over 30 years later.

    • durka durka

      Yeah but since you are trans, one has to wonder if traps are gay.

      • Feli Aslan

        traps are totally gay.
        Jojos ain’t gay. To be aroused by a Jojo is a normal physical reaction for every kind of sexual identity.

  • Phasmatis75

    Keep this in mind. Sony is a company that will close an entire studio and fire key people if their products aren’t performing. Horizon has yet to turn a profit and Sony already axed the sequel. DLC sales are about the only chance Guerrilla has of staying in business at this juncture.

    Also note how you haven’t heard any more news on Horizon’s sales.

    • Kiryu

      The liberals at Guerilla must be thinking Sony is like Marvel being ok losing money.

      • Phasmatis75

        Marvel is screwed and it’s starting to show. Their comics have absolutely failed, their new show is going to fail and I’ve been reading that most of their actors are done playing their roles so their movie line is soon going to fail.

        Sony is looking the same way. Movies are failing under an ideological regime. Their games are starting to fail because they’re not reeling in the SJWs.

        At this point I won’t buy another product from Guerrilla. It’s a toxic brand and this makes me worry about Death Stranding.

        • Mr.Towel

          The future could be even worse for those studios like Guerrilla. Sony might just axe every employee but the keep the studio name.

          Sony has been experimenting on both sides of the political spectrum when it comes to their movie division, with movies like Sausage Party and The Interview, which I heard are still generating steady income. They are getting incentives showing one side pays money and the other doesn’t.This is not good prospect for SJWs.

        • Kiryu

          The comicbook superhero movie trend was always going to end because normies get quickly tired of something and move on to something else.Marvel bet their money on the wrong horse and besides compared to the animations superhero movies are garbage.

  • Welp, there goes my chance of getting the DLC. Sadly, I still had my copy laying down gathering dust along with my PS4 games after I’ve beaten the story. Bought the damn game back when I was pretty unaware with the SJWs infesting the industry.

    Those two ignorant comments that I’ve seen above are the people who are not aware that people are not going to be happy with the developer shoehorning
    politics in this game.

    Fun Fact: Aloy’s voice actress, Ashley Burch, spends some time on her Twitter giving jabs at the Right and Trump.

    • Disqusted

      Oh, so it was Ashley Burch again. Figures. Funny how the SJWs keep employing their close friends, huh.

      • Yup… I never thought she would be that way. Used to like her when she was in the Hey Ash Watchu Playin’ thing, but right after I see her drink that Reg. Left Koolaid, not anymore.

        • Disqusted

          Same. I thought HAWP was hilarious. Kinda feel sorry for her cucked brother who probably knows he’s inferior to her in every way because he wasn’t lucky enough to be born with a vagina, although he kinda self-destructoided.

          I only recently realized Chloe in Life is Strange was also Ashley Burch. I hate Chloe so much, but I thought the voice acting wasn’t that bad. Shame she’s an SJW.

          I must be one of the few who feels that it’s unprofessional for a public figure/celebrity to constantly harp on about politics. It’s different for anonymous comments, of course.

          Edit: Lately I keep thinking people who are SO SURE of politics are really f**king up themselves. Politics aren’t so simple that regular everyday people can know everything about it and pass legitimate judgment on others. Yet that’s what they do. Suddenly everyone is an expert on political commentary.

          • You’re not the only one who thinks the same way.

            Oh, and about the game, there was one time that I was thinking about sliding HZD in my PS4 again and make gameplay videos for my YouTube channel, but now I can totally forget about that shit because of this.

      • Richard

        I think it is the same reason we keep seeing the same people in Adam Sandler movies, they wouldn’t have a job otherwise.

    • durka durka

      Ashley Burch? Really she is alloy? Man its like they handpick their buddies to do this shit.

  • Disqusted

    Irrelevant virtue signalling sucks.

  • Richard

    You would think that in a post-apocalypse, robot dino world, being a person that might not produce a next generation of hunter gatherer would be ostracized more.

  • GuyGuysonEsquire

    Why would anyone want a square-jawed uninteresting Mary Sue to represent their movement? Because standarts are “ableist” nowadays, that’s why.

  • Mike Campbell

    Why people on here are such homophobes

    • GuyGuysonEsquire

      We are neither homophobes nor racists, we’re just sick of all this politics shoved on us from entertainment medium, which is supposed to be an escape from such things.

      • Mike Campbell

        But do people wanted games to be art as well

        • Disqusted

          Art != virtue signalling.

        • GuyverOne

          Pushing politics into games is not art its propaganda and you can have social and political debate in a game with out it being annoying or shoving an agenda down your throat.

        • Mr.Towel

          Rembrandt van Rijn is art.

          This is just political propaganda.

          That’s the difference.

          And homophobe my ass, if you paid more attention, you would know we have gays around here.

          • durka durka

            we are all secretly gay…. FAGGOT….. get it?

    • Disqusted

      I’m not a homophobe. I’m a virtuesignalphobe.

      Ever ask yourself why countries like Japan (where homosexuality isn’t particularly looked down upon) don’t need to virtue signal? Shoving your personal politics in everybody’s face is far from “progressive”.

      There’s an increase in people saying/implying “don’t buy our products unless you agree with our political opinion”. Did they create a product to sell it on its merits, or to push a political agenda?

    • Kiryu

      Nobody here is affraid of gays.The term itself is retarded,learn the definition of words first before repeating it like a blind sheep.

    • durka durka

      Buys a game about giant robots… YAY GAY PRIDE LOOK AT THAT GAY ROBOT…. and on the sequel…. THAT ROBOT IS GAY, IT IDENTIFIES AS A MUSLIM GAY MAN.

      This is not what i play games for.

  • AR7777

    Glad I didn’t buy this turd.

  • Mr.Towel

    F A K E AND G A Y

    And cuck. Since they won’t have gay parades anymore if they keep importing muslims.

    Or maybe they will. It will be a parade about throwing off gays from rooftops.

    • RichardGristle

      MAKE IT HAPPEN

      >Muslims throw gays and trannies off rooftops
      >Muslims get sent to jail
      >Half of lefties support the gays and trannies, half of lefties support the Muslims
      >Leftist civil war
      >The greatest happening of our time

      Fuck I’m hard already.

      • Richard

        Left v. Left. Just sounds like a lot of people screeching at each other.

        • Really can’t wait to see the same side go into the mood of infighting and see how will that turn out.

          • Mr.Towel

            It’s funny as hell. When they start comparing oppression points, it’s like an autistic version of Top Trumps. Like when Black Feminist Women start to shit on the head of White Feminists Women. The screeching knows no end.

      • Disqusted

        I heard muslims run the jails in the UK. That’s how the bacon joke guy got killed in prison. That’s what I heard, anyway.

        • GuyverOne

          That’s what it sounds like, Tommy Robinson apparently had to keep getting moved around from prison to prison because the muslims kept trying to kill him.

    • GuyGuysonEsquire

      No matter what they do, SJWs are doomed.

      • Disqusted

        From the beginning SJWs were raised to essentially be suicide bombers. Rush us and detonate, killing themselves and destroying us with them.

  • Bitterbear

    She’s not making a heart. She’s just showing what happens to your anus if the savages get a hold of you.

  • Bamf

    Rainbow colored war paint. Yeah, that’s pretty gay.

  • AlecJ

    They lost me at the terrible voice actor for “Aloy” and her equally terrible attitude about alternative opinions.

    No money from me.

    • RichardGristle

      Jesus, it sounds like they modeled her directly after some tumblr feminist.

  • RetroGamer

    Remember when games didn’t push sociopolitical viewpoints and were just games? Pepper Ridge Farms remembers.

    • Seems like it’s been a long time ago when games don’t shove in political agenda or pander to the Reg. Left.

    • I remember when games wasn’t trying to be movies.
