Follow each of the steps listed here to start the Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West.

  • Purchase and download Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores via the PlayStation store ($19.99). After purchasing and installing the DLC, you should receive a pop-up thanking you for getting Burning Shores. If you don’t, try restarting the game.
  • Complete the Singularity main quest in Horizon Forbidden West (the final mission in the main game) if you haven’t already.
  • After completing the Singularity quest, you will need to wait for a call from Sylens on Aloy’s Focus. If you’ve already completed the main story before purchasing the DLC, Slyens will talk to you once you close out of the aforementioned pop-up message.
  • After your talk with Slyens, you’ll need to make your way to Tilda’s Mansion (location below).
