Many players are excited to dive into the world of Horizon Forbidden West with its new DLC release for the base game called Burning Shores. This new DLC will offer plenty of additional combat and new sights for players to discover as they embark on a journey through the volcanic archipelago that was once Los Angeles.

But how do you begin this DLC? Where specifically do you need to go in the game to start this new content? Well, we have the answers for you below. Keep reading to find out exactly how to access the Burning Shores DLC in Horizon Forbidden West.

How To Start The Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores DLC

To access the Burning Shores DLC, players will first and foremost need to have completed the base game, including the final quest called "singularity". Once complete, and you've watched the credits roll, continue the game, which will now let you free roam for a bit.

After a few seconds, you will receive a call over Aloys Focus from Sylens. He will inform you that he has an urgent matter to discuss with you and to meet him over at Tilda's. After the conversation ends, you will automatically begin the main quest of the new DLC called "To The Burning Shores" (be sure that your game is updated to receive the call from Sylens).
