With the Horizon Zero Dawn major expansion – The Frozen Wilds – just days away, here’s a quick look at the new big bad that players will face – the Scorcher.

We actually initially envisaged writing that like a line from our favourite episode of The Simpsons, ‘Last Exit to Springfield’, where Lisa needed braces (dental plan!). Please indulge us?

Lisa, so you won’t be scared, I’ll show you some of the bosses you’ll be facing. This is the Corruptor. This is the Thunderjaw. And this happy little fellow… is the Scorcher.

OK, now that we have that out of our system, the video below gives us some insight into this new foe, thanks to the devs behind its creation.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds DLC is releasing on November 7. If you haven’t come on board the Horizon train yet, you’re obviously a patient type. As such if you wait until December 12 you can buy the Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition, which includes The Frozen Wilds and all the other DLC bits and bobs that have been released so far. You can pre-order it from JB right here.
