    Summary

    (Old summary) Aloy is called to Meridian and told that the Forbidden West now has some new animals and new machine behaviors that need investigating. She accepts but for the life of her could never guess what was beyond the map.

    -

    What is left of the Old Ones are ruins and technology, Aloy has been exploiting ever since HADES. She's been looking for something, anything, to help her revive GAIA and understand the past. It wasn't until she got a call for help from Meridian did she find a direction - the Forbidden West, now crawling with new machines and new creatures, and it raises more questions than before. And it only takes a little digging to figure out where - or *who - this all came from.

    Summary

    To organize an army across long distances is never an easy feat, and when you can’t be there to personally dole out punishments for unruly behavior it only strains you. But when your god is a curious machine with an appetite for new experiences, such unruly behavior can come and bite you.

    Summary

    [SPOILERS FOR THE END OF THE GAME]
    [POSSIBLE REFERENCES TO THE FROZEN WILDS DLC FROM CHAPTER 26 AND ONWARD]

    -

    The woman is standing near the console, the same height as Aloy. Same color red hair, but shorter. Her face is different in that it looks older, with more pronounced smile lines. She looks tired. Worn. It's Elisabet in a way Aloy has never seen her before, without the holo's filter of blue light layered over her image. Real and tangible.

    -

    Aloy helps restore GAIA. In return, GAIA decides to bring back Elisabet, and that's where things get messy.

    Summary

    It's been two years since the battle for the Spire, and with GAIA's help Aloy is on the verge of bringing the Zero Dawn network back online, giving GAIA control over the terraforming system again.

    Once accomplished, Aloy would finally be free to leave the ruins she's been stuck living in. The first destination to come to mind? Meridian.

    ----

    Not much has changed for Erend in the two years since Aloy left him behind and never looked back. He's still Captain of the Vanguard. He's still drinking. He's still miserable and alone. He figures there isn't much of anything that could change that.

    He couldn't be more wrong.
