After rumors of a Game of the Year Edition popped up yesterday, it turns out they were pretty close to accurate as Sony took to Twitter to officially announce Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition, which will feature the base game, The Frozen Wilds Expansion, and all Digital Deluxe Content. The package will retail for $49.99 and releases on December 5th, 2017 (a date the rumor actually got right).
Here's the announcement:

The Digital Deluxe content includes unique weapons, resource packs, a PS4 theme, and a digital art book, so this is far and away the best value out there for anyone that has held off on buying the game.
Horizon Zero Dawn was easily one of the year's most anticipated games coming into 2017, and it didn't disappoint. The game scored well across the board and earned a 9.5 in the official GameZone Review. This announcement would seem to confirm that The Frozen Wilds will be the game's only expansion given the "Complete" label.
Guerrilla Games has continued to add to the game via a patch with features like "Story Difficulty" which lowers the challenge to allow the player to focus on Difficulty and manual saves for new playthroughs.
Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition launches on December 5th, 2017 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
