It’s known that Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC version launch was a bit disappointing. The game’s PC port was plagued by multiple technical issues including frame rate dips, game bugs, and so on. However, Guerrilla Games already released a lot of updates for the game that alleviate some of the problems. The latest update marked 1.10 might be one of the best attempts to fix the game. While Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC version is still not as good as its console counterpart, the developers managed to fix a lot of known crashes and improved the game’s performance.
It’s worth mentioning one particular fix that will help out for all the PC Master Racers out there. 1.10 update changed the storage of the game’s graphics settings information. From now on, it’s stored in a text file instead of a binary file. This means that casual users will be able to mess with these settings a lot easier than before.
While there still are some things that developers could try to fix in the coming weeks and months, don’t expect too much. According to patch notes, Guerilla Games are somewhat satisfied with the current state of the game and will shift its focus to continue developing the game’s sequel Horizon Forbidden West.
The studio’s statement reads:
“As our team continues development on our upcoming title Horizon Forbidden West, we are shifting to less frequent updates for Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC after this patch. Please note that we will continue to monitor our community spaces as always!”
So that is that. If you were holding off from playing Horizon Zero Dawn on PC until Guerilla Games will be done tweaking it, the time has come. If you were patient enough, you now can play a way better version of the game than the players who bought it on day one. Another bonus – Horizon Zero Dawn on PC now is way cheaper than it ever was and the sequel is that much closer to launch. Be sure to check out our price for the game!
