A day-one Horizon Zero Dawn PC patch that addresses some reported issues is slated to arrive later this week. Guerrilla Games’ action-RPG releases on PC this Friday, and apparently, the title will receive a day-one update to fix several issues that early-reviewers have been reporting.
According to our Sony PR contact, this day-one patch is now scheduled to arrive this Thursday and will address some optimization and stability issues. As such, this update is expected to be available for all PC players upon the game’s launch this Friday.
We’ve seen this sort of ubiquitous platform-proliferation from the likes of Microsoft and Nintendo, but for Sony, it’s much rarer: especially for a AAA release. I hope they do it more often. Horizon Zero Dawn was released for PlayStation 4 back in March of 2017. A sequel, Horizon: Forbidden West, is currently in development for PlayStation 5.

It was a joy getting to experience this game and its universe again, warts and all. For every amazing vista and unique enemy design, there’s a rote mission parameter or a bloated open world objective to come across. Figuring out the little puzzles of how to kill each enemy is a blast until it becomes tedious. This game’s version of Detective Vision is also just as boring as it was at launch.
It’s an interesting AAA ride though, and worth experiencing if you haven’t already. Many of you will be able to hand-wave some of those issues as you get further sucked into the world that our protagonist Aloy inhabits. There’s a lot of reviews out there to read up on at this point if you’re concerned about the content!
Having played through Horizon Zero Dawn on PC, my view of it hasn’t changed since I first played it in early 2017. There’s a lot of open world bloat present, but when it works, it works. And man is it still beautiful, especially on PC.
