Patch 1.06 is the latest in a series of patches designed to address a range of technical issues that have been present since the game’s release on August 7.
“First of all, we want to thank you all for your continued feedback, patience and support,” Guerrilla said on Steam. “In the past couple of weeks, our team has worked hard on some trickier changes that needed some extra time to develop and test.
“These include some issues reported by the community, such as Aloy not walking in the direction where the camera was facing when pressing forward.”
- Fixed a streaming compute shader crash
- Fixed a crash on startup related to file paths with non-ANSI characters
- Fixed an issue where characters would noticeably warp between cuts during a specific cutscene in main quest “The Point of the Spear”
- Fixed an issue where box graphics would flash during the final cinematic of the game
- Fixed an issue in HDR where the UI could get overlapped by a black scene
- Fixed an issue where turning on the Adaptive FPS option gave lower performance results than setting similar results manually
- Aloy forward walking direction – Aloy now walks directly towards the direction the camera is facing when you press forward, rather than at a slight angle
- Executable details – Properties of the executable now also displays the current version
- Some players are experiencing an out of memory error during the game optimization process.
- Some players are experiencing graphical settings issues, such as Anisotropic Filtering or HDR not working correctly.
- Some players are experiencing performance issues on specific GPUs or hardware combinations.
- We’re aware of and continue to investigate issues that are not yet solved on both the player-compiled lists by u/EvilMonkeySlayer and u/Rampage572 – thank you!
The PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn reportedly sold 716,000 copies digitally during its release month. According to Nielsen’s SuperData, the game had a PC launch “nearly as large” as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, while its launch month sales were up 50% compared to the PC edition of Death Stranding.
Guerrilla announced Horizon 2: Forbidden West for PS5 in June ahead of a planned 2021 release date. And last month Sony confirmed it will also release the game for PS4.
