A new week brings a new Horizon Zero Dawn patch to PC.
Guerilla Games has released a new update for the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn. Today’s patch, version 1.05, mostly brings fixes for crashes, although it contains a few other fixes.
The update addresses the issue that caused Aloy’s hair to not display properly when running the game at a frame rate above 30 fps. Shader animations for things like door locks now also have an unlocked frame rate.
Apart from various fixes for graphical flickering and corruption, the update also allows players with extremely wide resolutions to replace blurry sidebars with black bars.
