Just as promised last week, Guerrilla Games has once again updated the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn in order to fix some of the glaring issues the port is currently facing. Patch 1.01 addressed some more minor issues, but this latest update is a more substantial one that delves into V-sync and frame rate issues. Update 1.02 is available for Horizon Zero Dawn on PC right now, and you can get a look at the full patch notes below.
Horizon Zero Dawn PC Update 1.02 Patch Notes
- Fixed an issue where some players would crash during their first game boot when the ‘game optimization’ screen is active and they ran out of disc space.
- Fixed an issue where some players would crash if they updated their video drivers after the game was already optimized previously.
- Fixed an issue where some players would crash during gameplay because of memory incorrectly being overwritten.
- Fixed an issue where some players would crash during gameplay due to a texture unstreaming bug.
- Improved performance when auto-saving (e.g. when completing a quest step).
- Fixed an issue where some players experienced that V-sync wouldn’t properly turn off in borderless mode
- Fixed an issue where some players experienced out of sync facial animations due to them being locked at 30FPS.
- Reduced memory used when streaming shaders.
- Improved crash report flow and messaging. Each crash now includes an identifier you can use to communicate with our Customer Support.
- Added more features to improve diagnostic data collection when submitting a crash report.
It's interesting that there are articles for the Sony games on PC here.
I don't mean that as a criticism, but I just presumed the audience reading this site would be console owners and not PC ones
@pip_muzz Yeah I had the same thought. It's great for PC gamers but other sites already cater to their needs.
Give us news on Horizon Forbidden West, that's what we're interested in!
@pip_muzz Yeah, I hope this doesn’t become the norm. I’m here for PS4 and PS5.
@OmegaStriver @Col_McCafferty @pip_muzz It's a game published by Sony and continues the conversation we started with the Hands On piece. It's only fair to follow up on that.
Echoing the other statements. While it's a Sony title I don't think we need to see about PC patch notes for the game. Leave that for Eurogamer.
@pip_muzz I have PC, PS4 and Switch. I appreciate not having to look around to find information about the PC versions. I’ll still be getting a PS5 and playing those games alongside PC, although probably not Horizon 2 😛
@LiamCroft Sure I get that but unless they're talking about some new PC feature that will also transfer to HZD on PS5, then this news isn't really relevant to the majority on here.
There seems to be an assumption that most gamers play on more than one platform but I suspect that's not actually the case. Whether it was the 360 last gen or PS4 this time round I only play on one platform.
@Col_McCafferty If it's not relevant to you or something you're not interested in, just don't click on the article?
Kinda wild seeing PC patch notes on Push Square, but I get the reason why. It's still technically a PlayStation game after all.
@LiamCroft Sorry mate but that's not how it works. Didn't you learn anything from all the discourse related to The Last of Us Part II?
Also, posting PC specific news on a PlayStation site is only going to encourage the PCMR to come on this site and frankly that's never a pleasant experience.
Strong subtitle game again guys
I'm holding off on buying this until it's gotten a few more patches and it's discounted. I love HZD, but I can wait to replay it until Forbidden West is much closer to release.
Haven't got this patch yet but it's been playing fine on my pc since launch, and I think it's ok to have news on a game that ps on pc. And I highly doubt you'd get the pcmr coming here just because they talk about 1 game that's a Sony title on pc when they have other forums and its own official forum
When can we expect to start seeing Switch and XBOX game updates on this site, since we are getting PC updates?
@Col_McCafferty I get that but how can they deliver on news when there have been no updates?
@theMEGAniggle Well that's it really, there is no news to report!
Leave HZD updates on PC to more appropriate sites.
not sure why we need to know this we have all played this game years ago & it is for PC other sites cater to this.
@Col_McCafferty it's a game from a PlayStation studio on a site that reports PlayStation news. It's tagged as PC news, as Mr Croft said if it doesn't interest you don't click on it and read a different article. What you've said is true but again, this is a PlayStation site and HZD is a PlayStation studio game so
I'm just here for that Bloodborne PC port when they eventually do it 😜😜😜
I just made an account today, but I used to lurk here before and I'm starting to see a pattern: why are people angry or toxic? It's still a Sony game anyways, let em post what they want. As long as it still says Sony on it, it should be ok.
@MisterM360p I do think it's funny that several users in this thread that were being toxic about other groups...being toxic.....
Please use the term toxic only when it's appropriate. Racism is toxic, transphobia is toxic, but discussing whether an article should be posted on here... that's not toxic behavior. That's called being critical, whether you agree with them or not.
This ANNOYS me :-/ Instead of Guerrilla Games WASTING TIME on this PC port all of that man-power could of gone into the next PS5 game!?!? That is what really ANNOYS me SONY :-/
bring more playstation exclusives to PC
@Kidfried Spot on. I haven't written anything that could be construed as being 'toxic', even the PCMR dig was only tongue in cheek.
I just don't think this classifies as PS news, fine the game is now on PC but I'm not sure any updates or patches to this version should be highlighted on this particular site.
Sorry if I have offended anyone.
@ArcticSin Then they will no longer be PS exclusives.
idgaf, bring them over. I have little interest in Sony's hardware but huge interest in their games
@Col_McCafferty Again, you're not being forced to click on the article. We will continue to highlight updates to the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn and any other Sony-published games that do make their way across.
@ArcticSin This definitely a case of having your cake AND eating it.
This is why I was against taking HZD to the dark side in the first place. It should be PS only, Aloy being a PS icon now. Nintendo could probably double or even triple sales of Zelda or Mario if they went multi-platform but they at least appreciate the value of exclusivity and treat their IPs with the respect they deserve.
Don't care about Bloodborne, you can have that one. The Hunter is no Kratos, Drake or Ellie after all.
@LiamCroft Any other? Hmm, you know something we don't?
Maybe just merge this site with the Xbox and Nintendo ones as well and we can all act as if we're one big happy family.
That is until The Last of Us Part III comes out of course!
Still don't care. Letting other people play games on their preferred systems doesn't devalue anything. And I also want Nintendo to bring their games to PC so I can get rid of my switch. I had more fun playing botw on cemU then on the wii u or switch lmao
@SaikoWaifu2003 damn straight makes no sense in that context
@graysoncharles It's the tail right?
An argument on the internet going round in circles? Would've thought such a thing was possible?
Why do we keep getting PC articles?
@LiamCroft No one is interested though.
@starbuck2212 Now you've gone and done it.
It's all about those juicy clicks.
@Col_McCafferty lol. Let the games begin.
@starbuck2212 why delete your comment about the brown nosing? You know I still got your notification, say it with chest.
I was made to. I'm aware you get the notification.
@starbuck2212 bunch of weirdos complaining about receiving news on a news site 🤦🏾♂️
@theMEGAniggle This is a PS site though and this news is irrelevant to PS only gamers.
Why this is beyond yours and others understanding baffles me.
@SaikoWaifu2003 stupid ppl gonna be stupid I guess. It's funny how they're basically telling the staff here how to do their jobs. Just a bunch of entitled Karen's.
@Col_McCafferty how do you know the majority here???
A quick look on their sister sites for switch and Xbox leads me to the belief a lot of us post on all three and own all three - furthermore looking at comments on all three leads me to the conclusion a lot of us also game on a PC.
The noisy Sony only fanboys are a small minority of the readership and most of us are simply gamers. We want to play the best games on any format and dip in and out of all the platforms.
I’m glad to see push square catering for more than the vocal few Sony only.
@Stocksy Let’s be honest, there’s probably more PC players here than Vita players. That doesn’t stop them from giving us Vita news since it involves Sony, same as how this involves Sony. It’s just a bit of a non-issue tbh.
