A visual issue in Horizon Forbidden West causing shimmering has been addressed and resolved. Guerrilla Games has released a hotfix for its acclaimed role-playing game, which you can download and install now. All you need to do is restart the title a couple of times to grab the update and apply it.
The Dutch developer explained on its official Twitter account:
It’s worth reiterating that this isn’t a traditional patch, so you won’t see it downloading in your console’s operating system. The advantage here is that Guerrilla Games has been able to push it out quickly, so if you’ve yet to embark on Aloy’s sophomore adventure – or are currently engrossed in a Friday afternoon session – just take a moment to reboot the game a couple of times to apply these fixes.
We’ve seen some players complain about some HDR related issues online today, which seems to occur predominantly in Resolution mode, so it’ll be interesting to see if the studio is able to promptly rectify that as well.
