Horizon Forbidden West looks incredible on both the PlayStation 5 and (perhaps, surprisingly) PS4, but it’s not flawless: its presentation does have a few issues, including HDR hiccups, shimmering, and pop-in. The good news is that developer Guerrilla Games is on the case, and after last week’s hot fix, it’s already planning to release another title update as soon as possible.
“Thank you for sharing your various visual issues with us via our Support Form,” a spokesperson wrote on the game’s official Reddit page. “The team are working vigilantly to resolve these issues. Please continue to use the Support Form and share videos (recordings of your TV and monitor are useful) and provide us with as much information as possible.”
The Dutch developer added that it appreciates fans’ frustration, but it’s working as quickly as it can: “We understand your frustrations and appreciate your patience. We are doing our best to quickly get you back out into the wilds so you can explore all the secrets of the Forbidden West.” Have you experienced any issues with the game’s visuals at all?
Sadly, we can’t help with iffy HDR implementation and bugs, but we can still refer you to our Horizon Forbidden West guide, which will help you on your path to 100 per cent completion. Hopefully the first-party studio is able to issue some fixes before you’ve discovered everything in the Forbidden West.
