Horizon Zero Dawn Patch Notes Include Tons of Bugfixes and Improvements


A new patch is going live for Horizon Zero Dawn that brings a massive amount of bugfixes involving quests, game crashes, and other areas of the game.

Guerrilla Games released the patch notes for the new game earlier in the day with a huge Reddit post that contained all of the changes. It covers everything from the graphics to the gameplay, but if you’re one of the players who recently picked up the game on Black Friday, you might want to tread carefully. If you haven’t beaten the game yet, you might unwillingly wander into spoiler territory when digging through the patch notes.
