Horizon Zero Dawn PC patch 1.01 has been deployed, which address several reported issues following the game’s PC launch last week.

The patch is a minor one and weighs in at only 1.5MB. In addition to fixing a crashing issue due to the SteamUI not initializing properly, the update packs several other functionality fixes and fixes a video corruption issue for specific hardware.
