Graphical Improvements

  • Fix for the graphics settings preset name not updating when you pressed Auto-Detect
  • Fix for the menu (and loading screen) being displayed at incorrect scale when changing AF in borderless mode
  • Fix for the resolution sometimes being too low in windowed mode
  • Fix for the errands quest list overlapping with tutorial quest list

Other Changes

  • Graphics settings are now stored in a text file instead of a binary file to facilitate easier tweaking

Horizon Zero Dawn is now available on PC and PlayStation 4 worldwide. The game is among the best open-world games released in the past few years, as highlighted by Chris in his review.

Horizon Zero Dawn is a pure sign of what can be completed with an exceptionally designed open world. Not only that, it has exceptional characterisation and a sincere story that doesn't shoehorn elements, allowing for the organic growth of characters. This is a game that I can barely find any faults with, except borrowing some elements from other open world games. Even so, it made each and every element its own in one of the best games to date.
