Horizon: Zero Dawn has fixed more crashes in a PC patch

Another Horizon: Zero Dawn patch arrived today, promising to fix yet more bugs that caused crashes. Horizon is such a lovely game that it's a shame the launch was marred for some by technical issues, especially considering this was Sony's first experiment in releasing PlayStation exclusives on PC. Fingers crossed that this patch lets more folks simply enjoy scampering about hunting robodinosaurs.I do have a…

Horizon Zero Dawn PC patch stops Aloy being a tiny child forever

The battle to make Horizon Zero Dawn stop crashing on PC continues with the game's latest patch, which came out this week. Turns out there are an awful lot of ways for Guerrilla's cyber dino-hunting adventure to crash, from GPU hangs to AI aiming at weird places. These are amongst the issues solved this week, as is a slightly weirder problem which caused players to…

Sony will “explore” bringing more exclusives to PC

Earlier this year, Alice0 mused that it would be weird if Sony didn't bring more exclusives to PC and by golly it looks like they were listening to her specifically because now they're having a proper think about it. Sony now say they will "explore" bringing more games by Sony-owned studios to PC players.

Horizon Zero Dawn’s first patch fixes some crashes

If you've been hounded by technical problems in the PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn, I have some good news for you. Today, Guerrilla Games released a small patch for the formerly PS4-exclusive dinobot adventure to fix a bunch of performance issues. Crashes, random bugs with Steam and Windows profile names, and broken slowdown mechanics are but a few issues this update has addressed. Guerrilla…

Feature: When graphics cards go wrong

I accidentally unlocked Horizon Zero Dawn’s N64 mode

Over the last week, I've sat through Horizon Zero Dawn's lengthy optimisation process more times than I care to count. Most people will only ever have to do this once when they play Horizon, but in my attempts to benchmark the game with lots of different graphics cards, it meant sitting through that 10-15 minute start-up sequence every time I put a new card inside…

Feature: When it's not crashing, of course

Horizon Zero Dawn benchmarks: what kind of performance you can expect on PC

Horizon Zero Dawn hasn't got off to the best start on PC. While we've had minimal performance issues here at RPS, others have found it downright unplayable due to frequent crashes, stuttering and more. Guerrilla Games have said that they're investigating these technical problems as a matter of top priority, and we expect another patch to be forthcoming very soon. In the meantime, though, I'd…

Horizon Zero Dawn devs say investigating PC technical problems is “highest priority”

The robodinosaur-hunting former PlayStation exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn came to PC on Friday and: it's still a great game but it's marred by technical issues on PC. While it's fine for some players, others report issues from stuttering framerates to crashes. The developers, Guerrilla Games acknowledged on Saturday that yeah it's not the best, and said that investigating players' reports of problems was their "highest…

Feature: False dawn?

Despite stellar performance on our end, Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC port has been nearly unplayable for others

As you may have noticed, I've been quite impressed with Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port. I've been able to get the game running smoothly at 60fps on High settings even on a lowly GTX 1060 during the course of my testing, and I'm also very fond of Horizon's lovely ultrawide support, too. Sadly, this hasn't been the case for everyone over the last couple of…

Horizon Zero Dawn PC review

If you've read anything I've had to say about Horizon Zero Dawn to date - and I've eulogised it twice already - the tone of this review shouldn't come as a surprise. I knew the PC port would have to be either unplayable, or introduce an inexplicable wisecracking pelican as Aloy's sidekick, to change my opinion of what's probably my favourite ever action game. And…

Feature: Broaden your horizons

Horizon Zero Dawn is properly lovely in ultrawide, most of the time

Guerrilla Games have really gone to town on the PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn. Not only have they unlocked the game's frame rate and added in shinier graphics presets to give it PS4-beating performance on relatively low-end hardware, but it's also one of 2020's big PC games to get 21:9 ultrawide support. The latter is something I've been particularly looking forward to after the…

Feature: Now bring me that horizon

Horizon Zero Dawn on PC comfortably outperforms PS4 in this brilliant port

Horizon Zero Dawn stomps onto PC in just two days time, and I've been playing an early build of Guerrilla Games' post-apocalyptic cyber dino-hunting adventure to see how it runs now that it's left the confines of its console box origins. The results, I'm pleased to say, are excellent. Not only is this the best-looking version of Horizon Zero Dawn, what with its extra graphics…

Feature: Robot t-rexstasy

The PC port is the best way to play Horizon Zero Dawn

Folks, the time has almost come. Yes, Horizon Zero Dawn's PC release is mere days away. Soon, Guerrilla Games' former Sony exclusive will be unleashed on a new segment of the game playing public like a big robot dinosaur set free in a water park. We here at RPS are looking at HZD from several angles, so while Nate is down in the wordmines right…

Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC requirements are pretty much identical to Death Stranding

If you've been itching to play former PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn when it comes out on PC next month, you can now see if your PC's up to the task of running Guerrilla Games' post-apocalyptic cyber dino-hunting adventure thanks to some freshly published PC requirements over on its Steam page. Thankfully, they're pretty much exactly the same as Kojima's post-apocalyptic courier sim, Death Stranding,…

Feature: Behold!

Horizon Zero Dawn’s world is beautifully borked – and I can’t wait to revisit it on PC

There's just four weeks to go now until Horizon Zero Dawn does a massive electric roar and charges towards us through our PC screens, and as RPS' resident HZD obsessive, I'm excited. And to my own surprise, possibly the thing I'm most excited about is the chance to just drink in the look of the game again. In fact, no. I don't want to drink…

Horizon Zero Dawn launches on PC August 7th

Alright folks, start up the post-apocalyptic phone tree. Horizon Zero Dawn now has a PC release date. Guerilla Games had previously announced plans for a summer release and then, to my equal parts joy and sadness, revealed a trailer for the sequel before gracing PC players with a date for the original. Well that's solved now. You'll be able to take Aloy on a good…

The bundle isn't up on AMD's own website yet, but various system builders and component retailers in the UK such as Scan, Overclockers and Chillblast have all got pages outlining…

Please watch this man perform videogame soundtracks on his Mongolian string instrument

You know how it is. You think you're into videogame soundtracks, then you go and hear someone perform ten of them on a Mongolian string instrument. I recently spent 20 minutes listening to a man do just that, and I think you should too.Genius Jaavka is the man. The morin khuur is his instrument. Songs from Horizon Zero Dawn (coming to PC this summer), Mortal…

It would be weird if Sony didn’t bring more PlayStation exclusives to PC

With yesterday's news that Sony will release Horizon: Zero Dawn on PC this summer came a hint that this might be only the first of their PlayStation exclusives coming our way. It sounds like they're moving slowly and cautiously yet do expect to bring more. While this has seemed increasingly likely in recent years, it's still surprising to me. What a great thing. Sony own…

It's been two months since rumours started flying about Horizon: Zero Dawn coming to PC, and now, out of absolutely nowhere, it's been confirmed. Horizon is a (soon-to-be former) PlayStation exclusive where you get to hunt giant robot dinosaurs, and it's making its way to PC this very summer.Oh Nate will be pleased.
