Developer Guerrilla Games has officially acknowledged the issues plaguing the PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn, and have said that they’re investigating said issues.
As of now, there’s no date on a fix or a patch, but here’s the statement from the horse’s mouth:
“We have been monitoring all of our channels and are aware that some players have been experiencing crashes and other technical issues. Please know that we are investigating your reports as our highest priority.
We appreciate those who have already taken the time to report their issues on Steam, Reddit, or via our website. If you are still encountering crashes or bugs, please continue to use those spaces, or refer to our FAQ if you are unsure of how to proceed. Your reports are, and have already been, incredibly helpful for our teams.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to investigate issues; we will update you all as soon as we have more news.”
We find it funny that they’ve used the phrase “some players” when it’s actually the vast majority of players who’ve been facing issues. The game in its current state may not be completely unplayable, but you’ll need top of the line hardware to be able to brute force Zero Dawn into playing. And even then, you may not get a stable performance.
As it stands, we definitely would not recommend the port right away.
