Steam account holders who pre-ordered Horizon Zero Dawn can pre-load the game right now.
Game studio Guerilla Games has announced the pre-load possibility for the game. Be warned: the file size is at 67.1 GB and might increase with future updates. For those who bought the game on Epic Games Store, they will have to wait for a while to download it.
Guerilla Games has also announced a few issues that players might encounter in the game and could not be fixed in time for launch. Check out the list;
Anisotropic Filtering settings are not working. This is a high priority issue for us to resolve.
Some systems may experience a brief stutter during general world traversal, UI updates, quest updates, or camera swaps in cutscenes. This is a high priority issue for us to investigate.
Some animations are designed to only refresh at 30fps even if the game is running at a much higher frame rate. We are exploring how we can improve this with a future update.
The game studio reminded the players that they should have the latest graphics drivers available for their card. Older drivers might cause graphical glitches or stability issues:
AMD: 20.7.2 (“Optional” / non-WHQL) or newer
