Game studio Guerilla Games recently released the newest update for the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition.
Patch 1.07 is out now on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store featuring new tweaks and fixes for the game. The development team has been hard at work on the trickier graphical issues, which they say would need more time to fix.
The new patch has rewritten the way the engine would deal with shaders and shader-optimization. Players can choose to do this since it is optional, and also the Anisotropic Filtering option is now working.
When players start the game, they can start optimizing shaders in the Main Menu each time. Shaders will be optimized during gameplay, but this will now happen automatically in the background. They can also let the initial shader optimization run as usual. If they want to improve the loading times in the game, it is better to let the process finish. Changing AF settings will take some time but it depends on the PC hardware.
Here are the patch notes:
CPUs that have more than 16 cores might experience a higher amount of instability
Some players are experiencing graphical settings issues, such as HDR not working correctly.
Some players are experiencing performance issues on specific GPUs or hardware combinations.
We’re aware of and continue to investigate issues that are not yet solved on both the player-compiled lists by u/EvilMonkeySlayer and u/Rampage572 – thank you!
Anisotropic Filtering now works correctly
The mandatory/unskippable shader optimisation step at first launch has been removed
Shaders are now pre-optimised in the game’s Main Menu, but can be skipped
Shaders are also optimised dynamically in-game
Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition PC is now available on Steam and Epic Games Store.
