Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC Patch Introduces Support for DLSS and More

More improvements, more support, and changes come with the latest patch!

Horizon Zero Dawn

Guerilla Games has recently announced that the newly released Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC patch will add support for DLSS upscaling technology and more.

Patch 1.11 is now available on both Steam and Epic Games PC platforms and it introduces a lot of new improvements and a few UI changes to the game. Some of the highlights include support for Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology and AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution. The latter has replaced FidelityFX CAS.

Here are the full patch notes:

Graphical Improvements

  • Added Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology.
  • Added AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, replacing FidelityFX CAS.

UI Changes

  • Adjusted settings screen to facilitate the addition of DLSS and FSR.
  • Render Scale option has been removed but same result can now be accomplished by adjusting setting Upscale Method to Simple and adjusting Upscale Quality.

Performance Improvements

  • Improvement to the shader management system. This will result in a few noticeable differences:
  • There is no longer a shader pre-compilation step on startup. The game will always compile shaders during loading and in the background.
  • Stutters during gameplay that used to occur due to background shader compilation have now been significantly reduced.
  • Because shader compilation is still happening in the background you may notice the game having a higher CPU utilization while that is happening.
  • Loading screens will wait for the required shaders to be fully compiled. This may cause loading screens to take somewhat longer on certain systems.
  • On higher spec machines with faster CPUs the loading screens will typically be shorter, due to more efficient shader compilation that better leverages high-end CPUs.

Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC is now available on Steam and Epic Games. The game is also available on PS4 and PS5.
