Guerilla Games has announced that Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port has received a new update, 1.11.2. Available now, that fixes several visual issues affecting the game and improves Video RAM (VRAM) management.

According to patch notes posted on Reddit, these improvements should fix issues fans had when changing the resolution or fiddling with upscale mode, which led to performance issues. Prior to Update 1.11.2, fans needed to restart Horizon Zero Dawn when suffering with these issues.

Here's the full list of patch notes for Horizon Zero Dawn’s latest PC update:

  • Improved VRAM management when changing resolution or upscale mode, which could cause performance issues that were only fixed by restarting the game
  • Fixed various assets using the wrong quality level while using DLSS/FSR
  • Fixed visual artifact issue when clipping the camera through a surface like pushing against a wall (ie with large FOVs or ultrawide screens) while using DLSS/FSR
  • Fixed visual corruption and reduced foliage flickering issues on certain AMD GPUs

While Horizon Zero Dawn continues improving on PC, PlayStation fans are getting the sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, on February 18 for PS4 and PS5. It’s unknown if that'll also make the jump to PC, though with Sony slowly porting more games to PC, we'd speculate its likely.
