Horizon: Zero Dawn has faced several issues on PC since launch, with the port running into all sorts of problems, from crashes and frame rate drops to more minor visual glitches. Last week, Guerrilla Games began their work to fix these issues with a small patch, saying that more issues were being worked on and would be fixed with future updates. Now, a second patch has gone live as well.

Taking to Reddit, Guerrilla detailed patch 1.02, which fixes several crashing issues, and also introduces other improvements V-sync, auto-saving, facial animations, and more. Of course, there are still other issues that are persisting, but Guerrilla says it is continuing to “investigate and work on solutions.” An updated list of known issues that Guerrilla is working on has also been published alongside the patch notes, including memory error, GPU-related hangs, graphical settings issues, and more. Check them out in full through here.

Horizon Zero Dawn is available on PS4 and PC. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks as more patches for the PC version go live.
