Horizon Zero Dawn needs a lot of post-release attention. The game’s PC port hasn’t exactly been the smoothest. Horizon Zero Dawn on PC is riddled with issues and has suffered from countless crashes. Developer Guerrilla Games recently released update 1.01, however, that only fixed a couple of issues. Now, the devs are back with yet another update.

Update 1.02 was released today and it addresses tons of problems. The update especially addressed crash issues and also improved the game’s performance during auto-saving. Memory usage was reduced and an out-of-sync facial animation bug that occurred due to the 30FPS lock has also been fixed.

This update won’t mark the end of all problems for Horizon Zero Dawn. There are still several issues that need to be worked on, but now the game is at least playable.

You can check out the official patch notes of the update below.
