It has been a while since we received a new Horizon Zero Dawn update. Apparently, developer Guerrilla Games need a lot of time to solve the never-ending issues of the Horizon Zero Dawn PC port. The PC port is now in much better shape than it was at launch, but it can always be improved further. The latest update for HZD was released today and it made some very important changes.

Thanks to the All-Mother, Anisotropic Filtering now finally works on PC. This issue has been present in the PC port since launch and has only been fixed now. That’s not all, as Guerrilla also made tons of changes to the game engine, especially to the part that is responsible for shaders and shader optimization. No more compulsory waiting for ten minutes for shader optimization at the first launch. Guerrilla has now made it optional. You can play by skipping optimization, but it will lead to a longer loading time.

The new system will now occur every time you launch HZD. I am not the biggest fan of this ‘feature’. I would rather wait for a long time at first launch instead of wait every time I have to load something.

The complete patch notes are mentioned below and on the official site. A small list of known issues is also mentioned below. You can check out the full list of known issues over here.


Graphical Improvements

  • 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


  • 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!

So what do you think? Are you interested in any of these changes? Have you played HZD on PC yet? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
