Horizon Zero Dawn PC patch 1.02 fixes the “irritating crashes”

Horizon Zero Dawn PC patch 1.02 fixes crashes that have prevented some players from accessing the game at all. The PC version of Horizon looks fantastic, but it suffers from hard crashes which seem to vary greatly between hardware setups.

Patch 1.02 targets these directly, although it does not fix everything, developers Guerilla Games stated that it addressed the “more infuriating” crashes around.

Here are the key patch notes:

  • Fixed an issue where some players would crash during their first game boot when the ‘game optimization’ screen is active and they ran out of disc space.
  • Fixed an issue where some players would crash if they updated their video drivers after the game was already optimized previously.
  • Fixed an issue where some players would crash during gameplay because of memory incorrectly being overwritten.
  • Fixed an issue where some players would crash during gameplay due to a texture unstreaming bug.
  • Improved crash report flow and messaging. Each crash now includes an identifier you can use to communicate with our Customer Support.
  • Added more features to improve diagnostic data collection when submitting a crash report.

It also addresses performance dips that are experienced during auto-saving and locked V-sync in borderless windowed mode. Broken facial animations due to FPS limits have also been addressed and excess memory usage that is tied to the shaders.

Guerilla Games has previously stated that improving the PC version is its “highest priority” as shown by its updated report system, that encourages players to continue reporting issues, be it big and small.
