Horizon Zero Dawn feature 4

Horizon Zero Dawn Patch 1.06 released, fixes a number of issues

Guerrilla Games has released patch 1.06 for the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn. According to the release notes, this latest update fixes a number of issues that affected most PC gamers. However, this patch does not seem to feature any performance improvements.

Going into more details, update 1.06 improves overall stability by fixing a streaming compute shader crash. It also fixes a crash on startup related to file paths with non-ANSI characters.

Furthermore, this latest update fixes an issue where box graphics would flash during the final cinematic of the game. It also fixes an issue where turning on the Adaptive FPS option gave lower performance results than setting similar results manually.

As always, Steam will download this latest patch the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
