Horizon Zero Dawn was one of Sony’s biggest exclusives of 2017. It was a spectacle and surpassed all expectations. In preparation for the DLC that is hitting on November 7, the team over at Guerrilla Games is making the game the best it can be to set the stage for this new content.

They have released patch 1.33, which includes a new feature and a number of fixes.

“NEW FEATURES

• Implemented an option to allow making a manual save from a previous Game when starting a New Game to avoid losing progress.

GENERAL FIXES

• Fixed an issue where for some players Tearblast Arrows incorrectly deal extra Tear damage on Ultra Hard.

• Fixed an issue where some players were able to reroll Special Modification Boxes by saving and reloading.

PROGRESSION ISSUES FIXES

• Fixed an issue in ‘The Womb of the Mountain’ when playing on Story difficulty where some players were able to kill the Corruptor outside of the gate, blocking progression because the player is not able to interact with it to continue the quest.”

There was initially a glitch that popped up, but the team at Guerrilla Games quickly nipped that in the bud by releasing patch 1.34 within a day to fix it (how is that for service?) Patch 1.33 is 309.6MB, so it’s reasonably sized and not too much of a hassle to download.

Personally, I’m very excited for The Frozen Wilds and to see Aloy’s story continue, as Sony’s newest IP has one of the most fascinating narratives told in years. While Horizon Zero Dawn is not my game of the year thus far, it’s the second best game I’ve played in 2017 besides Zelda. Sony outdid themselves with Horizon and are proving why they their current business model is succeeding beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
