Horizon​​n Forbidden West Patch 1.08 is now live


Guerrilla Games has released another update for Horizon Forbidden West, with patch 1.08 focusing on issues that players keep reporting.

As usual, the developer shared the patch notes on Reddit, starting with a known issue that the team is still investigating. These include graphics issues with flickering, sharpening, and screen saturation; fast travel bugs, and issues with rewards for completing the Black Box Collectibles event.

For fixes and improvements, the long list covers main and side quests, world events, performance and stability, and other miscellaneous issues. Most notably, Guerrilla appears to have fixed multiple crashes that plagued players’ games, as well as some maintenance on in-game animations, unexpected loading screens — which were mentioned in patch 1.07 as a work in progress — and visuals pop up.

Various graphical bugs have also been fixed, including an issue where Aloy’s outfit no longer appears wet after being in the water, and an issue where the Photo Mode controls would freeze after starting a swan dive. A previously known issue with incorrect NPC movement animations in settlements has finally been fixed, and the developers have also made some balance changes to weapons and enemies. The full list of patch notes is as follows:
