Developer Guerrilla Games has released patch 1.22 for Horizon Forbidden West, bringing further improvements to the game. Since its release in February 2022, Guerrilla Games has released several updates for Horizon Forbidden West, many of which have focused on fixing bugs and improving other aspects of the game.
For example, Horizon Forbidden West's 1.09 update made huge quality of life changes, as it added an option for users to disable pickup animations. Since gamers can spend a significant amount of time acquiring raw materials and resources to craft ammo, this update will allow users to significantly speed up the process. Now, Guerrilla Games has published the patch notes for the changes made to Horizon Forbidden West in update 1.22.
As revealed by the development team on Reddit, Horizon Forbidden West's 1.22 patch mainly includes crash fixes, while also correcting an issue that would cause the time of day to get permanently stuck. Additionally, it fixes an issue where Dino Digits Quiz rewards would not unlock in some cases. Overall, this latest Horizon Forbidden West seems to be fairly minor, as it mostly fixes crashes that the playerbase was facing. Guerrilla Games is also aware of a few other known issues, such as some players facing issues related to quest progression in Horizon Forbidden West.
The 1.22 update comes on the heels of Horizon Forbidden West's 1.21 patch, adding some useful quality of life and accessibility features to the game. For example, the 1.21 update added an option to make Aloy pickups auto-loot, while also having a Thalassophobia mode. Finally, this patch adds support for Horizon Forbidden West's Burning Shores DLC, which was released alongside the update.
Despite positive reviews from critics, the Burning Shores DLC bombed with reviews on Metacritic, with giving Aloy the option to be gay one of the biggest reasons. Also, while Horizon Forbidden West was released on PS4 and PS5, it looks like some users were unhappy that Burning Shores was only available on PS5.
With some gamers focused on finishing Burning Shores, it looks like fans of the series will have a lot to look forward to, as Guerrilla Games is currently developing a sequel to Horizon Forbidden West. The studio recently released a statement hinting at another adventure for Aloy, as well as an as-yet-unannounced online project.
