Like a big stack of other titles, Killzone series’ developer Guerrilla Games’ soon-to-launch PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn will also be having its very own day one patch. Compared to the day one patches of most other titles now a days, what we’re getting here is a very tiny update, coming in at around 250 MB.
This day one update mainly consists of performance-based upgrades on the PS4 Pro and “higher visual fidelity” for both 4K and 1080p sets, according to the patch notes that were posted by PlayStation Universe.
As Guerilla put it:
Horizon Zero Dawn will receive a small day zero patch that will build upon PlayStation 4 Pro support, adding a Performance mode which will favor smoother framerates while delivering higher visual fidelity in the 1080p mode, this mode is available for both 4K and 1080p displays.
Horizon Zero Dawn will be launching on February 28 in North America and March 1 in Europe. A lot of reviews for the game have already shown up online, and the game seems to be receiving a truckload of praise. So in terms of quality, Guerilla definitely seems to have delivered, now it’s just a matter of time to see how the public receives this post apocalyptic sci-fi action adventure title.
Just last week, Sony had talked about how Zero Dawn has the absolute potential to become a new trademark franchise for the company. In addition to that, Sony believes that the main character Aloy, who is actually inspired by the Game of Thrones character Ygritte (Jon Snow’s very own Gone Girl), could become a “PlayStation icon of the future”. A title that remains in the virtual hands of our handsome and beloved Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series and the beastly tattooed pale white god killer, Kratos, from God of War, amongst others.
