Game news Horizon Forbidden West: the exclusive PlayStation more fluid than ever thanks to a new update
Available since February 18, 2022, Horizon Forbidden West continues to experience improvements, whether on PS4 or PS5. Bug fixes, balancing, technical improvements, everything is done to improve what can still be improved.
Inviting Aloy to investigate on the West Coast side, Horizon: Forbidden West unveils an all-new storyline, new mechanics, new robots, new characters, varied environments, and even underwater exploration.
Horizon Forbidden West: after the good surprise of the first opus, it’s time for confirmation
Powered by Guerilla Games’ Decima engine, the title was critically acclaimed and generally well received by gamers. Improving the formula of the first opus at all levels with a more varied open world and a better told story, the title was not lacking in our opinion than one of an end brought with more subtlety and suffered from a small lack of “real novelties”. But like most titles of this magnitude, Horizon Forbidden West arrived with its share of more or less major technical problems. The vast majority of annoying issues have been fixed, but there are still things to fix.
Variable Refresh Rate and High Refresh Rate on the program
In addition to these corrections, the objective is to integrate as much as possible difficulty modes, content, and technologies that improve fluidity and the stability of the game. This is what happens with the new update from Horizon Forbidden West, the 1.17. This update fixes small bugs, but above all adds the Variable Reresh Rate (Variable refresh rate) and the High Refresh Rate. The first, recently supported on PS5can achieve dynamic resolution at 60 fps, while the latter can potentially push the frame rate at 120 hz during certain sequences.
On top of all that, the update adds balanced graphics modewhich targets the 40 frames per second on compatible screens, while going as high as possible in terms of rendering. The full patch note is available in English on Reddit. However, be warned that some elements of this changelog constitute a spoiler of the main story.
