Horizon Zero Dawn's latest PC update is out although there's not much to see - Guerilla Games just wanted to stomp out the major bugs before digging into the new instalment.

So, Horizon Zero Dawn's major ailments have been fixed, and on two platforms nevertheless. Speaking of platforms, one of the crashes fixed in 1.10 was caused by continuous pressing on the Windows key, but PlayStation games don't seem to like that one bit. 

Jokes aside, also fixed were the AMD saving bug and a number of crashes and graphics glitches, but for all intents and purposes - PC development is done and dusted. Guerilla will be keeping an eye out for any major bugs, as the Horizon Zero Dawn's PC team moves on Forbidden West.

"As our team continues development on our upcoming title Horizon Forbidden West, we are shifting to less frequent updates for Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC after this patch. Please note that we will continue to monitor our community spaces as always", they wrote.

They also thanked Horizon Zero Dawn's PC players who helped them narrow down a few pretty elusive issues.
