Guerrilla Games have released Horizon Zero Dawn update 1.11 for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store! Horizon Zero Dawn update 1.11 adds Nvidia DLSS & AMD Fidelity FX support to the game alongside some enhancements. Check out patch notes below:
Added Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology.
Added AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, replacing FidelityFX CAS.
Adjusted settings screen to facilitate the addition of DLSS and FSR.
Render Scale option has been removed but same result can now be accomplished by adjusting setting Upscale Method to Simple and adjusting Upscale Quality.
Improvement to the shader management system. This will result in a few noticeable differences:
There is no longer a shader pre-compilation step on startup. The game will always compile shaders during loading and in the background.
Stutters during gameplay that used to occur due to background shader compilation have now been significantly reduced.
Because shader compilation is still happening in the background you may notice the game having a higher CPU utilization while that is happening.
Loading screens will wait for the required shaders to be fully compiled. This may cause loading screens to take somewhat longer on certain systems.
On higher spec machines with faster CPUs the loading screens will typically be shorter, due to more efficient shader compilation that better leverages high-end CPUs.
The sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, releases on February 18th 2022 for PS4 and PS5. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest gaming news and updates!
