horizon forbidden west update 109 patch notes

Ahoy Aloy

Guerrilla Games certainly have not been shy when it comes to applying updates and fixes to its dazzling adventure sequel Horizon Forbidden West. While the spectacular title has only been on the market a little over a month, the dev team has already rolled out numerous patches to make our girl Aloy’s journey that little more polished.

This week is no exception, as Forbidden West players on both PS4 and PS5 should find a new update awaiting the next time they log on to the PlayStation Network. Version 1.09 is mostly focused on fixing nagging issues with side-quests, objectives, and pathfinding, with tweaks applied to a litany of errands and tasks, as well as general bug stomping in regards to Forbidden West‘s luscious environment.

In addition, Guerrilla Games hopes that the new update will see the sequel run with a little more stability, reducing critical errors and improving certain load times. For completionists, a frustrating bug that rendered the Notebook incomplete has been fixed, so you can finally check off those annoying final notifications. For full details on update 109, check out the patch notes over on the Horizon Forbidden West Reddit.

Horizon Forbidden West is available now on PlayStation platforms.
