Guer­ril­la Games released the details of Hori­zon: Zero Dawn’s first patch and the team actu­al­ly changed a bit, includ­ing a lot of bugs caus­ing crash­es. 

Not only did Guer­ril­la patch Zero Dawn, they also gave the game a very recent hot­fix, which changed two bal­anc­ing issues. So far, the team has been doing great mak­ing sure the game is run­ning the way it is sup­posed to and mak­ing sure the bal­ance is prop­er is just as impor­tant. They are also encour­ag­ing play­ers to let them know what they think.
