Guerrilla Games has released multiple patch updates for Horizon Forbidden West since its release.

In particular, a visual issue with shimmering objects was fixed earlier in the summer. Digital Foundry noted that with this change, the 60fps performance mode is the optimal way to play the game.

The game has also seen an uptick in sales due to its ongoing inclusion in a PlayStation 5 console bundle.
