Horizon: Zero Dawn Patch 1.20 Launching Next Week

A flood of changes will wash over Horizon: Zero Dawn soon.

Guerrilla Games has released details of the latest patch for its open-world adventure gameĀ Horizon: Zero Dawn. Patch 1.20 is set to launch during the week of May 8, and it promises to pack a pretty cool punch. The update fixes a slew of progression issues, scrubs away technical hiccups that affect collision and sound, tacks on three new categories to the crafting menu, and introduces a ton of updates to the game's Photo Mode.

The new Horizon patch also adds to the title a handful of head-up display (HUD) options that allow players to tuck away enemy statistics, quest points, head gear, tutorial tips and tricks, and much more. Additionally, patch 1.20 ties in Spanish language support in North American copies of Horizon: Zero Dawn. Players can purchase a voice-over pack, which supports Spanish audio, through the PlayStation Store. The patch allows for Spanish subtitles to be enabled as well.
