Latest Horizon Forbidden West patch fixes it to where you no longer get stuck in the bathroom

No one likes being stuck in the bathroom. Guerrilla Games has released patch 1.12 for Horizon Forbidden West, and contains plenty of fixes for quests, machines, and other multiple issues. There are some known issues the patch doesn’t fix that the development team is working to address. These include continuing to make tweaks to reduce visual shimmering, the inability to trade with Abadund, the inability to complete the Frostclaw-related quest, issues with progression in some missions, and outfits appearing to be covered by dark shadows in inventory. As far as what’s been fixed is concerned, the funniest issue (and probably…

The curse of Horizon has struck again with Forbidden West

First, it was Breath of the Wild. Now, it’s Elden Ring. Will Guerrilla Games ever catch a break? What is it with the Horizon series and coming out right before genre-shaking barnstormers? Horizon: Forbidden West is excellent with a few trickly foibles, just as Horizon: Zero Dawn was. But now my life is all Elden Ring for the foreseeable future, and with some other pretty hot games on the medium-term horizon… I just can’t see myself finding any more time to play it. This all happened before, remember? Horizon: Zero Dawn released on February 28, 2017. It was a neat…

This Horizon Forbidden West Clawstrider goes a step beyond PS5 graphics

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. Sure, the PlayStation 5 graphics for Horizon Forbidden West are realistic – but if we ever saw a Clawstrider like this in real life, we’d be bricking it. If you’ve already booted up Horizon Forbidden West, you’ll know that the game is one hell of a looker. And it looks as gorgeous on PS4 as it does on PS5, somehow. But if all the work the Decima Engine is doing to make Aloy’s latest adventure look mouth-watering is still, somehow,…

Horizon Forbidden West review: Another beautiful string to Aloy’s bow, despite some open world drawbacks

You’ve just slid under a robotic elephant’s tusk as it tried to gore you with the entirety of its 10-tonne-plus weight. Some of your flowing red hair caught the tip of its kevlar tusk. But that hasn’t phased you; you look up, pull out an explosive spear and jam it under the beast’s jaw. A dodge roll to safety, a quick sprint behind a nearby knoll, and a look over your shoulder tells you it was a clean hit – the resulting explosion took the beast’s plated armour clean off. You notch an arrow to your bow, concentrate as you…

Have you huffed and sighed in frustration as Lara Croft bonked uselessly against an underwater wall in a cave for the 800th time?
