Now Playing: Horizon Zero Dawn PC Port Needs Some Work

Guerrilla Games said that they've seen the posts across social media and are continuing to investigate. They'll "update [us] as soon as we have more news."

"We appreciate those who have already taken the time to report their issues on Steam, Reddit, or via our website," the studio said in a statement on Steam. "If you are still encountering crashes or bugs, please continue to use those spaces, or refer to our FAQ if you are unsure of how to proceed. Your reports are, and have already been, incredibly helpful for our teams."

Players have started to post their own workarounds on how to avoid crashes, but nothing is guaranteed to prevent them until Guerrilla Games implements a patch. On top of the reports of crashing, GameSpot's Michael Higham encountered significant frame rate drops, stuttering, and numerous bugs like character models showing the wrong texture. You can learn more about Higham's experience in the video above.
