Just a day or so after it’s release, a fix for the Horizon Forbidden West‘s shimmering issue has been rolled out, thanks to some speedy work from the developers.
Players noticed the game’s visuals were marred by an odd shimmering effect (or maybe enhanced if you like shimmery things), especially on performance mode. Some players suggested stopgap solutions such as re-enabling motion blur if you turned it off, but Guerilla came through with an official solution. All you need to do to get the online update is to restart the game. Twice.
With the fix installed, the shimmers should be left behind, and you can focus on the game as you journey the Earth as Aloy.
