Re: Horizon: Zero Dawn


[re: Chrysalis] [link to this post]
 
I think it will be fine, just with a few less effects. Perhaps Jorkilla can post a little exert for you, but I think it will hold up well.

There is the odd pop in and [very, very] rare judder, but it has only happened in random areas. Some of the very best looking areas I've seen in a game, stuffed with detail and lighting, are absolutely rock solid, even amidst a huge battle with numerous dinosaurs. That's why I posited earlier that it might have been rushed out the door, towards the end of an obviously ambitious design effort.

Fighting the "machine" equivalent of a pterodactyl and sabre tooth tiger at the same time, is really difficult, but however many times you die, beating them feels properly doable because the weapons are so intuitive. Particularly with the concentration skill enabled to slow down time when you need to.

So as of last night, I'm 29:39:39 hrs in, and 29.72% progress.

I am doing a lot of the side missions which obviously impacts on that, but still a lot of map left to see, half of the main story still to complete, and a fair few dinosaurs still to meet.

Have you tried it with the 4.50 Pro boost update?

the boost mode is for games which have no added support for the pro, horizon has native support so I expect will make no difference.

I didn't even realise 4.50 had landed until reading this! Did it in rest mode without me noticing. smile

Jack Septic Eye didn't think it did much, but I'll try it just out of interest. Then I'll try Project Cars which is supposed to benefit greatly.

did you get any manual or anything in your game?

My copy from shopto.net

No shrinkwrap on case
Scratches on disc
No manual or leaflets but is holders in the case to hold them.

Looks like they sold a return to me as new. frown

Sorry, can't help. I went digital.

Perhaps your postman had a week on it? blush

I would deffo message them about it.

I've never got a new game without shrinkwrap (or at least a seal although this is XB)

I don't remember the last time a game HAD a manual in the case so I wouldn't expect a manual at all, I do get leaflets like season pass available etc in it tho.

The shrinkwrap and leaflets missing seem a little odd to me

well they wouldnt send me the free keyring (new offer started 2 days after I ordered), given I am unhappy with the packaging I have done a new order and arranged to return/cancel this order. So I get a new copy of the game and the keyring, also the new price is £3 cheaper as well.
