Horizon: Zero Dawn update 1.10 adjusts item economy, fixes loads of progression and technical issues, more

21 Mar

Horizon: Zero Dawn players should log into the game today and download the latest patch.

horizon_zero_dawn_header_2

According to Guerrilla Games, along with fixing progression, technical issues and crashes in Horizon: Zero Dawn, it also comes with new features.

A patch can’t solve all your problems, but maybe our Horizon Zero Dawn guide and walkthrough can.

Guerrilla warns the patch notes may contain spoilers, so if you haven’t finished the game or play it yet, you may wish to avert your eyes.

One more thing: an issue occurs in 1.10 when the player buys an outfit or weapon they already own. This will be fixed in an upcoming patch.

Horizon: Zero Dawn 1.10 Patch Notes

Additions

  • Added the ability to press and hold [X] to buy multiple items from merchants.
  • Added an option to invert the X-axis from the controls tab on the settings menu.

Adjustments

  • Made several minor adjustments to the item economy (drop rate, distribution, cost etc.).
  • Made several adjustments to humanoid and machine AI.
  • Made minor adjustments to 2.1 stereo mix on menu sounds.

Fixes

Progression Fixes

  • Fixed an issue in the main quest “The Point of the Spear” where some players could be teleported outside the quest area during the objective “Loot the Sawtooth Carcass”.

  • Fixed an issue in the main quest “The Proving” where players would be put back into the last checkpoint for the quest, making it impossible to continue the game.
  • Fixed an issue in “The War-Chief’s Trail” where fast- travelling away and back when Sona reached the cliff would sometimes prevent Sona’s A.I. from working correctly.
  • Fixed an issue in the sub quest “Revenge of the Nora” where some players could be blocked from progressing due to an invisible collision near the third bandit camp.
  • Fixed an issue in the quest “The Sun Shall Fall” where some players fast-travelling immediately after destroying the Sonic Device would be unable to progress upon returning to the gate.
  • Fixed an issue in the main quest “The Face of Extinction” where the Day 1 Patch did not offer a solution for the roll over problem of certain players who had side quests active while completing the quest.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “The Forgotten” where it was very difficult for some players to climb the trail to Olara.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Robbing the Rich” where the objective “Return to Ravan” would not complete for some players after collecting the sword.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Robbing the Rich” where no quest marker or breadcrumbing was displayed for some players on the objective “Follow the Tracks”.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Robbing the Rich” where Rokasha went missing for some players if they accepted another quest while following the blood trail and then reloaded their save data after speaking to Keadi.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Robbing the Rich” where Nasan would be walking around in the courtyard and could not be interacted with by some players.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Luck of the Hunt” where dropping boar skins after collecting all 4 would cause the boar skin objective to be unobtainable for some players.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Healer’s Oath” where Patch 1.04 did not offer a retroactive solution for certain players who were unable to progress after dropping the Thunderjaw heart from the Special Items tab.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Traitor’s Bounty” where Vanasha would not appear on the objective “Talk to Vanasha” after finishing “The Face of Extinction” for some players.
  • Fixed an issue in the side quest “Hunter’s Blind” where the “Show on map” option on the Quest screen was grayed out and no quest marker appeared on the map or compass during the objective “Follow Talanah” for some players.
  • Fixed an issue in the area “Cauldron Xi” where some players were able to escape the core chamber during the “Defend the core” objective.
  • Fixed an issue where some players could clear Corruption Zones from a distance without completing its associated quest and trophy.
  • Fixed several issues where some players could become stuck in bunkers and cauldrons after completing “The Face of Extinction”.

General Fixes

  • Fixed an issue in the main quest “The Point of the Spear” where the time of day dialogue option would erroneously unlock when reloading the game, after speaking to Rost at the beginning of the quest.
  • Fixed an issue in the main quest “A Seeker at the Gates” where the gates of the Embrace were wide open.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy to feature the biggest area in any Uncharted game, no Nathan Drake cameos

20 Mar

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is going to offer a different experience from the main game, and not just because Nathan Drake won’t be involved.

uncharted_lost_legacy_environment_art_1

Naughty Dog is currently working on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, the standalone DLC to Uncharted 4.

The developer revealed only a few small details when the project was first announced last year, and now, we get to learn a lot more. In a blog post, Sony revealed a bunch of new information about the setting, gameplay, and whether or not Nathan Drake will be making an appearance.

The Lost Legacy is set six to 12 months after the events of the main game, and it takes place in southern India. The story revolves around the search for the Tusk of Ganesh, the artefact Chloe and Nadine will have to team up in order to find. The blog post doesn’t say how they meet, but it does confirm that it’s Chloe who initiates the hunt.

Naughty Dog also confirmed that The Lost Legacy will include the single biggest level in franchise history, and that’s just one of several environment the DLC will let us explore. We’ll be able to explore at our own pace, the developer promised, with more secrets and hidden throughout.

The developer also said it’ll incorporate lessons learned during the development of the main game into The Lost Legacy, such as balancing environmental puzzles with action moments, climbing and so on. Overall, the DLC will feature a number of different environments outside of the lush jungles typical of this part of the world.

These big levels will also invite a stealth gameplay, which Naughty Dog will expand on by including the series’ first silenced pistol. Set pieces will return, and Naughty Dog promised they’d do things the studio has never done before.

It was also confirmed that Nathan Drake will not be a playable character, or even make a cameo in this DLC. “We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character, but everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4,” the developer said.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is out sometime this year on PS4.

PlayStation 3 production to end soon in Japan

17 Mar

It looks like we’re nearing end-of-life for the ol’ trusty PlayStation 3.

playstation_ps3

Sony will cease manufacturing the PlayStation 3 in Japan soon.

Though the company has not made an official announcement, the store page for the 500GB model confirms that “shipments are scheduled to end soon” (via Gematsu). The 500GB model is currently the only PS3 model still in production.

This end date could be as soon as March, according to a Tweet from a Japanese retailer. When manufacturing ends in Japan, it usually means the West will soon follow.

Released in 2006, the PS3 will celebrate its 11th year on the market this November. At launch, Sony promised to support the console for ten years. The 500GB model mentioned above is the Super Slim, the console’s final revision which launched in 2012.

By comparison, Microsoft ceased manufacturing of the Xbox 360 in April last year. Maybe now is a good time to make sure your unit works, if you intend to keep it for some time.

Horizon: Zero Dawn has sold over 2.6M units globally, is best-selling new first party IP launch on PS4 to-date

16 Mar

Horizon: Zero Dawn has been out for just two weeks now, and it has already sold millions of copies worldwide. And guess what? A story expansion is in the works.

horizon_zero_dawn_art

Since it’s launch on February 28, Horizon: Zero Dawn has sold over 2.6 million units globally.

This makes it the best-selling new first party IP launch on PS4 to-date and Guerrilla’s biggest debut ever, according to Sony.

The figure includes both disc sell-through quantities and digital sales through the PlayStation Store.

“We’re thrilled that Horizon Zero Dawn has been embraced by critics and players alike,” said Guerrilla MD Hermen Hulst.

“Developing the game was a labor of love, so it’s extremely satisfying to see that it elicits the same passion and enthusiasm from the gaming public that we felt during its development.”

Hulst went on to say the team is “already hard at work on an expansion to the story,” as this is only the “beginning of Aloy’s story and our exploration of the world of Horizon: Zero Dawn.”

Sony has said previously Horizon: Zero Dawn has “a lot of potential” to become a new franchise, going to far as to call Aloy “a PlayStation icon of the future.”

The game has received rather nice scores across the board, and we provided our take on it too in case you missed it. Also, if you are just picking it up and need some pointers, be sure to check out our guide.

Uncharted 4 is getting a permanent King of the Hill multiplayer mode this week

15 Mar

The next free content update for Uncharted 4 drops this week with a new mode, weapons, vanity items and other fun things.

uncharted_4

Naughty Dog announced during its Uncharted 4 multiplayer livestream today it was adding a permanent King of the Hill game mode. Here, two teams will fight over rotating capture points in order to reach the score limit.

There’s a twist, though: after the score limit has been reached, the losing team has a change to make a comeback by capturing Victory Hill. The leading team will need to capture this to win, but if the losing team takes it, they get a second chance.

Three new weapons are coming with the update: NSAS and Type-95 long guns and a scoped Competition Pistol. Vanity skins are also included. These Savage Starlight character skins were inspired by the in-game comics strewn across The Last of Us.

The free multiplayer update to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s end will arrive on Friday, March 17 alongside the 1.21 patch.

drawn_to_death

What’s more, the day it becomes available for Plus members will be Drawn to Death’s release day, April 4.

Announced during Sony’s PlayStation Experience in 2014, the third-person shooter brawler takes place inside the pages of a notebook. Created by a high-school student, the drawings come to life and shoot it out in competitive online action.

Since its announcement, David Jaffe and his team at The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency have added new features to the game, which he detailed in full over on the PS Blog.

  • Sphinx Missions: Wake the Sphinx and solve eight battle-focused riddles. For every riddle solved, a new weapon or level will be unlocked.
  • Character-centric Missions: Besides leveling, players can take on 15 missions per each of the six launch characters. Earn costumes and rare Taunts working through characters. Master all character missions and the player could come “face to face with the Volcano God.”
  • Mystery Boxes: The boxes are filled with taunts and character skins. Get a free Mystery Box by playing three matches online and then earn Mystery Boxes for every 150 kills on the battlefield.
  • Climb the Tower: The launch tower is based on the theme Dark Fairy Tales. Play in ranked mode and earn a chance to reach the top of the tower. A sticker will be handed out for every floor reached.
  • Insane Mystery Special Offer: A surprise not ready to be detailed – only the hint: “Destroy my enemies and my life… is yours!”

If you’d like a look at the game in-action, Jaffe and co. will be hosting a livestream on Twitch later today.

It kicks off at 3pm PT/6pm ET/10pm Uk.

Horizon Zero Dawn update 1.04 fixes heaps of bugs, doesn’t actually double your outfit stats, sorry – full patch notes

14 Mar

Horizon Zero dawn has been updated to address a few bugs and progression issues. Some story mission spoilers follow.

Horizon Zero Dawn™_20170228160316

Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the most polished open world games we’ve ever seen, but projects of this scale can never be perfect. Of course Guerrilla hasn’t given up on that front, and here comes a new update to take us one step closer.

A patch can’t solve all your problems, but maybe our Horizon Zero Dawn guide and walkthrough can.

Horizon Zero Dawn 1.04 is all about fixing bugs, apparently. Although we didn’t have any progression problems, it looks like some players did, as Guerrilla has trotted out a lew of fixes in main and side quests. Unfortunately there’s one instance where you’ll need to reload an earlier save, if you have one, even after applying the patch.

Some time after posting the patch Guerrilla discovered a new bug introduced with Horizon Zero Dawn 1.04, which makes it seem like all outfit stats have been doubled. This is only a UI error, unfortunately; you’re not actually as fireproof as you think you are. Something to bear in mind as you forge into battle.

Here are the full patch notes for the Horizon Zero Dawn 1.4 update.

    Main quests

  • Fixed an issue in “The Proving” where one of the attackers would fall down the slope.
  • Fixed an issue in “The Womb of the Mountain” where the spear would not be in Aloy’s inventory if players opened a treasure box with a DLC item before retrieving Aloy’s weapons. Note: Players who have already encountered the issue will need to reload from a game saved prior to this quest.
  • Fixed an issue in “A Seeker at the Gates” where players would be able to enter the gates of Mother’s Watch when fast-traveling to this location.
  • Fixed an issue in “A Seeker at the Gates” where the quest objective would not update from “Go to the Carja Border Fort” to “Kill the corrupted machines”.
  • Fixed an issue in “A Seeker at the Gates” where players could not progress through the Carja Fort.
  • Fixed an issue in “The City of the Sun” where Erend wouldn’t spawn after the dialogue with him ended if players rushed past the civilians on the bridge.
  • Fixed an issue in “The Sun Shall Fall” where players couldn’t return to Dervahl if they fast-traveled during the objective “Talk to Dervahl”.
  • Fixed an issue in “The Grave Hoard” where skipping the conversation with Sylens at the end of the quest and immediately restarting would prevent “To Curse the Darkness” from starting.
  • Fixed an issue in “Deep Secrets of the Earth” where players couldn’t enter the bunker if they fast-traveled away from the objective after they had interacted with the bunker.
