Guerrilla Games rolled out Horizon Forbidden West update 1.16 in the wee hours of Saturday in order to fix major crashes that were introduced by the big New Game+ update. The developer urged fans to update their game before proceeding in order to avoid losing saves.
Horizon Forbidden West update 1.16 details
Following update 1.15, players on both the PlayStation 4 and 5 reported that they experienced crashes that corrupted game saves created before the major update where a job was in progress. The bad news is that it doesn’t look like lost saves can be recovered. But the good news is, the issue has been promptly fixed and shouldn’t happen again provided that you download the update.
Hi everyone! We’ve just launched Update 1.16 on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, which fixes a crash that affected save games created before 1.15 where a job was in progress. Please be sure to update your game!
Happy Saturday, and happy exploring out in the wilds
