What is new in today’s Horizon Zero Dawn PC update 1.11? – December 6, 2021

Graphical Improvements

  • Added Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology.
  • Added AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, replacing FidelityFX CAS.

UI Changes

  • Adjusted settings screen to facilitate the addition of DLSS and FSR.
    • Render Scale option has been removed but same result can now be accomplished by adjusting setting Upscale Method to Simple and adjusting Upscale Quality.

Performance Improvements

  • Improvement to the shader management system. This will result in a few noticeable differences:
    • There is no longer a shader pre-compilation step on startup. The game will always compile shaders during loading and in the background.
    • Stutters during gameplay that used to occur due to background shader compilation have now been significantly reduced.
    • Because shader compilation is still happening in the background you may notice the game having a higher CPU utilization while that is happening.
    • Loading screens will wait for the required shaders to be fully compiled. This may cause loading screens to take somewhat longer on certain systems.
    • On higher spec machines with faster CPUs the loading screens will typically be shorter, due to more efficient shader compilation that better leverages high-end CPUs.
