Horizon Forbidden West Releases Update 1.25

Update 1.25 for Horizon Forbidden West is now live, and it fixes various issues with the game. Horizon Forbidden West received positive reviews when it launched in February 2022, and developer Guerrilla Games released an expansion pack called Burning Shores in April 2023.

Guerrilla Games has rolled out several patches to Horizon Forbidden West since the game’s inception, fixing bugs and adding new features. For example, Horizon Forbidden West’s 1.21 patch added some useful quality-of-life improvements, such as an option to allow users to automatically pick up loot, as well as a Oceanophobia mode and other accessibility features. Patch 1.25 for Horizon Forbidden West is out now and aims to fix various issues in different parts of the game.

The full patch notes for Horizon Forbidden West update 1.25 detail fixes for various issues related to its main quest, side events, performance, UI, and more. This update fixes a bug in the Burning Shores DLC main story, such as players not marking some objectives as completed despite completing them. As far as open world events go, Horizon Forbidden West’s 1.25 patch fixes an issue that caused chests to spawn below geometry, as well as a few issues that prevented players from progressing further.

This update also fixes an issue where the weapon wheel was displaying the incorrect amount of ammo for the Specter Gauntlet. For gamers who haven’t played the DLC yet, the Specter Gauntlet is a new weapon added in the Burning Shores expansion pack, and it’s one of the best new weapons in Aloy’s arsenal, alongside the Emperor’s Reign Hunter Bow. Finally, patch 1.25 for Horizon Forbidden West fixes a few miscellaneous issues, such as cases where the wrong sound effect was playing when picking up a dye flower.

Guerrilla Games has released several updates for Horizon Forbidden West since the release of the Burning Shores DLC. Horizon Forbidden West patch 1.24, which was released on May 17, also contains a large number of fixes, and update 1.25 looks to be on a similar level. While many of these patches were aimed at addressing issues present in the new expansion, there were also patches that made other general improvements to the game.

Fans of the series should note that a sequel to Horizon Forbidden West is currently in development at the studio. Since Sony hasn’t officially announced the game, not much is known about the game, and a sequel could be years away.
