Just as promised last week, Guerrilla Games has once again updated the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn in order to fix some of the glaring issues the port is currently facing. Patch 1.01 addressed some more minor issues, but this latest update is a more substantial one that delves into V-sync and frame rate issues. Update 1.02 is available for Horizon Zero Dawn on PC right now, and you can get a look at the full patch notes below.
