Less stabbing, more story.
Horizon Zero Dawnls latest patch, among other fixes, introduces a new easier difficultly called Story Mode.
Horizon Zero Dawn’s Story Mode, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog, allows players to avoid worrying about combat by boosting player damage and reducing the amount of damage the player takes from enemies. The patch is intended to allow those who want to explore Aloy’s world and experience her adventure to do so undeterred by any difficult battles.
Patch 1.32 also makes a slew of bug and progression fixes that can be found in more detail in the full patch notes.
Story Mode comes only a few weeks after Guerrilla Games’ introduced an Ultra Hard difficulty, as well as a New Game+ mode, and more.
Previously announced story DLC, The Frozen Wilds, is also on the way after being announced at E3, set to be released on November 7. For more on the PS4 exclusive, check out our original Horizon Zero Dawn review.
