Just months after being acquired by Sony, Nixxes Software is already helping deliver patches for the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn. Developer Guerrilla games revealed that Nixxes helped with the recent release of the Version 1.11.1 patch for Horizon Zero Dawn on the PC which included various bug fixes. Looks like Sony’s investment is already paying off.
A huge shoutout to our friends at @NixxesSoftware who helped our teams with the recent PC patches! ❤

Specifically, the latest patch fixes many issues associated with the Nvidia DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) settings. The news is unsurprising when considering Nixxes Software’s extensive experience in porting console games to PC. It’s only normal that a developer such as Guerrilla Games would enlist the help of a fellow PlayStation studio to help out with patches.
The fact that the Nixxes Software is working on Horizon Zero Dawn is notable, however, as Nixxes’ current projects are still unknown. It also confirms previous statements from Sony that Nixxes would help port its IPs to PC. Horizon Zero Dawn was also one of the first PlayStation exclusive titles to release on PC, followed by Days Gone. More recently, Sony announced that God of War would be coming to PC as well, though Vancouver-based Jetpack Interactive will be in charge of porting the game.
Regardless, it’s promising to hear that a prominent studio such as Nixxes is helping out in other PlayStation Studios’ ventures. Before its acquisition, Nixxes Software worked on the PC ports of other games such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
