Horizon: Zero Dawn's Next Update Lets Aloy Pose And Make Faces In Photo Mode

Sony announced that next week, Horizon Zero Dawn is receiving an update (Patch 1.20). One of the more interesting tidbits from the patch notes, which you can read in full here, are that you can make Aloy pose and make faces for the camera in photo mode.

Some of these include Aloy forming her hands into the shape of a heart (pictured above) and lounging on her back. Several new facial expressions are being added, as well as three filters, such as a postcard-themed one that displays "Greetings From" on the photo.

Outside of photo mode, other changes are coming too. The HUD is getting some upgrades, such as a blue status bar appearing above Aloy's health bar whenever she activates her Shield Weaver Armor. The map is also receiving some updates, such as new filters and legends to make travel easier. Spanish subtitles will also be added and a Spanish voiceover pack is becoming available as of next week in the PlayStation Store.

Ubisoft Is Teasing Something Related To Far Cry 3

Ubisoft France's Instagram and Facebook account have shared an image that looks strikingly similar to Rook Island, the setting of Far Cry 3. It's been nearly five years since the game released, though it's unclear exactly what Ubisoft's intentions surrounding the tease are.

A caption beside the photo, written in French, translates to: "An island that we never really left. Does that remind you of something?" You can view the image below, or check out the Instagram link at the bottom of this page.

We have reached out to Ubisoft for further comment. The latest installment to the series, Far Cry Primal, came out last year. Read our review here.
