How to fix motion blur and download DLC in Horizon Forbidden West

Despite the excellent optimization of Horizon Forbidden West, a new exclusive from Sony, there are a few minor issues in the game. Not all players were able to get bonus items for pre-ordering, and they also experienced the severe blurring of the image. In this guide, we'll show you how to fix motion blur and download DLC in Horizon Forbidden West.

How to Fix Image Blur

This issue occurs when you use performance mode. Higher frame rates but lower resolutions result in blurry images. First of all, you need to remove this feature. Follow these steps to turn off motion blur:

  1. Press the options button (three vertical sticks) on your controller to pause the game.
  2. Go to "Settings" and open "Picture".
  3. Find the item "Speed ​​Effect" and switch it to the "Off" position.
Even if this option is turned off, the game will still have a slight amount of motion blur. You can make the game clearer by turning off the performance mode. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Option key on your device again and open Settings.
  2. Go to the "Image" tab.
  3. In the "Graphics Mode" section, select "Resolution Priority".

These actions will reduce the frame rate per second (FPS), but the image will look much sharper. Also, if blurring appears in quality mode, it is recommended to turn off HDR in the game settings or reduce the sharpness in the TV settings.

To disable HDR, follow these steps:

  1. Press the option key and go to "Settings".
  2. Open the "Image" tab and open the "Dynamic Range" item.
  3. Switch the HDR Rendering option to Off.

Pre-order codes not working. How to download and get the DLC

In the special editions of the game, there are three codes for additional materials: a soundtrack, a comic, and outfits for the heroine. Some players are missing a variety of pre-order gear bonuses. To fix the error, first complete the prologue of the game.

The player will be able to obtain special costumes (Carja Elite Robe and Nora Elite Thunder Robe), weapons (Behemoth Carja Shortbow and Nora Thunder Sling), and other materials in the first settlement. You will find items in your stash. If they are missing, then it is recommended to do this later after a while.

Also restart your console (PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5) and try again. In the event of errors, please contact the store where you purchased the game or contact PlayStation Support via the link.
