We are very excited to bring you the Beta version of Horizon with today's update!
When I look back, the game has come a long way since the Alpha launch on Early Access. And this is in large part due to your suggestions and feedback, which have guided our efforts to make Horizon a better Horizon!
While this will be a substantial update, we are also not done yet and with your continued involvement we plan to continue to add and improve things further in the coming months.
We look forward to seeing your comments once you have tried the update! Enjoy the game and thanks for your support! - Raf
