Forza Horizon 5 First Update
Forza Horizon 5 First Update Steam

Forza Horizon 5 was released earlier this month, and it is looking pretty good, garnering good reviews from pundits and regular gamers alike. That said, the game’s first-ever update is now available for all supported platforms. It includes fixes for bugs and some exploits.

This update further improves game stability with some crash fixes. For instance, the crash that may occur when loading the EventLab has been resolved.

For multiplayer, improvements were made to the online traffic and the connections to Horizon Life.

The issue where a disconnect pop-up would prevent third-party wheels from functioning properly on PC has been addressed. So, those using such controllers can now use them without any problems.

Some exploits have been patched so that people can no longer abuse them. An exploit that involves creating specific route configurations in the EventLab, for example, has been removed.
