Alongside the Hot Wheels expansion, a significant performance upgrade is also racing to Forza Horizon 3 next month, a major moment for the popular racing game that originally suffered major performance issues when it launched on PC. Back then, gamers had trouble running Forza Horizon 3 at 60fps and beyond and while performance later improved, a stuttering issue remained for certain areas of the game. Players aired their frustration on Reddit with a sliver of optimism concerning the title’s upcoming improvements:

I hope this patch fixes the downgrades, or at least doesn’t downgrade the visuals further. One of the last updates cranked the LOD so low that shadows would pop in barely 50 yards away in the outback. Also the shaders took a huge hit. Carbon fiber looks so much worse now than the game did on launch.

Forza community managerIan Webster confirmed on NeoGAF that the PC version of Horizon 3 will receive “significant improvements” in the form of a patch set to release alongside the Hot Wheels expansion on May 9th:

We have some significant improvements for Windows 10 players coming at the same time as this new expansion (May 9). These changes include improved new support for numerous popular driving wheels, improved CPU performance, additional graphical options, and more. We’ll be revealing more details about these at the time of release.

Webster also vowed to disclose more details about the changes soon. Meanwhile, Hot Wheels is the second and final expansion for Horizon 3 set to roll out May 9th on both PC and Xbox One.
