The latest version of the Forza Horizon 3 PC update is now available. This version ( includes the Rockstar Energy Car Pack content. Apologies to all our PC players who were eagerly awaiting this update and thank you for your continued patience.

As a quick reminder, the initial FH3 January Update was actually a dev build that did nothing but download the whole game again. However, there’s also a piece of good news in this tangled story: fans got a glimpse into the upcoming car models.

Don’t forget that if you have installed the FH3 version ending with .37.2, you now need to uninstall it and install the correct playable .35.2 version. If you haven’t created a new saved game on version .37.2, then your last saved game on version .35.2 should work correctly once the update is available.

As stated above, the latest FH3 update features the Rockstar Energy Car Pack which brings seven new cars that will “kick your year off to a high-speed start”.
