Forza Horizon 3 has been available for the general public for only a few days now, but issues are already adding up. Both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One gamers are affected by various problems, preventing them from enjoying this eagerly awaited game.

For some users, Forza Horizon 3 is completely unplayable. Gamers are reporting download and install issues, crashes, game freezes and other severe issues. There are also minor issues that don’t block the gaming experience altogether, but definitely limit it.

Many gamers are complaining the Warthog is missing after they redeem the code. The monster is nowhere to be seen, and refreshing the garage doesn’t help at all. Although the Warthog DLC is on the drive, it is not showing up in the garage.

Judging by the information revealed by one gamer who contacted Turn 10 Studios, it appears this is a known issue. The game developer and Microsoft are working to fix it, but the two companies haven’t yet officially acknowledged the problem.

I just got a message from one of the Turn 10 employees here […] saying they’ve been working with the Windows Store team on the issue, and they asked me to try again. I went to Manage Game, and I saw the Warthog Gift Car under Ready to Install. Installed it and started the game, and it told me I had a new car in my garage. Opened up “My Cars”, and there was the Warthog in all its glory. Working for me now. 🙂

Soon after this message was posted, a Turn 10 representative invited gamers to check the Ready to Install section for Forza Horizon 3 if they already redeemed the code and the Warthog isn’t showing in the game.

In other words, if you still can’t get your hands on the Warthog, you can send Mazoomah a message with the following information:

  • Gamertag
  • Where you had redeemed the code (Xbox One, Windows Store app, xbox.com)
  • If you have it, the code you had entered.

This is a good piece of news, confirming that Turn 10 Studios is currently investigating the missing Warthog issue. It also suggests that the company implicitly acknowledges this problem.
