Horizon 5

It’s safe to say, and Xbox/PC gamers can attest, that the Forza franchise has delivered some of the best car racing games in history.

However, Horizon 5 players that enjoyed the title on Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, have been constantly struggling after the major patch update that introduced a huge number of problems last week.

Now creators managed to rectify the biggest of the issues introduced by the above-mentioned update and we can all go back to the way things were before.

Series X/S players n olonger have to deal with save problem

Actually, the biggest issue for many players was a saving problem on Xbox Series X|S consoles, which made it nearly impossible to engage with many parts of the game without frequent freezes and restarts.

Playground Games released another hotfix update for Forza Horizon 5 yesterday, whose sole purpose is to fix this problem and nothing more.

The repair software is now available to install on Xbox Series X and Series S and you’re looking at about 2GB of extra space.

We recommended that you install updates as soon as they become available so that you can connect to online features, but it’s especially important in this case if you’ve been encountering the dreaded save issue bug.

Playground Games recently spoke about new features and content coming to Forza Horizon 5 with a new Festival Playlist on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021.

The Series 2 and 3 updates will add 24 new cars, a ton of new events and challenges, new decorations to the world, and much more.

Remember that Forza Horizon 5 is already availble on Steam and through the Xbox Game Pass so, if you haven’t already tried it, go ahead and take your favorite care out for a test drive.
