Bug fixes and changes


  • Fixed an issue where Voiceovers and Subtitles were missing in Horizon Story Origins: Horizon UK, in Race 3, Chapter 5 (Bug 3871238)
  • General performance and stability fixes


  • Fixed an issue with the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 where it wasn’t possible to tone the gear ratio while in stock configuration (Bug 3935302)
    • Developer’s Notes: As we’re unable to change the stock configuration due to technical limitations, we added a duplicate of the stock transmission which allows gear ratio customization

All bugs should posted in FH5 Report New Issues where the Forza team looks for these reports.


And so the guessing at to what car it is begins.



Amigo it’s Hyundai Ioniq 5 N Electro Hot Hatch


Uh oh another electric…could be a lookout circuit coming up lol. Seems whenever we get a hatch back that is an EV we always get lookout thrown at us.

I like them really. Porsche mission R is my favorite EV so far & absolutely fast!

Now for the highly requested car: MC20 or Sian fkp 37 coupe (already in FM) are my guesses.


Porsche Mission is a great car. Looking forward to this update…I don’t want to see a retro supercar or retro saloon for a whole season at least lol.


These 2 i wonder. :thinking:
What can it be? :thinking:

… You may like them but that’s the minority

Fiat Uno, it’s one of the most voted one. I wouldn’t mind having one, or Toyota Yaris, one of those Kalle Rovanperä special editions.

So what do u want?

Then i30 n tcr ,ioniq 6 en22 were lost, n now the ioniq 5 en1 cup n pikes peak are lost!!! :relieved:


Have driven the Ioniq 5 N irl a few times and it’s an absolute blast to launch off of traffic lights.
The fake engine sound & shifting is a marvelous feature that we’ll surely see in many other sporty EVs.

But road EV performance in-game is…yeah. Hopefully it’ll find its use.
