Monthly Rivals not available

Bug Info: Monthly Rivals cannot be entered from either the Seasonal Playlist or the Monthly Rivals menu. When the game attempts to load a rival, it fails and displays dashes in place of the rival’s time. It is not possible for the player to proceed to enter the Rivals event. Occasionally, the Monthly Rivals events do not even display in the Seasonal Playlist, but may appear again after the game is rebooted or the menu is closed and reopened.

Platform: PC (Win 10, Microsoft Store) and Xbox One X tested, presenting the exact same behavior

Happening to me as well. Standard FH5, Steam Version

EDIT: It just loaded for me, the servers were probably down or very slow

I can’t get Rivals at the moment - UK - anyone else experiencing difficulty?


I’d say the answer is very much yes. There’s a ton of people who have the same issue. For me the Monthly Rivals even disappears completely from the Seasonal Playlist.

Rivals can not be entered for some reason, from the festival playlist if you are in the any of the festival sites, or in any of the houses, so you have to go into free roam, pause the game, and then into the festival playlist from there, and then it usually works, at least for me on xbox one x, i see that may not be the only issue, but at least one bit of help.
