We’re aware that Steam users have been able to receive the update but it is not yet available for WinPC and Xbox users. We’ll let you know when that release is confirmed.

Update: my own Series X console now shows the update available. (8.6 GB)

If your device doesn’t automatically download the update, try a restart and then look to see if you can update manually.

Hahahahahahahaha. Why lol?


@ManteoMax presumably the still-bugged playlist items from past series haven’t been fixed (even though it’s well-known, annoying and is easily fixed as has been shown more than once), can you confirm this?

[Staff edit - all posts must be in English - MM]

PGG monthly development planning.

Project manager: Hi team, today we will be planning what features/fixes we will work on over the next 4 weeks. Who would like to start?

Dev1: Our metrics show that alot of players have been encountering network issues. I’ve identified the issue and believe we can fix it.

Project manager: That’s great. Anyone else?

Dev2: Alot of players have been complaining about leaderboards. I really think we should fix them now.

Project manager: I agree, it’s top priority.

A few moments later Mike Brown enters the room…

Mike Brown: OMG everyone sorry I’m late. I was just at star bucks getting my frappicino and like OMG OMG I saw this cute little girl with a hearing aid and instantly knew this is what our players want and need.

Project manager: gulp


Counted 7 bugs on the APR kit so far :smiling_face_with_tear:
Might be a bit salty after wasting 2 hours in the livery creator.
I get that it’s a challange to have propper mapping and allignment when the liveries need to fit on the car with and without bodykit, but pls check in Q&A that the kit can be propperly wrapped and nothing shifts between the garage and free roam,…

I’m compiling details for PG to sum up any issues found in today’s update - could you specify more about what those bugs are?

mostly small spots that can’t be wrapped and a small shift on the left side.

Edit, this also came up:

Edit2: Just got told that the shift is due to World car level of detail setting. It disasappears when I increase the setting.

Unfortunately, the game cannot be played after the latest update. There are drops to 0 fps and the max value is 25 fps where on the same settings there was no drop below 30 fps !!!

I’ll make a note but please read this thread and submit a ticket to Forza Support so they can investigate your details:

Im having issues online iv tried everything iv made a post on my profile thats still unsolved

Man, this update effectively added nothing, not even in the fixes that mattered. Still waiting on the 350z and the E46 M3 sounds to be swapped since it’s been a problem since, you know, day one.

They added hearing aids so that the devs can finally hear us.


Perfect for all these EVs they’re adding. You gotta hear that engine roar.

Just noticed the startup time seems to have dropt drastically on pc. Well done!

this doesn’t appear in the customization section

I’m glad they make efforts to be inclusive, but holy bananas that’s alot of effort put into hearing aids…

Shame we don’t get cars and other requested items that the other 98.7% of players want.
