Next up, traction control will be reactivated after restarting an EventLab from the finish screen in Forza Horizon 5. The bug causing the racing game to crash after receiving an invisible “DLC Car” gift will also be rectified in this update. Furthermore, the Eliminator timeout bar displaying the incorrect time and eliminating players early will not be a problem anymore after this patch.

The “Racing Champion” accolade will also unlock if you win the Horizon Open event in Forza Horizon 5 following this patch. Moreover, the 2021 Audi RS6 Avant steering wheel had inverted shift paddles and incorrect media controls, but this patch will fix this issue. Players will also not have to worry about the Anti-lag pop animation missing on specific cars and body kit combinations in the playground title after this series update.

In addition, the player’s character won’t disappear after you save a photo mode preset in Forza Horizon 5 from now on. Quick chat phrases will show up when using the Logitech G920 d-pad in Freeroam or events following this patch. The major addition in the Upgrade Heroes series update is the Hi-Low story from the American automotive content brand Donut Media.
