Turn 10 Studios has released the inaugural patch for Forza Motorsport. Update 1.0 has addressed a myriad of issues reported since launch, notably the car progression system in the Builders Cup mode. Available on Xbox Series X|S and PC, this update includes various platform-specific fixes for the game’s stability, graphics, and physics. Forza Motorsport has received mixed reviews from players amid a range of intriguing new features.
The most prominent fix in update 1.0 is the improvement of the car progression system. Forza Motorsport debuted a new way of upgrading cars with the Builders Cup mode. For upgraded car parts, players gain car points tied to any vehicle they are racing with instead of earning credits. Despite this being an innovative strategy, players reported that it was taking too long to unlock car parts.
With the latest update, progression has been highly sped up. According to the patch notes, “most car parts should now be unlocked within a single Builders Cup series.” Moreover, upon reaching the car level 50, players will now be able to unlock specific reward discounts when intended. Last in this section is the fixed issue that caused the Xbox Series X|S players to lose progress after loading the game following an update.
Regarding stability improvements, crash scenarios have been resolved for all modes. More specific fixes include crashes occurring after upgrading a car in the Builders Cup Career Mode, during the Grand Oak Club Circuit cinematic, and when entering a Free Play race. Among graphics, the issue has been fixed that created a “washed out” look for the Xbox Series X|S players upon exiting the video menu.

In Multiplayer, a bug that was allowing players to post impossible lap times onto the Qualifying leaderboard has been taken care of. Issues with matchmaking by using Incorrect Safety Ratings and Driver Skill Ratings have been resolved. Additionally, the driver will now easily regain car control when exiting the pits in the Featured Multiplayer and start a solo race. Private Multiplayer will now allow players to download another player’s livery.
Forza Motorsport was launched after years of anticipation, and despite multiple delays, it could not live up to expectations. The disappointed Forza community slammed the title’s live-service model, calling it “half-finished.” That said, addressing player feedback and criticism Microsoft has announced years of support for the racing sensation. The aforementioned update is only the initial step in what promises to be an evolving journey for the title.
Forza Motorsport was released on October 10, 2023, on Xbox Series X|S and PC.
