Forza Motorsport Update 1.0 Resolves Early Issues, Progression Complaints and More.
Just over a week after launch, acclaimed racing sim Forza Motorsport has received its first major patch in Update 1.0 for Xbox and PC. This post-release fix aims to resolve numerous bugs, improve stability, adjust content progression, and enhance the overall experience.
Despite praise for its graphics and handling, Forza Motorsport wasn’t without launch issues. Players reported performance problems, lengthy load times, career progression frustrations, and more. Developer Turn 10 has quickly responded to critical feedback with Update 1.0’s extensive fixes. You can find all the patch notes on the official support page where it was originally shared.
Addresses Online Multiplayer, Physics, and Camera Bugs
The patch focuses heavily on upgrading car progression, which was a major grievance. Unlocking upgrades and parts was deemed too slow and grindy. Update 1.0 speeds up and smooths out acquiring new customisation options.
Beyond progression tweaks, Update 1.0 also addresses online multiplayer bugs, livery editor crashes, physics wonkiness, accessibility options, and camera problems reported by the community. Specific cars also received targeted fixes.
While no graphical overhaul for PC, Xbox Series X/S versions do get minor visual touch-ups. But stability and performance fixes benefit all platforms, improving the smoothness of Forza Motorsport’s lighting-fast simulation racing. The system requirements have already been detailed, giving gamers insight into the components that are needed for a 4K 60fps experience.
Considering the years of development expectations placed on the new Forza Motorsport, some post-launch stumbles were perhaps inevitable. But Turn 10’s swift and substantial Update 1.0 shows their commitment to polishing the experience with community feedback. Fans were unhappy with the fact that there will be no split-screen or spectating at launch.
Additional issues will likely still arise, and Turn 10 emphasises this is just the first of many planned patches. But Update 1.0’s focus on frustrations shows the team’s attentiveness to optimising what’s already brilliant about the racer’s long-awaited return.
