Playground Games has returned from the holiday break to provide an update for the community on an upcoming Forza Horizon 5 patch to fix accolades and issues with steering wheels, handbrakes, leaderboards and more. Here’s a rundown.
- Issues with Accolades not unlocking or resetting is being looked into, along with the misleading and confusing descriptions for them.
- The team is looking to introduce the ability to save and edit EventLab content post-creation.
We know the Festival Playlist has been an area of concern for Forza Horizon 5 players. We’re taking the necessary steps to ensure that future challenges and objectives can be completed by all players. In addition, we’re working on a solution to retroactively apply points for bugged Daily Challenges and Treasure Hunt events in Series 1 and Series 2. This will also unlock the “Min, Meet Max” achievement for those who had completed all other events and challenges within a series. Stay tuned for additional details. In the meantime, we’re aware of an issue that shows the incorrect total value of Series Points earned by some players when viewing a previous Series Playlist. Our team has identified that this is caused by the auto-completion of the Horizon Tour in each season and we’re currently investigating a solution.
- Issues with PC wheel support, including crashing when closing pop ups or Wheelspins with a Fanatec wheel is being looked into, as well as missing wheel mapping on the Hori Force Feedback wheel and a lack of rumble functionality separate to force-feedback. The team is aware of the loss of force feedback for Logitech wheels after suspending the game. Thrustmaster and Fanatec handbrakes should work more consistently after the upcoming patch.
- Erroneous lap times and high scores being posted to Rivals and PR Stunts leaderboards are being investigated.
Many other issues are currently being identified and investigated. For all known Forza Horizon 5 issues, make sure to check the official post.
