Forza Horizon 5 update addresses online stability, exploits, crashes, and more

By Sean Carey,

Playground Games has rolled out an update for Forza Horizon 5 that fixes a slew of issues, including online stability, crashes, and exploits.

One of the biggest issues Forza Horizon 5 players have been complaining about is online stability. Disconnects are frequent, and you’re often left playing Horizon solo without anyone else populating the world. This new update addresses that issue, along with other online problems such as improving online traffic and Horizon Arcade and fixing an issue in The Eliminator where Head to Heads would not end after reaching the finishing point. This update should also stop the game from crashing in a number of different situations.

Playground Games has also patched out numerous exploits with this update. The Willys Jeep exploit that would allow players to easily farm super wheelspins for credits and cars has been shut down, along with exploits relating to Challenge Cards, EventLab, driving assists, and more.

Here is the full list of patch notes from Playground Games:
