Forza Horizon 4's very first update packs fixes for rendering and stutter issues

Forza Horizon 4 is barely out of the gate - for non-Ultimate Edition owners that is -, and Playground Games has already pushed out an update that fixes some issues that players have been facing, primarily on the PC side of things.

Here's the full changelog that was provided for the October 1 update:

All Platforms

  • General stability and performance improvements.
  • Ultimate VIP Crown flair fixed.


  • Stutters on Xbox One X while free roaming.


  • Fixed issue when changing MSAA from 2x to 4x resulted in improper tree LOD rendering/popping until game restarted.
  • Fixed stalls and large FPS drops during Initial Drive. Affected machines where the player had insufficient RAM for their quality settings.
  • Fixed AMD GPU issue where switching MSAA settings without restarting resulted in black corruption on the environment.
  • Environment streaming improvements for min spec machines.
  • Added visual presets for Nvidia RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080Ti.
  • Fanatec CSL Wheel - fix for handbrake stuck on.
  • Wheel Force Feedback improvements.

A couple of these LOD and corruption bugs were even witnessed by a few of us here at Neowin while playing, so it's great to see fixes already being implemented. Meanwhile. the list of known issues that the developer is currently working on is quite extensive, and this forum thread lists them all. Windows 10 users should definitely make sure to update to the latest AMD or Nvidia drivers depending on their graphics cards to ensure a smooth experience.

The update weighs in at around 800MB and should automatically download in the background or when the game is launched.

Forza Horizon 4 is now available on the Xbox One family of consoles and Windows 10 PCs as an Xbox Play Anywhere game. It is available for purchase via the Microsoft Store and is also part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription program.
