Beware Forza Horizon 3 Latest Update Causing Save File Corruption On PC
Playground games just launched a new update for Forza Horizon 3 that brought Rockstar Energy Car Pack with some new cars. However, the update not only brings new cars but a save file corrupting bug too.
Since the update hit, many players have reported that the latest update for Forza Horizon 3 is corrupting their save files and in some cases corrupting the entire game. Also, this bug is only occurring for the PC version of Forza Horizon 3.
The developers have since taken down the update, but those who have already updated should revert back to the previous version or else risk losing their save files. According to devs:
The incorrect PC version of FH3 has now been removed and replaced. PC players who have the FH3 version ending with .37.2 should immediately uninstall that version of the game, then re-install. The correct playable version should end in .35.2.
NOTE: PC players who completed the download of .37.2 and then started a new game save will have a corrupted saved game. Avoid creating a new saved game on .37.2, and only play on .35.2 to avoid this issue. As long as you have an existing save and have not created a new one on .37.2, your saved game will work correctly once the update is available.
As a reminder, you can check your version number on the launch screen where you sign in.
Forza Horizon 3 is one of the most visually impressive games out there and the game pushes the Xbox One to its limits. However, according to game’s Creative Director Ralph Fulton, Xbox One still has a lot to offer.
He further added that it has been few years since the launch of the console, and developers are just starting to understand how things work.
Forza Horizon 3 is an open-world racing game developed by Playground Studios for PC and Xbox One.
