New Forza Horizon 3 PC Patch Released Today, Targets Performance

A new Forza Horizon 3 PC patch has been released today, targeting performance on the PC version of Playground Games’ newest offering. The patch comes after reports that the PC version of the game has been having problems recently, ranging from frame rate problems to serious performance issues when trying to run it at 60 frames per second.

The Xbox One version of the game doesn’t have these problems, as there the game is locked to 30 frames per second. The patch will be working on the frame rate problems and performance issues on Windows 10, along with wheel controllers and other, more general improvements.

Among other things, on Windows 10 the new Forza Horizon 3 PC patch will be improving stability and performance on the Windows 10, disabling mouse move detection while driving, and additional options for steering wheel sensitivity, inverting force feedback, and more.

When it comes to wheel controllers, the patch also fixes Logitech G27 so that you can correctly use your controller’s default mapping, along with being able to use the horn for your car on a controller with enough buttons, and improving dead zones on steering and acceleration.

Forza Horizon 3 has only been out for around a week, but Playground Games releasing a Forza Horizon 3 PC patch so soon after its release date to fix such a large number of bugs speaks well of Playground and their dedication to making Forza Horizon 3 a good game that a lot of people can enjoy.

The Forza games are one of the premiere driving game series for consoles and PC, alongside the Gran Turismo series. That, adding to the fact that the game already has at least one content pack coming out for it, shows that hopefully Forza Horizon 3 will be the premiere Forza game for several years to come, at least until the next Forza game comes out.
