Forza Horizon 3 has received its first major update, addressing many issues that players have had with the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10. Most of the fixes are for Windows 10, as that version of the game has had many more problems than the Xbox One version.

The biggest improvement is the increase in performance on Windows 10, which fixes the stuttering that many players were experiencing. Players on both versions who were having issues receiving their Halo Warthog pre-order bonus should now be able to claim it with no problems.

The update comes alongside The Smoking Tire Car Pack, which is a DLC pack that adds several new cars to the game.

If you haven’t checked out Forza Horizon 3 yet, there is a free demo available for both Windows 10 and Xbox One.
