PC Version of Forza Horizon 3 Receives First Patch

New update addresses stuttering and other issues

The Windows 10 version of Forza Horizon 3 has received its first update to address technical issues and flaws.

Despite being very well received, some players had reported some issues with the build on PC, notably one that affected the game, causing a stuttering effect when the framerate was unlocked. Reporting on the update, Dark Side of Gaming has detailed that the patch, which is available now, will improve overall stability of the game whilst adding various options to the Windows 10 advanced controller menu.
