A Major Forza Horizon 5 Patch Is Out Now

Forza Horizon 5‘s latest patch is a major one, adding story mode co-op, a new event, and new Hot Wheels cars and cosmetics ahead of the July expansion’s release. The patch also fixes a number of high-profile bugs, adds convertible functionality to some of FH5’s cars, and adds support for a handful of new languages in both subtitles and voice over.

The patch brings good news for those who like to play in a group, with the update finally fixing a bug that affected 12-player convoys, as well as adding support for up to six players to enjoy Horizon Stories in co-op. A new Forza EV Monthly Rivals event has also been added to the game.

FH5 has also started adding Hot Wheels-themed content to the game, ahead of the full Hot Wheels expansion dropping on July 19. While the custom tracks aren’t available yet, new cosmetics and cars themed around the iconic toy brand have been added to the game.

With the amount of content that is being added or tweaked, users have reported that the patch is a hefty one, with a reported file size around 16GB on the Xbox Series X and 12GB on the Xbox One. Check out the full patch notes below for everything that’s being added or fixed in this patch.
