Forza Horizon 3 PC Update: January Patch Corrupts Save Files

By on

Patches should be improving the performance of any title on any platform. But, that is certainly not the case with the recent?Forza Horizon 3 PC update as reports claim that it would corrupt player?s saved files. On a good note, you do not have to worry anymore as we have already found out what you should do.

Several hours after the release of the patch, a bunch of players started complaining about the issues they were experiencing. One of those problems is losing their saved files. Developers, on the other hand, were quick to acknowledge the issue and immediately released an official statement.

As posted on the official?forum?of the game, the developers are aware of the issue. As they have finished their investigation, the team recommends every PC player to cancel their current downloads of the patch. It is for the reason that they would have to re-download the game once the fix is done.

An updated post on the same page mentions that the incorrect Forza Horizon 3 PC update has already been removed and replaced. Take note that if your patch version ends with a ?.37.2?, you should quickly uninstall it. The correct playable version should end in ?.35.2?.

For those who have already downloaded the wrong file, you should not start a new game save on that version as doing so?will corrupt your save file. So, as long as you have an existing save and have not created a new one on the wrong patch, your files will perfectly work on the correct update.

Apparently, this is not the first time PC gamers experienced major problems with the game. Back in October, developers also launched a PC update that should have fixed multiple issues. However, according to a previous report, it caused stuttering and frame-rate drops that spoiled the game.

Also, since the title hit the stores in September, the PC version was marred by performance issues even after it got several patches. As a result, some gamers started doubting whether or not the developers could actually fix these issues. And as it turns out, the Forza Horizon 3 PC update causes another issue for players. Hopefully, developers would soon fix these problems. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.


Apparently, the developer build is the “save corrupting patch” that was mistakenly released. Players have now data mined this and unearthed plenty of unannounced cars.
