Microsoft Studios' open-world racing video game "Forza Horizon 3" is in full swing as it promises improvement in performance and stability.

According to Forza Motor Sport, performance and stability are going to be the core highlight of the game's development. In terms of stability, the developers have fixed an issue where having a microphone enabled in the racing game even if no speech pack is installed would lead to crashing in Windows 10.

The game has also fixed some game crash issues on Windows 10 and Xbox One, when players enter Maroondah Road Bucket List event, online Bucket List Blueprint challenges with mismatched DLC, and when pausing the game. Game crash issues on collecting Loyalty Rewards while in a Convoy and utilizing the AMD R9 Fury X graphics card on Windows 10 have also been fixed. Also, the game updates a TDR fix for Windows 10 players.

In terms of performance, the game developers have improved the Windows 10 CPU, some thread layout modifications for eight-core setups, upgrades and tuning screens, stall when driving in Byron Bay, stall when applying Drivatar liveries, and stall when driving in free roam.

In addition to stability and performance, "Forza Horizon 3" has also unveiled some updates on wheel support. The patch notes revealed that mapped actions are now identified in the user interface and the wheel button prompts issues have been fixed. Also, improvements were done to force feedback dead zone and FFB performance when driving on tarmac.

As per VG247, "Forza Horizon 3" is one of Microsoft's initial largest Play Anywhere titles; thus, it has to show its commitment to ascertain that the game flows smoothly to keep its players satisfied and have a more dynamic and engaging virtual racing experience.

Developed by Playground Games, "Forza Horizon 3" was initially released on Sept. 27.
