Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels update live, patch notes released

Finally, Forza Horizon 5 Hot Wheels DLC has appeared along with a proper update complete with patch notes. At the time of writing, the Hot Wheels DLC that was revealed last month is rolling out across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Game Pass. Of course, this is the most notable aspect of the update, but it’s not all that the update does. According to developer Playground Games, there are more than 10 “major fixes for the game”. Their words, not ours.

While we have the patch notes for the update, what we don’t have are the file sizes for it across the different platforms and listed above. If this changes, we will update the story, in the meantime, expect a larger download as this update, unlike most, adds substantial new content.
