Forza Horizon 4’s latest Steam update spoiled an already low-quality port
The racing game Forza Horizon 4 originally went on sale on Xbox One and PC (Microsoft Store) in 2018 but only recently appeared on Steam. Numerous users of the latest platform were faced with technical flaws in the project on release. With the latest update, which was released yesterday, the situation has worsened even more.
The Steam version of a three-year-old game has numerous problems. At launch, users faced technical issues, including crashes, performance degradation, and constant stuttering. With the release of the update on April 14, the situation has worsened for many. The patch notes were surprisingly short: ” Various stability improvements .”
Hundreds of Steam users complained that stutters and crashes remained, and in many cases even got worse – now they occur outside of scenes and transitions between races, as well as during the gameplay itself, which not everyone has experienced before.
Forza Horizon 4 currently has 24% negative reviews on Steam. Thousands of users cite technical problems as the main reason they give the game a negative rating.
Interestingly, the Microsoft Store version of the project does not suffer from any of these problems and is optimized several times better. According to Windows Central, on a PC with AMD FX-8320, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, and 8 GB of RAM, you will not see even milliseconds brakes while in the Steam version, even an assembly with AMD Ryzen 7 3700X will not save them. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and 16 GB of RAM.
