Ahead of the early access release of Forza Horizon 3, some Xbox Preview players in the current 1610 Preview update have run into an issue that impacts game save data for Forza Horizon 3. The Xbox Preview team will be releasing a new 1610 Preview update on Thursday morning (estimated release: 11:00 a.m. Pacific) to fix this issue.
For Xbox Preview users who have access to Forza Horizon 3 prior to the release of this new 1610 Preview update (specifically players in New Zealand and Australia), please be aware that until your console has downloaded the latest 1610 Preview update, you may lose saved progress in Forza Horizon 3.
This issue occurs when reaching a certain threshold of game save data and is impacted saving career progress, saving screenshots, and importing designs from previous Forza titles. Please be aware that when saving career progress this issue will not indicate an error is present, however, upon restarting the game saved progress may be lost.
If you are NOT in the Preview Program, you will NOT be running the test software. You need NOT do anything different.
If you are in the Preview Program, the fixed software will be issued automatically with an update to the Preview Program participants starting today (September 22) to correct the problem Preview Program participants ONLY have experienced.
I already have the Ultimate Edition downloaded and ready to go. The FAQ says the release is based on the US, not by region. The first post makes it sound like it’s by region. If it is NZ can start playing in less than 10 minutes and Australia 2 hours after that.
Will this post be updated when the Preview update goes live? I happen to be a member and would like to know when I’m risk-free (I still have to wait 14 hours to be able to play it anyway, bought the game in $ instead of € so I have it a bit later than my friends but at a lower cost).
