A Microsoft Store description for Forza Horizon 2 mentioning locations other than France and Italy was incorrect. The game takes place in France and Italy.

These are the types of services that are experiencing problems, yes.

Also, lots of people are asking about not receiving your various rewards yet. This includes loyalty cars, Forza Rewards credits, etc. I want to reiterate: We are definitely aware of these issues and these rewards are being sent out. In fact, many Forza Horizon 2 players have already received their rewards. With regard to Forza Rewards in particular, if you have redeemed your Rewards here on the Forza Web site or via Forza Hub you will be receiving your rewards. The server issues we are experiencing means they are going out more slowly than we'd like but they are going out.

As always, thanks for your patience.

If you find yourself waiting longer and unable to get your loyalty rewards or redeemed Forza Rewards, please let us know in this thread so we can follow up.

2) We are still not 100% caught up on Demo Car award fulfillment. (If you're not sure what that is, see this story on FM.net). These award cars were de-prioritized, as we wanted to get loyalty cars and Forza Rewards out first, and they are still being sent out through the weekend.

Thanks,

With the launch weekend of Forza Horizon 2 behind us, I wanted to keep you all in the loop on where we are with other game issues players are reporting to us. Some of these problems include various game freezes (such as when accessing leaderboards, or when entering the first Road Trip at Nice Massena), an issue where some players cannot load into Forza Horizon 2 from the main loading screen, controller disconnect problems with the game, as well as an issue we are seeing where strange characters sometimes appear on screen when players try to access leaderboards. We are aware of all of these issues and are busy working on solutions for them. I hope to be able to update you soon with more information.

In addition, a number of you have reported issues with still not receiving your Forza Rewards. We are investigating these instances on an individual basis and, once I have something more to report, I will do so in this thread.

Also, some Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass owners are not seeing the Mobil 1 Car Pack as “free”. This is due to a configuration error and Turn 10 is working with Xbox to correct this, which should happen soon. If you are a Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass owner, please do not try to re-purchase the Mobil 1 Car Pack. Once the configuration issues are solved, the Mobil 1 Car Pack will show up as “free” for Car Pass owners, as intended.

When you launch Forza Horizon 2, you'll be prompted to update the game. If you have purchased the pack or the Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass, you'll find the cars from that pack available at the Autoshow. The cars in the Mobil 1 Car Pack should be purchasable for 0 credits in the Autoshow for those who own the pack or the Car Pass. As with Forza 5, this only counts for the first time you purchase that particular car.

Thanks and enjoy the pack!

Uninstall the game – DO NOT DELETE YOUR SAVE
Re-install the game, if using a disc ensure you are online when installing so that updates can be applied during the install.
Wait for the game and updates to be fully installed before launching the game.

Issues update - October 17 - content update pending
Quote:
We’re a few weeks away from the launch of Forza Horizon 2 but the teams here at Turn 10 and at Playground Games are continuing to investigate issues that have been brought to our attention via the Forza community. Many of these issues will be corrected with our next content update, which I hope to have more details about soon. Once the details of the CU are in place, I will be sure to let the Forza community know.

One specific issue that we know about: Players are running into an issue where the Skyline R32 has no engine sound. Some players have resorted to trying to re-install Forza Horizon 2 in order to correct this issue. To be clear: We are aware of this problem with the R32 and are investigating the solution. There is no need to re-install the game to try and fix this problem.

As always, thanks for your patience and look for more details on the next CU for Forza Horizon 2 soon.
