Forza Horizon 5 (FH5) 'Rally Adventure' crashing when loading a tune or during cutscenes for many players

Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

Forza Horizon 5 (also known as ‘FH5’) is a hit driving game exclusive to Windows OS devices and Xbox consoles. A few hours ago, it received the ‘Rally Adventure’ update.

The update in question comes with new content to keep the interest of current players and attract new ones. However, it seems that it also brought up some performance issues.


More specifically, Forza Horizon 5 (FH5) ‘Rally Adventure’ expansion is crashing for many players when loading a tune, during cutscenes, and in other scenarios.

Multiple reports indicate that the latest FH5 ‘Rally Adventure’ update is causing an annoying crashing issue that ruins the experience.

Many of the reports point out that the problem usually occurs when players try to load or equip a tune. A ‘tune’ is a set of tweaks that can modify the appearance and behavior of vehicles during the races.


Old tunes crashing the game?

I noticed that every time I equip an “old” tune (before this recent update) the game crashes. This happens with every car. Is this a known bug? Or just me?

Since the new update I can’t load a different tune on any of my cars without the game crashing. I only use a handful of cars with multiple tunes for each so this has rendered the game completely unplayable.

Forza Horizon 5 is also randomly crashing during cutscenes after the ‘Rally Adventure’ update, which is pretty frustrating.


Game keeps crashing while in cutscene for RAlly dlc?

Trying to go to the new map it gives me a cutscene and during it the game just crashes what do I do?

But, those are not the only cases where the problem can appear. There are also multiple reports of crashes even when trying to access the game or the ‘Rally Adventure’ update content.


Forza Horizon 5 Rally DLC crashing

When I load up Forza it’s fine, but when I try to get into Forza rally after about 5 seconds of the vehicles racing around on the dirt track my Forza just crashes and it only crashes when I try to get into the DLC.

anyone having game crashes on PC with the new update? (Microsoft store)

I updated the game last night and when I boot the game, it signs in, syncs data, launches the game, but it gets stuck on the small gamecard just before the actual game opens and then just crashes.

Sadly, nothing the affected players have tried has helped to resolve the issue. There is also no official word on the situation from the developers yet.

We will be monitoring the situation to update this story as events unfold.
