Forza Horizon 5 sped off from the grid with very positive reviews, with ours reckoning it's the best the series has ever been. One cloud in the Mexican skies, however, is that the game launched on PC and immediately ran into issues with steering wheel support—players trying to use their peripherals were cursed to endless 'wheel disconnected' warnings while trying to enjoy a drive.

Playground Games confirmed it's working on a hotfix that was expected last week, but after running into further issues the developer has delayed it until sometime this week.

Meantime, if you have this issue and don't want to wait around for Playground to fix it, there is a workaround that our own Jacob Ridley has tested and explains here. Apparently it "works wonderfully" and only takes about ten minutes to get up-and-running: petrol-heads always enjoy a bit of fiddling under the bonnet anyway.

We'll let you know when the hotfix goes live. Elsewhere in Forza Horizon 5, the big news is that players are buying up one crappy jeep by the hundreds to farm money.
