Bug fixes


  • Fixed an issue with the Daily Wheelspins attached to owning the Hotel Castillo Player House which would sometimes unlock inconsistently
  • Fixed an issue with cars thumbnails being generated with black headlights and windows
    • Developer's Notes: Since thumbnails are generated locally, players with those corrupted thumbnails would need to edit their car (any modification would suffice, like changing paint, or livery or tuning). This process would force the system to re-generate the thumbnail which will be shown correctly afterwards.
  • Fixed an issue with the incorrect target number of photos in the Horizon Promo, specifically for Mercedes-AMG
  • Fixed an issue with Accolades where some players were able to accumulate more accolades points than intended while being offline
  • Fixed a crash on PC which was occurring when the display was not connected to the primary graphics adapter
  • Client Security updates
  • General performance and stability fixes


  • Fixed an issue where cars were unable to rev past 3000 RPM when shifting from first to reverse gear and vice-versa
  • Fixed an issue with the 1976 Jeep CJ5 Renegade where wheels on the thumbnail were flipped around
  • Fixed an issue with inconsistent paint/vinyl options on the 2020 #20 MG6 Xpower stock wing
  • Fixed an issue with the 1958 Plymouth Fury rear view mirror which was compressing cars making them appear taller and thinner
  • Fixed an issue with the 1997 BMW M3 where corrupted textures were showing when the car was damaged


  • Fixed an issue with "Open Empire" Accolade which didn't have a tracker in the Accolade menu
  • Fixed an issue with "Baja Bug" Accolade which was not getting completed upon meeting its requirements


  • Corrected the UI indicator for the over-budget props when editing a blueprint


  • Fixed an issue in Convoys where sometimes players couldn't use any d-pad menus after a disconnection
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes players were not able to access most game features if accessing The Eliminator via Hot Wheels Menu tab
  • Fixed an issue in "Las Afueras" Street Race upon resetting the car after missing a specific checkpoint
  • Improvements made to reduce client crashes when being challenged into a Head-to-Head in The Eliminator or in Free Roam
