Forza Motorsport's graphics are state-of-the-art thanks to its detailed car models, rebuilt tracks, and ray-tracing reflection technology. This isn’t surprising as Forza Motorsport games always set the benchmark for racing game graphics on Xbox.
Unfortunately, a graphics bug in the launch version is making Forza Motorsport’s visuals appear washed out on Xbox Series X|S. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to fix this while we wait for Turn 10 to release a day-one patch.
This guide will show you how to fix the Forza Motorsport gamma bug and make the visuals shine.
How to fix the Forza Motorsport gamma bug
An unfortunate bug in the visual settings menu is causing Forza Motorsport’s graphics to look washed out. Thankfully there's an easy way to fix it.
To fix the Forza Motorsport gamma bug, go to the Video settings in the pause menu and choose your preferred graphics mode. There are three modes to choose from: Performance, Performance Ray Tracing or Visual.
Once you’ve selected a graphics mode, quit the game from the Xbox Dashboard and remove it from the Quick Resume. Relaunching the game should fix the bug. If it still isn’t resolved, restart your console or PC. This should fix the Forza Motorsport bug, but is a temporary solution.
Turn 10 is aware of the bug and is working on a fix for the next update, but hasn’t confirmed when the patch will arrive at the time of writing.
Forza Motorsport known issues
Forza Motorsport’s gamma bug is relatively minor compared to other known Forza Motorsport issues. Players are reporting a frustrating glitch that causes career progress to be lost when buying or upgrading a car. In worst cases, this bug also corrupts the save file, rendering the game unplayable.
PC players are also experiencing a bug where using the livery editor takes up 99% of resources. These issues will hopefully be fixed in Forza Motorsport’s day one patch update, but we’re still waiting to find out when it will arrive.
