The Smoking Tire Pack has yet to be officially announced, so we don't know precisely when it will become available for purchase. Considering it has appeared on the Japanese Xbox Store already, it probably won't take long to learn more about it.

Last week, we reported how Forza Horizon 3 struggles to run at 1080p/60FPS on most configurations. According to the research done by a few users, this is due to ESR, which uses a lot of CPU to decrypt files while playing

The reason of those stutters is the fact that the game uses EFS which consumes a lot of CPU.
Yesterday, i’ve captured a usage on my CPU and GPU, and found interesting thing, when CPU has 100% a lot of stuttering appears and GPU usage lower fluctuates at 50-80%. Stutters mostly appears in a city and mostly at the fast speed, when the game loads a lot of assets simultaneously. The i’ve navigated to a folder where game is installed and found that game folder uses EFS, which AFAIK uses AES256 encryption. Having EFS is ok for sensible documents, not the game files, because it requires a lot of CPU to decrypt.

Forza Horizon 3 is now available on PC and Xbox One in all regions.
