Watch the Forza Horizon 4 Autumn Seasons Change Everything Stream


Ralph Fulton and the team at Playground Games have uploaded an hour-long stream showcasing the Forza Horizon 4 Autumn season, demonstrating things like Forzathon, muddy races, as well as a detailed look at the Forza Horizon 4 map of Great Britain.

Last week, Playground Games covered the Summer season which you can check out here. The weekly instalments have two streams left, with Winter and Spring yet to come. Winter looks to be the most exciting as it will unlock areas of the map to explore such as the two massive lakes.

Newly announced is that there will be Forzathon events every hour, day and week meaning there will always be an opportunity to jump in to a community event, making friends and earning rewards like never before. The stream shows a fairly simple Forzathon event where players work together to achieve three goals within 15 minutes. There’s no individual scoring or leaderboards, and instead the score is just a total of everyone that is participating, allowing both experienced and amateur Forza fans to play together.

Adding to this, a couple of amazing features in the Forza Horizon 4 “Shared Worlds” environment include the ability to change your car on the fly at no extra cost (the feature was in Forza Horizon 3 but cost credits) as well as a rewind feature. That’s right, even when you’re online competing with friends and foes, you are still able to rewind your own car to an earlier time, seemingly traveling through time while the other racers continue on without you. There is also a new online photo mode allowing you to snap a shot whenever you desire, pausing the world around you and “ghosting” you out of the game temporarily. Other players will see that you’re in photo mode and whether they choose to wait or abandon you is entirely up to them.

The trees look amazing in the Forza Horizon 4 Autumn season, and the mud is just right for some epic off-road racing which you can check out towards the end of the hour-long stream.

With the map finally revealed, it’s interesting to note that we can’t see any winding tarmac sections of the game. This will be disappointing if it proves to be the final map, as fans have been desperately screaming at Playground Games to include such roads for drifting since leaving them out of Forza Horizon 3. The centre of the map is yet to be revealed however, so we can still hold out a little bit of hope, although it is definitely dwindling.

Here’s one Redditor’s (u/tehrmuk) take on the Forza Horizon 4 map, showing the route taken for the E3 2018 press conference race:
