Forza Horizon 4 Official - Does the UK really have 4 seasons?

Recommended Posts

Vandalsquad    515

Seeing as I've made the official Forza threads for the last few years I've been more than slack on this one with real life getting a hold of me but it's time to get around to it.

 

Official Trailer

 

 

Official Information 

Quote

Forza Horizon 4 is our latest title in the award-winning Forza Horizon series launching worldwide on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Game Pass on October 2, 2018 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.

This highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s breakout hit Forza Horizon 3 brings players dynamic seasons in a shared open-world that change every week. Experience beautiful, historic Britain in spectacular native 4K and HDR, collect over 450 cars, and become a Horizon Superstar.

Seasons Change Everything

Forza Horizon 4 features dynamic seasons that change gameplay, unlocking new events and routes, impacting driving conditions, and transforming open-world exploration – all in native 4K and HDR. Players will be able to master driving in dry, wet, muddy, snowy and icy conditions in a shared world where everyone experiences changes in time of day, weather and seasons together.

Open-World Freedom

Forza Horizon 4 allows players to choose their path to becoming a Horizon Superstar. We’re proud to introduce two of our most fan-requested features – a brand new Route Creator that lets you design and share your own custom race routes anywhere in the open world and the option to play at 60 frames per second for players on Xbox One X.

Collect Over 450 Cars and Customize Your Horizon Life

With over 450 cars from more than 100 licensed manufacturers, Forza Horizon 4 features the largest and most diverse Horizon car roster yet with all the customization options Forza players love, like new Drift Suspension upgrades and driver personalization with character clothing, accessories and emotes. And for the first time in the Horizon series, players can own property that unlocks new items and gameplay perks.

Go it Alone or Team Up

Players can choose to play alone, cooperatively or join multiplayer for casual fun or ranked teams. In addition, integrated Mixer broadcasting and spectating features add to an already fun and rewarding experience.

Probably in the minority here but I wish they'd implement VR support on PC. Not sure if it is at all feasible but I'd love it all the same. An open world racing title in VR: that's the dream.

The cockpit view is there and I don't think it would be that hard to implement I think the only reason they haven't yet as being a 90% console seller might ###### xbox owners  off when there starts to be feature differences? I think we'll be waiting for Forza 8 launch title for the next xbox for VR to be fully implemented into the engine, and then Horizon a year or two after that sadly for open world VR.

Shaping up to be a nice addition to the series. 

 

Also I clearly live in the wrong part of the UK :P It doesn't look anything like that!

Summer on Mixer with the ream hour of showing - https://mixer.com/ForzaMotorsport?vod=42660051

 

 

I was happy to say FH3 would be the best racer of the generation before, even before it launched and was proven right when it dropped. I didn't think it could be out done, a racer beating an Australian home based game? But this is shaping up to maybe prove me wrong. Looks stunning. And I really want a playground games mug.

You can run FH4 on a Windows 10 PC (of course that meet min. requirements)

Nice, should get some time this week to give it a try. I let my GamePass expire as I wasn't playing anything from the list but if I enjoy it, this will certainly get me to re-subscribe.

I've only managed to get a small amount of time in, I enjoyed it and I'll definitely be coming back to it. The game looks beautiful and the handling of cars feels brilliant, but then it is a Forza game so I didn't expect anything but that. I've never been a huge fan of the FH series and much prefer the FM side of proper track racing so it won't keep my attention for too long.

My favorite XBox title. I swore they changed up how they handle Blueprints in this one but I was proven to be wrong by some nice member at Era (they even included helpful screenshots to prove how wrong I was lol). My only complaint is there is a bit too much going on, if that is even a complaint. Otherwise it is amazing as always. Think I am currently at Level 50 and just waiting for my wife to fall asleep so I can play some more tonight.

With that said, not looking forward to the Winter Season. i was all over the damn place in the prologue even after playing Blizzard Mountain in FH3.

There's always to many races available that's the truth or only reveal a small amount then let me knock most of them off before revealing more again 😆 In the snow my plan will be load up the Range Rover and go for gold since the circuits normally adapt to the car. Loving the stuntman and car delivery, buying of houses and the rewards they've added this time around.

 

Edit -  If anyone can be bothered link your mixer account and load up a FH4 stream and sit it idle in the background good way to farm some super spins or influence while at work.

I do too. I played Project Cars on my VIve and it was amazing. Graphics weren't the greatest, but it was super cool actually BEING in the cockpit.

Did not know that about the Mixer. I never messed with it at all but if I can get some Super Spins out of it, I will give that a go! Thanks!

 

And yeah I just finished the Stuntman Chapters, need to try the Rentals and other one about a blogger or something like that. I am doing a little bit of everything. Definitely not just going all good cars either since the competition will match you. So mixing things up with a little bit of everything so I can keep winning. LOL

 

So far my best purchase was that 2 Million Credit house. Got 10 Super Spins and made back 1.5 Million in credits, got about 10 cars including 2 FE ones, and now can Fast Travel anywhere for 200 credits. Was well worth the purchase on my end and paid for itself.

 

It is a great game. I still love it. I just kind of miss it having an end goal. It is pretty much open ended now so there is a little bit of a feels like it will never end. I know most people love that approach to games these days. I am old school and prefer some kind of end goal. I am still playing it though, and still loving it. Just different is all.

Thanks. I don't get to play often so this will be helpful.

So I signed up for Mixer, what do I need to do exactly? I choose Launch Mixer but nothing happens, just brings me to the app itself. I am assuming I need to broadcast but not seeing how to do that.

Have played through most of Fh4, the multiplayer racing is abysmal though.

 

They've changed it to teams only, you can't see laptimes, no collision free racing. It's basically a destruction derby every race.
