I started playing Horizon 4 on 17th December 2019.
My main account is rank 123*4 and I have every car in the game, including all the PO cars and 2x Ford Focus PO
I was really bored after completing the game, so I created a new Xbox account and started a brand new Horizon 4 game on 17th December 2020.
After a couple of weeks solid play, I have reached rank 2*2 and am struggling with EXP gain, to the point where it’s taking forever to raise one level… So has EXP gain been heavily nerfed or something?
I drive manual transmission, all assists off, with unbeatable AI, so I get a 105% boost in all races, but it still feels so hard to climb levels
I agree that it doesn’t make much difference once you get through the intro, I think it’s just wheelspins. However, 3 starring the pr stunts and completing the stories and businesses will increase your rank and completing the expansions if you have them. Drifting with a perked car will add to it quickly as well as grinding for skill points. Using the skill points also adds exp.
