News, livestreams, and Calendar for FH4

News, livestreams, and Calendar for Forza Horizon 4

As in the previous game forums I’ll be updating this thread as a resource to track official news and deadlines related to the game. Typical updates will include:

  • Official channel articles (announcements, Week in Review), trailers, vidocs
  • Official alerts on Twitter (support and other)
  • Official livestreams
  • Xbox tech announcements that impact FH4
  • Press articles and interviews
  • Expos where FH4 may have a presence
  • Calendar of upcoming contest deadlines, livestreams, DLC dates etc (UNOFFICIAL)

I may keep this thread locked to keep it focused on info, and link to other threads for discussion. I encourage everyone to provide as much direct/original source info when they post news or links so that the community can judge the info first hand.

Forza Horizon 4 news from E3

With some previous Forza games, the game or cover car was teased or revealed prior to E3. No such official info was provided before the announcement of Forza Horizon 4 during Microsoft’s Xbox Briefing on Sunday, June 10th. Ralph Fulton and demo drivers presented gameplay about a half hour into the briefing, announcing the game’s major feature “Seasons change everything” in the shared world of Britain. Prior to E3 there had been a strong current of internet speculation that the next Forza location would be set in Japan, but Fulton stated in interviews that Japan wasn’t at the top of the list. During the Xbox briefing, Phil Spencer also announced that Microsoft Studios had invested in the acquisition of Playground Games (developers of the Horizon series) and other development studios. There was no car on stage for the briefing, but FH4’s hero car - the McLaren Senna - made its North American debut at the FH4 E3 booth two days later. During the week, E3 attendees were able to play the E3 floor demo on a hydraulic motion sled. Press were given Behind Closed Door looks gameplay beyond the B-roll, but were not allowed to record it (except for IGN, which continued its IGN First partnership for exclusive content.)

The community spotted around 90 cars from demo and media assets. Official announcements included release dates, pre-order bundle details, and DLC basics, and developers provided more information in interviews providing an overview of the game’s features: In previous Horizon games you were a newcomer, champion, and manager of the summer Festival. In FH4 you’re a resident of the year-round festival set in Britain (including Wales and Scotland). Part of this ongoing #HorizonLife experience is buying properties (which are used as Fast Travel and Forzavista/Upgrade points) from cottages to castles, taking on Jobs (such as a stunt driver for a tv show), and customizing your driver with clothing and emotes. You’ll be able to earn Influence toward becoming a #HorizonSuperstar through racing (including Drag and Drift) but also through photography, Mixer streaming, painting, and other activities. Being there year round means you’ll experience the four Seasons and changing environment which affect driving; frozen winter lakes and summer dry river beds open new driving locations, and muddy and icy terrain affect grip. Seasons cycle weekly for all FH4 players, though you can set your own time of day, season, and weather in Blueprint events, which includes a new Route Creator for P2P and circuit races. Though you have the option to play through the game in offline mode with Drivatar opponents, most will play through the game online on servers of 72 live players. Other player cars will be ghosted to prevent griefing collisions until you Co-op and Convoy with up to 6 players with the assistance of Quick Chat. Team Adventure provides 6 v. 6 ranked League competitions in playground game modes for Tag and Flag Rush. Showcase events put you up against special vehicle opponents such as motorcycles, hovercraft, and aircraft. Forzathon has been enhanced to become Forzathon Live, with hourly challenges and increased rewards when done with multiple players. Danger Sign jumps, Drift zones, Barn Finds, Auction House, and Storefront return. Other than the mention of new drift suspension, questions about car customization, a demo, and music channels were met with “stay tuned.”

#ForzaMonthly livestream - July 2

VOD: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sI0sTDOJtc

In this episode of Forza’s special monthly livestream, Jon Knoles joined Brian Ekberg, John Schommer, and Chris Esaki to recap FH4 at E3 and provide new details about the game:

  • Edinburgh is the large city on the map. The city and other map details will be revealed later.
  • Britain has a variety of terrain, including mountains and more driftable roads.
  • The weekly seasonal change “will happen quickly” in game.
  • Every car will come with the dashboard camera view seen in the E3 demo.
  • Bunnies and sheep can’t be touched.
  • Stacked stone walls can be smashed, while the few masonry walls are solid. The difference between smashable and solid trees will be visibly obvious.
  • Double the number of tire compounds and new suspension geometry not in FH3, and rebalanced PI on the low end, provide more sense of contact with the road and difference between off-road and road vehicles.
  • New Drift suspension option “for most cars in the game” goes lower, gives faster lock-to-lock, and up to 50 degrees of steering angle.
  • Drag tire compound added to Horizon for the first time. Muscle cars may get drag-style suspension after launch. Big drag strip at the Festival.
  • Major recalculation to Force Feedback on wheels for better realism.
  • Body kits are continuing to be added to more cars.
  • Buying houses with CR unlock Perks (TBA), and serve all the functions of a Festival site: fast travel, Forzavista, paint, and upgrades.
  • Forzavista is now in your driveway to allow painting in natural light.
  • 2 cars from the Formula Drift Car Pack revealed. More news on the car list later in the summer.
  • No announcement on a Demo date yet.

Knoles provided additional information on Twitter:

  • Car window stickers are not a feature in FH4.^
  • Drift suspension stances cars but doesn’t automatically change wheel offset “unless you equip an upgrade preset that has it. However, there will be a new wheel upgrade option called Track Width that offers several offsets you can select for front offset, rear, or both depending on car. A lot of cars - especially older cars with a narrow track that have more room to move wheels out than some modern cars with a nearly flush stance already. Example: '73 Escort RS, yes. '17 Ford Focus RS - no. We’ll reveal more about this cool new feature soon.”^
  • “Completing #Forzathon challenges in FH4 will earn you Forzathon Points to spend on rotating rewards in the new Forzathon Shop: Cars, vanity items, emotes, horns, etc.”^

There’s no advance notice about the first reveal, so be sure to watch the Tuesday stream for any car reveal info, and especially news channels through Wednesday.

Last year Xbox Wire published their overview a day before the event start, so look for that from Monday-Wednesday this week as well.

We’re now just two weeks from the launch of Forza Horizon 4. Reminder: you can get a head start earning Influence from watching livestreams of the FH4 demo on Mixer, and earn Forza Rewards points for more Loyalty Rewards at launch. This coming weekend’s calendar includes the annual EGX expo in the UK. There haven’t been any EGX Horizon-specific schedule announcements yet, but the official EGX app is available to download and will have updated “lists and locations of every game” this week along with a developer sessions schedule. Ralph Fulton has previously made presentations at EGX in Horizon launch years. The Tokyo Game Show is also open this coming weekend.

Between now and launch is typically the time when an official list of supported peripherals is announced, and a launch trailer is released, so keep an eye out for potential news up through Friday’s Week in Review.
