As requested, I’m going to update this post with everything social & community related for Forza Horizon 4. I also would like to point out that there is a lot of things coming up within the next few months which I will add to here so whilst it may look bare, it will soon fill up.

If you have any further suggestions, ideas, feedback or comments on how Playground Games can improve the communication/transparency between Dev and the players or relating to this post – Please discuss here.

Here are the current social medias & information sources:
(For anything relating to Motorsport, check out the Motorsport Forums)

Discord - BRAND NEW. Discuss everything Forza
Forums - Week in Review, Blog, Discussions
Twitter - Short Summary, In-Game Assets/Visuals
Instagram - Short Summary, In-Game Assets/Visuals
Mixer - Mixer Streams & VODs of the streams
Twitch - Twitch Streams
Youtube - YouTube streams, Trailers

Following this thread and feedback this is what I’ll be working towards to hopefully improve our social aspect.

Current Issues:
Issue: Finding an Ideal Transcript for the stream.
Fix: Move forward with alternatives such as Stream Summary/Update videos

Looking Into/Moving forward:
- Stream Summary
- Dev and/or Stream Update videos
- Polls

Backlog for future discussion:
- Q & A (I would put this in the above section, but further discussion is needed to 'how' we are going to do a Q&A appropriately)
- Roadmap (similar reason to Q & A)
- Lists of the top information = "Top 5"
- Forum Status (as it's not under my control)
- Support page (as it's not under my control but I'll keep asking for this to be communicated better)
- Whiteboard / Digital visual board

Forza Horizon 4 – Update 14
To view the VOD click here (Currently still pending)

Reward Cars
  • 2019 McLaren 600LT
  • 2019 McLaren 720 Spider
  • 2018 Volkswagen IDR 94
  • 2018 Ford DerbertiF150

Route Blueprint Improvements
Edit and tweak your Routes better after testing them, and before saving them. After having tested a Route with one or more checkpoint, you will be able to enter Checkpoint Editor mode. In this mode you can:

  • Jump to any checkpoint in your route and edit their width and placement
  • Completely redraw your route from any checkpoint, including changing the endpoint
  • Convert a circuit race to a point-to-point, or vice-versa

This update also adds a number of new ways to search for Event Blueprints through the Creative Hub tab in the Pause Menu. You can now search for Event Blueprints that feature specific Car Themes, like Modern Muscle, specific Car Classes, like S2, or even routes that feature a specific Starting Location, like Tarn Hows. You can also filter by Route Length and Circuit type.

You can now add an 9-digit Share Code to all Event Blueprints, view them by pressing the Right Stick while browsing Event Blueprints in the Pause Menu, Event Activations, or Creative Hub. You can use this code to get to a specific Event Blueprint quickly, and easily.

New Achievements
11 new Achievements, worth 250 Gamerscore. Earn these by completing recently added Horizon Stories, and certain activities in Festival Playlist. These new Achievements are retroactively unlocked if you would already have completed them.

New Showcase Remix – A Contest of Giants
Relive those 80s synth vibes by racing a jet-black plane, in a jet-black Lamborghini on a warm summer’s night! Be sure to complete the regular version of The Delta-Wing Showcase first to unlock the remix, and make progress towards your Showman Star Card.

Updates & Fixes
Cross-Platform Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the distance travelled stat was not updating correctly
  • Fixed an issue where Showcases won stat was not updating correctly in Star Card. You will need to go and re-race the showcase events to get the stat to increase correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck on the Festival Playlist screen when first reaching the Horizon Roster
  • Fixed an issue where the Player Houses stat would not update correctly.
  • Fixed a livery issue on the Austin Taxi which would cause some decals to invert or disappear
  • Various stability and performance improvements.

    PC Fixes
  • Fixed a memory leak that could occur in replay mode, post-race.

Dev Diary (Title to be confirmed)

(You can watch all our streams via our YouTube channel here).

Under the community request we have decided to start a monthly ‘Developer Update’ video which will give you a very quick 2-3 minutes update about Forza Horizon 4. These can be a summary of a stream and/or information of recent changes to the game which we would like to tell you all about.

These are still a work in progress, and we’re looking to make these more frequent alongside giving more updates rather than stream summaries, so all feedback would be greatly appreciated! (But please post it here).

History of videos: *Links may be pending*
  • 8th March 2019 - Update 6 (Seasonal Playground Games, Seasonal Street Races, Ken Block cosmetics, Car Pass Cars, Skill Stream, QOL Improvements & Community Championships)

**UPDATE** - This is currently being delayed and reworked. But we are hoping to present this in the future.
