LIVESTREAMS & VIDEOS

Mike Brown hosted the January 13th livestream from Playground Games, starting with the Festival Playlist seasonal rewards and Showcase Remix featuring Isha's Taxis. Since The Eliminator was added in Series 17, one prolific player has won 353 games and more people have played The Eliminator "than any [FH4] multiplayer mode ever." Players will see different Level cars in Series 18. The Elimi-Q&A-tor segment profiled PG Associate Producer Gareth Davies and his Top 100 video games list. Matt Pickering showed off the four new cars coming this series: the Hummer Open Top, the community's most-requested car (Lamborghini Huracan Performante), the Toyota Trueno, and a special Porsche 356C from Emory Motorsports. Mike listed fixes in the content update including faster loading times, and Chris Phillips answered "Hey Tom" questions from livestream chat.

SHOWCASE REMIX - MOTOCROSS PURPOSES
Buggies and bikes return, with dirt, jumps and ramps aplenty in this Showcase Remix.
