Forza Week in Review 11-8-19
Brian Ekberg

https://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/wir_11_8_19


WINTER SEASON CONTENT
Quote:
Bust out the leather & wool RAF flight jackets, Forza Horizon 4 players, because winter has arrived in Britain! The winter season is bringing more than just snowy roads and the occasional stretch of black ice; there are new events and new cars to collect as well. One of the highlight offers this week is the 2010 BMW M3 GTS, a powerful luxury car that’s making its return to the Forza Horizon series (it was last seen in the original Forza Horizon). Want to own this classic BMW for yourself? Beat the “Power Struggle” Season event against Highly Skilled Drivatars to do so!

It’s not just the BMW up for grabs – winter is also bringing a chance to win the Peugeot 205 Forza Edition, the Mini John Cooper Works Buggy, and the 2004 Subaru WRX. Finally, the Season Completion cars for winter are the TVR Tuscan (50 percent season completion) and the Koenigsegg CCX (80 percent season competition), alongside the Series competition reward cars the 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish (50 percent competition) and the Porsche 718 GTS (80 percent completion). Good luck and happy (snow)sliding!


DIRTFISH RALLY ON WHEEL AND PEDAL WEDNESDAY
Quote:
We are very lucky in the Seattle area to have the DirtFish rally school so accessible. This week, on a slightly delayed (Thursday) edition of Wheel and Pedal Wednesday, Johniwanna spoke with DirtFish Senior Instructor Michelle Miller and got a good look at one of the DirtFish RWD instructor cars, the Subaru BRZ.

Miller is a three-time SCCA Autocross champion and has driven and co-driven on the American rally circuit. During the show, she spoke of her own unique cars: a Porsche Cayenne Transyberia and a forgotten hot hatch, the Mitsubishi Mirage. She also gave insight into the intricacies of co-driving ,as well as her own successes behind the wheel. Her love of driving inspires others and she loves every day on the job.

If you missed it live, check out the replay on Mixer to see more of Michelle’s story.


NOVEMBER SCHEDULE
Quote:
Thanks for reading another edition of the Forza Week in Review. We’ll be back on November 22nd with a wrap-up of the November edition of “Forza Monthly” as well as a preview of the ForzaRC Finals action. See you then!

SERIES 16 ANNOUNCEMENTS



Series 16 cars and content were covered in the livestreams from Playground Games and Forza Monthly:
Twitch | Mixer | YouTube - Playground Games livestream
Twitch | Mixer - Forza Monthly livestream with Jon Knoles

The Series 16 livestream also introduced "Tommy Bargains Stupidly Priced Cars" - the Forzathon Shop will feature deals on cars every few hours on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving).^ The specific cars have not been announced yet but there will be 16 in all, including Pre-Order cars.








Forza Horizon 4 | Series 16 Update
Staff
Tuesday, November 19, 2019
https://forzamotorsport.net/news/fh4_series_16

Quote:
The Series 16 update for Forza Horizon 4 arrives on November 20th and stars the latest supercar from Ferrari. The 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista is Ferrari’s latest low-production, high-performance masterpiece in the real world and it’s coming to the world of Horizon 4 with the latest update. In addition, Playground Games is introducing a new Showcase Remix, Auction House Improvements, and more.


NEW CARS
  • 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista
  • 1970 Ferrari 512 S
  • 2018 ATS GT
  • 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR


SUBTITLE IMPROVEMENTS
  • "To improve the experience for our players who use subtitles, the following changes have been made to the subtitling system:
  • Subtitle Location – We have now moved our subtitles to the bottom center of the screen, away from their original location on the left-hand side.
  • Subtitle Font Size – Players can now adjust the font size of all subtitles from within the Video Settings menu
  • Subtitle Background Opacity – Players can now adjust the transparency of the subtitle background from within the Video Settings menu
  • Subtitle Option Preview – Players can now see an example of their subtitle settings by pressing the Options button from within the Video Settings menu"


NEW SHOWCASE REMIX - MORNING RUSH
"Crowded, noisy stations. Cold winds and bad coffee. Grumpy commuters packed into a standing-room-only metal tube for HOURS on end. With all of this, why would you take the train anywhere? Instead, give Isha’s Taxis a call. We’ll come right to your door, and we’ll get you where you need to go faster than any train. Don’t believe us? We’ll prove it!"

SHOWCASE REMIX REDUX - MOTORCROSS PURPOSES
"The age-old question: dirtbike or buggy? OK, maybe that’s not quite an age-old question, but it’s still a fun one to answer. Show those two-wheelers how to do things the Horizon way in this returning Showcase Remix."

AUCTION HOUSE IMPROVEMENTS
"Added the ability to quickly select Manufacturers in the Auction House Search interface."

RESTRICTED CARS IN MULTIPLAYER
"With this update, some cars will no longer be permitted in competitive multiplayer modes like Rivals and Online Adventure. These restrictions are being applied to ensure that all multiplayer modes have a wide selection of competitive vehicles. For now, only two vehicles will be affected by this change: the 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker and the 2018 Top Gear Track-Tor."

RELEASE NOTES
"For more on the fixes coming to the Series 16, update, please see the Series 16 Release Notes on the Forza Support site."

The Toyota Brand Returns to Forza


https://twitter.com/ForzaMotorsport/status/1196868827646222337

Teased by Mike Brown at the end of the Series 16 livestream and discussed at the beginning of November's Forza Monthly livestream, Toyota - which has been largely absent from the most recent Forza games - is returning to the franchise.

Brian Ekberg announced:
"We're here to officially confirm that Toyota is coming back to the Forza franchise. Here's what you need to know. Moving ahead, you can expect cars from Toyota, from Lexus, maybe even Scion to be in Forza for years to come. It's not going to happen today; the next time you can expect this is on December 12th in Forza Horizon 4, the Series 17 update, you guys will be able to play the 1998 Toyota Supra RZ. "

Jon Knoles was also on hand to confirm the work required to bring the cars into the environment of Forza Horizon 4.

Further details are TBA.

Quote:
Toyota is returning to Forza and we’re getting set for the final weekend of racing in the Forza Racing Championship 2019 Invitational Series. Today in the Forza Week in Review, we’re setting up all the action that will be coming your way this weekend, as well as taking look back at some huge Forza news from the beginning of the week. Let’s dive in!


TOYOTA RETURNS
  • "As teased on Tuesday’s Forza Horizon 4 Series 16 stream from Playground Games on and confirmed on this week’s edition of “Forza Monthly”, Toyota is returning to Forza! Starting on December 12th, Forza Horizon 4 players will get behind the wheel of the 1998 Toyota Supra RZ as part of the Series 17 update. Expect more Toyota and Lexus models to roll out in future Forza Horizon 4 updates as Forza players can expect to see Toyota and Lexus in our games for years to come."


SERIES 16 CONTENT
  • "Series 16 is here, Forza Horizon 4 players and, as part of the latest update, you can experience four amazing new cars, including a pair of tifosi­-pleasing Ferraris in the in the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista and the Ferrari 512. This update also brings with it new features such as improved handling of subtitles in the game, as well as a new Showcase Remix called “Morning Rush” and some changes to multiplayer that the community has been asking for. Namely, we’ve removed a couple of cars (the Hot Wheels Boneshaker and the Track Tor) from competitive online events such as Rivals and Online Adventures."


#FORZAMONTHLY - NOVEMBER
  • "We had a load of fun on this week’s November edition of “Forza Monthly.” Turn 10’s Jon Knoles joined us on to take a run through the Series 16 update for Forza Horizon 4 and to talk about the news of Toyota’s return to the Forza franchise. Elsewhere, two of ForzaRC’s most famous faces – that would be Mellish and Alie Tacq – joined the couch to talk about this weekend’s finals and answered questions from ForzaRC viewers along the way. Mellish and Yours Truly also launched into a Forza Horizon 4 race competition, featuring a Blueprint route created by Alie."

LIVESTREAMS & VIDEOS




Update 18 Livestream - Mixer | Twitch | YouTube
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.

  • Any new Peugeots? "Yes, in the next few series"
  • Are there plans for an offline Eliminator mode? "No"
  • Will Anything Goes come back to online racing? "Maybe but probably not"
  • Will former Horizon game characters return? "No plans right now, if yes, a long while off"
  • Showcase remix with a choice of car? "Something to think about, not currently planned"
  • Single-round record for Head-to-Head wins in The Eliminator? "13"
  • When will Torben be on The Elimi-Q&A-tor? Following Tommy Bargains in the next livestream


Forza Monthly Livestream - Mixer | Twitch | YouTube
Kate Yeager hosted the January edition of Turn 10's livestream during a snowstorm in Seattle.

FEATURES

Quote:
THE ELIMINATOR ROUND 2 - THE HORIZON HEAVYWEIGHTS
They’re big, they’re powerful, they’re the Horizon Heavyweights, joining the Eliminator for Round 2. We’ve added 9 new cars to The Eliminator, with one in each Level, from 2 to 10. The new cars will appear alongside other Car Drops in the world, so get to them before anyone else does. Remember, only the finish line matters!


HORIZON HEAVYWEIGHT CAR LIST:
Top Gear Track-Tor
Mercedes Benz Unimog
MINI X-Raid
HUMMER Open Top
Quartz Regalia D
M12S Warthog CST
Jeep Wrangler DD
Funco F9
Isha's Offroad Taxi


SHOWCASE REMIX - TAXI FOR TAKEOFF
Isha’s Taxis takes on the Delta-Wing in this Series’ Showcase Remix. What happens when you put a jet up against a black cab with a Racing V12, and a terrifying power-weight ratio? We’re not entirely certain, but it’s sure to be spectacular!


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



CONTENT UPDATE FIXES / RELEASE NOTES

The date for the update necessary to add Series 18 content to the game has not been announced, and until it's available we don't know the install size. A typical release is in the 10am Pacific hour on the Tuesday before the Summer season starts, but this may vary; watch for reports from other players.
