Yeah. I guess someone has to REALLY love that mode. I mean, no one else seems to. Still only .35% of players have completed 25 matches and only 7% have actually completed. I gotta be honest, I really don't wanna have to sit through Eliminator matches every stream.

Well, couldn't they make Toyota like Mitsubishi?
Tired of boring and time-consuming Festival Playlists.
Want to force us to play this game?

Because the Mitsubshi models were already developed and ready to ship with the game when Mitsubishi pulled out, there are two games worth of updates they have to do the car models on top of the development pipeline for all the other things they are working on. Last I checked nobody paid or is owed any Toyota cars period.

I've updated the first post with timestamps from Monday's livestreams:

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.

  • 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"

Incredible, I thought 5 was quite a lot. You'd have to be doing race after race in quick succession, and they'd all have to be short. I'm amazed someone has done 13.

    I'm very tempted to tackle that one. I think it would be fairly easy if you get to start the event in a level 10 or something. I knocked out 3 people in about 60 seconds last night. They kept driving at me with my back to the zone right before the final. If I start in something high, I'm gonna go for it

    I changed at the top tier last night which I believe is the first time, someone came up to me at the edge in a slower car which was rather foolish, you'd think people would learn by now.

    9 or 10 I can see is doable although still high. 13 though is crazy, it's like one every minute more or less. Ideally you'd quickly find a high tier car but the hard part is getting people to race you, as they often run away which is annoying (which is where having a fast car early on would help a lot). Then you need the luck of the races being short, not 3-4 miles through trees etc.

    If you ever manage 13 it would be good to see a whole race video. To me it sounds like a one in a million type fluke though but who knows.

    What is impressive to me is the reactivity of the team to fix Eliminator issues so fast when day 1 nasty bugs of online are still there frustrating every online players.

    We have there a feature they are polishing to be included in FH5 which leads to second point that the lack of polishing for other features certainly means those are not expected for next version or totally revamped ( invest on what you keep, forget about what is revamped or wasted for the next version )

    Back to FH4, the ultimate good players are now gone which is letting you a chance to win, rammers/kids enjoy eliminator. As a result non ranked online FFA and even TA have never been less agressive.

    Stream, Eliminator / stuff , few useless cars and some near to lies answers... I have same woaw as I had for the release of Iphone 10, 11 ... never mind, the latest, are we yet to 12. ...

    I wonder, does this update change the HUGE TEXT on the screen in Eliminator which remains on screen for way too long. GO! It says. Well I will, when you get out of the way and show me where the destination is. Does it really take five whole seconds to read the word 'GO!' ? Maybe my reading skills are above average but it doesn't take me that long.

    Also at the start of an Eliminator round, a large graphic telling me I am in the Eliminator mode (no, really?) blocks my view while I try to see if there are any car drops nearby (I usually spawn by the wind farm) and as not all players do start at the exact same time, I want to make sure I see and grab them before someone else does. This graphic is not only huge but it stays on screen far too long and is surrounded by animated colours similar to the car drop smoke colour. So it's problematic.

    I hope these were addressed.

    First impression of the Hummer, it's probably gonna be my new favorite off-road truck dethroning the Rebel. The suspension is very very soft when taking jumps

    You'd need a large portion of the 64 trying to run and hide from each other for it to be even possible, some games you won't even see 13 opponents before the final race.

    It was the most requested car for a long, long time. I can only pray the car programmers did their job. I'm seeing it stock between Pi 910 and 920 because it surely comes stock with race tires.


    Looks to be stock at S1 900, as it’s now in the Car Collection. Base stats of:

    Speed - 7.8
    Handling - 8.5
    Acceleration - 10
    Launch - 10
    Braking - 9.1

    Appreciate stats don’t mean much in Forza but, given it’s stock AWD, first impression is it could have potential?

    I've seen some "time travellers" in online adventures yesterday using it in S900.
    Didn't seem that great.
    Handling looked okay from what I could see but the power/weight ratio seems bad. I don't think it'll do outstanding things at S1 and the normal Huracan will be the better option.
    S2 will probably be too much for it, especially in comparison to the cars with race aero or beefed up PO's.
    Looks better than the Pista though.

    People who never liked freeroam werent gonna like this mode anyway. Freeroam is STILL my favorite event in FH4 because I get to use my own cars. Eliminator is nice but i'm not a big fan of the factory cars. The tire pressure, the suspension, the braking and especially the transmission setups. Even if a car has only 100 hp opposed to 1000hp, I could STILL setup up the gears to max out the engine speed in the highest gear. Majority of the cars that are level 6 and under can barely get to the top of the 4th gear without gravity helping you get there.
