I saw only single races (exhibition races).

No evidence of championships being back for FH4. Maybe championships will only show up as an option once you complete the exhibition?

No, the customization they've shown so far did no more than stance a car or add one of the new bodykits. The devs say the PI formula was indeed changed and rebalanced, but we've not seen this in action just yet.

No official word on those either. I for one suspect Forzathon or multiplayer are involved somehow.

I assume since it's a clock. Most games mean't timed events.
So in this game, you probably have to finish the race with enough laps and crossed the line at the right time.

Artist's impression of my experience of the Winter stream:



Anyway, I wonder if Car Masteries give advantages to specific sets of cars in Team Adventure with particular bonuses for skills, skill chains and experience.

July 24: Winter



Quote:
Join us later today at 11am Pacific / 7pm UK time for the 3rd #ForzaHorizon4 livestream from the @WeArePlayground studios. This time around we will be taking a closer look at Winter and showing off new features, exclusive gameplay and developer interviews. https://mixer.com/forzamotorsport

https://twitter.com/Forz...atus/1021680166186180608

VOD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEdrvTKcDaA

During the stream, DLC codes for a white sweater were given away in the Mixer chat.

Ralph and Ben presented Winter gameplay around Glen Rannock (north end of the map)
- The more elevation, the thicker the snow. South on the map will see more frost.
- Elevation also determines where water is frozen or not.
- There are still roads not covered in snow so that hypercars etc can still be used.
- An onscreen timer will indicate a coming season change, followed by a brief cinematic, then change.
- There's a different world map screen for each season, so Winter's is snowy vs. the amber map of Autumn.
- Some Barn Finds will only appear in specific seasons (the lake island is only accessible in Winter)

Car Mastery: Ben Thaker-Fell showed the new way to earn Skills and spend Skill Points
- Menu shown.
- Every car has its own Car Mastery perk tree, designed toward the car's general use (offroad perks for offroad cars).
- A different car of the same model has the same tree but starts fresh, allowing you to spend points differently.
- There are up to 16 perks within a Mastery tree, unlocked in sequence with accumulated points.
- Unlocked perks stick to cars sold in the Auction House.
- There are new perks from FH3.
- Skill system is the same as previous games - drift, burnout, smash, etc - and can be chained together.
- The developers haven't calculated how long it will take to unlock full Mastery in all 450 cars

Forzathon
- Menu shown, with 1 Weekly and 3 Daily categories, and the Bonus.
- Completing Forzathon challenges earns Forzathon Points
- "Winter Bonus: Complete #Daily and # Weekly Challenge to earn # Bonus FP"
- Forzathon Shop menu shown, with cars, Wheelspins, Horns, and Clothing
- Forzathon Shop offerings change each week.
- "We don't want to gate any [cars]" behind features, so there won't be exclusive cars here not available anywhere else.

User Interface
- Matt Turner and Rich Burns work on menus, HUD, and motion graphics.
- Main Pause menu shown: Home / Horizon Life / Team Adventure / Creative Hub / Cars / Rivals / Clubs / Marketplace
- UI design focus is on pillars: Fun, Freedom, Beauty
- Pre-race menu graphics shown

Bonus Boards
- "usually about 150" boards in Forza Horizon games.
- Some boards are hidden in devious places - example gameplay shown.

Not to keen on the white space concept... very dull

Why not show your car in the beautiful environment they have created for us?

Totally agree. Just a lazy way out I think. Where I absolutely despise it is when you cross the finish line and the whole world vanishes except for the cars. Very jarring. Horizon 3 was much better in this regard.

I thought it was strange that they said seasons just change instantly using a cinematic when I'm almost sure in another video they were talking about how it was a gradual transition.

I also recall them saying the seasons change would be gradual vs a cinematic cut-scene (which imho would be lame).

News:
It's not apparently a timed raced, it's all about when you complete certain objectives, you get rewarded.

As I look at that Capri FE, I see that T10/PG has taken a page out of The Crew's book by turning a muscle car (along with others, I'm sure) into an off-road beast. Interesting.

I really hope they do a Q&A stream after the seasons streams are over, they say they will answer questions but they answer maybe 3-4 silly questions during an hour of streaming. I know they are trying to show seasons and they do that very well, and they show features that are new and amazing! But a proper Q&A closer to release would be great.

What I want to know is whether racing in Team Adventure is always with contact or not. I mean racing, not Survival. Or was autoghost supposed to be only for online freeroam?

#46 Posted : Tuesday, July 31, 2018 12:22:19 PM(UTC)
Im guessing that seeing as the auto ghost works for people your not grouped with in convoy, that perhaps the game considers all 12 players to be "grouped". This perhaps backed up by the guys saying that players need to take care to not collide their teammates when racing in order to maintain a strong team points total.
That is a total guess and maybe there will be a "collisions off" option when selecting team adventure but thinking about my second sentence above, i really dont think thats the case. Especially as they mentioned ranked and competitive modes around team adventure. If youre doing ranked its got to be challenging imo.

One of the devs said about rewind while freeroam rush. Why it's there, i mean is it a mistake or rewind is really there?
So how they call the team mode competitive? Rewind need to be only in coop or online freeroam. Online adventure and team adventure are not need a rewind.
It's not competitive, it will bring more additional problems and way of cheating.
Hope it's just a mistake.

I don't see how it can be used as a cheat if everyone else continues to move forward while you're rewinding.

When I saw the demo I literally thought the footage of Edinburgh was real. Watching tonight's stream was incredible. I've not been to Edinburgh for 20 years but will be looking forward to return in a couple of months in-game. Amazing looking game with more content that I could wave [Mod Edit - Abbreviated profanity, profanity and profanity that is disguised but still alludes to the words are not permitted - D]!
