This week we’ve got the latest events happening in both Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7, a look at the latest Bounty Hunter event in Forza 7, along with a special surprise for our own Johniwanna courtesy of our friends at PTG. Let’s go!


AUTUMN SEASONAL CONTENT - discussion thread
  • "This week the new season brings great new events, including the Autumn Community Championship, a new series of races where you can win prizes like the Patrol Outfit and the “Alright Guv’nah” Quick Chat phrase. Best of all, the championship routes themselves were created by members of the Forza community: AltaSilencia11, DaNammit86, and BeSeeingYouNo6. Congrats, folks!
  • "Elsewhere we’ve a new seasonal event where you can win the 1967 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL, and a new Porsche Cup Trial, with the Grey Modern Race Suit up for grabs. Over in the #Forzathon Shop you can purchase the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Forza Edition and the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, and more."


FH4 CAR PASS - HONDA AND MERCEDES
  • "Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass owners are also welcoming two new cars to the game this week – the legendary 2005 NSX-R GT (just begging for a proper Takata race livery!) and the classic 1929 Mercedes-Benz Super Sport Kurz Barker Roadster."


PTG SURPRISE FOR JOHNIWANNA
  • "We had a great moment in this week’s edition of #ThumbsUpThursday on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels. Our own Johniwanna was surprised by Forza community group PTG with a gift T-Shirt signed by members of the PTG family from all over the world. During the stream we welcomed PTG Monk and Costlesscape92, who made the trip to Turn 10 Studios to deliver the gift."
  • "Check out the replay and fast forward to the 40-minute mark to watch it for the first time or relive it again! https://mixer.com/Forza?vod=80320501"


STREAMING CALENDAR
  • "Join us today for another great edition of #ForzaFriday. In Forza Horizon 4 we’ll be checking out the two new Car Pass cars and hitting some Team Adventure... Watch it live starting at 3 p.m. Pacific over on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels."
  • Week of January 27 schedule: #TuesdayDrive and #ThumbsUpThursday with Johniwanna, #HeyWatchThis with Verena Mei, and #ForzaFriday with Mechberg
  • "A quick reminder that the next episode of Forza Monthly is coming on February 4. Look for more detail on the show in next week’s edition of the Week in Review."

Huge congratulations to the team at Playground Games for this fantastic achievement and thanks to everyone who voted for the game.

Now, let’s get you caught up with the rest of this week’s Forza news.
