FORTUNE ISLAND DLC EXPANSION - discussion thread
  • "This past weekend, during the X018 broadcast of “Inside Xbox” from Mexico City, Playground Games announced the first expansion for Forza Horizon 4 – Fortune Island! In a brief video hosted by Playground’s Ben Thaker-Fell we heard about the first details of what is going to be the largest expansion ever in the Forza Horizon series."
  • "During the brief teaser, we also caught a glimpse of new Lamborghini Urus, which is one of the drivable vehicles that will be part of the expansion. Look for much more information on Fortune Island in the coming weeks ahead of its release on December 13!"


SERIES 3 PREVIEW LIVESTREAM NOV. 19
  • "Live from Playground Games, don’t miss Monday’s special Forza Horizon 4 stream starting at 10 a.m. Pacific/6 p.m. GMT on the official Forza Mixer and Twitch channels. During the show, the team will be showing off the latest goodies from the upcoming Series 3 update for the game. The team will also be joined by a special guest for an expert’s insight into the great user-created Blueprint events the community has been sharing. "


GYMKHANA 10 CARS IN FH4
  • "One other bit of fun you might have noticed during the X018 “Inside Xbox” airing: a fun video showcasing all of the Hoonigan cars arriving in Forza Horizon 4. Some – like the Hoonitruck and the Ford Escort Cosworth -- are already in the game. Others are still to come, including the 2016 Ford Focus RS RX and the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST, which are still to come. Then there’s the 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Hoonicorn Mustang, which is available this week in the #Forzathon Shop for just 200 #Forzathon points! Here’s a look at all of the cars in action: https://youtu.be/K2492gqA5II"


WEEKLY SEASONAL CONTENT: SPRING - discussion thread
  • "The 1988 BMW M5 Forza Edition and the 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Hoonicorn Mustang are available in the #Forzathon shop and there are two new Vauxhall models in Forza Horizon 4 this week for Car Pass owners – the 2010 Vauxhall Insignia VXR and the 2004 Vauxhall VX220 Turbo."


PHOTO CONTESTS
  • Hot Wheels: "A quick update on the Hot Wheels photo contest we announced on the November edition of ‘Forza Monthly.’ " postponed, TBA.
  • Your Shot Contest: "We’re opening a new photo contest where the winning entries will be used as intro and outro graphics for two of our weekly streaming shows – Johniwanna’s “Thumbs Up Thursday” and StarGirlRacing’s “#HeyWatchThis.” This contest is different from our normal photo contests, in that is has some specific asks of entrants in terms of which cars to use, liveries, etc. For the full rundown, check out the post on the Community Events section of the Forza Forums."


THANKSGIVING WEEK SCHEDULE
  • "Next week is Thanksgiving here in the States and that means there won’t be a new edition of the Forza Week in Review – we’ll return with another edition on Friday, November 30."
  • "While the WIR is taking a week off, we’ve still got a great week of streaming shows happening. In addition to the Playground Games Series 3 stream on Monday, we’ve got pro race driver Shannon McIntosh filling in for Alie Tacq on Monday, and the ForzaRC’s own Mellish filling in for Johniwanna on Thursday’s edition of “#ThumbsUpThursday!” Here’s a look at how the week shakes out:"

Forza Week in Review 11-30-18
Brian Ekberg
Friday, November 30, 2018
www.forzamotorsport.net/news/wir_11_30_18


AUTUMN SEASONAL CONTENT - discussion
  • "Autumn falls arrives every four weeks in Forza Horizon 4 and we’re thrilled to see the leaves change and the cool new stuff arrive in the game this week. The last couple of weeks for Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass owners have been especially great. For purveyors of pure speed, S2 class rocket-ships like the 2018 Aston Martin Vantage and the 2005 Ferrari FXX have been welcome additions. Elsewhere, elegant British makes like the McLaren 650S Spider and the 1953 Jaguar C-Type have brought a touch of class to Car Pass owners’ garages."


SERIES 3 UPDATE - discussion
  • "Last week Playground Games gave fans a deep dive into the great stuff that arrived with the Series 3 update for Forza Horizon 4. Among the topics discussed were new painting options, a look at the quality of life improvements coming to the game, as well as some discussion on the Fortune Island expansion coming to the game. If you missed it live, check out the replay here: https://youtu.be/yRjAoXwpiLo Look for Playground’s next livestream, covering the Series 4 update, in the near future."


YOUR SHOT PHOTO CONTEST - submission thread
  • "This weekend is your last chance to submit your entry to our “Your Shot” photo contest. Send us your best photo with some pre-defined liveries (see the rules on the Forza Forums for all the details) and the winners will see their photos used as show assets for livestreams hosted by Verena Mei and our own Johniwanna. This is a great chance for photographers to have their work highlighted in a cool way, so let’s see what you’ve got!"


#FORZAMONTHLY LIVESTREAM - discussion
  • "The next episode of Forza Monthly will be broadcast live on Thursday, December 13. Yes, that’s the same day as the launch of the Fortune Island expansion for Forza Horizon 4 and, no, that’s not a coincidence. In addition to checking out Fortune Island with members of Playground Games, we’ll be diving deep into the upcoming Forza Race Regulations system in Forza Motorsport 7 with developers from Turn 10."


FH4 ON EXTRA LIFE LIVESTREAM - bit.ly/XboxExtraLife
  • "The Xbox Extra Life stream has begun! This annual charity livestream raises money for the Extra Life charity and features tons of great games and guests throughout the day. Forza will be hitting the airwaves tonight at 6 p.m. Pacific (right after today’s edition of #ForzaFriday) to play some Forza Horizon 4 with viewers. I’ll be joined by Kate Yeager and Graeme Boyd during the segment and in addition to playing the game, we’ll have some Forza-related goodies on hand that you can bid on to help raise money for the Extra Life charity.

Forza Horizon 4 ranks #4 on the first Xbox Gameplay Chart


Introducing The Xbox Gameplay Chart
By Rich Stone, 4 days ago
https://www.trueachievements.com/n35488/introducing-the-xbox-gameplay-chart

Quote:
We wanted to produce something that produced a more accurate representation of the titles all Xbox gamers are actually playing, so we've produced the first ever Xbox Gameplay Chart.

Each chart follows these key points:
  • The chart is compiled on a Monday morning, and takes gameplay data from the previous 7 days.
  • The data is taken from a huge pool of active Xbox gamers (well over half a million)
  • The gamers come from everywhere across the globe
  • The gamers are not just TrueAchievements users, it's a general cross section of Xbox gamers
  • We are not looking at achievement data — if someone plays a game and doesn't unlock anything, it still counts
  • We will not be releasing individual numbers for each game, just their chart positions

We are going to be releasing the Xbox Gameplay Chart every Monday at 4pm GMT

Fortune Island

Thursday, December 6, 2018

https://twitter.com/WeArePlayground/status/1070967204278099968

Treasure, adventure, and epic driving action awaits you on Fortune Island, the first expansion for the critically acclaimed open world racing game Forza Horizon 4, developed by Playground Games. Fortune Island launches on December 13 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC and is included for players who own the Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition, Ultimate Add-Ons Bundle, or Expansion Bundle.

Travel to Fortune Island and experience the most treacherous expansion ever seen in the Forza Horizon series. Fortune Island is full of extreme terrain just begging to be explored in the vehicle of your choice. Navigate the sheer cliffside roads of Laufey’s Throne at speeds that are only limited by your courage. Get slideways through a massive drift zone on the Needle Climb – the largest paved mountain switchback road in Forza Horizon history. From the forests of Oldlarch Forest to the mysterious sunken village of Fenholm, Fortune Island rewards the curious and the brave alike.

Official Trailer: https://youtu.be/F-e_447DY4U

While the terrain of the island is dangerous enough – and ideal for the dozens of events Cross Country, Asphalt Races, Drift Zones, and more that you’ll encounter – the weather is just as perilous. Moody, atmospheric storms, driving wind, lightning strikes, and the beauty of the Aurora Borealis all await as you chart a new location for the Horizon Festival.



You’ll find new challenges and new events to take part in around practically corner. The “fortune” in Fortune Island is a very real thing. As soon as you arrive on the island, you’ll be immersed in a quest to search down treasure chests scattered across the expanse of the island. Solve the riddles and locate the treasure chests to add millions of credits to your bank account, as well as some amazing new vehicles.

Along the way you’ll take part in dozens of new events, including the brand-new Trailblazer PR Stunts, where your goal will be to find the quickest route between two points. With huge elevation changes, and tricky terrain at every turn, Trailblazer events are a test of route planning, split-second reactions, and driving skill all at once. In addition, players can live a new Horizon Story: Drift Club 2.0.

The epic driving experiences of Fortune Island demand a lineup of amazing vehicles to add to your Forza Horizon 4 garage. From the latest iteration of Lamborghini’s Urus SUV to rough-and-ready rides like the Funco Motorsports F9 or the Ram 1500 Rebel TRX Concept, there’s no shortage of vehicular awesomeness to choose from. Here’s a look at all ten vehicles coming to the expansion:

2019 Lamborghini Urus
This isn’t your grandfather’s LM002. Whereas Lamborghini’s original “Lambo truck” was bulky and at home in the off-road, the Urus excels on pavement. Sure, the power of the Urus’ turbo V8 is more than the V12 of the LM002, but it’s the technology like all-wheel drive that allows it to really sink its teeth in, and sleek styling that pulls it all together. A super SUV like the Urus will blow your mind both with what it is capable of and just how good you look on the journey.

2018 BMW M5
The M5 has always been the standard bearer among the BMW line, with the larger 7-series being more pure luxury and the 3-series a bit more on the playful side. To be an M5, it must do everything right. Comfort that makes you never want to leave the seat, power that ensures you own the road, and handling that is part super saloon and part ultimate sports car. The newest M5 ticks all those boxes and more, including all-wheel drive, an M5 first. Compare it against previous generations and you’ll see the results of years of evolution of the ultimate driving machine.

2017 Ram 1500 Rebel TRX Concept
If you are going to talk the talk, you better walk the walk and the Ram Rebel TRX treads all over everything in its class. Throughout this concept vehicle you find features that would usually show up in specialty builds, including thirteen inches of suspension travel front and rear, 37-inch tires, and a detuned Hellcat motor that delivers more than enough grunt to break all four tires loose. The fun doesn’t stop there. The Rebel TRX features bulging fenders, a huge hood scoop, and enough lighting to scare off a herd of sheep from a mile away. Now you can have straight from the factory what used to take a pile of aftermarket parts to build. Sometimes “bought” not “built” is ok, and the Rebel TRX is proof.

2002 Koenigsegg CC8S
This is the car that made Koenigsegg what it is today. Outside the prototype, the CC8S was the first car Christian Von Koenigsegg created. It was also the first to sport the amazing dihedral-synchro helix actuation doors, and only six CC8S models were built between 2002 and 2004. The CC8S chassis, suspension, brakes and many components are all bespoke. The powertrain is a heavily massaged and re-engineered 4.7-liter Ford V-8 with twin-superchargers making 655 horsepower to the rear wheels. This is where the legend began, and given this anything-but-humble beginning, it’s no wonder that Koenigsegg has gone on to create some of the most amazing cars in the world.

2018 Exomotive Exocet Off-Road
You might think that the folks at Exomotive built the Exocet Off-Road kit just for a world like Forza Horizon 4. After all, the Exocet Off-Road is purpose-built for taking on whatever you throw at it, devouring it, and leaving others in its wake. However, in real life, the Exocet Off-Road takes the heart of the nimble and ultimately friendly Mazda Miata and turns it into a beast that will haunt your driving dreams. It’s not a buggy but with its oversize tires and steel tube chassis, it’s just as capable. There is horsepower galore and the kind of fun that is only found in a vehicle as unique as this kit car creation.

2012 Lamborghini Aventador J
Asked to create something spectacular for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Filippo Perini came up with this concept car-turned-one-off-masterpiece over a weekend. The car was put together over just six weeks. At the J’s heart is the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12; outside little remains the same. This is a pure open-air thrill machine, with no roof, no windscreen, an few amenities. There was only one made of this concept in the real world, and it was sold to a lucky owner who took it home after the show. In the world of Forza, anyone can experience this gorgeous car that is all about melting faces and collecting checkered flags.

2010 Saleen S5S Raptor
Saleen’s S7 model became something unique: an American supercar. The S5S Raptor is more civilized, but that doesn’t mean it is any less than what you would expect from Saleen. It has all the ingredients that make up a proper supercar: 0-60 in around three seconds, a top speed of over 200 mph, and even a few creature comforts. Underneath you will find a supercharged 5.0-liter V8, and twin wishbone control arms on each corner. This Raptor, which never actually made it into production, is a bird that will hunt down even the most elusive prey while delighting the eyes and ears with its sound and motion.

1953 Morris Minor Series II Traveler
It’s not how fast you get there, it’s how much fun you are having along the way. That’s how one must look at the ride from behind the wheel of this Morris Minor Estate. Somewhat reminiscent of a chopped, channeled, narrowed, and shortened Ford Woody of the same era, the Series II Traveler featured a tiny four-banger. No doubt, you will find the Traveler to be an outstanding piece of machinery, so long as getting anywhere fast isn’t one of your needs. Tiny and efficient, made of wood, and with all of around 30 horsepower, it will quickly find a place in your heart, or maybe even a route between that thick patch of trees that nothing else could conquer.

2018 Funco Motorsports F9
To call it a buggy does not do it justice; in fact it would be wrong. This is a sandcar, built by a family that has been building “some of the baddest sandcars on the planet.” Ever since Gil George built his first sandcar in 1968 people have been asking to buy them. Among the field of Funco builds, the F9 stands atop them all. We are talking about a vehicle that will bust standing wheelies, in the sand, from 60-100 mph. To do that takes massive horsepower, and a high boost twin-turbo LS motor out back, making an outrageous 1,750 ponies does the trick. Making it the most powerful vehicle to come to Forza yet. Of course it’s not just massive power, it’s the ultimate chassis, suspension, and driver focused amenities. Take this beast for a ride and it will quickly become apparent where the “Fun” in Funco comes from.

2015 Hoonigan GYMKHANA 8 Ford Fiesta ST RX43
This is Ken Block’s Global Rallycross car, developed by M-Sport. The RX43 was featured in both Gymkhana Six and Eight -- who could forget the mighty donuts he spun around the Ford Raptor two-wheeling, or how the RX43 destroyed a field of ultimate supercars off the line in Dubai? Thankfully, in the game, you can disregard that “Do not attempt to recreate any of the activities performed” statement that bogs down real life. After all, this is Forza! Hoon responsibly!

For more information on Fortune Island, check out the Fortune Island livestream direct from Playground Games HQ on December 13 starting at 7 a.m. Pacific. The PG team will be taking viewers for an in-depth tour of the island so tune in to the official Forza Mixer and Twitch channels to catch al of the action live!

The first expansion for Forza Horizon 4, Fortune Island is a brand-new location full of treacherous roads, bountiful treasure, and epic driving experiences. Playground Games has done an amazing job of creating this island of extremes -- from spectacular weather effects, to roads and terrain that are built for exploration and racing (and some immense Route Creator potential!). If you missed it last night, here’s the trailer: https://youtu.be/F-e_447DY4U"
  • "For more on Fortune Island, check out our announcement article here on the site. It all launches on December 13th and you can look forward to an in-depth exploration of the expansion straight from Playground Games HQ on December 13th starting at 7 a.m. Pacific on the official Forza Mixer and Twitch channels."


SERIES 3 WINTER SEASONAL CONTENT - discussion thread
  • "The winter season has arrived in Forza Horizon 4 and, with it, new cars and events. Heading the list for Car Pass owners are the drift-ready 2018 Silverado 1500 DeBerti Design Drift Truck and the… well, ready-for-I-don’t-know-what 1965 Peel Trident."
  • "Elsewhere around the world of Forza Horizon 4, winter is bringing new events for the rough-and-ready vehicles in your garage. The Edinburgh Sports Utility championship features A Class Sports Utility Heroes vehicles, while the Glen Rannoch Extreme Off-road Championship finds a heady balance between raw speed (S1 Class) and off-road racing."
