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."

JOHNIWANNA @ BARRETT-JACKSON
  • "Last month we unveiled the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 7 – a collection of eclectic autos that are just as comfortable fetching high prices on the auction block as they are tearing up the asphalt. Last month our own Johniwanna headed down to Scottsdale, AZ, for a look at the real-life Barrett-Jackson auction. What he discovered was one of the largest automotive events in the world, full of incredible collections, and interesting characters. Here’s a look at how John’s trip went:"

Forza Week in Review 2-22-19
Brian Ekberg
Friday, February 22, 2019
www.forzamotorsport.net/news/wir_2_22_19

Quote:
I’d like to lead this week’s edition of the Forza Week in Review with half of a story. This is a story of a young woman named Akane, daughter of Brian Beardow, who is the founder of the wheel company fifteen52. Akane was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a common form of cancer among children and young adults. Since the diagnosis, Akane has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments and her parents have understandably re-adjusted their lives to focus on their daughter’s care.

Pro driver and Forza streamer Verena Mei (who hosts her #HeyWatchThis show every Friday on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels) is friends with the Beardow family and was the first to alert the Forza Community to Akane’s journey. Working together with a very special collection of Forza community members, Verena has arranged a special tribute to Akane, which will appear in next week’s edition of Verena’s Friday show.

In the interest of not spoiling the surprise for Akane and her family, I don’t want to reveal anything more – thus only telling “half” of the story here in today’s Forza Week in Review. For the rest of the story, please make sure to tune in to Verena’s show on March 1 starting at 10 a.m. Pacific, and look for more in an upcoming edition of the WIR.

Now let’s get you caught up with the latest news in the world of Forza.



AUTUMN CONTENT - discussion thread
  • "As noted in our Series 6 Autumn rundown story, there’s a lot to love about Autumn in Series 6, including the chance to finally grab those from Final Fantasy XV Regalia model vehicles. Getting the original Regalia will require you to take part in the Autumn Community Championship – which features two original race routes from players Little Gibus and EmeraldSundisk. Win the series against Expert-level Drivatar opponents and the Regalia is yours."
  • "Want that off-road-ready Quartz Regalia Type-D? Hopefully you’ve got some Car Mastery points saved up. You can unlock the Type-D for 99 car mastery points (in addition to the amount of points required to “climb the tree” and have the Type-D perk available to unlock). That’s a steep price for sure, but the chance to drive one of the largest and most unique cars in all of Forza Horizon 4 is worth it."


#FORZAFRIDAY WITH DAN GREENAWALT
  • "We’re introducing guests to our weekly #ForzaFriday stream these days. Last week we had fun with Jon Knoles playing Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7, and this week we’re welcoming a name most Forza fans will recognize right away – Dan Greenawalt, the creative director for the Forza franchise. This will be Dan’s first appearance on #ForzaFriday in a long time, and your chance to catch up with Dan and hear his perspective on Forza in general, and ask some questions too. Join us starting at 3 p.m. Pacific on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels."


LIVESTREAM CALENDAR
  • "Thanks to the talented art team at Turn 10 who created these cool promotional graphics for other Forza streams, including for Johniwanna and Verena, with more to come. You’ll be seeing these images beginning to pop up on Forza social feeds over the next few weeks."
  • Week of Feb. 25: #TuesdayDrive w/Johniwanna and #ThumbsUpThursday w/Johniwanna, #HeyWatchThis w/Verena Mei, #ForzaFriday w/Mechberg


#FORZAMONTHLY - MARCH EDITION
  • "The March edition of Forza Monthly is coming on Friday, March 8 starting at 11 a.m. Pacific. Look for more details on the show in this space next week."

This week we’re tackling the winter chill in Forza Horizon 4, bringing you another update on the #TeamAkane project, and celebrating some of the amazing accomplishments by members of the Forza community. Let’s go!


SEASONAL CONTENT & CONTENT UPDATES
  • Winter: "For the full rundown of events, check out our Season Update story posted yesterday on the site."
  • "This week we released two small updates for Forza Horizon 4. These updates were for minor edits to four Horizon playlist songs, among other changes. For the full list of updates, check out the Release Notes (Feb. 25, Feb. 27) on the Forza Support site."


#TEAMAKANE UPDATE
Quote:
Earlier today, on Verena Mei’s #HeyWatchThis livestream on the Forza channel, viewers got to see a tribute to Akane Beardow – daughter of fifteen52 founder Brad Beardow. As I mentioned in last week’s edition of the Week in Review, Akane was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is currently undergoing treatment.

It’s an understatement to say that the Forza community has come up huge in support of Akane and her family; especially the PTG community, who created an astounding tribute video that the team put together in support of Akane. The video aired on Verena’s show earlier today (be sure and watch the replay if you missed it the first time around) and features incredible video work and an astounding set of liveries created by the talented PTG artists, all dedicated to Akane and her ongoing battle.

Thanks to each livery designer, tuner, photographer, and creator who contributed to this project; many of those liveries and tunes are available for download in Forza Horizon 4. Grab your favorite and show your support for #TeamAkane the next time you’re playing. Here’s the full list of creators who contributed to the project:" (list of names and cars)


DON JOEWON SONG'S 'PROJECT ARCADE
  • '"Have you ever wondered what Forza Horizon 4 would look like as a quarter-eating Arcade game? Or perhaps the better question is: What if Forza community creator Don Joewon Song created his own game? DJS took the question to its extreme with his latest video creation dubbed “Project Arcade.” Without giving too much away, DJS combines some skilled graphics work with his patented mix of incredible driving to create this fictional arcade Horizon game.

Here’s a Forza first – an edition of the Forza Week in Review published on a Thursday! Okay, that’s probably not earth-shattering news but there’s a very good reason we’re going live with the WIR a day early: because tomorrow is a huge day on the Forza broadcast channels, with a full lineup of programming starting at 10 a.m. Pacific. Here’s the rundown:

Playground Games will kick things off with their Series 7 stream, originating from Playground HQ. Join PG’s Retro Krystal, Chris, and Andy as they take you through the upcoming update for Forza Horizon 4, which is launching next week.

Right after Playground finishes their broadcast, we’ll be live from Seattle with the March edition of Forza Monthly, which features a full line-up of fun and great guests. Playground’s Mike Brown will be on hand to talk more about Forza Horizon 4’s Series 7 update, and we’ll be joined by Chris Esaki and Devin Carraway from Turn 10 to show off the March update in Forza Motorsport 7 (which is arriving on Tuesday, March 12).

But that’s not all! We’ll also have two very special guests on the show – Formula Drift driver Chelsea DeNofa will be on hand to talk about his career and some cool stuff happening in Forza, and we’ll be joined by Turn 10 creative director Dan Greenawalt for a discussion on the creative process that drives Forza. In all, it’s going to be a jam-packed show that you won’t want to miss.

You’ll also want to stick around after Forza Monthly is over, because Verena Mei will be following up with her regular Friday show #HeyWatchThis, where she’ll be playing Forza Horizon 4. Last but not least I’ll be back at 3 p.m. Pacific for another edition of #ForzaFriday, talking about all the day’s news and hanging out with the Forza Community as we play Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7.

Join us tomorrow on the Forza Mixer, Twitch, and YouTube channels for all the fun, beginning at 10 a.m. Pacific. Finally, here’s a quick look at next week’s streaming schedule.

See you next week!

The Series 7 update for Forza Horizon 4 arrives today! This series includes some big updates for Horizon 4, including new achievements, new vehicles to explore, Showcase Remixes, and the new Festival Playlist feature.

Here’s an overview of what to expect:



https://twitter.com/WeAr...tus/1104098605705633792


FESTIVAL PLAYLIST - discussion thread
  • "Beginning with the summer season change – which will occur this Thursday, March 14 -- The Series 7 update adds a new feature called Festival Playlist. Each season, the Festival Playlist gives you a clear view of everything that’s going on in Forza Horizon 4 season and keeps track of everything you’ve done. From #Forzathon challenges to new items in the shop to Rivals events and more, the Festival Playlist is your all-in-one spot for everything happening in the game each week. Plus, complete all the weekly events to earn some of Horizon’s most desirable rewards."


RTR CARS IN FORZA HORIZON 4
  • 2018 Ford #25 Mustang RTR
  • 2018 Ford #88 Mustang RTR
  • 2018 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5
  • "Keep an eye on the Festival Playlist each week to find out how you can add these amazing rides to your garage!"


NEW ACHIEVEMENTS - discussion thread
  • "The Series 7 update adds 18 new Achievements to Forza Horizon 4, worth a total of 500 Xbox Gamerscore. These achievements support the features added since launch, including the new Horizon Stories events (British Racing Green, Isha’s Taxis, and Skill Streak), Free-for-All Adventure and Route Blueprint, plus achievements for participating in #Forzathon events and completing seasonal content."


SHOWCASE REMIXES
  • "We’ve added a twist to two of our most popular Showcase Events! For a limited time only during Series 7, you’ll be able to race against the Flying Scotsman in summer while driving a Ford Anglia in our “Ninte & Three Quarters” Showcase Remix. Veterans of UNSC Fleetcom’s Halo Experience can find a new challenge as the training exercise is re-run in winter, called the “Assault on the Control Room” Showcase Remix. You’ll need to complete the regular Showcases first to unlock the remixed versions."

With the Series 7 update for Forza Horizon 4 comes the new Festival Playlist feature that provides insight into what’s going in the current season and tracks your progress in those events. The Festival Playlist also gives you a look at what is coming across for the remaining seasons within the series.

In addition to showing the coming championships, challenges, #Forzathon events, and more, you can see what rewards will be on offer for completing those racing events. Each week there is a vehicle reward for achieving 50 percent of the total events and for getting the full 100 percent completed.

Below is a breakdown of the cars available to you during the Series 7 Seasons.

Forza Week in Review 3-15-19

Coming off the back of a huge day of streaming on the Forza channels last Friday, this week we saw updates in both Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7. Series 7 is here in FH4 (along with the warm weather of the summer season) and, with it, new features like the Festival Playlist; a one-stop-shop to see everything that’s happening each season.

There’s lots of stuff going on in Horizon 4 this summer and great rewards to win. With that in mind, we changed up our story format here on FM.net regarding Horizon 4’s season changes. With today’s story, we’re focusing on the cars that are available to win. As you’ll see now there are two reward cars per season (in the case of summer, for example, the Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5 and the Porsche 914/6) and two Series reward cars (for Series 7, the Ferrari F50 GT and the Ford Capri Forza Edition). Good luck on collecting all the amazing Series 7 cars.

Over in Forza Motorsport 7, the March update launched on Tuesday and brought three new RTR Spotlight cars: the Spec 5 Mustang, as well as the drift cars piloted by Formula Drift pros Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Chelsea DeNofa. Alongside the cars, the March update also featured a new cockpit drift camera, collision improvements, and some wheel settings changes that you can learn more about in our March update announcement story.
