NEW FEATURES

Horizon Backstage is a new feature that offers more choice in collecting exclusive reward cars from the Festival Playlist. See the announcement article and Series 28 livestream for an overview. Here's how it works:

Daily Voting: October 15 - 21
Collecting a Backstage Pass or reward car is not available yet during Spring season in Series 27, but voting is live now. Daily voting (starting each weekday at 7:30am Pacific) between a pair of cars will determine the group of reward car choices in Series 28. Go to the Cars tab of the pause menu and select Horizon Backstage to vote each day.




Earn a Pass, Collect a Car: October 22 - November 19
Once Summer season starts on October 22, head to the Festival Playlist menu where you will see that 50% completion of the Series events will earn a Pass. Completion percentage comes from seasonal events as well as the Monthly Rivals and Online Ranked Adventure qualification. You can see a preview of the Series 28 Festival Playlist in the livestream here. 50% Series completion may take more than one season to reach depending on your play time.

Once you have your Backstage Pass, head to the "H" icon on the map in the Horizon Festival area and enter the Backstage menu where you can use your pass to collect one of the car choices for your garage.

Since the Backstage menu shows a counter for "Your Passes" and you can only earn one pass in Series 28, it appears that you can bank your pass for a future series. Stay tuned for more info from www.twitter.com/ForzaHorizon and the next monthly livestream in November.
(This feature was the 'Wayne's World' clue from #ForbenFriday above).
