Quote:
Series 6 is here! Along with another cycle of season changes and events coming into the game, Series 6 is bringing brand new content in the form of new racing events, new Car Pass vehicles to enjoy, and more. Here’s an overview of the Series 6 highlights:



Here’s a closer look at some of the new features coming into the game with Series 6:

New Horizon Story: Skill Streak
A new Horizon Story series is here! Available at level 60, the Skill Streak story series can be found close to the Stone Circle. Event creator Jaimin needs your help finding the answer to questions that can only be answered at the Horizon Festival. You know, questions like, “Just how fast can you drive an EB110 while NOT hitting anything?” or “How much can one hoon in a railyard?” Find out in this multi-chapter event featuring some of the hottest, hoon-ready cars in Forza Horizon 4.

Seasonal Playground Games
If you love to compete in Playground Game events, we’ve now added a new Seasonal Playground Games feature with Series 6. Previously, players could only access Playground Games events via Online Adventure or while in a Horizon Life convoy. The new Seasonal Playground Games lets players simply drive up to the events and sign up; players will be matched across the community and then can jump in and play. There’s new rewards to earn as well, including the Volkswagen Global Rallycross, the Hot Wheels Boneshaker, the Lotus 2-Eleven, and a Super Wheelspin.

Seasonal Street Races
Street Scene joins the Seasonal event rotation with Street Race Seasonal Championships, offering great rewards, including Ken Block gear!

Series 6 Car Pass
Series 6 features the final set of cars coming to the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass and it’s a great list of vehicles. [EDIT]
Series 6 features the final set of cars coming to the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass and it’s a great pair of vehicles. There include the positively boat-like 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible and the return of TVR in the form of the hotly anticipated TVR Griffith.

Alongside the new Car Pass cars, we’re adding new reward cars like the 2001 TVR Tuscan S and two Quartz Regalia models, including the new-to-Forza Regalia Type D. These two Final Fantasy XV vehicles will both be available to earn as gameplay rewards starting after the Summer season change on February 14. [Mod Edit - the Quartz is an Autumn reward and the Type D is available from the Regalia Car Mastery tree. - MM]In the future players can look forward to more cars coming into Forza Horizon 4, including community favorites like the 1994 Honda Prelude Si and the 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo.

Seasonal PG games should be fun and more street race seasonals. Is there any chance the old flag rush will make a return? This new capture the flag game isnt fun at all. Alot of sitting around guarding the base

They said Hot Wheels Bone Shaker, not Rip Rod. I love that they are going to have exclusive cars as rewards for PVP playground games.

Question answered from chat:

Rip Rod yes but Bone Shaker no. I absolutely hate to be in a lobby with ANYONE driving those. I get lobbies where over 50% are in them and they're extra aggressive. Its an unfair advantage in A class, in S1 still an advantage

New Feature called Festival Playlist

Wall riding fix "which we had hoped to put in Series 6 has been dropped back to Series 7" because they are making sure they get it right.

Answering a chat question, there will be an opportunity to earn the Capri FE in the future.

Is there other language support for the forums? A bunch of the routecomp entries never even entered unless they entered without posting on the forum as per rules? Only thing I can think of, is there a non english forum with contests as well? Cause dang. I cannot find some of those winners anywhere. Lots o work for good routes, so would be frustrating elsewise....

Sweet calf, both winters and mountain one by broseff. None of those tracks, nor their username ever posted.

Edit 2:. Or qghosts entry. 5/8 not sure where they are. Has gotta be other language localizations?

Yeah. It has me a bit flustered. Lots of time to get a route right. I thought my entries this time had ones better than the ones I submitted last time.

Specially the ken block ones. Mine were solid with great drivertar performance. The c class winter buggy one I loved racing over and over. I was sure one would win considering the limited entries. More interest in novelty senna tracks with tiny checkpoints than competitive themed racetracks I guess that they didnt even choose winners from entries.

Unless is foreign forums they also went to?

Edit:. I mean, I dont mind losing. I just like to know and compare, understand why so I can come back stronger next time with routes that both challenge but are intuitive to the player. Notably trying to avoid trick corners requiring full track memorization just to complete or clunky forced route that dont flow.

Good, cause I really want that Prelude, but I've never touched the route creator.

Edit: Did they actually say they would be available as seasonal rewards or just that they would be available exclusively through competitions?

Okay. So routecomp2. Rules are no resubmissions from past contest and example is summer entries had to be #9 gymkhana focus which is s class and track time of five minutes max.

However, this one is winner... From routecomp 1, anything goes A class and six minutes race time.

I am probably going to dissapoint you, but the Ultimate Edition that you (and I and many others) have bought, might be not so Ultimte as you think.
Sure, they will give us some free cars you can win each month in the future, mostly cars from older forza's.
However, If you look at the trend of previous forza's, the next carpacks (8 cars a pack) you will have to pay.

Well, then I am never entering routecomp again. So I have routes from last one which would have been fantastic. But because I entered, I am invalid from using them. Had I not entered, all my invalid routes would have been valid. Fantastic. Nope. Not entering again. What is the point of being restricted because I am active.

Good thing am at work else I would just be deleting the lot of em. Very very frustrating to keep in non confrontational language.

Edit: My stressed side was wondering now what would happen with community challenge if grassroots was removed...

I sort of see where they are coming from, only if us active peeps from this one also had our previous ones in the pool, but seriously... Better tracks than last time losing to non winners...

Edit 2:. And if they were good, peeps love community events. More stuff like that, get more peeps into the contest for more entries. Promote it. How many do not even know contests exist...
