We're constantly working to improve the experience in Forza Horizon 4. Below you will find a summary of items fixed or improved upon in this content update.

Version Number

PC: 1.264.748.2
Xbox: 1.264.748.0

New Features

Festival Playlist
The Series 7 update adds a new feature called Festival Playlist, starting in summer. The Playlist gives you a clear view of everything that’s going on at Horizon each Season and keeps track of everything you’ve done. Complete it all to earn some of Horizon’s most desirable rewards. This is an all-new way to play!

New Achievements
This update adds 18 new Achievements to Forza Horizon 4, worth a total of 500 gamerscore, which support the features added since launch. This includes the new Horizon Stories (British Racing Green, Isha’s Taxis, and Skill Streak), Free-for-All Adventure and Route Blueprint; plus Achievements for participating in #FORZATHON 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 NINE & THREE QUARTERS Showcase Remix, and 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.

  • Fixed an issue with the Character Customizer, where eye accessories would prevent hats from appearing

Oh No. Not More Formula Drift. Please NO! I cannot *Stand* Drifting in Games, it goes completely and totally against My Driving Style (Which is Hardcore Grip) and I Really do not enjoy it at all, why do you think I only have the first Event of (Yuck!) "Drift Club" completed and just got the Boss 302 on the Auction House?

I don't mind the FD Mustang if its Part of , Say, a Potential "Gittin Jr" Car Pack along with Say, the F150 RTR Ultimate Funhaver, "Brocky" the Ultra 4 Ford Bronco, the Canadian Tires NASCAR Series Ford Fusion RTR, an RTR Mustang Road Car, and *Maybe* the classic '69 RTR-X *if* Evil Alliance (Fans of NOLF 2 will get that Reference!) are willing to Sub Licence it... but that's about it! I really *Do Not* want to see *another* Formula Drift Car Pack, as I Really do not like the Drifting in this Game :(

Why can't we have some *Proper* GT3/GTE/GTLM Type Racing Cars again like we had in FH3? those are the Kind of Racing Cars I would like to See! Not more Formula Drift....things!

I dont like em either, but there has been a decent rotation. Drifting is also pretty huge and active part of forza right now. Honestly? It would be bad business to neglect. I dont like drifting or the drift cars, but have sorta put together my own style and now kinda enjoy it. Going for speed in drifting vs show and angle.

But one thing I do stress and hope the forza staff understand, this really will be the monthly stream than can mend or really burn the bridges with the horizon community. It will be important to while presenting, ensure you can share what horizons is to you, and discuss more things would like to change and update. Your vision for Horizon 4 as year progresses.

no more drift cars, PLEASE STOP!

i really don't understand why PG keep insisting on this **** and irritating majority players fanbase, look at whishlist thread, nobody asking for them period!


formula drift was the worst DLC of all time in forza's history, EVER, pure garbage nosense cars

if you want a car to drift, just use a modified tuning for purpose, but add stock cars instead


all stars pack from FH3 was a real useful pack, even for online MP

I enjoy drifting and the Formula Drift cars do it exceptionally well... but I agree, I'd rather have more basic cars that can be modified for the job. We don't need yet another variation of Mustang that is pre-modified to do only one thing. I'd love to have a base, non-M E30 rather than the Formula Drift version with cut up body panels. It's more fun to make it mine on my own than to buy someone else's version of it.

I would love to see more of the All Star pack type cars. I love IMSA and WEC and would love to see more in FH4....hell I'd love to see more in FM7....they have a good selection there but so many more they could add.

Not sure that drifting is really a 'huge and active part of Forza'. Sure there are lots of people that enjoy drifting .... I won't question that. But I am a member of several fairly large Discord communities all with hundreds of members. Drifting is rarely mentioned or discussed or an in-demand thing to do in any of those communities.

Jesus christ, it's been half a day since I visited this thread, and most of the replies here resemble kids stamping their feet because their parents didn't get them the toys they wanted.

Some of this Forza Community never fails to impress.

It's a fairly active part of Forza. There are many Discord communities out there that consist of drifters. I'm always seeing numerous people chuck skids up and down the Fortune Island switchback.

Yeah, but how many players in game. Also am sure between those communities their is common overlap of the same people. I just go by what I observe in game. I see a lot of people using hoon and formula drift cars and drifting all over. More likely to see somebody drifting than speeding down the highway. I am betting if the analytics were checked, drifting is not a chunk of populous to be ignored.

Edit: Numbers we do have, More drifting discussions than club or racer lounges.

Drift cars are useless in Forza Horizon outside of drift zones. They're bad to race with and even worse to cruise in.

In Forza Motorsport, drifting is still niche. There's races with buggies in the career mode, but not drifting. Vast majority of Rivals events/Leagues/hoppers are road racing. Yet T10 keeps forcing people to run drift events to fulfill Forzathon requirements.

I do not understand this direction from the Forza franchise.

I've seen this but I suspect it has more to do with there being less lobbies allocated to the expansion, which jumbles people together.

Casual players hunting for achievements also tend to be far less skilled at drifting and don't seem as interested in it as they are in racing, cruising and earning achievements.

I've had fun in races restricted to Formula Drift cars. Indeed, when I want to grind for skill points without feeling like I'm grinding for skill points I like to do 25 lap Formula Drift races. I didn't think I'd have any more use for that pack than the worthless All Stars pack in FH3, but I've actually found a use for it.

Not against more drift machines, but real kick between legs is that game from 2008 had more drifting related events (where these vehicles could be used) than FH4.

Doesn't just need to be supercars. I'll take normal everyday cars too. The Z and Prelude are good. "Boring" sedans are fine too just real production vehicles or racing vehicles from some other league.

I actually don't mind this because I'm not a fan of drifting but it forces me to do it and get better at it. If I don't want to then just won't do the seasonal and get the wheelspin. A thing I like about weekly challenges and seasonals is they force me to use game modes and cars that I wouldn't otherwise use like the '69 Camaro. Or the seasonals will narrow down classes and then I'll try to use and tune a car I haven't used yet. I don't do much MP so playground games had not touched until they became seasonals. They have been a fun diversion.

Sure, I do love the normal sedans and, maybe wagons, as well. However Forza Horizon 4 is lack of some key sports cars/supercars from the get-go, say, 488 Pista/Huracan Performante/McLaren 675LT. They have been out for years and frankly, FH4 is a car-oriented game and it is about speed, right?

The game is lacking way more non-supercars than supercars. There's not a single kei car in it, for example. Who said FH4 is about speed?

Oh look: A third Gen 6 Drift Mustang, what surprise...
We already do have a pre-facelift drift Mustang in the game (Formula Drift) and a facelift drift Mustang (Deberti). Why does anyone think "Hey! We need another drift Mustang!"?
It´s okay that some FD and Hoonigan cars are part of Forza, but Forza is a game in which you can build literally hundreds of amazing and unique drift cars by yourself. In my opinion, this is a waste of development ressources that could have gone into other cars, like the ever since FH2 requested 675LT (speaking of the "long-term partnership" with McLaren...). What scares me the most is that there is a chance that we will see a teaser for the next expansion and they chose a drift car as the thumbnail for the stream. Please, do not give us another drift expansion. The last expansion that was actually useful for me as a street racer was the Porsche Expansion back in FH2, and that didn´t even include a map expansion.

FH is about cars in general - not just the newest supercars. While I agree that they went a little too far with the countless Hoonigan/Gymkhana cars which are barely more than a livery swap, there are people who like them. And that's perfectly fine. The same goes for drift cars. I couldn't care less about them but the game isn't tailored specific to my liking and neither has to.

I've been "asking" for exotic retro sports/supercars for ages without much success. What would I give for 90's TVR like the Griffith or Cerbera, Lister Storm V12, Ford GT90, Dodge Copperhead, Vector W8 or M12, Cizeta V16T (optically very similiar to the Diablo but with a V16 engine!), Spyker C8, VW Nardó W12 or my beloved Venturis (400GT and 300 atlantique).

Everyone has their own desires & wishes and it's impossible to please everyone's. I've been waiting since Gran Turismo 2 for a return of a Venturi - 20 years without success :(

Venturi Atlantique 300 and 400? Vector W8 and M12? Gran Turismo 2!? Oh Man, now I have an absolutely insatiable Urge to get My PSX back out of the Attic! Back when Games were a "Product" and not a "Service" , and "Live Services" are something which is absolutely Ruining Gaming right now, meaning I really want them to just go back to being Products like GT2 was.

its Nice to know I am not the Only Clapped Out Old Wreck of a Classic Gamer on these Forums :)
