FH4 Release Notes: April 8th, 2019

Quote:
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: 1.279.342.2
  • Xbox: 1.279.342.0


New Features

Online Adventure Changes

Online Adventure Championships have been updated:
S2 Class has been removed from Dirt Racing Championships.
B Class has been added to Dirt Racing Championships.
Freeroam Rush events have been removed from all Asphalt and Street Race Championships.
Collisions are disabled for the first 30 seconds of each race. This change also applies to Horizon Life PvP races.

Drift Adventure
An all-new Online Adventure game mode! Take part in three-race Drift Championships, where it’s not about how fast you can drive, it’s about how well you can drift!
Points are scored on asphalt only and are based on the angle and speed of your drift. You’ll have time to complete a few laps in each event, so don’t worry if you mess up the start, you still have every chance to win as only your best lap’s score goes up on the leaderboard.
Drift Adventure is available in both Quick Play and Ranked and can be accessed from the Online Adventure tab in the Pause Menu.
Earning a rank in Drift Adventure will check-off the Online Adventure requirement for Festival Playlist.

Drift Camera
To support the addition of Drift Adventure a new Drift Camera has been added. Enabled in the HUD and Gameplay Settings, Drift Camera adds dynamism to the cockpit camera so that your view pans towards the direction of travel. This means that even when you’re going sideways, you can still see where you’re going. There are an array of settings which allow you to tune the speed and severity of this option.

Showcase Remix
Series 8 introduces the FOREST SPRITE Showcase Remix! For a limited time only, you’ll be able to face-off against the Horizon Motocross team in autumn with a 1958 Austin-Healey Sprite Mk I, modified for off-roading. Remember: You need to complete the regular Showcase first before the remixed version is unlocked.

Barrett-Jackson Cars
The Barrett-Jackson Car Pack is available for separate purchase and is included as a free add-on for players who own the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass. The vehicles of the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack are a veritable “who’s who” of collectible automobiles from decades past. From the hand-built 1932 Ford Custom Double Down to the sleek, race-ready 1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra, these cars have been desired by drivers around the world since their introduction and now is your chance to experience them in Forza Horizon 4.

Cross-Platform Fixes
Fixed issue where opponent drivatars were showing as Level 1 in race results screen.
Changed Seasonal Playground Games to finish when one team reaches three, rather than having to complete all 5 events.
Added the ability to look at previous series in Festival Playlist.
Fixed an issue where turning Player Designs off in HUD and Gameplay options would not work correctly.
Fixed an issue where the ownership of the VIP house would be reset.
Various stability improvements.

PC Fixes
Fixed some instances of Error Code FH001 from happening.
Enabled car telemetry data to be output to external applications and motion sled devices.

Wheel Fixes
Fixed an issue where launching the game and then plugging in a wheel would cause 90 degrees of deadzone.

I am very happy to know that my suggestion to "start a race for 30 seconds ghost" will be included. This will greatly improve the races !!

Kinda figured you guys would put some 100% playlist reward like a t-shirt or credits or something. As long as its not an exclusive car nobody would complain, it's kinda nice to have something small for those who do 100%

Best stream so far, drift adventure look fun and it's great it's have own lobbys at rwd and awd cars. Online is maybe playable next month (even tho all promise that grifing and wallriding is fixed then i only belive that when i see it) no more freeroam rush in asphalt races im very happy abaout that one. Festival playlist dont have any new cars locked behind 80% im very happy abaout that one also. Q&A section on stream was positive suprise.

Only thing that leave bad taste was question abaout rivals mode where answer was pretty mutch only laughing at 30 seconds

Exactly, great changes. Adventure looks promising and separation between drifting and AWD is good!

I would have either:

A- Removed free roam races completely (as they are mostly random, and hurt the experience).

or

B- Only leave it for cross country races (as those are the only ones that actually use... you guessed it, cross country vehicles...)

But now at least i won't see them anymore with cars that belong on the road, plus i'll see them 50% less, so it's a welcome change!.

I wasn't expecting the 30 secs no collisions at start, but i welcome it. Tho i do miss the option to play all the race without collisions..

I support the other changes and add-ons listed here, so those are all ok.
All things considered i'm 50% happier, but hey at least things are going in the right direction!.
