So the following image was dropped into Twitter and Discord hinting at possible updates that may be coming in Series 11....



Potential Hints:

1. The updated intro sequence, where when you boot the game on a new account it now gives you an option to go straight to LEGO Valley or to do the traditional introduction. Boot Game --> Initial Drive (Four Seasons) --> Select your first car (Focus, Audi, Dodge) --> Traditional Route -OR- LEGO Route.... taking the LEGO route automatically unlocks all the intro races, the stunt story and your first house on the mainland once you travel back from LEGO Valley also lets you jump right into Online play quicker. (This update already went live a couple days ago).



In-Game Screenshot of Selection Screen:


2. Star Card Rewards: It appears as though we may possibly be getting rewards for completing star cards. It would appear that the Explorer Superstar might give the Viking Helmet (or costume), Racing Superstar may give a LEGO helmet, Superstar Creator maybe duck costume???, Horizon Story Superstar a Ferrari 812?, Online Adventure Superstar orange duck costume??, and a Rip Rod for Stunt Superstar or Prestige level (the icon is shown as a star instead of a helmet...)? And finally one big giant surprise reward for completing all six.



3. Update to Forzathon Shop Cost. They have drawn a Supply and Demand curve. This indicates the Price, Quantity, Supply and Demand effect on obtaining Market Equilibrium. They may be trying to update how to price Forzathon Shop items based on the demand for an item and the supply of said item (quantity available in game).



There were also other images that may point to things: A flatbed truck on the desktop wallpaper (maybe released in addition to the Trak-Tor), a drawing of a race route with 4 checkpoints and a straight line indicating possible duration of the event (or maybe its like some kind of quadatholon event: 1 road race, 1 dirt race, 1 x-country and 1 drag race where you get to select a different vehicle for each), some Sony headphones (poor marketing, should have been xbox manufactured headphones...), at least the keyboard was Microsoft ;p

Yet another reward that requires drifting.

No matter how many times you try to get us to do it, PG, drifting is still about as fun as a trip to the BMV.

Stop. Just stop.

If you look closely enough, it's also confirms the moon landing was faked.

Very close - One of the three things in the original post is incorrectly.

Don't listen to him ↑
Losing traction and controlling it while cornering is fun, just don't call it drifting, call it power sliding and enjoy the rewards if it helps.
For me its the best part of the game.

Kudos to Jadigafer7 for the great detective work.

Wow, not a lego toy to be seen on that desk. I guess the Devs are too mature to play with kids toys.

Luckily I already have 2 812's so I don't have to do any drifting, if that's the reward.

Will you tell us what the equilibrium graph was for in the stream, or would that involve a NDA violation?

Wow, based on that picture? I can kind of make out the Rip Rod, but Ferrari 812? I don't see it...

Is anyone else's Star Card challenges not completing? I had problems with the PR Stunt tab not syncing although I already 3 starred everything. To work around that I had to set new PB's in order for it to refresh itself. The Explorer tab was stuck on bonus boards and road discovery, although already completed. When it finally gradually updated on it's own accord it unlocked the flair but I still cannot select it. I don't understand what the problem is, but this is annoying.

Based on RetroKrystal confirming that only 1 of the 3 deductions is incorrect I would assume my hypothesis on the Forzathon Shop price is the one that is wrong. In previous #TorbenTuesday update hints they have placed many depictions of graphs that were just in there for misleading information. I know for a fact the first hint is correct. The second hint regarding star card rewards just makes a lot of sense to fulfill the wishes of many that "ultra-rare" exclusive cars not be locked behind time-gated content. So by placing two of the rarest cars behind a task a user can attempt to accomplish whenever they want (and in Solo mode), only makes sense. It also keeps the challenge of obtaining these cars somewhat of a challenge (depending on an individuals ability to accomplish the required tasks). It also serves as a marketing tactic as to accomplish the Horizon Story Superstar card it requires Fortune Island AND LEGO Valley be owned and played by users. And for a whiteboard drawing it seems close enough to an 812.... but then again it kinda looks like any other Ferrari.... just makes the most sense to me to be the 812, so that people stop asking about it over and over again.

We'll try and explain everything in stream. There's a few things people haven't picked up on yet

Based on what has happened so far that becomes the most likely answer.

Maybe the "traffic-only" flatbed is connected with the second next #Forzathon, which at least for now seems centered on the Mercedes racing truck, in a heavyweight-intensive week - if not entire update, depending on how one should interpret the two British, tractor-themed tweets by @ForzaMotorsport...

The latest features the familiar "traffic-only tractor" in Horizon 4's countryside:

https://twitter.com/Forz...atus/1143885331332313089

The previous shows the Top Gear Track-tor, a newcomer to the Forza franchise:

https://twitter.com/Forz...atus/1143151597436002304

So my reading is that on one hand we can see a "traffic-only vehicle" pattern (an unusual way to get people hyped), and on the other a "heavyweight" one, and there is overlap between the two.

More interesting info from Discord via RetroKrystal..... Hint at "confirmation?" that more info (or the car itself) for the LEGO Barn Find will be revealed in the Series 11 Update and "confirmation?" that we will be getting more LEGO Speed Champion cars released.... (Personally, I still believe we will get AT LEAST 10 total LEGO DLC cars released when all is said and done).
