Forza Horizon 4 | Series 12 Update
Staff
Tuesday, July 30, 2019

The Series 12 update for Forza Horizon 4 is here! For this series, we’ve got a new barn find car, a pair of new Showcase Remix events, and more quality of life features and fixes. For the full rundown on all the new features, check out the story below or watch the full replay of this week’s Series 12 livestream from Playgroutnd Games’ HQ.



The Series 12 update starts with a pair of Showcase Remix events:

New Showcase Remix – Assault on the Control Room
The Halo Experience Showcase returns from Series 7 in this remix! Don’t miss this opportunity to re-run the UNSC Fleetcom training exercise in the winter season, as it counts towards your Star Card progress as a Racing Superstar.

New Showcase Remix – Superfast vs. Supersonic
A brand-new remix of the Delta-Wing Showcase, this time featuring the highly-coveted 2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast going head-to-head against the infamous jet pilot on a balmy spring morning. Remember: You need to complete the regular version of the Showcase first to unlock the remixed version.

LEGO Speed Champions Barn Find
Good news, the instructions for a new barn find have been uncovered and (spoiler alert!) that new barn find car is the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0.




In addition to the above, Series 12 introduces some important improvements to the game, including:

· Fixed an issue with the stat for number of cars in garage not updating correctly after a wheelspin
· Fixed an issue with players not being awarded credits at the end of a game of Infected
· Fixed an intermittent issue with player Ghosts not driving in Class Based Rivals
· Fixed an issue where players were not automatically entering a PvP event after creating one
· Fixed an issue with the stat for Trial Championships entered not being updated correctly
· Fixed an issue with Seasonal Trailblazers having the wrong map icon
· Fixed an issue where players were able to drive under water in certain conditions
· Various stability and performance improvements

Series 12 Reward Cars
As always, the events across the four seasons of Series 12 will bring plenty of reward cars to collect and enjoy. Four of the cars are new, including two Aston Martin models (the 2019 DBS Superleggera and the 2017 Vanquish Zagato Coupé) and a pair of Volkswagens, including the 1967 Karmann Ghia and the 1967 Type 3 “Notchback” 1600L.

Some questions answered:

Barn Find revealed as the Porsche 911 Turbo.
Garage limits touch on game saves so approaching changes is looked at very carefully.
No immediate plans to change Drifting features or scoring.
Selling duplicate cars from wheelspins - this is complicated due to scenarios where spins interrupt live events, so this is being considered for the future.
Body kits - in the works but no info right now.
Decals, smoke color - to do this would require everyone to redownload all the cars, so it’s unlikely these features will happen.

Nothing about the Track-Tor and I am sure they took notice of the issue/complaints.
So, seems we have to live with this **** as we have with the Boneshaker.

I can't believe, after 12 updates, twelve, still no Ferraris/Lambos last models, which actually people really want for ages!

so no Portofino, no 488 Pista, no Performante/EVO, S/SVJ etc

and there is already a new replacement for 488, the F8 Tributo.., not to mention other ferraris.

Also since game release, not a single new Audi, even the Audi Q7 V12 TDi from FMS7, a game it shares content

what a disappointment!

That Track-tor is a much bigger problem than the Hot Wheels car. They didnt mention anything about your car being stuck in the ground after taking a jump. Hopefully they just fixed it cause that ruins cross country and freeroam events if your wheels disappear in the ground and you start scrapping/screeching to a stop
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track. 🏁🏁

FH4 and I have a volatile love/hate relationship 😑

Hopefully FH5 will treat me better 😬😬

On the good side they finally give us some Showcase Remix events, "only" 2 months after the introduction of the Star Card feature.

Also good to know what the Lego barn find is, but honestly how many people still care about Lego Valley?
Most people I played with got bored quickly (8-10h). There is just no reason to return there once you've completed everything.
No Multiplayer, not even Playground Games. If you want to go for the Seasonal Events there, you're gonna have a bad time, too because it's hard to find other players for coop.

The worst part is that they still didn't change a thing about ranked or multiplayer in general.
OP cars remain in the lobbies, dirty driving is still rewarded (not even a single word about a penalty system or something).
I guess getting crashed off the track in every 2nd race is a nice experience, good fun.
They didn't even mention these things, despite the huge 60+ pages thread here in the forum.

Instead of endlessly fussing about UI issues around selling duplicates, why not just eliminate autoshow duplicates from wheelspins? No UI changes needed, just internal wheelspin code.

OP cars will remain no matter what they do. Remove one, it's runner up replaces it. They even could go the GT Sport/iRacing/Project CARS route and balance all the cars, and 1 or 2 cars would still be marginally if not noticeably better.

I guess being able to filter cars that are "New" could also help with that.

I’m not sure I followed the reasoning why they can’t add a duplicate car removal system in the WS. It seemed to be based on other players having to wait whilst you decide. However, neither the trial nor ranked allow WSs until after the event has finished, so what events are affected? Also, surely that would already be the case if so as I’m sure that there is an “accept” requirement which requires a button press?

So in other words, if you don't do Adventure, no Capri FE for you.

Why, PG? Why this repetitive obsession with herding people towards modes they have no interest in playing?

Just. Give. It. Up. Already.

I actually don't much care for wheelspins getting spun automatically between events, so maybe they could just let us bank it with all the other waiting wheelspins to spin at our leisure.

I totally agree, Apple Slipper. There are many non-S2/X class non-super/hyper cars out there that could be used.

It may be hard for some to believe, but not everyone is infatuated with those cars. Personally, those are my least favorite cars and only use them when necessary for an achievement or task.

but i do, same as OLD cars to be clear, and millions of forza's fanbase want these cars too

some of then are the most requested cars by far, very far...

Delorean stay in the top 3 since forever, where's the car? PG don't listen the community, it's a fact!


even The Crew 2 have Pista and Performante

PG missing the oportunity to make more money with DLCs or whatever, i don't care, i just want really new cars

And I want to be bombarded with supercars as well.

In the last 3 series, we've had the Apollo IE, Rimac C Two, and Koengigsegg CCX. That's not a lot.

Personally, I'm tired of trucks and offroad stuff. Everyone's different right?

It IS getting a bit tiresome to get the same older stuff over and over, but not get the newer models from various car manufacturers. When they brought in the Aventador J (which make no mistake, I'm glad to have back) it was a car we've already seen all the way back in FH1. Current stuff too please?

In addition to the current stuff from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, etc... it would be really nice to have a Pagani Zonda C12 and Pagani Zonda F too. We have a lot of 'old' cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Koenigsegg and even Bugatti, but we do not have the early models from Pagani yet.

I'm not even a truck fan in real life but I'd like some more trucks added to the game that can be used in cross country. There's a ton of trucks out there that SHOULD be added to the game. The Q7 is one that came to mind, a Nissan Juke or the real Titan, not the Titan concept. I've seen a few new Silverados where I live. I'd welcome those also

Oh, you mean pickup tricks like the Offroad category. Had me going for a second there. i thought you were actually asking for another blasted racing truck like the Iron Knight.

Ok, then. Carry on.
