Hopefully I'll also manage it too when it goes live in here in the UK tomorrow @ 15:30 and I can have a go.

It's gonna be a long 14.5 hour wait, I can tell you!

I like the Macan, and I like the new model so I welcome it. But I find the fact they hid it and made it out to be such an impressive thing is a let down. If it swapped places with the 917LH, then I'd understand, but at the end of the day, a Macan isn't the most exciting car going.

Yep can't complain about this part of the update. I don't know what sort of number crunching they did but I'm 5 from 10 in TA (3804 pts) and 5 from 10 in FFA (3910 pts). Not showing on the leaderboards tho until I get round to doing a ranked again. Last few months only been doing 1 ranked FFA for the festival playlist. Stick to unranked now more time spent racing.

It should be active now in the UK - it’s immediate when the update is downloaded. Go check your ranked screen.

Looks like there was probably an Embargo or something similar as searching the Internet for the real Macan Turbo 2019 pretty much all the major motoring websites have only reported it since about 6pm GMT Wednesday. So looks like Porsche have only just announced it from the looks of it.

That's some serious cash you've accumulated there. I mean I'm half way through prestige level 5, play pretty much every day since early access and have less than £100mil. Suppose if I could be bothered to use up the hundreds of wheelspins I've got that would bump it up a bit but nowhere near £733mil.

Did this update seem to make anyone else's game unplayable? Mine downloaded it today, and now my game randomly kicks you out of you Horizon Life session, and after a few minutes will even completely log off my profile.

Okay so I did some calculations, Teams and FFA jumped about 1400 and PG teams jumped 1900. Drift moved up roughly 1000

I think what happens is they title the car based on the the license which is tied to manufacture or registration date, which is why we see 2019 in game. But going by the engine specs the Macan is indeed the 2020 MY officially announced by Porsche today.



I went back and revised the first post with the cars, livestream summary, and article/release notes, and added a little more car-specific detail in the Car List pinned at the top of the forum.

I haven't played FH4 in a while. Have they made any notable improvements to car sounds? And, has the handling system/physics been improved to make the game less arcadey?

I don't believe so as I have not noticed a difference. Honestly it doesn't bother me. Also don't think the physics feel "arcadey" whatsoever. I mean have you played games like Need For Speed? that's arcadey.

I went to play online ranked race just to count my league rank 10, I came first in the end and when I updated the standings again the game showed me that I am in league 6.

I had 2527 league points, I went to 3644 points, but when I go to the leaderboard the game still warns that I'm in league 10 with 2527 points, did anyone else happen?

I played a few races after that to see if it was right and so far nothing, and for a change I took a disconnect and lost 24 points, and it was going to end the championship in second place, thank you very much, but I won't be complaining too much, because now it's It is much easier to earn league points, it is much fairer, it is even fun to play ranked.

I have been quite lucky, I guess, when it comes to the drive distance bug. Last week was the only time I have had issues with it (It only registered about half of the miles I drove). No problem this week.

Playground live in their La La Land where everyone thinks their game is flawless and adores the Trials as well as the increasing number of exclusive cars, which are a hair away from 100 right now. The simple requirement to win Trials to earn the cars, taking into account Xbox One owners must pay for Xbox Live Gold whereas Windows 10 users don't, is an insult to the console fanbase that effectively made Playground into the respected studio they currently are.

That's not to mention how the whole "exclusive cars" thing was hated upon in FM7 and the sheer amount of them moves FH4 closer to F2P territory. The cars may not cost real money but some of them take a long time to get if you miss them, especially taking into account the game's economy is broken, and they're often cars that didn't need to be exclusive.

If I could hazard a guess, ramps and walls were requested from day one, that is, last year, when the route creator was first introduced. It took them almost a year to add a very basic editing feature to the custom routes, which doesn't even work in completed ones. Efforts like paintable brake calipers are abandoned in favor of milking the game dry with the Playlist. I feel very disappointed when Forza forces the Playlist on me while Gran Turismo gives away cars and tracks every month.

In fact, I feel disappointed seeing how many of these cars were tested in FM7 yet weren't made available for that game in the first place!

Seriously, I wouldn't post these things if I didn't care. I'll complete a full year of playing FH4 next month and I like the game a lot, but I feel very sad when I see the devs are clueless as to what people want. It's as if Playground wanted to justify whatever they do with the game by keeping the underage kids and the ***.-kissers close on Discord and creating this illusion that, as the Lego song says, "EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!" When it isn't! Anything bad about this game is swept under the rug on the streams.

It's very difficult to understand why things are like this when Phil Spencer's ideals when it comes to the Xbox brand are pretty much the opposite of it. Community engagement is not just hosting a funny show and keeping a group of blind followers around, it's getting the hands dirty and maybe talking to people you know will challenge you with uncomfortable questions. Both T10 and PG got the memo but only the former decided to follow it.
