SERIES 14 UPDATE
Update for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
To be released on 24th September 2019.

NEW FEATURES
Route Blueprint Improvements
This update adds new editing tools to Route Blueprint, to allow you to better edit and tweak your Routes after testing them, and before saving them. After having tested a Route with one or more checkpoint, you will be able to enter Checkpoint Editor mode. In this mode you can:
• Jump to any checkpoint in your route and edit their width and placement
• Completely redraw your route from any checkpoint, including changing the endpoint
• Convert a circuit race to a point-to-point, or vice-versa

New Achievements
This update adds 11 new Achievements, worth 250 GamerScore. Earn these by completing recently-added Horizon Stories, and certain activities in Festival Playlist. These new Achievements are retroactively unlocked if you would already have completed them.

Sell Duplicate Cars in WheelSpin
This update adds the ability to sell duplicate cars won in Horizon WheelSpin and Super WheelSpin, for 50% of the base value.

Improved Search Functionality for Event Blueprints
This update adds a number of new ways to search for Event Blueprints through the Creative Hub tab in the Pause Menu. You can now search for Event Blueprints that feature specific Car Themes, like Modern Muscle, specific Car Classes, like S2, or even routes that feature a specific Starting Location, like Tarn Hows. You can also filter by Route Length and Circuit type.

Direct Share Code for Event Blueprints
This update adds 9-digit Share Codes to all Event Blueprints, view them by pressing the Right Stick while browsing Event Blueprints in the Pause Menu, Event Activations, or Creative Hub. You can use this code to get to a specific Event Blueprint quickly, and easily.

New Showcase Remix – A Contest of Giants
Go toe-to-toe with Horizon’s hovercraft pilot once more! In this new Showcase Remix, you’ll be driving the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 during a spring downpour. Come hill or high water, prove once again that traction is king! Complete the regular version of The Behemoth Showcase first to unlock the remixed version.

Showcase Remix – Night Flight
Relive those 80s synth vibes by racing a jet-black plane, in a jet-black Lamborghini on a warm summer’s night! Be sure to complete the regular version of The Delta-Wing Showcase first to unlock the remix, and make progress towards your Showman Star Card.


Cross-Platform Fixes
• Fixed an issue where the distance traveled stat was not updating correctly
• Fixed an issue where Showcases won stat was not updating correctly in Star Card. You will need to go and re-race the showcase events to get the stat to increase correctly.
• Fixed an issue where players could get stuck on the Festival Playlist screen when first reaching the Horizon Roster
• Fixed an issue where the Player Houses stat would not update correctly
• Fixed a livery issue on the Austin Taxi which would cause some decals to invert or disappear
• Various stability and performance improvements


Festival Playlist Score Fix
The issue which was affecting some Festival Playlist scores not being correct can be fixed with these steps.
• Open Festival Playlist
• View History
• Select Series in question
• Exit festival playlist
• Re-enter festival playlist to trigger missed rewards

PC Fixes
Fixed a memory leak that could occur in replay mode, post-race

Xbox Fixes
No Xbox-Specific Fixes

I see Sonic. I see a birthday cake and balloons, probably ties to the 1 year since the release and possibly a new barn find....

Well, in the upper left you see two (duplicate) cars pointing to a bag of CR... Credits for duplicate cars?
The one year Birthday Cake appears obvious... but then again, is anything obvious?
19 Spider at the Top Center... Hmmm Fiat or Alfa Romeo?
A Fish with a long tail… Fishtail?
An Eighteen Wheeler with a big X through it... Getting rid of Trucks?
Sonic... Perhaps an expansion? Or maybe it's just a bad hair day...

I see people working real hard to take care of the high volume of submitted tickets for issues that have been lingering since the game lauched almost a year ago and have been pretty much ignored.

Killjoy...

Actually, if you look at the center screen on the desk, it looks like he's working on the engine sound files.

I recognize the building on the left monitor. I've spotted it in-game a few times, and it looks like some kind of mechanics shop, and the road along side of it is lined with Horizon flags. It looked like either planned content that got cut, or something they were planning on doing in the future, like maybe a new business or something. Maybe we'll finally find out.

Agree it looks like being able to trade/give back duplicate cars for credits. What else....?

  • possibly another 250 Gamerscore to take the total for FH4 to 2750.
  • a longtail car (Mclaren?)
  • "... the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes...". Ok, I get the reference, I just don't know what it means here :)
  • then there's all the route blueprint checkpoint editor stuff trailed in the last update live stream


The balloons? No idea.

My interpretation of this week's #TorbenTuesday:

Top left slot machine and cars = duplicate cars won in Wheelspins can be quicksold for credits

2750 = new total GamerScore, adding achievements worth 250 more GS (FH4 currently has 2500 total GS including both expansions)

Cake = possibly a new Citroën and/or DS car(s), but being a cake, it's not trustworthy: it could also be a lie. Citroën is celebrating its 100 years, but to be nitpicking, its 100th birthday was a few months ago, celebrated in July 19-21. The Citroën 19_19 Concept could be involved, but I don't want to believe. The Citroën Survolt, later DS Survolt, is an older, and far more interesting and better looking concept car. Cars from the past could involve things like the 1934 Citroën Light 15 ‘Traction Avant’ and the 1955 Citroën DS. It is significant that Citroën is the only car make that seems to be directly referenced

Spider 19 = a new spider from this year is coming to the game, I'd say the 2019 McLaren 720S Spider could be one. Alternatively, if we're supposed to pay attention to Sonic, the new McLaren Speedster could be involved. The 600LT Spider also exists

Truck = as the meme goes: "The internet is not a big truck, it's a series of tubes!" The web may be referencing the internet. The trailer is not crossed out, as the trailer is not a big truck either, so maybe they are going to show us some new trailer. But why talk about the internet, again? Maybe there are some updates to Online Adventure

Fish = it has a long tail. You know what else has a long tail? Several McLaren models, called LT (LongTail). The most likely candidate being the 600LT. I was thinking that the Speedtail could also work as a very nice and very powerful anniversary car after the Senna: it has the perfect release date for the job. Or else, the old 675LT. Last we shall name the excessively new 750LT. The first longtails were F1 GTRs from 1997, speaking of GTRs, a Senna GTR would be a fine addition to the game. Unfortunately the fish is starting look more and more like a red herring. Another lie, possibly bigger than the cake itself. If it's a lie we don't get any Longtail... The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ also happens to be a longtail version of the Chiron

Track and sorrounding text = updates to both the Route Creator and the Custom Blueprint search engine, which are coming to Series 14, as in this very update

Balloons = FH4 was released 28 September 2018 for Ultimate Edition players, and 2 October for the rest, this month's livestream is celebrating the game's anniversary, hopefully with cake, of the non-lie variety

Left and center monitor = a formerly unused building, it's not shaped like a barn; since it is furnished like a garage, it could work as a new house or as the base of operations of a new story. Or business. You know who else does stuff in garages and recently made a video advertising FH4? Ken Block with Hoonigan... If Hoonigan is involved in this update or whichever next, until a Gymkhana 11 happens, Ken Block's 1994 Ford Escort Cosworth WRC Cossie V2 and the 2017 SVC Offroad Ford F-150 Raptor seem to be the cars most likely to be added to the game to me.

Right monitor = I have a very vague gut feeling featuring either some Online Adventure updates or Vector Motors, I'm the least confident about this prediction

Update 1: looks like the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Pre Runner Deberti Design is coming to the game.

Update 2: and the 2019 McLaren 600LT Coupé, as I predicted.

More achievements sounds good to me. I like the McLaren LT suggestions as well. Not sure what updates can be done to online adventure but maybe its something positive cause its hell to win consistently. Win 1 room, lose 3 cause of beginners

Maybe this cake isn't a lie :-P It has a one candle, so maybe that's reference to anniversary and balloons might reference to festival / festival area, Horizon balloons?

Came also to think of Showcase from FH2 which was a race against balloons (and it was actually quite good).

Here is my guess:

1. McLaren 600LT Spider
2. Return Credits for Wheelspins (Duplicated Car)
3. Modify Checkpoints in Blueprint Creator (Hinted in Last Live Stream).
4. On subject of Blueprint Creator, allowing creator to pick start point? Hence reference to GUID Mod, thus adding a new tab in home menu for blueprint races, which includes the Start Point for said Blueprint race. The theory being, that the length of each car in the grind decides if the start point is valid and there are no cars starting in a weird and wonderful place?
5. 2019 Chevrolet Sonic
6. Birthday Celebration Outfit
7. New Story (Was announced a few live streams back quickly)
8. Sound Fixes to Engines
9. Normal bug fixes etc.

I think BabySeal363 has a lot of good guesses there. Also, for the last few weeks, Forza Street has been having a McLaren event - after last season being "Porsche Season" in FH4, could this season be McLaren Season?

I'm not holding my breath on this one, but I hope so. We desperately need some audio fixes. So many cockpit views are just wrong.

Not if they don't want cheaters to unlock the achievement for completing it before we're done with our 5th Showcase Remix - seems fairly obvious to me. And they wouldn't add an Xbox achievement if it is impossible to unlock: people without the expansions need another story to be added to the mainland, speaking of which, I had already predicted long ago that a new story is coming in this very update. I always regarded the Star Card as an unfinished feature... until this Series 14 update.

Anyway, challenge accepted, let's find out the hard way.

EDIT: after calling my interpretation "interesting" in the Discord (she did the same thing with the previous #TorbenTuesday where I was able to foretell 5 out of the 6 new cars when people were still denying that it was Porsche month), RetroKrystal said a few words that I believe should be shared with you guys:

Can we fit both new Ferrari Spiders (812 GTS and F8 Spider) in the hints?
Like 'Sonic is superfast, we are getting the spider version of the superfast' :D

My common response of "interesting" is used as I never want to totally say Yes or No to everything.

It'll ruin any surprises or the focus of TorbenTuesday and where's the fun in that!

My guess:

- Gotta Go Fast, 19, Spider : Ferrari 812 GTS (Ferrari 812 Superfast spider version). The FH4 car pass included many hypercar convertibles. I think this hint is a new convertible variant. It doesn't matter whether you like it or not.

- Long-tail fish : McLaren Speedtail or McLaren 675LT : This illustration is a fish, not a whale. That is not Porsche 935. And the fish in this illustration is very simple and doesn't look like a particular fish. In other words, it's not a car with a fish name like Barracuda. As a result of guessing based on these, a car with "tail" in the car name and a long rear end. I guess it's Speedtail or 675LT.

-250/2750 : New achievements. (250 gamer score)

- Open warehouse : A new Horizon Story. This warehouse is already on the main map. Unlike other warehouses, this warehouse has an open door and a Horizon flags around it. There are many maintenance tools in the warehouse, such as engine cranes, tool boxes, and car jacks. I speculate that this warehouse will be used in the new Horizon Story and that it is a motor sports style event like Horizon Rally.

- Cars and money bags : New selling features added. For example, the sale of a car from a wheel spin, or the sale of a car from a garage.

- A series of tubes : Netcode improvements.

- Course map : Improved route creator or improved custom event search system.

- Balloons with numbers "2" and "28", and birthday cake : release date and 1st anniversary of Ultimate Edition and Regular Edition. Something special may happen on this day.

Bad news: the fish is starting to look more and more like a red herring. If that's the case, no Longtail.
