NEW FEATURES

Horizon Backstage
Horizon Backstage is a new feature that offers more choice in collecting exclusive reward cars from the Festival Playlist. See the announcement article and Series 28 livestream for an overview. Here's how it works:

Daily Voting: October 15 - 21
Collecting a Backstage Pass or reward car is not available yet during Spring season in Series 27, but voting is live now. Daily voting (starting each weekday at 7:30am Pacific) between a pair of cars will determine the group of reward car choices in Series 28. Go to the Cars tab of the pause menu and select Horizon Backstage to vote each day.




Earn a Pass, Collect a Car: October 22 - November 19
Once Summer season starts on October 22, head to the Festival Playlist menu where you will see that 50% completion of the Series events will earn a Pass. Completion percentage comes from seasonal events as well as the Monthly Rivals and Online Ranked Adventure qualification. You can see a preview of the Series 28 Festival Playlist in the livestream here. 50% Series completion may take more than one season to reach depending on your play time.

Once you have your Backstage Pass, head to the "H" icon on the map in the Horizon Festival area and enter the Backstage menu where you can use your pass to collect one of the car choices for your garage.

Since the Backstage menu shows a counter for "Your Passes" and you can only earn one pass in Series 28, it appears that you can bank your pass for a future series. Stay tuned for more info from www.twitter.com/ForzaHorizon and the next monthly livestream in November.
(This feature was the 'Wayne's World' clue from #ForbenFriday above).

This update has a truck feel to it so as far as I can tell.

Here is what I am reckoning for Forben Friday

1. GMC Syclone. Why: The Cow has been scooped up by a Tornado, a US Centric Term for a Tornado is a Cyclone... Or Syclone!

2. Fiat 8V Ghia Supersonic. Why: the Eurofighter Typhoon is a "Supersonic" Aircraft.

3. Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6 . Why: The Clip used for the Gif is one of the more Famous Scenes from Jurassic Park to Feature their rather... Scientifically Inaccurate... Portrayal of the Velociraptor.

4. AMC Pacer X. Why: Wayne's World. The Mirthmobile. The Car that turned the Pacer from Lemon to Cult Classic in One Night!

We have the Racemo already.
Forben Friday seems to have.a Pacer from FH3, a new Raptor running board per link above, maybe a Big Block, or agree Shelby Raptor would slay. Maybe a Syclone from FH3, fighter plane no clue until I see the plane

I think it's the Hennessey Velociraptor that was leaked a year ago. The AMC Pacer X and the GMC Syphon are also good guesses since both featured in FH3. Also the Mercury Cyclone Spoiler (also leaked) seems to fit the clues. Will see soon.

I'm not good at guessing games. Those are just my thoughts on some Tweets, I do however see a lot of 6x6 suggestions. Maybe the leaked one was the 6x6?

Yeah I’m talking about how they introduced it. I’m pretty sure it was put into FH3 right after it debuted at some car show.

Watch they bring the Syclone back and then go way back and add the Typhoon from FM4. That’d be something.

The jet is a Eurofighter Typhoon.
Raptor is most likely the 6x6
Rules of troubleshooting:
1) Have you tried turning it off and on again?
2) Is your Internet working?
3) https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status < Check here for service issues.
4) If all else fails open a service ticket and/or forum post.

The Backstage Pass seems like a good idea.
Now it's important that the opportunity to get one is made available on a regular basis, and that it's not made so difficult that it's only available to so-called "hardcore" players, and that the past exclusive car lineup available with the backstage pass is good.
I hope PG runs a good operation, as I think this system will help newbie players and others.

I like the Hang type Activation fix better.
Hope it actually works, so people can finally play the game they bought.

Exactly the same I was thinking. When they started talking about it I thought: finally.. and then it hit me. Such a shame...

Big hype. My wishlisted Velociraptor is coming!

Good to see a rival for the 6x6 Mercedes entering the game.

All in all, awesome update.

The three new cars can also be viewed in the Photo Promotion menu - filter not owned/photo'd.

The latest update appears to have fixed the recent bugs.

I've just been in the game, done a couple of events and taken photos of the 3 new cars. Everything seems to be working perfectly (on a console).

The first time I feel really tempted to do a 'time travel'.

Just kidding...

Edit: Pls PG allow us to swap/remove the light bar on top on the Velociraptor.
