Forza Horizon 4 is Turning Japanese With This Week’s New Car Pass Cars

Forza Horizon 4 47 October 5, 2018 by

The leaves have changed in Forza Horizon 4, and that means something else for Car Pass holders: two new cars to beat autumn with.

Playground Games has changed up its approach to post-launch support with this game. Instead of the typical monthly car packs, Horizon 4 instead delivers a different pair of cars each week. Last week saw the first two show up. The Koenigsegg Agera RS couldn’t be more different from the 1962 Triumph TR3B Playground paired it with. This week, the cars at least both hail from the same country.

Up first is the older of the two. It’s a model that needs little introduction however, as the final form of a beloved rotary-powered nameplate. Yes, the 2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A has landed in Horizon. Long-time players will remember this car isn’t exactly new to the overall Forza franchise, however. It last appeared in the other fourth installment — Forza Motorsport 4 — way back in 2011.

The other new ride is a much newer option, in the form of the 2018 Nissan Sentra NISMO. Power comes courtesy of Nissan’s familiar 1.6-liter turbo, the same one that sat under the Juke NISMO’s challenging front-end. It may only produce 188hp, making it more warm than hot, but the little Nissan is surprisingly agile around Britain’s many winding roads.

Both cars are available through the Car Pass, or can be purchased individually. Players that have the pass will receive 42 cars over a 21-week period.

Forza Horizon 4 launched this past Tuesday (or a week ago for Ultimate Edition owners). It’s attracted over one million players so far, and we rated it quite highly in our GTPlanet review. Be sure to swing by our dedicated Horizon 4 forums for all the latest on the game.
