Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: A Delayed Start to Summer

Forza Horizon 4 11 June 4, 2020 by

As the sun beats down across the UK for a new week in Forza Horizon 4, there is a strange atmosphere for the start of Summer.

Normally fans would be celebrating the beginning of Series 23, however many will be disappointed to discover the latest content has not arrived. The content was under wraps in any case, as Playground Games opted to join a number of brands in staying silent this week, but an unrelated issue has put a damper on the Summer spirit.

An Elephant in The Room

Earlier this week, PG discovered a fault which has lead to the delay in releasing Series 23. A recent post on the Forza Support Twitter account has confirmed that the team was unable to rectify the issue in time for the Summer season.

In order to ensure that the Summer season doesn’t completely go to waste, a full roster of events is still available, but only with in-game credits as prizes. A total of over 750,000 credits are up for grabs across the latest events, along with regular and Super Wheelspins.

Those looking to run the latest Rivals event can step back into the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera around the streets of Edinburgh.

Forzathon Events

Next up, unleash the ferocious power of the W16, and earn 30 Ultimate Speed Skills in order to progress. Afterwards, set those Speed Traps flashing, as you’ll need to earn a total of 12 stars to progress.

Finally, use your creative driving skills to earn 4 Ultimate Skill Chains to finish off this week.

Forzathon Shop

Returning content dominates the Shop this week, with a drop-top Mini leading the way.

The 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Convertible is MINI’s answer to bringing drop-top thrills to the JCW hot hatch. With a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the JCW puts out 228hp. Thanks to an agile chassis, this hot Mini will be a bundle of fun to drive.

If you’re missing a Mini from your collection, then this is one to go for, and it’ll only set you back a measly 100 Forzathon Points.

However if you’re after something with more class, there’s the 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. A luxury grand tourer that can crush long distances in supreme comfort, the DBS is the most powerful front-engined Aston in production. The 5.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 delivers a thumping 715hp. Under the glorious summer sun, the DBS is ready to be unleashed.

You will need to fork out 450FP for the DBS, but one of the best GT cruisers available is nothing to be sniffed at.

Cosmetic items available to purchase include the Skeleton Morph Suit and the Classic Race Helmet.
