Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Spring Tide

February has graced us with its presence, and has also brought along a new Spring season for Forza Horizon 4. We’re into the closing stage of Series 57, with one more week of cars to win and events to complete before the next series arrives.

American muscle is the majority prize theme for this week, plus another duo of rewards up for grabs for completing both 50% and 80% objectives for the seasonal playlist


Playlist completion prizes are on the light side this week, but you can live out your fantasy of pretending to be a police officer with the Patrol Outfit for your avatar wardrobe. Those looking for cars at the festival can also pick up a new Horizon Backstage Pass.

Wrapping up the Photo Challenges for Series 57 is #OneGiantLeap. This one wants you to take any Extreme Offroad Car and snap it while jumping from the Danger Sign at The Great Ridge. Spring championship races are themed around battles, with prizes including the Chevrolet Chevelle and BMW M5 Forza Edition.

A particular highlight of the prize pool comes from the 2018 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5. Normally, a standard Mustang GT is a very competent muscle car, but Vaughn Gitten Jr’s RTR skunkworks decided that was not enough. RTR fitted the Mustang with a custom widebody to give an even more aggressive stance. The suspension has also received major upgrades to boost handling and also perform big drifts.

Its 5.0-liter Coyote V8 remains untouched and still develops a healthy 460hp, but the handling changes now turn it into a machine that can devour corners.

You’ll need to take victory in the “Mustang vs Mustang” championship to bring home the RTR.

Another Showcase Remix returns to help wrap up the Playlist events. “Commuter Blues” puts you into a Porsche Macan for a race to Edinburgh against the Flying Scotsman.

Super7 is still open and ready for any challengers to take on its unpredictable events. Complete each of the seven cards and you’ll win an Alien Morph Suit.

Forzathon Events

This week sees Forzathon put its focus towards one of Japan’s greatest ever cars: the venerable 2017 Nissan GT-R. Climb aboard this twin-turbocharged techno-wizard to get rolling.

Up next, put the GT-R through a very stern test as you’ll need to win a Road Racing Series circuit event at the punishing Goliath. After that, go into battle against the GT-R’s high-tech four-wheel drive system and earn 3 Drift Tap skills while performing slides.

Last but not least, put the hammer down through traffic to gain a total of 3 Daredevil skills.

Forzathon Shop

Toyota and Aston Martin are the stars of the Forzathon shop in Spring, with the 1992 Toyota Supra 2.0 GT standing on the main stage.

The third generation A70 Supra is a significant step in the models legacy, as it was the first to carry the Supra name on its own after splitting from the Celica, and forging a path as a sporting grand tourer. Under the skin sits a 2.0-liter, twin-turbocharged straight six making a respectable 206hp, but with some tweaks, you can unleash serious supercar killing performance.

At 599 Forzathon Points, the Supra may seem expensive, but the A70 is arguably seen as a cooler choice compared to the more popular A80.

Those looking to discard GT luxury for ultimate performance can look to the 2017 Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro.

The standard Vulcan is already an insane machine, but the AMR Pro takes its track performance up another gear. The AMR Pro package is offered as an upgrade to standard Vulcan owners and primarily focuses on downforce. Most notable is the addition of front diveplanes and a modified rear wing. Gear ratios are also slightly reduced to allow better acceleration.

Its centerpiece 7.0-liter V12 remains untouched, meaning there’s 820hp to play with and a sound that can be heard across the Scottish Highlands.

The Vulcan AMR will also cost you a hefty 599 FP, with an even more enhanced handling experience being offered in return compared to the standard car.

Avatar wardrobe items for this week are the Spring Sweater and the Sapphire Crown.
