Playground Games has given us a sneak preview of what to expect in the next upcoming update for Forza Horizon 4. In a work-from-home livestream, PG detailed the latest content set to arrive for Series 21, which will drop later this week.
Let’s dive in to what content will be arriving.
New Reward Cars
After Series 20 brought just three cars, Series 21 brings six new cars to Horizon. You can win four monster machines through seasonal unlocks, with an extra two cars up for grabs in a returning feature (more on that later).
At the head of the lineup is the 1992 Toyota Supra 2.0 GT Twin Turbo. The third-generation “A70” variant of Toyota’s iconic sports car was also the first to carry the Supra badge on its own. This particular Supra features a 2.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, straight-six producing just over 200hp. Although the A80 is more universally popular in car culture circles, the A70 is arguably the cooler machine.
If you’re after efficient German brutality, then look no further than the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S. The latest edition of AMG’s big sedan is the most powerful E-Class yet. Under the demure exterior sits the fire-breathing 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, packing 603hp.
In order to claim the scalp of the latest BMW M5, the E63 also features four-wheel drive, turning it into a true all-weather monster.
Drifting fans will get the choice of two new Formula D hooligans; the #117 Ferrari 599 and the #777 Chevrolet Corvette.
The Ferrari is one of the more unusual cars that has been converted into a drift racer. Campaigned by Frederico Sceriffo, the 599 features a wild widebody kit and a pair of superchargers added to the 6.0 liter V12. As a result, this 599 makes over 900hp and should make a valid case as an alternative to the established drift fleet.
Meanwhile the Corvette should satisfy those after more super powered American muscle. Run by Matt Field, the Corvette is more subtle on the outside, but is no less insane. With a supercharged 7.0-liter V8 under the hood, the Corvette makes well in excess of 1000hp.
Those after a grand tourer can look forward to the 2018 Ferrari Portofino. Designed to replace the controversial California T, the Portofino retains a similar silhouette but features much improved mechanicals.
The 3.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 has been tweaked to 592hp, along with an improved 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. If you’re after a Ferrari GT, but find the 812 just too fast, the Portofino should satisfy your cruising needs.
Finally, there’s the Guntherwerks 400R. Although the company is less well-known, what it has done to the 993-generation Porsche 911 is similar to the work done by Singer and Emory.
This resto-modded 993 has been given a thorough makeover, with a wider carbon fiber body and modern suspension upgrades. The engine is thoroughly modern too: a 4.0-liter flat-six with over 400hp. Although it’s based on the 993, Guntherwerks has transformed the car into a modern track weapon.
Horizon Promo Returns
Photographers will be pleased to hear about the return of Horizon Promo to FH4. As with previous Horizon games, you’ll be setting out to photograph every car driving around the UK. With well over 650 cars in FH4, Horizon Promo will keep you busy for a good amount of time.
Rewards available range from credits to quick-chat lines. Horizon Promo is also the only way to currently get your hands on the Portofino and Guntherwerks Porsche. You can win the Portofino by photographing 100 total cars across Horizon, whilst you need to take pictures of 200 total cars for the Guntherwerks.
Stay tuned later this week for more details about Series 21 along with our seasonal update this coming Thursday.
