The Leaves Fall Again in This Week’s Forza Horizon 4 Seasonal Events

It’s that time of the week again. Forza Horizon 4 has ditched the summer haze in favor of the brisk winds of autumn.

This is only the second time the season has come around, with the first sighting at the game’s launch. With the change comes a week’s worth of content for players to explore under a shower of falling leaves.

Below, you’ll find the full breakdown of events, Forzathon shop, and your second chance at a barn find rumor.

New Events

As ever, there are myriad new events for festival junkies to take part in. A few of the events go the extra mile of including unique rewards. Care to know what’s up for grabs? Have a look at the roadmap outlined in last month’s Route Creator update.

This week, players will no doubt have their eyes on the Hot Wheels Bone Shaker. A returning car from the aptly-named expansion in FH3, the Larry Wood-designed model is a head turner. In fact, its popularity resulted in a real-world recreation.

With a small-block Chevy V8 making 402hp under the hood, the Bone Shaker is as intimidating as it looks. A factor made more obvious by the skull-topped spine shifter and the skull-and-crossbones steering wheel.

Unlike last week’s Twin Mill, the Bone Shaker is up for grabs through the Forzathon Shop. While there aren’t any orange tracks nearby, it’s nice to see the Bone Shaker return.

The lowdown on this week’s championship events are as follows:

Forzathon Events

This week’s Forzathon events focus on the Ford Capri RS3100. With the roads more slippery and plenty of gravel in sight, it’s a perfect fit.

The first challenge is as simple as they come: simply own and drive the car. At 55,000 credits (or less if you happen upon one in the Auction House) this is easy enough to complete. Next up is yet another easy task: driving 10 miles in the Capri. Need we say more?

The third step is a little more challenging as you’ll need to rack up 9 stars in Speed Zones around the world. There are a few ways to tackle this one, with the quickest being three-staring any three zones. Finally, you’ll have to amass 8 “Great Skill Chains”.

Head out to the beach alongside Edinburgh Castle and you’ll have this one done in no time at all. The bonus 100 Forzathon points will come as handy. Besides, you can never have too many.

Forzathon Store

This week’s lineup features the Bone Shaker, as mentioned before. You’ll want to act fast, not only for the sake of collection, but you’ll need it for one of the seasonal events.

At 175 Forza Points, it’s more expensive than last week’s F355, though at least this is the only way to get the Bone Shaker. At least for now.

Beyond that, this week’s Forza Edition car is the Chevrolet Nova Super Sport 396. It’s a good haul with the added benefit of having a Speed Skills Boost perk — a perfect marriage by all accounts. At 250 FP, it’s cheaper than last week’s Reventon by a decent margin.

Finally, there’s two new Day of the Dead tees at 75 FP apiece.

Barn Find

If you missed the opportunity the first time autumn came around, you’re in luck. Those expecting something new, look elsewhere. We won’t give it away for those unsuspecting, but it’s a classic British car with some Italian bravado.
