Series 34 has been revealed for Forza Horizon 4 and will be available later on 6th April 2021.
Leading this series is the new Porsche 356 RSR Emory. This is a coachwork special, stretching a classic Porsche 356 body over a more modern 911 964 chassis. It is then tuned to deliver over 400 bhp from a twin-turbo flat-four engine. This is the second special car from the US-based customizer to feature in Horizon 4, following on from the Porsche 356 C Cabriolet Emory Special.
This will be yours for completing 50 per cent of the new Summer season of the Festival Playlist.
The second of the new cars for the open-world racing game, which recently released on Steam, is a classic Pontiac Firebird from 1968. This first-generation Firebird was on the F-body General Motors platform and this version has the 325 hp 6.6-litre 400 cubic inch V8 engine.
To unlock this slice of American muscle, you must complete the Phoenix from the Ashes season event in the spring of the new Festival Playlist.
Alongside the new cars, Series 34 also adds new events where you can add rare existing cars to your garage for completion.
In summer, the highlights include the Legendary Lamborghini Veneno, a Forza Edition Bentley Continental and three ‘hard to find’ vehicles in the form of a VW Notchback, Holden HSV GTS and Ford Raptor 2011.
Autumn provides the opportunity to obtain the Forza Edition BMW M5 1988, the Legendary Lamborghini Centenario and two ‘hard to find’ cars in the shape of the Toyota Celica 1994 and Holden VL Group A.
Moving on to winter, and the Mercedes-Benz X-Class pick-up is a ‘hard to find’ vehicle, followed by the Koenigsegg CCGT. The Epic Mini X-Raid off-road rally raid car is also available here as well as two Legendary cars: Ken Block’s Hoonigan Focus and the Ford Mustang 1969.
Finally, in spring, the ‘hard to find’ Mini John Cooper Works Dakar Buggy is up for grabs along with a Porsche 906 from 1966. The Epic Dodge Charger Daytona is also featured.
Other changes for this update are fixes for two Steam achievements that weren’t popping, the removal of the cursor when using a controller, a Windows-update related crash and the server population management on Steam, plus a resolution to a memory-related crash on Xbox Series consoles.
The Cyberpunk 2077 Quadra Turbo-R will also be updated, with reversing lights, interior displays and headlight positioning changed so it will be closer to the version in the Cyberpunk 2077 game.
During the recent Forza Monthly stream, a new Super7 update was discussed. In Horizon Super7: High Stakes, every time you win a challenge, you bank a prize into your prize pool and you can at any time keep the items. But, if you want to risk it, each subsequent challenge can potentially add to your prizes. Once you’ve decided to twist and take on a challenge, you must complete it within three tries. If you fail, you lose all the prizes accumulated to that point.
The idea is to add a new edge to the community created challenges and it will priorities on the more difficult events. Super7: High Stakes will not be in this next update but it will be part of another update “very, very, soon.”
We’ll update this post when we get a firm date for the Series 34 update and for the Super7: High Stakes update later on. For now, let us know if you’re excited via social media.
