Series 35 of Forza Horizon 4 has been unveiled, and it features three new, disparate, cars.
Available next week, on Tuesday 4th May, the leading entry is the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. This off-road truck has been tremendously popular in the USA, as it combines the utilitarian nature of the renowned Jeep Wrangler and marries it with the practicality of a pick-up. It joins other adventure focussed beasts within the game, such as the Ford F-150 Raptor and will smash down dry stone walls will aplomb.
It will be yours by completing the ‘are you not entertained’ event within summer of the new Festival Playlist.
Next up is the Porsche 928 GTS, an often-over-looked sports car from Stuttgart that features pop-up headlights for added 1990s flair. First introduced in 1977, the GTS model was the last-of-the-line edition that finally went out of production in 1995.
Should you fancy this slice of German precision, complete 50 per cent of the new spring Festival Playlist.
The final brand-new car is the Citroën DS 23. Now, for better or worse, I happen to be a massive Citroën DS fan. One of my all-time favourites. The revolutionary hydropneumatic suspension allows the car to stay level even if you had a flat tyre – much to the assistance of the French President, Charles de Gaulle, in 1962, who was able to survive an assassination attempt in his three-wheeled DS.
Does that help you in Forza Horizon 4? Probably not. This is not a car that excels at speed, handling or braking performance. Great in photo mode, not so great in a race. It’s yours for completing 50 per cent of the winter Festival Playlist.
Has there been a more polarising car update for this game? Let us know in the comments what you think.
Alongside the new cars for the game, Series 35 also adds the option of collecting rare existing cars should you complete Festival Playlist events.
To kick things off, in summer, highlights include the ‘legendary’ Porsche 550 and Lancia Stratos, the ‘hard to find’ Renault Clio R.S. 16, the ‘rare’ Hummer Open Top alongside the aforementioned Jeep.
Moving to autumn, there is the ‘hard to find’ Lancia Delta Integrale, the ‘legendary’ Pagani Zonda R, the ‘epic’ Rally Fighter plus the ‘hard to find’ Honda Civic ‘84 and Ford Racing Puma.
Winter includes the prizes such as the ‘hard to find’ Subaru WRC ‘04, Mitsubishi Starion ESI-R and Quartz Regalia D alongside two Forza Edition vehicles: the BMW M6 ‘13 FE and the Land Rover Series III FE.
Last, but not least, Spring features the ‘legendary’ Ferrari 512 S, the Forza Edition Alumi Craft FE with the ‘hard to find’ Ford Mustang ‘93 and Peugeot 205 Rallye rounding out the unlockable cars.
That’s it for this update, there was no word on the Horizon Super7: High Stakes mode that was discussed last month. We’ll keep you up to speed on Forza Horizon 4 and let us know in the comments what cars you’d like to see in the game next.
