Forza Motorsport 4: Week in Review 11/23
We’ve got a quick (and early) edition of the Week in Review
this week, as Turn 10 shuts down during the latter half of the week for the
Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S. For me, that means piling my family and
two dogs into a rented Chevy Traverse and driving overnight from Seattle to San
Francisco, a trip that should take around 13 hours, provided Thanksgiving
traffic doesn’t turn out to be the hassle I’m fully expecting it to be. We’ll
spend a few days in the Bay Area and then make the trek back to Washington on
Saturday. Twenty six hours on the road during the busiest travel holiday of the
year in the U.S., with two dogs, one child, and the wife… what could possibly
Anyway, while I’ll be braving the “adventure” of holiday
travel, I’m sure many of you who celebrate Thanksgiving (and even those of you
who don’t) will be spending quality time with friends and family and probably
some Forza 4 too. On Monday of this week we held our most recent Game With Turn
10 event and the turnout was strong, despite it starting at the odd time of 2
p.m. PDT. We’ll likely be holding another Game With Dev event next week but the
plans are still up in the air because next week promises to be a big one.
Why, you ask? Well, next week will see the announcement of
our next add-on pack for Forza 4. We’ll be announcing with a special partner,
so keep your eyes peeled to our Twitter and Facebook feeds, as
we’ll be updating you all the moment the announcement hits the Internet. Stay

contest and, soon after, fans will be able to vote on their favorite design,

Forum Big Shot Photo Contest
In addition to our regularly scheduled weekly photo contest, we’re kicking
off a forum-only photo contest this week. You’ll be taking on your friends and
neighbors in the Forza forums this time around, which means the competitiveness
and the skill level will be taken up a notch. In addition to unicorn prizes for
the top winners, we’ll also have a special grand prize for the overall winner—a
Ferrari cap signed by Formula One stars Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa! For more information on
the contest, check out the dedicated thread on the forums. Good luck to

Well, that wraps up this week’s abbreviated Week in Review.

everyone else, see you next week!
