The Series 7 update for Forza Horizon 4 arrives today! This series includes some big updates for Horizon 4, including new achievements, new vehicles to explore, Showcase Remixes, and the new Festival Playlist feature.


Here’s an overview of what to expect:



Festival Playlist

Beginning with the summer season change – which will occur this Thursday, March 14 -- The Series 7 update adds a new feature called Festival Playlist. Each season, the Festival Playlist gives you a clear view of everything that’s going on in Forza Horizon 4 season and keeps track of everything you’ve done. From #Forzathon challenges to new items in the shop to Rivals events and more, the Festival Playlist is your all-in-one spot for everything happening in the game each week. Plus, complete all the weekly events to earn some of Horizon’s most desirable rewards.


RTR Cars in Forza Horizon 4

Among the vehicles coming to Forza Horizon 4 with Series 7 are three drift-ready RTR cars. In addition to piloting around the competitive Formula Drift cars driven by the likes of Chelsea DeNofa and Vaughn Gittin Jr., there’s also the road-going 2018 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5. Keep an eye on the Festival Playlist each week to find out how you can add these amazing rides to your garage!


2018 Ford #25 Mustang RTR

One of the American drifting greats and 2010 Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gitten Jr. is known for his aggressive style and billowing smoky driving. He’s so aggressive that you will often see his Monster Energy liveried Mustang on three or even two wheels on entry. You have to credit the driver for this no-holds-barred, go for it action, but the car deserves some credit as well. After all, when you put massive horsepower from a naturally-aspirated Roush-Yates V8 with a 9,000 RPM redline in this stripped down, full-on, drift car, any Forza lover can give it their all. This is the car that made history drifting the entire Nordschleife leaving a mark that can never be forgotten. It’s one greatness enabling machine you need to experience.


2018 Ford #88 Mustang RTR

Chelsea Denofa has been making a name for himself in many forms of racing. He got his start in the world of drifting before he even had a driver’s license. Since then he has raced as an SCCA pro where he gained car control and incredible driving skills before diving head first into the world of drifting. Now considered among the top drivers in Formula Drift, he joined the RTR Drift Team in 2017. In his BC Racing livery Mustang that shares the same specs with Vaughn Gitten Jr’s RTR Mustang, Denofa has been blowing minds with his precise and exciting drifts. With 1,000 horsepower, BC Racing coilovers, a custom IRS, and 4-speed dog box transmission, it’s now your chance to melt tires and make a name for your own drifting aspirations.


2018 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5

The Ford Mustang has always been a legend, but when the team at RTR got their hands on this one they created something special and awesome. This pony car has got the look and the guts to go racing, drifting or just cruise. Take a good look at the custom wide body kit with side skirts, chin spoiler, rear diffuser, with RTR hood vents and you can see this thing means business. Looks aside, the real treat is under the hood where you will find a 460 horsepower Coyote V8 putting power through a 10-speed paddle-shifted transmission. It’s the perfect balance of performance and looks and will serve you well wherever you see fit to put it to good use.
