Forza Horizon 4 | Series 10 Update

Series 10 for Forza Horizon 4 arrives this week and is bringing new cars, new events to the Festival Playlist, and more. Foremost among the new cars this series is the astonishing Rimac C_TWO, the 1,900-hp all-electric beast that looks to change the very definition of “hypercar” going forward. With two separate motors powering individual rear wheels, the Rimac is capable of 0-60 mph in about 1.8 seconds, and a gear-regulated top speed of 250 mph.


Other cars coming during the Series 10 timeframe include the Cadillac Limo, the Bentley Continental Forza Edition, the Fiat Dino and the AMC Rebel, which is making its debut in Forza Horizon 4 here with Series 10.


Star Card

New for Series 10 is the Star Card, a high-speed checklist for all the different event types in Forza Horizon 4. By bringing up the Star Card feature from the menu, you can track your progress across six different event types in the game: Racing, PR Stunts, Exploring, Creation, Story, and Adventure.


Under each event type, players will find tracking for various activities throughout the game. For example, under the Racing category, you’ll earn completion by driving 5,000 miles in the game, winning Showcase (or Showcase Remix) events, or winning 50 head-to-head races, among other activities. Progression through each category event is represented by bronze (started), silver (halfway) and gold (complete) coloring. Once you complete a category, you’ll earn a flair item you can use next to your Gamertag in game.


Note there are some known issues with the Star Card feature, including getting credit for past accomplishments and discoveries being counted in the current Star Card implementation. For example, Showcase/Showcase Remix events won before this update will not count towards Star Card; this is because those items were not previously tracked by the game. In order to count on the Star Card going forward, players will have to re-race Showcase/Showcase Remix events.

Festival Playlist

Players can now start matchmaking for Seasonal Playground Games and The Trial event directly from the Festival Playlist screen. Also, when checking the list of eligible cars for a Seasonal Championship, the game now correctly includes cars that are eligible even if they can’t be purchased for the Autoshow.
