Toyota is returning to Forza and we’re getting set for the final weekend of racing in the Forza Racing Championship 2019 Invitational Series. Today in the Forza Week in Review, we’re setting up all the action that will be coming your way this weekend, as well as taking look back at some huge Forza news from the beginning of the week. Let’s dive in!


Toyota Returns!

How’s this for a headline:



As teased on Tuesday’s Forza Horizon 4 Series 16 stream from Playground Games on and confirmed on this week’s edition of “Forza Monthly”, Toyota is returning to Forza! Starting on December 12th, Forza Horizon 4 players will get behind the wheel of the 1998 Toyota Supra RZ as part of the Series 17 update. Expect more Toyota and Lexus models to roll out in future Forza Horizon 4 updates as Forza players can expect to see Toyota and Lexus in our games for years to come.


The ForzaRC Finals Are Here

You don’t need a bigger reason to tune into the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels than this. The culmination of the ForzaRC 2019 Invitational Series is coming this weekend, bringing with it two days of intense racing action among the top eight teams who qualified for the weekend’s action.



You know the teams. At the top, there’s Williams Esports, who have performed in dominant fashion throughout most of the regular season, ending the regular season at the top of the table. There’s Red Bull Racing Esports, complete with three of the best-known individual drivers in all of Forza – Laige, b0x, and Venom. There’s Lazarus (aka the #PinkWall), perhaps the team with the closest ties between drivers. There’s a handful of long-standing community teams – JOTA eSport, TX3, Sauber Esports, etc. complete with some of the most experienced Forza drivers around, as well as the upstart teams like FRF and THR, who will be fighting hard to make their presences felt amongst the powerhouses.


The green flag drops on the ForzaRC Semi Finals starting tomorrow (Saturday, November 23rd) beginning at 10 a.m. Pacific. We’ll have eight races across two matches to determine the final four teams that will compete for their share of the $250,000 prize pool on Sunday. Don’t miss it!

Forza Horizon 4 | Series 16

Series 16 is here, Forza Horizon 4 players and, as part of the latest update, you can experience four amazing new cars, including a pair of tifosi­-pleasing Ferraris in the in the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista and the Ferrari 512. This update also brings with it new features such as improved handling of subtitles in the game, as well as a new Showcase Remix called “Morning Rush” and some changes to multiplayer that the community has been asking for. Namely, we’ve removed a couple of cars (the Hot Wheels Boneshaker and the Track Tor) from competitive online events such as Rivals and Online Adventures.

Forza Monthly | November

We had a load of fun on this week’s November edition of “Forza Monthly.” Turn 10’s Jon Knoles joined us on to take a run through the Series 16 update for Forza Horizon 4 and to talk about the news of Toyota’s return to the Forza franchise. Elsewhere, two of ForzaRC’s most famous faces – that would be Mellish and Alie Tacq – joined the couch to talk about this weekend’s finals and answered questions from ForzaRC viewers along the way. Mellish and Yours Truly also launched into a Forza Horizon 4 race competition, featuring a Blueprint route created by Alie.
