Forza Week in Review 4-26-19

Friday, April 26, 2019


Now that the Forza Race Regulations (FRR) public beta has begun with the Forza community, we have seen lots of feedback and questions about the system. Questions like “When is FRR going to be available in all hoppers?” or “When will collision-based penalties be a part of the system?” are just a few of the most common questions we see. If you’ve got a burning question for the FRR team at Turn 10, make sure you tune in for our Open Q&A with the developers coming to our Forza Discord server on Monday, April 29, starting at 1 p.m. Pacific.



The team behind FRR will be on hand for an hour to take questions from the community. We’ll be focused only on FRR questions here, so keep that in mind when considering what you want to know. Also, while we’ll do our best to answer as many questions as possible during the allotted time, we likely won’t be able to answer all questions that are submitted. To get involved, make sure you are part of our Forza Discord channel by following this link. Have a look around to get yourself familiarized and prepare your FRR questions for Monday.


Now, on with the Week in Review!


Forza Horizon 4 - Winter

With HBO’s “Game of Thrones” now mid-way through its final season, we have sadly passed the point where we can make “Winter is Coming” jokes in reference to Forza Horizon 4 and still have it be relevant to the show. (Of course that doesn’t mean we’re done with seasonal puns; far from it!) The winter season has returned to Horizon 4 and the Festival Playlist has been updated with new events to play and new rewards to earn.


Over in the #Forzathon Shop, you can keep your little tootsies toasty with some warm mittens, or you can keep the back roads of the UK burning up with the 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang. The winter season reward cars are the 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle (50% complete) and the Lykan Hypersport (80% complete), in addition to the ongoing series rewards, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Forza Edition (50% complete) and the Ford Crown Vic (80% complete).

Forza Monthly May

Here’s your friendly reminder that the next episode of Forza Monthly is coming at you on Tuesday, May 7, starting at 11 a.m. Pacific.



Before then, we’ve got another full week of streams coming at you, including the debut of a new limited series from our very own Johniwanna that we’re calling “Along for the Ride.” This is unlike any show we’ve done on the Forza channel, so I hope you join John when the show debuts on Wednesday, May 1 at 1 p.m. Pacific.



On today’s edition of #ForzaFriday, we’re going old-school with a Mechberg-only show. I’ll be playing Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7 with everyone, talking about the latest Forza news, and hanging out with all of you! The show starts at 3 p.m. Pacific on the Forza Mixer and Twitch channels. See you then!
