Forza Week in Review 6-21-19
If you watched the Series 10 update livestream from Playground Games a few weeks ago, you probably caught the Rimac C_TWO, the new all-electric supercar being developed by the Croatian manufacturer. Rimac originally set out to make a name for itself with its battery systems and drivetrains. At last year’s Geneva Motor Show, the company unveiled the C_TWO, a 1,900 hp monster that is the latest gem in Rimac’s manufacturing crown.
The C_TWO is coming to Forza Horizon 4, starting next week with the arrival of the Spring season. In the meantime, you can drive the car as part of the Astmoor Heritage Circuit Monthly Rivals event, and check out this teaser for the car in FH4 from Rimac’s YouTube page:
Now that your appetite is properly whetted, let’s get into the Week in Review!
Le Mans Esports 2019 Super Finals
Congratulations to the Veloce Esports team, who stood on the top podium at last weekend’s Le Mans Esports Super Finals. Held on the same weekend as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the LMES Super Finals featured qualified teams from all over the world converging on Le Mans to complete in a grueling endurance test of nine races over a 24-hour period. The Veloce team, comprised of Noah Schmitz (Veloce Virus), James Baldwin, and David Kelly (Daveyskills) managed to get the overall win, despite being in fourth place overall before the winner-take-all final race. With the win, the Veloce team took home the $25,000 top prize.
Baguette Racing, featuring Aurelien Mallet (RBR Laige), Christopher Cabrera, and Alexandre Arnou (ASIX), finished second overall, followed by the Kitty Krew team featuring Evan Thorogood (Raceboy77), Daniel Nyman (LZR ForceOne), and Phelipe Reis (Sauber ZooM).
Congratulations to the podium finishers and to all the competitors for this year’s LMES competition!
Winter in Forza Horizon 4
As mentioned at the top, the Rimac C_TWO concept car is coming to Forza Horizon, but you’ll need to wait until Spring rolls around next week to get it. The car will be rewarded to players who complete 50% of the seasonal events during the Spring season.
Before we get to Spring, however, we’ve got Winter to enjoy in Forza Horizon 4 this week, and there are a handful of special cars available as well, including the new-to-FH4 AMC Rebel, which you can get for beating the White Knuckle Ride racing series. This week, the season completion reward cars are the Hoonigan Ford Fiesta (50% completion) and the 1993 Ford Mustang (80% completion). In addition, players looking for the hard-to-find Lancia Delta or the Audi TT RS, will be rewarded with events offering those very cars.
