Forza Horizon 4's new Eliminator game mode just rolled out this week, allowing drivers to combat each other in a battle royale. Playground Games shipped an update today for Forza Horizon 4 that fixes several bugs in Eliminator mode. The update also includes a balance change that delivers more damage to players outside the arena. The update is available for both PC and Xbox One.

A support page breaks down all of the changes.

Eliminator Balance Changes

  • Significantly increased the damage to the players outside the Arena when it has shrunk to its final size.

Eliminator Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to challenge other players to a Head-to-Head
  • Added the ability to reset your car position if stuck in a way which does not trigger the automatic reset
  • If you find yourself stuck, hold accelerate, and you will be prompted to reset your car position
  • Fixed the issue with some Head-to-Head races having their finish line appear outside of the Arena
  • Fixed an issue with the post-race upgrade UI, where the D-pad icon was not appearing as intended
  • Fixed an issue where if one player was eliminated by the arena whilst in a Head-to-Head, both players would be eliminated.
  • Fixed an intermittent crash

Eliminator faces 72 players against each other in a fight to the "death." You eliminate players from the arena, which shrinks as the game progresses. We took a closer look at Eliminator mode recently to explain the mayhem.
