Another four-weekly cycle is upon us in the world of Forza Horizon 4 and the Series 22 update is here this week. Over the course of the next four weekly seasonal playlists, Horizon 4 players will have the opportunity to earn six new cars that are coming to the game. The full list includes some 80's and 90's rally flavor:
- 1999 Ford Racing Puma (Autumn season)
- 1990 Nissan Pulsar (Spring season)
- 1990 Toyota Celica 185 (Winter season)
- 1994 Toyota Celica ST205 (Summer season)
- 1991 Peugeot 205 Rallye (Summer season)
- 1988 Mitsubishi Starion
The new cars will be available through the festival playlists by either completing specific challenges in their respective seasons or by completing a percentage of the seasonal challenges so everyone who plays will have a solid chance at adding them to their garage.
Also coming to Forza Horizon 4 in Series 22 is a new feature for Horizon Promo that will make taking the photos much, much quicker. Currently, the standard photo mode processing applies which leaves you sitting in front of a loading screen for a decent length of time. Add that up across all of the cars in the game and suddenly you've spent a lot of hours in front of the game doing absolutely nothing.
Series 22 adds a new Promo Quickshot mode accessed by pressing the right bumper that foregoes the usual creative features of photo mode and just snaps a quick image to tick off another car on the Horizon Promo list.
Two showcase remixes will be available to play through during the course of Series 22 as well, with the Halo showcase remix, Pillar of Autumn making a return and adding a spot of rain to proceedings. In the other, Isha's Taxis will be taking on the Delta-Wing.
Additionally, there will be a handful of fixes and improvements. Here's what to expect per the full patch notes:
- Fixed an Issue with players being unable switch Star Card flairs
- Fixed an issue with Forzathon Points being displayed incorrectly in Russian
- Fixed an issue with Tool Tip options disappearing when browsing liveries in the Creative Hub
- Fixed an issue with the 2005 Honda NSX-R which caused parts of the hood to clip through the dashboard in cockpit view
- Fixed an issue with the 2007 Formula Drift #117 599 GTB Fiorano where wheel screws were not being painted correctly
- Various stability improvements
The update will be pushing out at some point on May 5 with the first seasonal change taking place as usual on Thursday. If you want to check out the update livestream for yourself it's available on-demand on the Forza Mixer Channel.
