Forza Horizon 4’s update 27 is finally here with four brand new Japanese cars arriving at the UK festival! Not only do we receive cars in this update, but Playground Games has also decided to introduce new features to better the racing experience.
As we predicted earlier, the cars mentioned below will be a part of update 27. As usual, they will be free for all players and be obtained through the Festival playlist. If you missed grabbing exclusive cars months ago, you might also obtain a few of them in this month’s Festival playlist. Here are the new-to-Forza cars coming in this update:
- Lexus ISF
- Lexus RCF
- Toyota GT86
- Nissan 370Z FD
No, there are no new-to-Forza cars here. The new car packs arriving to Forza Horizon 4 this month are DLC cars from the car pass. The purpose of making car packs of the current car pass cars is to pick out the best cars and make a separate pack. Therefore, people who don’t want to spend $20 on car pass may now purchase your favorites in packs. That will cut costs, and you get what you want!
You can check out previously released packs at the Xbox store. The new collections will be available on the Xbox store this week!
New Game Mode
Not what fans predicted, but we’re getting a new feature that improves overall experiences. Perhaps one of the biggest issues with Forza is loading times. Playground Games have really put effort into cutting the loading times down as much as possible. For this update, Playground Games has realised that you actually spend more time loading into the race rather than racing a simple drag race.
This issue has been solved by adding a new feature called “The Drag Run,” which Playground developer explained as a drop-in and drop-out drag racing. It puts you in a hopper with other players, and you, still, race a regular drag race. The improvement here is that you’re not being put in free-roam after finishing. Instead, you’ll be instantly teleported back to the start line of the drag strip. This prevents long loading times, and as said, improves overall experiences.
There’s going to be plenty of fun in update 27, and I’m sure Playground Games will be back next month with the 28th update for Forza Horizon 4. But until then, enjoy this month’s update!
