Last night Playground Games showed the new Series 8 Update for Forza Horizon 4 and we got to see a lot of newer cars and events coming to Forza Horizon 4. The new update will arrive this week and it will bring the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack, new events and adventures and a brand new drift camera feature which was released earlier in Forza Motorsport 7.
The main highlight of the Series 8 Update is the brand new Online Adventure game mode called Drift Adventure which will allow players to take part in three-race Drift Championships. Players who love to drift around will love this update. As they drift around asphalt, they will earn points based on their angle and speed and when the event ends, the player with the highest score will be the winner.
Each race will have a few laps so players will have plenty of time to show off their skills sideways in each lap. Each lap’s score is different and the lap with the highest score counts towards your win. Another new feature for all the drifting fans is the addition of a brand new Drift Camera.
The Drift Camera can be activated in the HUD and Gameplay settings and it will show additional angles while you go sideways in your drifting vehicle. The view will automatically pan towards the direction in which your car is traveling in the cockpit view when this mode is enabled. This is one of the best camera angles for all the drift fans out there.
Apart from this, some changes have been made to the Online Adventure mode. You can check them out below.
- S2 Class has been removed from Dirt Racing Championships.
- B Class has been added to Dirt Racing Championships.
- Freeroam Rush events have been removed from all Asphalt and Street Race Championships.
- Collisions are disabled for the first 30 seconds of each race. This change also applies to Horizon Life PvP races.
A brand new Car Pack is also coming for all the Car Pass holders. The new Barrett-Jackson Car Pack will bring 7 new cars for the players to drive around. This pack was released earlier for Forza Motorsports 7 but now it is coming to Forza Horizon 4 as well. The cars are the same as they were for Forza Motorsport 7 which range from the hand-built 1932 Ford Custom Double Down to the 1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra.
A new Showcase Remix will also arrive with the update which will allow players to drive the off-road ready 1958 Austin-Healy Sprite MK1. This is a limited time event so you will need to play until the event is live. Last but not the least, a Series Update will be incomplete without new reward cars and Series 8 Update is bringing brand new exclusive vehicles to the mix. Check them all out below.
