Turn 10 Studios has released the Series 21 Update for Forza Horizon 4 on Xbox One and Windows 10. As showcased on the latest livestream from developer Playground Games in Leamington Spa, UK, this update features a host of new reward cars and the return of Horizon Promo – a feature found in previous entries in the franchise.

Horizon Promo

Horizon Promo enhances the Photo Mode in Forza Horizon 4 and is unlocked once players purchase the Sunflower Meadows house in Ambleside. Rewards are earned by taking photos around Britain, so be on the lookout for cars with a camera icon situated above them. The more unique cars you shoot, the more rewards you’ll earn in the process – including two new exclusive reward vehicles, as outlined below.

The Car Collection screen has also been given a makeover to account for Horizon Promo. It now tracks how many cars you’ve photographed and those which you still need to collect. As more cars are added to the game in the future, they will also become available to photograph, too.
