Over 12 million drivers have experienced the shared open-world of beautiful, historic Britain in Forza Horizon 4. The news was shared by Jon Knoles, Design Director at Turn 10 Studios on the latest edition of the Forza Monthly broadcast show. In addition to this landmark figure, he also revealed that more than 4 million players engage with the game on a monthly basis.
Since its release, Forza Horizon 4 has received around 75 cars added post-launch that can be earned via gameplay at no additional cost. With the arrival of the Series 13 Update for the game, which rolls out on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC from Wednesday, August 28th, even more new cars and events will be added to Forza Horizon 4.
These new additions include the meticulously designed 2018 Italdesign Zerouno supercar, built by a subsidiary of Lamborghini. It comes accompanied with a selection of new Porsches, including the 1970 Porsche #3 917 LH, the 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6, the 1951 Porsche 356 SL Gmünd Coupé and the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS. All these cars can be unlocked through the Festival Playlist over the next four weeks. Looking ahead, Playground Games will also introduce the ability to edit checkpoints placed in Route Creator events, a feature which allows the community to craft their own custom courses and share them with the entire playerbase.
The success of Forza Horizon 4 shows absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon. It’s the fastest-selling and most successful entry into the franchise to-date, garnering more than 2 million players within its first week of release and exceeding 7 million players globally before the end of 2018. At E3, to coincide with the reveal of the LEGO Speed Champions expansion, it was revealed by Forza Franchise Creative Director Dan Greenawalt that Forza Horizon 4 had surpassed 10 million players globally – which means that the game has attracted an additional 2 million players over the course of the Summer season.
