The first update of 2019 for Forza Horizon 4 will arrive on Tuesday, January 15th on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, a few days ahead of the Summer seasonal change. As detailed on the official Forza Support website, the Series 5 update introduces a new way to experience compeititve-based multiplayer in Forza Horizon 4 with the arrival of a Free-For-All Adventure mode.
Available in both Ranked and Unranked variants, this solo-inspired mode sees players competing against each other individually instead of being grouped as teams. Free-For-All Adventure can be located under the renamed ‘Online Adventure’ tab and replaces the ‘Anything Goes’ mode from Team Adventure, which combined Racing and Playground Games into one playlist.
In addition to the Free-For-All Adventure mode, the Series 5 Update for Forza Horizon 4 also introduces ‘Racing Series,’ ‘Creator’ and ‘Title’ filters to Event Blueprint searching – allowing you to find custom routes developed by the community easier than before. There’s also the ability to view eligible cars for a Trial or Seasonal Championship, whist a fix has been applied to an issue that saw Drivatar names duplicated in events. You can find the full breakdown of fixes, tweaks and improvements outlined in the official patch notes on the Forza Support website.
Be on the lookout for details on Series 5 content for Forza Horizon 4 as we approach January 15th. Remember, each update for the game typically introduces new exclusive cars for players to unlock during the weekly seasons, as well as additional vehicles for Car Pass holders.
