The Series 12 Update for Forza Horizon 4 is now available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. As shown on the latest in-studio livestream from developer Playground Games in Leamington Spa, UK, this freshest update for the shared open-world racing game introduces new Showcase Remixes and new vehicles to unlock, including the eagerly awaited LEGO Speed Champions Barn Find!

Those who have already found the hidden Barn Find on LEGO Valley can now experience another LEGO Speed Champions brickmobile, as those previously missing instructions have been finally uncovered. The Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 has been made available to everyone who has already located this elusive Barn Find. Those who haven’t yet can find it on the LEGO Valley. For more details on this unique car, be sure to read our dedicated story.

Series 12 features two Showcase Remixes to enjoy. Up first is ‘Assault on the Control Room,’ a twist on the Halo Experience Showcase that allows players to reminisce the classic mission from Halo: Combat Evolved in the world of Forza Horizon 4. Be sure to take the time to re-run this UNSC Fleetcom training exercise when it returns in the Winter season, as it’ll counts towards your Star Card progress as a Racing Superstar.

Meanwhile, the ‘Superfast vs. Supersonic’ event is a brand-new Remix of the Delta-Wing Showcase, pitting the highly coveted 2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast against a vast supersonic jet on a balmy Spring morning. Remember, both Showcase Remixes are unlocked for play once the regular versions have been completed.

Festival Playlist has several new reward cars up for grabs over the next four weeks. These include two supercars from Aston Martin in the 2019 DBS Superleggera and the 2017 Vanquish Zagato Coupé, as well as a pair of classic Volkswagens in the 1967 Karmann Ghia and the 1967 Type 3 “Notchback” 1600L.
