As announced on the latest edition of Forza Monthly, live from Seattle, WA, the Series 17 Update for Forza Horizon 4 arrives on Thursday, December 12th for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. In addition to the long-awaited return of Toyota production vehicles, beginning with the beloved 1998 Toyota Supra RZ, this month’s update also introduces a brand-new way to experience the shared open world of beautiful, historic Britain.
The Eliminator introduces battle-royale inspired racing to Forza Horizon 4 and all four of its Dynamic Seasons. Up to 72 players compete within an arena, eliminating one another in head-to-head races to earn faster cars and steal those of their opponents. Arena walls contract as the game progresses and more players are knocked out, forcing competitors to become ever so closer together until one final race among the remaining survivors determines the winner.
Competing in The Eliminator gives players the opportunity to unlock a host of new reward cars and cosmetic items. These include all-new vehicles to Forza Horizon 4, such as the 1998 Toyota Supra RZ, the 2008 Renault Mégane R26.R, the 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator and the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Pre-Order Edition.
For the record, the Supra can also be acquired from the Autoshow for 220,000 CR and features new body-kit options that can be applied to replicate the styling from the classic Fast & Furious street racer. As for The Eliminator, there’s a lot to discover within this robust battle-royale racing experience – more details of which can be found in our in-depth hands-on preview of the fresh new battle royale gamemode.
In addition, the Festival Playlist continues its rotation of new events and challenges, with the theme of this month’s rewards focusing entirely on Renault. Up for grabs next series is the 2017 Alpine A110, the 2003 Renault Clio RS, the 2007 Renault Clio 197, the 2016 Renault Clio RS and the 2018 Renault Mégane RS.
New Quick Chat options are also now available, themed specifically around The Eliminator and its gameplay mechanics, as well as the arrival of the 1998 Toyota Supra RZ. Indeed, the iconic “Is that a Supra?” line is featured. Meanwhile, new clothing items can be used to show off your skillful mastery of The Eliminator, including new t-shirts, jackets and race suits.
