Just double-checking... they added new stories, in addition to the four sets that were originally in the game?

Yes.  They're located in the little town south-east of the main festival site. I think they start to show up after level 50 with the new patch. (Patched my PC version, didn't see if for the X1 yet) So that brings your totals up to 50 chapters and 120 stars. I personally found them the easiest of the bunch, too.

The new Horizon Story chapters in FH4 are fun. It's Top Gear inspired and features all British cars. I also found it the easiest to 3 star, coming up with 29/30 without much effort (rewinds ect). So now you have a new way to earn those 100 stars and Complete 40 chapters achievements easier.

25% off a month of Game Pass for M$rewards. 5250 points. It doesn't show any other options for me.

Does anyone have a good setup and location to do the weekly forzathon challenge of getting a 7 million point skill combo in an off road vehicle? I misse the extremely hoon-able golf course from the original Horizon for this kind of thing,

Your first two responses are good places to complete that challenge. Also, the 7million doesn't have to be done at once. So to maximize your skill points, start a new chain when you have a skill chain with 480k-500k. 96k x 5 multiplyer, or 80k x 6 multiplier. 48k or 40k if you got a skill song going. You only get credit for 10 skill points on one single chain, so start a new chain once you do hit that threshhold. That way you can farm lots of skill points for a car you like.

 

I ended up using a Mercedes G-Wagon that I won off a wheel spin.

For FH4, some of those bonus boards on top of things can be broke easier if you do some danger signs. A few will set up ramps that allow you to get them very easily.

Have to get on joining the CAG Club in FH4.

All my Drivatar opponents have that [CAG] before their name. I imagine we're all driving to Walmart to pick up a copy some game glitched down to a buck or something.

Weekly #Forzathon Challenge for those sweet 100 points. (200 if you're VIP or you spend 5million for the mansion that doubles your #Forzathon points) You have to complete these steps in order, or else they don't complete correctly for you.

 

1) The easy part. Purchase the 1992 Honda NSX-R. (or get lucky and win it through a wheel spin)

2) Take your NSX over 175 mph. I will not do it stock. I did the easy S1 computer upgrade on it. Works fine.

3) Win 3 Road Sprint Events. Those are the lighter blue events on your map. They are square-ish with a checkered flag. Make sure to select an event that says Sprint in the title. Those are the ones that you complete a percentage of the race not the ones that are 3 laps. And be sure to win. You can play on easy if you want.

4) Earn 10 Air Skills. I just took my NSX off road in off some small hills. You can do it during a race. You can hit Danger Signs. It doesn't even have to be Ultimate Air. Just get some air.

After 400 prize spins in Forza I am finally to the point I'm consistently getting cars and money and not the glitter clothing and rain boots.

Tips for the 4orizon GP people.

 

Always do your wheel spins from the menu. That way you can hit the A button to speed things up a tiny bit.

 

When you earn a new spin out driving around, it's tempting to hit the X button to go right to the spins. But if you have 400 spins you're gonna wait twice as long as you could from the menu.

So how long before the Mixer influence loads into the game? I went through the tutorial, already in winter and still the influence does nmot reflect there, am I doing something wrong or just have to wait?

You have to get through all 4 seasons and get a wrist band. That will put you at level 20 and then you unlock everything there is to do in the game.

 

I am so jealous of all you FH4 Ultimate players. Can’t wait. Trying to remember, are GP games playable the night before? Like tomorrow night?

MS posted this early in the morning on Friday. If it is as complete as the Ultimate Edition in pre-order form, the upgrade from the Game Pass version looks to be one hell of a deal. I'm sure there might be one or two things a person might miss out doing that upgrade, but they always seem to make most of the DLC available down the road. I personally was betting that upgrade pass was going to be more expensive than it is. So I think all I really got from ordering the Ultimate is a nice steel book to keep my game in and the ability to play a little early. Then the game will stay in its SB once the game launches on Game Pass.

 

TLDR: Game Pass plus upgrade to Ultimate for $50 seems like the deal. Your CAG instincts were right to not order the UE.

The Mixer 4orizon influence farming was worth it. After the tutorial, I went from level 20 straight up to 140. That netted me 129 wheel spins. Definitely worth it to sit in one of those streams if you can and passively earn those points.

That is such a good metaphor considering how often the sales are regurgitated for us.

So who is going to make the CAG club in FH4? We get 2000 members. Should be enough for most of us, right?
