forza horizon 4

Playground Games’ stellar Forza Horizon 4 provided tons of stuff to play through and collect. However, the developer still has more to offer – like the new Route Creator. Finally, players will be able to create their very own racing routes, building upon the Horizon Blueprint system that already exists in-game.

According to the release notes, custom routes can be created for Asphalt, Dirt, and Cross-Country Events, and stretch up to 40 miles from the starting locations. The route is created by “drawing” it with your car and placing checkpoints. That’s not all though. A new Horizon Story called British Racing Green will also be available with the update.

Though players must be level 50 or higher, it focuses on cars made in Britain and begins in Broadway. It offers the Bentley 8 Litre, a unique clothing item, and new quick chat phrases to unlock. Other features included with the update are engine audio improvements, a fix for progress loss on Forzathon Challenges, a fix for a VIP House reward exploit, and much more. Check it all out below.
