Does anyone know if there is any information on how many total Series there will be in Horizon 4 before they end? We are now on Festival Playlist series 64 and have almost looped through all of the historical series twice now. It would be nice to bring an end to the playlists and have some closure. A final patch that puts all of the hard to find cars, preorder cars, etc. into the autoshow to purchase with credits would be a good approach to do it gracefully and with dignity. This would allow future players to experience it all and allow late comers to catch up. I fear that if we just keep recycling playlists for another 2-3 years there will be very little chance of any meaningful sunsetting, especially one that includes some changes in a patch like suggested above.
Thoughts? Anyone have any concrete info?
I completely agree. There are so many cars I wanted but couldn’t get. A grand finale would also be good.
They should do the same for FH5 at some point.
This post should be in the suggestions hub, though.
Fair point, does a mod have to move it there, or something I can do?
You should be able to edit the tags. I’ve been trying to get in to be a Moderator, but I haven’t yet.
Do you see the pencil at the bottom of the post?
Press that and you can edit the tags. You should still be able to tag this as fh4, but change to suggestions progress.
Was this helpful?
The rotating playlist would be ok imo if it cycled through everything that was available. It seems there’s several cars that are being overused as prizes, such as the 16 Clio and Holden sedan. I don’t think closure is important to me at least since it’s entertainment but everything should be attainable.
The playlist would be an option to get the cars for “free”.
I tagged it as a “suggestion” now. Thanks.
No prob! As a regular, that’s what I’m here for.
I don’t mind them cycling through old series, but they’re not even cycling through all of them; I think the playlist has repeated verbatim twice over the past two years, because I know I’m seeing some of these Forzathons for at least the third time. Meanwhile there are at least five rare cars I’ve never seen appear as playlist rewards since I started playing: the four “unicorn” preorder cars that aren’t available as My Horizon level rewards, and I think the Napier Railton, though at least I found that in the AH. And that’s not counting the myriad of cosmetics that are listed as available via Wheelspin and, well, aren’t.
Honestly I think I’m done with FH4 after this series ends. It’s enough to go through the chorelist for one Horizon game each week, especially when the other isn’t offering anything that I don’t already own. I’ll keep checking in the off chance that PGG mixes things up and finally makes some of those old one-off rewards available again. I’d hold out hope for them making everything available when the game hits EOL, but considering the disgraceful state FH3 was left in, I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
What state was FH3 left in?
It makes sense to me to simply loop ALL the Festival Playlists, as that outght to allow access to ALL the cars at some point, right? Quite possible I’m missing something though…
As someone who’s only really into the singleplayer side of things, my main concern is what will happen when they turn off the servers: will ALL my stats/settings continue to be updated/saved locally; and what will happen to the Playlist and Backstage (both of which I enjoy), particularly as the former has multiple online elements?
As much as it should happen, knowing PGG and Forza overall I seriously doubt we’re ever going to see all the exclusive cars added to the autoshow. It happened with FH3, not just with the exclusive cars, but the two limited edition barn finds. Those were permanetly disabled and now 100%ing the game is literally impossible. It’s frustrating and pathetic.
I only picked up FH3 during its big EOL sale (I didn’t even know it was available on PC before that), so I don’t know exactly how Forzathons worked while the game was live, only that they were a more experimental smaller thing that later evolved into the full weekly playlist in the next two games. What I do know is that there were cars introduced in some of those Forzathons that never wound up getting added to the Autoshow or Wheelspins, even after the game was abandoned. Even worse, there were two new Barn Finds that popped up during those Forzathons that are now completely impossible to activate, and your stats screen will even show them as permanently missing. I once found a site claiming that the final “Into the Horizon” Forzathon would unlock the Barn Finds and some of those cars, but either it was mistaken or that was a limited-time thing because it does absolute squat now. I’d imagine it’s pretty much impossible to get most of those things even through the Auction House, especially since credits were much scarcer in 3 than they are in 4 or 5.
Thanks for the info.
What a shame.
Strange how so much care and attention is paid to some things, and so little to others; to leave cars inaccessible really is pretty poor form, IMO.
I played FH3 a lot when the game was live, so I can answer this. The old Forzathons were basically what the daily challenges are now. Fairly easy objectives like “win a race in any [car from X manufacturer]” or “complete 3 bucket list challenges”. However, these would each give out individual rewards, usually cars. This is primarily how Porsche was reintroduced to the series (plus a car pack for NewToForza ones). The Forzathon shop did not exist then, so FP wasn’t a thing.
Yes I am in this camp, unable to ever get those two barn finds in FH3.
Add the VW Ghia to this list of overused prizes. it has appeared in Series 56, 58, 60, 64 and 65!
The author is right. They need to put an end to that playlist n add all the non auto show cars n preorder cars to the auto show so that everyone can complete their collection.
