Forza Horizon 4

Recommended Posts

The PR stunts are hard as fuck this time around, definately toughter than FH3.

 

I'm going at the Danger Signs first and I'm having a good time trying to 3 star the bastards. Ive done almost all of them with the Ariel Nomad 2016, if you search for a tune up made by a dude called Weebok that's your ticket for success. The only ones I cant do are Braodway Windmill, Outcrop Crest and The Great Ridge. Those are tough.

yeah i haven't been trying to 3 star them but i'm really struggling with the drift events, if i use the hand brake i can get points (not loads, but still points) but pretty much always spin out, so sometimes fail the events, not using the hand brake i can slide but barely get any points. not too fussed about doing them mind - i like how you can pretty much do anything you want to level up in this. in fact i'm struggling to catch any slides at all, might be due to a setting or something.

Some of the billboards are in really stupid places...😂

 

I was shit at drifting in the 3rd game and I fully expect that to continue in this one, so far I've only done drifting if it's involved in the Live Forzathon Events...it's those events that'll put a halt to the "3 star all PR events" achievement.

I was very excited to get the E-Type Jag but it controls and speeds like shit compared to my Impreza though I’ve just got a couple of Lambos, which makes me think of this:

Do you get flying machines or bikes in this?

There’s at least one billboard that’s trapped in a tight space that all my cars are too big to get in, and there’s one on top of a roof of a church and there doesn’t seem to be a ramp anywhere nearby.

don't think there are any bikes/flying things.

Spoiler

yeah i've seen those two too, i've not got them either but, one of the barn finds is a tiny car so i think that will get one of them. and i did a forzathon live thing once that put a ramp next to the church, but i missed the sign, hopefully theres a way of making the ramp permanent or something.

Ford Escort RS ftw! Did The Great Ridge danger sign first go with it, needed 274m but jumped an impressive 297 😎

 

Ford Escort RD ftl! Wasn't cutting the mustard on the Broadway Windmill jump so i switched to my Koenigsegg Agara RS and cleared the jump distance by 100 metres! 466m biatch.

 

Agera S for the Outcrop Jump too, no probs. That's 3 stars on all the Danger Jumps. Speed Trap's next.

There’s something oddly satisfying finishing a serious mission and having my character dressed in a big chicken outfit doing the clown dance.

Experienced my first #FORZATHON last night. 

 

It was pretty cool and also slightly underwhelming at the same time. The aspect of everyone on the map coming together and racing to the new objective on the map is just so cool to see and experience but repeating the same activity over and over - speed traps, danger signs etc. - until your Group Score is enough to move onto the next objective wasn't exactly scintillating. I'd definitely do another when ever it pops up though, it's fun enough to offer a nice distraction every now and again.

 

I bought my first car last night too - a Lancia Stratos - to compete in the Classic Rally championship. This was the first one I'd seen on the map and I wasn't honestly sure whether they were still going to be in the game or not, but pleased that they are.

 

I also did the Halo showcase event last night which was cool, they had a similar event in FH3 but this was on a much larger scale and featured a lot more bombast which was nice to see. Think I did another showcase event involving dirt bikes too.

 

Is everyone else swimming in cash too by the way? I'm only 6 hours in and had 2 million credits - until I spent 550K on the Stratos - I seem to be getting a lot more cash and rewards from the wheel-spins and super wheel-spins then I got from FH3, I think towards the end of my time with 3 I had 2 million credits and I've already accumulated that much here. Not that I'm complaining, it's cool they give you lots of cash quite quickly so you can buy some nice cars pretty early in.

I'm sitting at around 2 million at the minute too, I'd guess I've earned around 3 million so far though... I've splurged on a few cars and upgrade blueprints. You need 15 million to buy Edinburgh Castle (for an achievement... Yeah yeah) so a fair amount of saving to go yet.

 

This game has also made me realise that I quite like the music by Chvrches... Not sure if that's good or bad at the minute.🤣

The drift events are killing me. I’ve got at least 2 stars on all of them, 3 stars on a few but I’m giving up on them for now. I’ve been playing with manual gears and with stability and traction off, I’ve been trying what the experts say but damn some of those 3 star scores are just out of my reach.

 

There’s so much to do in this game! I’m constantly distracted by a road I haven’t driven down or a board I haven’t smashed, then a Forzathon pops up or I’m right on a race event that seems silly not to do when I’m here.

 

33 hours in, Level 90 I think and I’m still really enjoying it. God bless this series.

I actually found the list of names you can choose in game buried away in the options earlier, there's a list for names and a separate list for nicknames (which is where Brah came from @Hendo)... It obviously scrapes the name from somewhere when you first boot it up but you can change it later if you wish... And there's quite a few options.

 

No Nag unfortunately though.

Had the day off yesterday so I pretty much just played this all day. 

 

Started playing online, I’m so much better at racing than I used to be. It’s seems like it’s just a matter of patience to get a good finishing position. Just race steady and eventually someone is too eager on a corner or too aggressive in overtaking someone else.

 

Ive done all the Horizon Stories now. That fucking Laracer who is supposed to be a YouTube streamer is an annoying cunt. When she sung ‘Daytona’ I nearly jumped out of my window, it’s cringe as fuck. However, I enjoyed most of the challenges set in all four stories, that northern director that sounds like Sean Bean made me laugh, him and Robert the welsh guy who hosts drift club are the only decent voice actors in the whole game.

 

Think I was Level 115 by the time I was done. I’d driven down 529/531 roads when the achievement for driving down all roads popped. I can’t find those last two roads for shit so I’m wondering if they are even there.

 

Top Tips: If you’re struggling to find new roads -

 

Turn off all map icons by pressing RB on the map screen and select “All”, this will deselect all map icons.

 

Turn the brightness on your TV up and the colour down. You need just enough colour to distinguish between the white and orange roads but the undriven roads that are grey should really stand out.

Been plugging away at this over the weekend, still not put an awful lot of time into it but I’ve made some progress. Think I’m level 42 or something.

 

I unlocked the final(?) event in the dirt series and have been making progress everywhere else, done about 4 #FORZATHON’s too.

 

The game has definitely grown on me a lot and I’m swimming in cash - bought a few houses last night - but I’ve still not had the same euphoric levels of of amazement that I had with FH3.

 

I think the music is the biggest miss for me. Some of the songs in FH3 I absolutely adored and racing to them was a delight but there’s not really one track like that here, I usually keep Hospital on.

 

With the way the game has shifted to a live service mode I’m not sure I need that euphoric level of amazement here. There’s just so much to keep you occupied and I believe there’s no real ‘end’ this time around so I’ll probably just keep plugging away on this until BFV hits in November.

 

The live championship series are a great addition, I did my first co-op one the other night and it was pure joy. I was a bit gutted I couldn’t take part in the Skyfall one as I was unable to buy the correct car for the job.

 

I cannot find out how to get Photo mode up by the way 😂  I tried using drone mode but I don’t think that’s it. How are you guys doing it?

 

Also, it appears I’ve not got you on XBL @Nag and it won’t let me add you for some reason, so can you send me an FR over when you’re next on? Ta 👍

Also what's you GT? DisturbedSwan?

Ok cheers, I’ll give that a go tonight, not tried that.

 

And yeah it’s DisturbedSwan 🙂
