Forza Horizon 4‘s “Series 6” update is here bringing with it another season change, brand new racing events, new Car Pass vehicles and more besides.

The Series 6 update introduces a new Story series (which is available at level 60) where you’ll be answering some questions such as “Just how fast can you drive an EB110 while NOT hitting anything?” or “How much can one hoon in a railyard?” – you know, life’s usual quandaries.

The update also adds the new Seasonal Playground Games feature which lets you drive up to an event, sign up, and get matched across the community. Playground Games has added some new prizes too including the Volkswagen Global Rallycross, the Hot Wheels Boneshaker, the Lotus 2-Eleven, and a Super Wheelspin to boot.

The Series 6 update also provides the very last set of cars coming to the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass. Included is the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, the 1994 Honda Prelude Si, the 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo, and the 2018 TVR Griffith.

The development team are also adding new reward cars with the 2001 TVR Tuscan S and two Quartz Regalia models, including the new-to-Forza Regalia Type D up for grabs.

You can view the full list of changes in the patch notes below.
