Game: Forza Horizon 4

Platform: PC, XBox One

Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Release Date: 02/10/2018

The Route Creator tool is now available for Forza Horizon 4, as part of the open world racing game’s latest update.

One of the most requested features for any Forza Horizon game, the Route Creator lets players create their own custom singleplayer race courses using the game’s ‘Blueprint’ feature.

Courses created in the Route Creator will be limited to 40 miles in length, and the routes can only use the starting points of the game’s Asphalt, Dirt or Cross-Country events.

In addition to the Route Creator, Forza Horizon 4’s new update introduces a new ‘Horizon Story’ set of challenges.

Accessible when the player reaches level 50, the 10 ‘British Racing Green’ missions allow players to briefly sample 20 of the game’s UK-derived cars, as part of a premise that “celebrates a century of British automotive excellence”.

Complementing the content additions are an array of fixes and refinements – ranging from the ability to quit Team Adventure online multiplayer events, to improving how the force feedback transmits the effects of understeer to the player.
