A Community-wide event will begin and end with the Series 4 of the Festival Playlist and this event is also called the ‘HORIZON WORLD CUP.’ The event is a competition between different countries and the cars hailing from those countries. Players can en route to their favorite country by driving cars from those locations in Seasonal Championships, Playground Games, and more.

  • The countries participating in the Horizon World Cup include France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America

  • Buggy and the Best is getting remixed with a new car and music, and is slightly more difficult
  • On a Wing and a Prayer is getting remixed with a new car, music, and time of day, as well as differences in the world

Other Changes and Additions

There are a huge number of great changes and addition which we are going to witness in the Series 4 Festival Playlist update, including:

  • New Variety Items and Car Horns, including a gifted race suit for each country competing in the Horizon World Cup
  • All dialogues will now be available in Simplified Chinese voiceover even
  • Editable Route and Event Blueprints accessible in Event lab
  • A ton of bug fixes for a variety of issues including Accolades, Festival Playlist changes, Horizon Open, and more

What can we expect from Forza Horizon 5 Series 5?

Playground Games also said some of what players can expect from the next Festival Playlist that is Series 5. This includes-

  • ASL & BSL interpretation support
  • A focus on PR Stunts instead of racing

4. Conclusion

Seeing about FH5 Series 4 is giving me goosebumps.

Street Racing, Horizon World Cup, my favorite Porshe 911 GT3, and many more. I just can’t hold the excitement for a much longer time. I will start playing Series 4 right away.
