Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best Xbox games in years and it just keeps getting better. Playground Games has supported it far beyond the treatment these games usually get — that might be a pleasant byproduct of being an Xbox Game Pass standout — with a couple major expansions, a free battle royale mode, a bunch of big title updates, and weekly content updates.
Tomorrow, it gets a little wackier and a lot more dangerous. Forza Horizon 4 will receive a new game mode called Super7 that places floating out-of-place ramps all over England. Check out the trailer above to get an idea of how it looks.
Here’s the description from the Forza forums: Introducing the Horizon Super7, an all-new game mode that celebrates community-created challenges. Create individual challenges based on drift, speed, air, and more. Then, when choosing to play Super7, seven randomly selected challenges appear, with each being a total surprise. If you can win all seven challenges in a row, you’ll get your hands on an exclusive reward. You’ll be able to enhance your challenges with Blueprint Builder, a first in Forza history, that lets you place stunts, structures, and scenery in your challenge — whatever you want, wherever you want.”
So, it’s part stunt extravaganza and part level editor. And part infuriating randomness when you need to knock out seven challenges consecutively with no way to practice them. It’s also worth noting that this isn’t a PvP mode. Super7 seems to be strictly singleplayer (aside from the fact that you’re playing other people’s creations). You don’t need to compete with other players while trying to knock out these stunts.
It all arrives December 8 as part of a free update. Playground gets a little closer to its vision of turning England into an amusement park.
