Forza Horizon 4 is lauded as one of the best racing games available on the market. Since its release in 2018, the game has earned fans worldwide due to its open-world format, seemingly endless in-game activities, and vast list of licensed vehicles including hypercars like the McLaren Senna, Koenigsegg Agera, and more. The developers even added several full expansions to the game, one of which was Lego-themed and even included playable Speed Champions cars like the Bugatti Chiron. Additionally, its weekly “season” changes keep the game fresh by literally changing the environment.
Despite being one of the top racing games for the last three years, Forza Horizon 4 will soon be eclipsed by the next game in the series, Forza Horizon 5. With the new game set to release on November 9th, 2021, Playground Games (Horizon’s development team) is looking back on some notable player behavior in Forza Horizon 4.
10 Most Driven Cars In Forza Horizon 4
- 2006 Formula Drift #43 Dodge Viper SRT10
- 1968 Abarth 595 Esseesse
- 2005 BMW M3
- 2018 Ford #25 Mustang RTR
- 1998 Toyota Supra RZ
- 1993 Nissan 240SX SE
- 1997 Formula Drift #777 Nissan 240SX
- 1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata
- 1997 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec
- 1996 Formula Drift #232 Nissan 240SX
This list comes straight from the Forza Horizon 4 developer team via Twitter. We should also note that when they say “most driven,” they are referring to hours spent driving and not distance. As you can see, four out of the 10 vehicles on the list are drift cars. That could be an indicator that players seem to enjoy drifting the most among everything you can do in Forza Horizon 4.
When thinking about the gameplay mechanics in Horizon 4, it makes sense why drifting would be among the most popular in-game activities. There is a “style points” system in place, and players can earn bonuses like in-game currency and cars when they accumulate points. Drifting is a great way to earn a lot of points in a short amount of time.
There is also the fact that drifting happens to be really fun in Forza games. There are entire groups and in-game clubs of players who play Forza Horizon 4 just to go drifting.
Forza Horizon 5 is coming soon
With Forza Horizon 5 set to release about a month and a half from the time this article is published, we can’t help but wonder if the same types of cars will be as popular in the new game. Forza Horizon 5 is set to take place in Mexico, which has a very diverse selection of terrains and many opportunities for off-roading.
The newly revealed map shows plenty of desert plains, mountain roads, and forests which would be a perfect playground for off-road trucks and SUVs like the Ford Bronco. The Cybertruck might just join in on the fun as well; who knows? Wouldn’t it be funny if the Cybertruck came out in Forza Horizon 5 before its release in real life?
You better believe we’ll have something to say if that ends up being the case. For now, we would recommend getting as much Forza Horizon 4 game time in as possible before Forza Horizon 5 releases next month.
