Forza Horizon 4 celebrated its second anniversary back in October, and the open-world racing game is still going strong. Developer Playground Games recently optimized the game for Microsoft’s new Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, and this week a new update is bringing Super7, a new free game mode focused on 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,” explained Mike Brown, Creative Director of Forza Horizon at Playground Games
This new Super7 mode is available on all platforms and will let players share their custom challenges with their friends as well as the entire Horizon community. Following the addition of the new “Eliminator" Battle Royale mode a year ago, it’s great to see the game still getting new free content two years after its release.
Interestingly, the official Forza Horizon Twitter account just teased an upcoming announcement at The Game Awards Ceremony this Thursday. The tweet suggests this could be about a Cyberpunk 2077 cross-over, though many fans are probably hoping to see a reveal of Forza Horizon 5. Last month, VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb said in the Xbox Empire podcast (via VGC) that Forza Horizon 5 may ship as soon as next year before Turn 10's next Forza Motorsport game is fully baked.

We'll see what happens, though Xbox marketing exec Aaron Greenberg just asked Xbox fans to not get overly excited about Xbox announcements during The Game Awards. "While we have a couple moments in the show, I would dial expectations way down versus speculation I am seeing, especially how big we went last year," Greenberg wrote on Twitter.
