Forza Horizon 4 Gets a Top Gear Themed Story, For Free

By Sam Quirke,
Given Forza's long-term partnership with Top Gear in its various iterations, it's not surprising that the Horizon Festival set in the UK would feature the current hosts of the slapstick motoring show. Forza Horizon 4 is now playing host to the Stig and Chris Harris — the latter now hosting the veteran TV show with cricketer Freddie Flintoff and comedian Paddy McGuinness. This new Horizon Story is available now, for free.

Top Gear Forza Horizon 4

Stig and Chris' Horizon story spans seven chapters of new gameplay, and completing the tale will get players an "I am the Stig" T-shirt, the actual Stig outfit, the Top Gear Project E-AT car and the Top Gear Track-tor. Sadly, there's no achievements involved.

    It's not Top Gear unless it's Clarkson, May, or Hammond.

    The 'new' Top Gear is a bloody joke.

    Have to say I 100% disagree. The new lineup are the best in a long time. There was Top Gear before Clarkson Hammond and May and there's Top Gear after.

    I don’t mind the new host’s but it’s not the same. It feels too much like they’re still trying to recreate Clarkson, May and Hammond.

    I like Chris Harris but the other guys? Meh. And even The Grand Tour has far outstayed its welcome. It's the same old schtick that got old in the waning seasons of the Clarkson Top Gear. Take some cars, destroy them, then act like you didn't expect that to happen, repeat for X episodes...yawn. I enjoy James May's science and tinkering videos FAR more than anything The Grand Tour has pooed out.

    It's not Top Gear. Top Gear has died.

    No Achievement(s)? What's the point? C'mon Forza - you know better by now.

    It was fun and they finally fixed the Star card thing. Getting better each update smile
    Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track. Check me out on Mixer!

    This is a welcome addition to fh4.

    The top gear show itelf has now descended into puerile humour not befitting it’s status. It must be going after the viewer that is not yet of the legal age to drive a car....or moped!

    I am glad that this fh4 update features Chris Harris and not the other two “men”. He is the only remaining element of the show with any motoring kudos.

    It was a sad day when Matt le blanc left the show...he was a brilliant presenter with just the right amount of humour and irreverence.

    I am astonished that chis Harris is still hanging around this show...he must be under contract for the whole season or something. Next season hope will be gone and we will be left with the new goon show.

    Next week on top gear.......Andrew/Freddie and paddy don clown noses and see how many elephants they can fit in the back of a mini clubman.

    And I like Turkish delight too. A lot.

    Meanwhile Clarkson, May and Hammond are trying to recreate Top Gear over on Amazon Prime! It's all re-hash at the end of the day.

    'Rubbish'

    I still watch both shows, usually skipping the celebrity part and often the actual car reviews. What I find most annoying is how scripted both are, making the seemingly spontaneous comments and banter inane and obvious.
