Forza Horizon 4 Encore achievement fixed in new update, Playground says

By Sean Carey,

After almost a year, Playground Games has now rolled out a patch for Forza Horizon 4 that will fix the broken 'Encore?' achievement and finally allow players to 100% the game.

Forza Horizon 4 — one of the best games on Game Pass — has received a new update that should allow players to unlock the discontinued 'Encore?' achievement after completing the Festival Playlist.

Forza Horizon 4 update fixes Festival Playlist issue

Forza Horizon 4 content updates

The 'Encore?' achievement in Forza Horizon 4 is one of the game's hardest to unlock. It requires completing multiple activities across four weeks, and if you miss just one, you won't be able to unlock it, so you can understand why players were upset when they found out the achievement had stopped popping correctly in April last year despite meeting requirements.

Now, according to Forza Support, a new update has rolled out that will "allow players to earn 100% completion on the Festival Playlist from Series 60 onwards and unlock the 'Encore?' achievement. Looking at Forza Horizon 4's Festival Playlist history, it looks like the game is on its 58th Festival Playlist, and the 60th should start in around a month, so if you're yet to unlock 'Encore?' you'll probably want to jump on this then (and hope that it does actually unlock come this time in May). Unfortunately, the achievement will not unlock retroactively if you've completed a previous Festival Playlist.

Forza Horizon 4 update: March 7th patch notes
  • Essential maintenance updates on upcoming Festival Playlist content
  • Fixed an issue that prevented 100% playlist completion from Series 60 onwards. Please note this change won't retroactively affect previous Series completion.
Will you be returning to Forza Horizon 4 for this achievement? Let us know down in the comments.
