More On: Forza Horizon 4

It looks like the first free update for Forza Horizon 4 in inbound, with a scheduled release on 10/25/18. Unlike prior releases since launch that have focused on bug fixes, this one offers a couple of content updates as well as a slew of additional patches, predominately impacting cross-platform play.  The updated content is a new Route Creator and Horizon Story, both of which should give the game some additional play time for those that have worked through the base story line. Listed below (and originally found on the Forza Official Website) is a lit of all the new features and bug fixes that are coming.  

Route Creator
This update adds the Route Creator to Forza Horizon 4. Create custom routes of up to 40 miles from any Asphalt, Dirt or Cross-Country Event starting location. Draw the custom route by driving your car, and place checkpoints anywhere you want to. Blueprint Creator has been updated to allow you to use custom routes.

New Horizon Story
This update adds a new Horizon Story to Forza Horizon 4 called 'British Racing Green', which explores a century of cars built in Britain. Access the story in Broadway by reaching Level 50, and unlock a new quick chat phrase, a new unique clothing item, and the classic Bentley 8 Litre.
