The Xbox One’s premier racing game is getting its own version of Battle Royale, with a new 72-player elimination mode.
If a puzzle game like Tetris can embrace Battle Royale then why not racing games as well? Or at least that’s what Forza Horizon 4 developer Playground Games thinks.
They’ve just announced a new 72-player elimination mode, called The Eliminator, will be going live in Forza Horizon 4 today – and it sounds pretty great.
You won’t be shooting anyone, obviously, but otherwise all the standard elements of a Battle Royale will be present, including the slowly shrinking area you play in and trying to hide from other players so you don’t get knocked out.
Your GPS will provide a set course to follow, but of course the danger is that you’ll be immediately shunted off by whatever pack of more aggressive players decide to use that.
According to Playground Games the idea was inspired by previous time-limited game events, where everyone tried to complete objects and get to specific areas as quickly as possible.
That and the fact that they’ve probably been playing a lot of Fortnite.
The announcement for The Eliminator comes at the same time as Playground confirm that Toyota will be returning to the series, starting with the addition of the 1998 Supra RZ today.
Forza Horizon 4 was released last autumn and up until this year alternated with Forza Motorsport so that you got a new Forza every year.
The upcoming Project Scarlett is no doubt the reason there hasn’t been a new one this year, although there has been a string of leaks suggesting that Forza Horizon 5 will be set in Asia.
But it does seem as if it will be Forza Motorsport 8 will be the next one, as the devs (not Playground Games but original developer Turn 10 Studios) have already been talking about working on new tyre and suspension systems in their latest monthly update.
