Game is delisting on December 15th, so they're doing a sale:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1293830/Forza_Horizon_4/

All the DLC's are already delisted so you can only buy the Normal, Deluxe or Ultimate editions.
The game will also be playable on all platforms after delisting, but some achievements will be impossible to get!

BLOG POST: https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1293830/view/4185613970227394261?l=english

EDIT: Some DLC's are back and free to add:

oh god what why is it getting delisted (I assume it won't go the way of the crew and made unplayable after that date [DLC's already gone and festivals are going away but main game will still playable])

Great post though! Been waiting for Forza Horizon 4 in particular to drop in price

Yeah, just saw that lol.

Side note; I was looking for a comment on SG I think on this thread - https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/LN4za/what-games-have-been-on-your-wishlist-the-longest where someone said Forza Horizon 4 was on their wishlist for a long time but I can't find it... I swear I saw someone commenting about FH4 being on their wishlist. Maybe they edited their comment since I distinctly remember them putting more than 3 games from their wishlist when the thread was just asking for top 3 lol. Definitely can't find it again.

Majority of 4 and 5's content is the seasons/series content and that is probably going away.

Edit: yup. Such a shame, wish they had just unlocked it as content you could do on your own time instead. Very disappointing.

The seasonal content is just a weekly playlist of events with additional rewards. You should be able to do all of that outside of the seasons either way and get the rewards with ingame currency from showrooms and auction house.

There are star card objectives locked to seasonal events, achievements locked to seasonal events, and it was a good way to earn content/wheelspins as opposed to spending a ton of time grinding to fight in the auction house. That aside, secondary reasons to replay content with specific restrictions/conditions adds replayability.

They removed the crew from people's libraries sparking a big movement (Stop KIlling games) to get the EU and other countries government's to clarify if that is legal.

The Crew works no more. If you purchased it on steam, you still can install it but you can no more start it, as the game has been removed from everyone on Uplay. It was a slap to the face, as all players got a message starting uplay saying something like "we removed the crew 1 from you, why not continue the adventure with motorfest ?"

  • Can you run it offline ? No. Despite one player claimed that the code allowing potentially an offline mode was already there in the game files.
  • Also an ubisoft technician told me by phone some years ago that other games will be shut down at some point. He told me Steep for sure will be shut down (it's obvious it's a game as service). But i wouldn't be surprised Watch_Dogs1 and Slinter cell blacklist to be killed too. As Ubisoft already shut down Tom Clancy Hawx (that wasn't a game as service, there was a full solo campaign that can no more be played, ubisoft killed a single player campaign), and tried without success to kill Silent hunter 5 and an old Anno that the devs saved in-extremis with an offline patch.

It's really different, here after game is delisted, you'll still be able to play Forza for some years as the servers will still be up.
And even more maybe, can it still be run offline ? Players say that partly yes.

And Need for speed it's even more different because if the servers are shut down one day, the full game can be run offline, at least as long as EA app still run.

The Crew or The Crew 2? Like coley said, the servers are offline for The Crew (1) and it's been removed form uplay entirely (which I was not aware of). The reason why it's an issue with The Crew AND it will be a problem for both The Crew 2 (not yet offline) and The Crew Motorfest is those games have a constant internet connection requirement to play the singleplayer campaign. So once the servers go down, unless you have a workaround to host a dummy server or get the offline mode working, the game is just dead sadly enough. Forza Horizon 4 does not have any such requirement so it'll be fine.

Got my wheel, but haven't played too much, would this be good pick for it and if so which version?

Have you played a FH before? Which other racing games did you like so far?
FH is arcade, you can adjust a lot, but it's definitely easier than simulators. It's a car collector from the start (at least as long as the game as a service part and the player based auction house is still available), no "career". Not a real story either, just there's a festival and you are the new star, but there are special side activities with themes, also collaborations with Top Gear etc. Besides Lego DLC and some fancy clothing it has a more serious tone as NfS e.g., no "cool" characters or flashy effects.
I'd recommend to get the Ultimate, price difference isn't much right now and you get two addons, Lego is about a small Lego city with a few cars, but you can also use the usual cars. Fortune Island is mostly dirt terrain and bad weather conditions. Depending on playstyle 5-10 additional hours each.

They didn't state anything regarding other multiplayer functionalities yet, but it's possible that they might shutdown online services at some point later on. FH3 still has online servers, but it was broken on PC for a while and seems to be working now only with invitation (when I played it myself, it was broken, haven't tried yet again).

The other online achievements they will unlock just fine through playing the game. Only the festival will terminate complete and this one is the last till August 22. So we have 2 months to earn these 5 achievements. After that we wii be able to get 173 out of 178 achievements in steam. I will try to get these till 22 August buy they need time and patience.

By Xbox Live they mean an Xbox social account, not the subscription you need to play online on consoles.

Q: Do I need an Xbox Live account to play? A: Yes! You'll be asked to sign into Xbox Live the first time you install and launch Forza Horizon 4 from the Steam client.

Source: Forza FAQ. I suppose you'll get an Xbox login screen on startup, similar to the one Halo Infinite has. That's what I understand from that line.
I however do not have the game, wait for confirmation from someone who has the game if it's really an important point for you.

That's correct, it's just tied to the account, so you don't have another individual registration for the game. I don't think there's a workaround, but I've also never searched for that.

From this date forward we will offer different discounts for Forza Horizon 4, like the one currently active on Steam (at the time of publishing); we will also have a sale in the Xbox Store on 7/14. Please keep an eye out on our socials and different platforms to take advantage of future offers.

Currently it ends in 42h, so it won't be discounted again during the summer sale because of steam policy (unless maybe Microsoft is exempted).

3 weeks ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I don't think that's right since big sales (like summer or even spring sale) are an exception for a majority of steam's sale policy. The 42h you're seeing is also the hour that summer sale starts, which is common for more or less every sale that's on right now, they either choose the start date of the big sale (and refreshes it to the same price until the end of the big sale) or they extend it out to the end of summer sale. There may be a steam rule where they aren't allowed to have a discount for more than 2 weeks or something so that's why they end it then, and then the exception kicks in and they're allowed to do whatever during the summer sale.

But on a common sense standpoint, do you think that every game (indie or AAA) that's on discount right now won't be on sale during summer sale? The only game on my wishlist that's on sale that doesn't have a sale that ends in ~42 hours or less is Kingdom Hearts, which may be exempt due to squeanix and launch discount rules.

The official policy:

"Discounts cannot be run within 30 days of your prior discount, with the exception of Steam-wide seasonal events (Summer, Autumn, Winter and Springs sales)."

https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/marketing/discounts#7

So yeah they'll likely repeat the same sale or extend it. There's a small chance it'll be discounted higher or lower than the current sale, but it'll probably stay at 80% off.

Get Ultimate. No point in getting the standard, the price difference is very little and you're getting a lot more with Ultimate. Seriously doubt it'll go to 90% off. Forza games always get delisted and AFAIK they never get 90% discounts

After some browsing on slickdeals and the like, I wasn't able to see a 90% off for Forza Horizon 3 (didn't look at the previous delisted Forza game, which I believe is Forza 6 before Horizon 3?), the lowest it went was ~$8 USD (about 86% off) I believe but that's on gray market. The lowest it went officially was ~$10 USD (83% off) from Microsoft themselves 1 month before the game got delisted. It may get lower when it gets closed to delisted date but I don't know if 90% will happen.

The missing dlcs are not that great and do not affect achievements:

4) Forza Horizon 4: 1979 Talbot Sunbeam Lotus - 1 Car (Re-added)
5) Treasure Map

Forza Horizon 4 has 716 cars total (https://gamezo.gg/how-many-cars-are-in-forza-horizon-4/).
You will be missing 15 which is a small number and only 1 or 2 are high end cars.

UPDATE: Mitsubishi Car Pack and both Sunbeams have been added back to Steam. So 6 cars missing.
