Update 7, dubbed Festival Playlist and also known as Series 7, is the 7th major content update for Forza Horizon 4 released on March 12, 2019.

The update introduces a new interface known as Festival Playlist that summarizes all singleplayer and multiplayer activities of each seasons of a series, allowing players to conveniently track their series progress and discover seasonal unlocks.[1]

A majority of seasonal car rewards are unlocked after progressing 50% or 80% of a Season, although there are also two Series Completion Bonus cars that are unlocked depending on the player's progress across the entire series.

Several Showcase events have also been made available in different seasons as "Showcase Remixes." Players must complete the original corresponding events before being able to play their Showcase Remix counterparts.

It also introduced 18 new Achievements that include challenges for game features that were added in previous updates.

This is an all-new way to play!

      • We’ve added a twist to two of our most popular Showcase Events! For a limited time only during Series 7, you’ll be able to race against the Flying Scotsman in summer while driving a Ford Anglia in our NINE & THREE QUARTERS Showcase Remix, and veterans of UNSC Fleetcom’s Halo Experience can find a new challenge as the training exercise is re-run in winter, called the ASSAULT ON THE CONTROL ROOM Showcase Remix. You’ll need to complete the regular Showcases first to unlock the remixed versions.
