So folks who pre-ordered a copy of the open world multiplayer racer Forza Horizon 4 on PC got an unexpected surprise from the Windows 10 store; a variety of files that were automatically downloaded. And hiding among those files was a Forza Horizon 4 car list that a couple of intrepid Redditors unearthed.
Redditor daten-shi was among those who got the Windows 10 files in question and had a sniff around the data, unearthing a lengthy list of vehicles in a certain directory folder. Interestingly, this list of vehicles falls a bit above the promised 450 cars coming to the racer at launch.
A day later, another Redditor by the name of willbsn13 further broke down the list of files in significantly more detail, lining out the year, make and models of the vehicles in question. They further arranged the information into sub-categories of cars that are either new to the series or to current platforms, or cars that have been cut.
The Forza Motorsport Twitter account clarified that the Windows 10 files were, indeed, an error and that no further action is required for PC pre-orders. The game will automatically download in full upon release and those who received the phantom update can safely uninstall the files without risk if they so choose.
Forza Horizon 4 will arrive to Xbox One and Windows 10 on Tuesday, October 2nd.
Whoops! Someone somewhere pushed the wrong button! In any case, getting something of a sneak peek of what’s arriving to Forza Horizon 4 will certainly be a pleasant treat for those who are curious. All that said, we’d like to remind folks that feel strongly about the matter that source links will contain spoilers. And not the sort of spoilers that are attached to the back end of a car to reduce drag.
