Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available.
The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.
Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.
How to access Horizon Backstage
Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.
Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.
You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.
Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes
Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.
These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.
Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.
Horizon Backstage cars
The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.
