Fortnite players were treated to a driving spectacle on Season 3’s release, with vehicles galore showing up in the promotional video. Soon, those cars will be available to players, with assets for four new vehicles being added in v13.20.

While the tides surrounding the Season 3 Fortnite map don’t scream amazing driving conditions, it won’t be long until the water recedes. When that happens, the new map will become a driver’s paradise.

In anticipation of the release of four new land vehicles in Fortnite, Epic has started teasing players in-game. First, it was the promo video. Then, it was in-game stats. Now, posters will start popping up around the map promoting the cars.

Plenty of vehicles were added in Fortnite Season 3.

Posters for the four vehicles were found in the game’s files after the release of v13.20. While it’s not the first time players have seen the cars themselves, it’s a hint they are going to be released soon.

The Bear is a bright orange pickup, seen driving through the mountains on the poster. The mudflap is a massive semi-trailer, trucking through the desert.

The Prevalent is a much more sleek city sedan, and it’s shown as that in the in-game poster, driving past a bustling skyline littered with palm trees. The Whiplash is your typical speeder, with the racing stripes to obviously make it go faster.

The cars all featured in the promo video, but were absent when v13.00 dropped. However, players will likely not have to wait much longer to try them out for themselves.

These four vehicles aren’t the only ones added to Fortnite in Season 3. A loot shark was added, giving players another way to traverse the oceans. There was also a police car, but that was replaced shortly after the start of the season.

Fortnite’s latest patch, v13.20, started introducing more of the content we saw in the Season 3 teasers.

The long-awaited Flare Gun finally made its entry, dozens of cosmetics were added, and hints of a Captain America skin for the 4th of July were added too.

There’s no set date for when the new cars should be arriving in Fortnite. While no actual in-game assets of the vehicles themselves have been discovered, it shouldn’t be long until they do pop up.

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.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

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.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

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 car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

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.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
  • 1970 Porsche 914/6
  • 2018 Honda Civic Type R
  • 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo
  • 2001 TVR Tuscan S
