Halloween may have passed us by, but it appears a few of the cars on Forza Motorsport 7 are being possessed by an unexplained force. The paranormal glitch forces the player into the pits and throws their car against the side of the track.

Forza players may need to take care over the Halloween season when racing round their favourite track. There appears to be a chance of paranormal activity occurring when approaching a pit stop in a race.

Despite seemingly being in control at first, a player is at the will of a possessed vehicle within an instant. One Reddit user, Kylex67, experienced the full force of the glitch as his car was forced into the pits.

The clip wastes no time in immediately showing the glitch, with Kylex67′s car veering left towards the upcoming pit stop.

The car then appears to almost come to a standstill whilst floating just above the ground. It’s then that the vehicle is thrown forward through the pit with a paranormal-like force, smashing into the tyres that guard the edge of the track.

The video continues with the possessed vehicle uncontrollably ramming into the side of the track. Finally, adding the icing on the cake for the clip, Kylex67’s car is pushed through the sidewall of the track with no resistance.

The commenters on the Reddit thread share a superstitious perspective of the clip, with one stating “you have been banished to the pit dimension” and another writing “Halloween update: your car is possessed.”

As funny as it would be for Playground Games to add paranormal glitches to the racing game for Halloween, I think it’s best these bugs are left for chance encounters.

Weird Forza Horizon 4 bug is giving players easy wins

Forza Horizon 4 is the game that keeps on delivering, but unfortunately, it’s not always good news. One player in particular seems to have found an unusual bug that is ‘eating’ AI players.

The open-world game of Forza Horizon 4 lets players live out their automotive dreams like never before. Between the streets of a virtual Edinburgh to a recreation of quaint English villages, players are able to tear around a miniaturized version of England in almost any car they can think of.

Unfortunately, sometimes the open-world game that players love fights back, causing unusual bugs and glitches. Thankfully, most are harmless, such as this unusual (and frankly hilarious) AI bug that was posted to Reddit.

The bug seems to occur when passing through a specific checkpoint during the race.

The bug itself appears to occur part-way through one of the biggest races in the game – the aptly-named ‘Goliath.’

Posting to the r/ForzaHorizon subreddit, player Jurassic_Gaming57 shows the bug in full effect, thanks to a screen-captured video.

On lap 3/10, the AI cars in front of the player pass through a checkpoint, then appear to simply vanish into thin air.

While this is weird enough on its own, what happens next is the strangest part of the bug.

In an unusual ‘black hole’ style situation, the cars that vanished then re-appear behind the player, seemingly caught in an endless cycle of looping back-and-forth through the checkpoint.

To make matters worse, it would seem this is not an isolated incident. According to Redditors in the comment section, other players have experienced similar situations, though this one does appear to be a strange example:

“Never seen it on a simple circuit like this. I’ve played some races with a lot of criss-cross paths that totally freak out the AI so there are only 1 or 2 on the lead lap.”

It turns out that the issue may be caused by the AI getting confused by the number of vehicle ‘paths’ on the circuit. Whatever it is, it’s certainly an easy win for this player.
