Hilarious Forza Horizon 4 glitch sends cars into the stratosphere

Despite being two years old, Forza Horizon 4 still continues to throw up random glitches and bugs. Thankfully, most of them are hilarious one-off incidents, such as this glitch which occurred during a race. 

Most players of racing games such as Forza Horizon 4 have never considered blending the game with others such as Flight Simulator. However, the Mercedes-AMG G63 featured in the video below may have had a taster of what a collaboration between the two games may look like.

Glitches still regularly show up in Forza Horizon despite the game being around two years old. Many are posted to subreddits such as r/forza and r/forzahorizon, which is exactly how this video by user CheaterDust was discovered.

The glitch itself seems to have randomly occurred as a result of the G63 colliding with another car while in mid-air.

CheaterDust captured the screen recording while in a race, with his Mercedes X-Class taking on what appears to be the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Having drifted around a corner and through the checkpoint seen in the video, the two vehicles racing head-to-head enter into a rutted cross-country section of the circuit.

Once upon the rough terrain, the two vehicles gain ‘airtime’ from the jumps, and collide in mid-air. This seems to trigger a glitch in the game which sent the G63 flying into the air.

Since it was an AI vehicle there was no first-person footage from the G-Wagon of the incident, but even CheaterDust doesn’t seem to be able to believe what happened.

Having sent the G63 safely into the stratosphere, the Redditor keeps checking back to see if the car lands again. Eventually, after around six seconds, the Mercedes crashes back down to earth.

As if the damage from the glitch wasn’t enough to put the car out of the race, the G63 also dropped back several places in the race.

According to the poster, this glitch isn’t possible to replicate with another ‘human’ player, and can only happen to AI cars. Whether it is an issue with the physics engine or the AI engine specifically is unclear, but the results are undeniably hilarious.

The Rock gets literally stuck in a Porsche during filming disaster

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is certainly not a small man. Thanks to his intensive training routine and dedication to fitness, The Rock is one of the largest, most muscular actors in Hollywood. Unfortunately, that can be a disadvantage, as he discovered the hard way.

Filming for the upcoming blockbuster film Red Notice, Dwayne Johnson ran into a spot of bother while filming a car chase scene.

Part of the scene required ‘The Rock’ to fit into an all-new Porsche Taycan EV. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go according to plan for the big-name actor, requiring the whole scene to be redesigned.

Dwayne Johnson Red Notice filming disaster

According to DJ’s Instagram post, it isn’t the first time he’s got stuck in a high-performance car. “Guess who’s too big to fit in yet another sports car” is the first line of the post, suggesting he’s no stranger to this unusual situation.

Unfortunately, this time it’s more than simply a case of swapping cars. According to The Rock, him not being able to fit in the Taycan meant the entire filming sequence for the scene in question needed to be changed.

It could also prove to be a costly mistake. In the post, he mentions that the Taycan needed to be shipped “over to the States” suggesting it likely came straight from Porsche in Germany. Not only that, but this process would’ve taken a long time, and in Hollywood, time is money.

Thankfully, it wasn’t a total disaster. While he likened getting stuck in the Porsche to a “brown marshmallow getting shoved into a coin slot” the crew was able to think on their feet and get the shot they needed.

The crew also apparently found the humor in the situation, as after the “uncomfortable silence” while he tried to fit, they all burst into laughter according to Dwayne.

While it is not clear what the scene in the film is about, using a high-tech, all-electric Porsche Taycan is an unusual choice for a ‘star car.’ Clearly, the producers for Red Alert want to consider the environment too, without sacrificing speed or style.
