Forza Horizon 4 Leak Reveals Halo's Warthog and Possible Themed Event

Forza Horizon 4 Leak Reveals Halo's Warthog and Possible Themed Event

Still awaiting a leak that shows the entirety of PGR2 is in Forza Horizon 4.

Forza Horizon 4, Playground Games' upcoming Xbox One and PC open-world racer for Microsoft, appears to include the Warthog from the Halo franchise. This isn't the first time the series has featured the iconic vehicle, but this time it seems like there is a little more than just the car itself.

In a leak on Imgur, highlighted on Reddit, a huge amount of Forza Horizon 4 art and screens were put online. While a lot of these show off vehicle collections (1960s and 1970s collections, for example) and events, one image stood out: the Warthog from Halo. Not only does this more or less confirm the vehicle's inclusion in Forza Horizon 4, but the image suggests that the game will be tweaked visually to more closely resemble Halo.

With a warthog on a beach, a Halo ring, and a Covenant ship, it doesn't take a Halo scientist to jump to the conclusion that a Silent Cartographer themed event or race is going to be in Forza Horizon 4. This follows the inclusion of the Warthog in Forza Horizon 3.

Adding fuel to the Scarab-sized fire is a Halo event icon, spotted by fans last month (via Eurogamer). The event icon found on the Forza Horizon 4 map is on a beach and seems to resemble the Pelican that drops Master Chief and a squad off in the much-loved level from the original Halo.

The Forza Horizon series features numerous Showcase Events in which you must try to outrun a special vehicle (helicopter, train, jet). Maybe the Halo event will see you attempting to drive a Warthog and beat the Pelican to the finish line.

A special themed event in Forza Horizon 4 is great, but unless every city from PGR2 is stitched together to form a Frankenstein's Monster style map, I'll never be happy. There's always DLC I guess. For more on FH4 ahead of its October 2 release date, check out our Forza Horizon 4 guide.

His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
