Forza Horizon 4 Will Feature Stream-to-Win Option Through Mixer

Forza Horizon 4 Will Feature Stream-to-Win Option Through Mixer

Microsoft plans to give Mixer a big push with Forza Horizon 4.

Microsoft's Twitch rival, Mixer (formerly Beam), got a boost earlier this year when Rare's pirate adventure game Sea of Thieves launched. Now the firm is planning to give the streaming service another push, this time through Forza Horizon 4.

Speaking to ArsTechnica, Playground Games art director Benjamin Penrose said that players can "progress in the game just by painting, or tuning, or streaming your gameplay on Mixer."

While Penrose didn't elaborate on how exactly players can progress through streaming Forza Horizon 4 through Mixer, the game will notice when you're streaming. It would appear that when Forza Horizon 4 notices you're streaming the game through Mixer, it'll give out certain rewards, although we're not yet sure what these rewards are.

At the moment, all Xbox consoles feature a one button "stream to Mixer option". This can be manually changed to Twitch within the Xbox settings, but it definitely look like Microsoft is using Forza Horizon 4 to push Mixer numbers, just like it did with fellow first party title Sea of Thieves.
