Mitsubishi returns to Forza, but two emotes disappear

Mitsubishi makes its long-anticipated return to the Forza franchise, with the latest update for Season 5 of Forza Horizon 4 coinciding with the launch of a free DLC pack containing seven cars, featuring the Lancer Evolution X.

But while new content has been added, some of the game has been taken away, with Playground Games deciding to phase out two of the game’s emotes; the ‘Carlton’ and the ‘Floss’.

The decision comes following recent news of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro, and Russell “Backpack Kid” Horning suing Epic Games over the unauthorised use of their respective dances as Fortnite emotes.

Mitsubishi is back

Mitsubishi was one of the most high-profile manufacturers to not be featured in Forza Horizon 4 at launch in any capacity, alongside Lexus.

In addition, Toyota only featured three off-road vehicles, leaving popular makes like the Supra, Corolla and 86 not available in the game, despite appearing in previous Forza titles.

The three manufacturers have been a staple of racing games over the past few decades, with all featuring in a number of other racing series, including Gran Turismo, Need for Speed and many more.

Yet, for some reason, they were all notably absent from the game when the full list of cars was unveiled.

The cars included in the free Mitsubishi car pack are:

  • 1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR4
  • 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX
  • 1997 Mitsubishi GTO
  • 1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI GSR
  • 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII MR
  • 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR
  • 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR

Also coming to the game is a Free For All Adventure, available in either Ranked or Unranked format, as well as a new ‘Isha’s Taxis’ story where you can win a customised Austin FX4 taxi cab for completing all 10 missions.

Are you excited to see Mitsubishi back in the game?

Which of these vehicles are you going to drive first?

The Evo VI is my favourite car of all time, so expect to see me driving it a lot. Maybe I’ll see you in a Free For All Online Adventure playlist.
