Reaching level 80 will unlock the final piece of the Omega skin armor.

For the first time in the series Forza Horizon 4 is a shared world game. It’s a big change, and one which Playground Games creative director Ralph Fulton describes as a “huge paradigm shift.” It’s also a potentially a concerning one for some but, as it’s still optional, it probably shouldn’t be.
