The brand spanking new Super7 mode has just launched in Forza Horizon 4. The mode will be available on December 8th, 2020 but Xbox gave me access to Super7 about a week early.
I’m going to cover what Super7 Mode is and my impressions of it after going hands on for a little while. If you want to watch my preview of Super7 then check out the video below. If you’d rather read then just keep scrolling!

What is Super7 Mode?
If I had to describe Super7 in a nutshell I would say it’s like combining Rivals mode and Mario Maker into one big community generated challenge mode.
There are three main aspects that make up Super7
The first is the Challenge Creator. In the Challenge Creator players can create a challenge based on speed, air time, skill points, drifting, and more.
The creators can decide what car is used, set a route or location, the time of day, the weather, and even what music is played during the challenge.
To elevate things further, creators can enter the Blueprint Builder which allows creators to add barriers, ramps, stunt obstacles, and scenery which even includes a freakin’ T-Rex. Because why not?
Once a player finishes creating their challenge they can publish it as a “challenge card” which will pop up on the open world map at the location that the challenge is set to. The challenge creator then sets a target score by completing their own challenge.
Challenges are then shared with friends and the community on the open world map and in freeroam mode.
The real fun comes from the fact that players can be deceptive with their challenge names and descriptions. The truth is players will really have no idea what they’re in for until they’ve already entered the challenge which can make for some incredible opportunities to troll people.
Challenge cards can be browsed in their own menu and are curated by picks from the Playground Games studio, highest rated, or challenges created by your friends.
The Horizon Super7 Challenge
In the namesake mode, the player has to complete seven random challenge cards from the community. They have no idea what each challenge will be until it starts. If the player can complete all 7 challenges in a row they’ll get exclusive rewards.
The first thing I did was jump right into the seven card challenge. And let me just say, there are some real diabolical people out there! Some of the creators made their challenges look easy when in reality they were worse than something jigsaw would come up with in a SAW movie. I’m talking level 10 trolling here.
The thing is, I still kept at it. Even though some challenges took me multiple tries and drove me up the wall, the feeling of accomplishment after completing some of the more difficult challenge cards made it all worth it.
I’m sure it would have been also very entertaining for other people if they got to watch me have rage-spasms at some of the stuff I was going through while playing.
Believe me when I tell you that Super7 mode will be perfect for streaming. In fact, I might do that myself in the near future.

Challenge Creator + Blueprint Builder
Each challenge created results in a Challenge Card, where you set a target score, then share your custom challenge with a friend or the entire Horizon community. Challenge Cards consist of custom racing and skill-based challenges that can be discovered as you’re driving around in Freeroam or appear as part of the Super7.
You’ll be able to enhance your challenges with Blueprint Builder, a first in Forza history, that lets you place stunts, structures, and scenery in your challenge – whatever you want, wherever you want. If you prefer, your challenge can even be as leisurely and scenic as an afternoon drive. You can tune the season, weather, time of day, and the music to create the perfect experience.
