Today, along with the launch of Forza Horizon 4’s demo, we’re thrilled to open up a new door to accrue in-game “influence” on Forza Horizon 4 through Mixer. Influence is a brand new way to progress through Forza Horizon 4 and enables Forza fans to progress no matter how they play the game including exploring, racing, performing stunts, photography, creating designs and blueprints and now – streaming on Mixer and watching your favorite Forza Horizon 4 Mixer streams!
Earning influence is easy. All you need to do is link your Microsoft Account (MSA) associated with your Xbox Gamertag to your Mixer Account, log-in, and you’re ready to start earning.
Once your accounts are linked, you’ll automatically start earning influence every 5-minutes you spend watching your favorite Forza Horizon 4 Mixer streamers tear up the track. If you’re a broadcaster, we’ve got you covered too! Every 2-minutes you spend streaming Forza Horizon 4 on Mixer you’ll get some Influence of your own, with bonuses awarded for larger viewing audiences. You’ll notice a small ribbon badge located near the game title on Mixer, which indicates that the stream is eligible for earning in-game influence.
Once you’re in-game, you can find your influence in the Mixer section of the “Horizon Life” menu. Notably, you’ll have to spend a small amount of time unlocking the “Mixer” thread in the campaign – but once you do, all the influence you’ve accrued will be waiting for you! Want to get a jumpstart on earning Influence? Tune into your favorite Forza Horizon 4 Mixer streamers during the demo period to start prepping for your “Horizon Life” before the October 2 launch.
