Big Forza Horizon 4 leak reveals Halo mission based on The Silent Cartographer

Volvo 343 guilty park.

A big Forza Horizon 4 leak has revealed the game has a mission inspired by famous Halo campaign level The Silent Cartographer.

Over the weekend, an image dump on Imgur (via reddit) included a raft of images of an early version of the game, showcasing themed events, cars and the Warthog from Halo.

Halo's Warthog is no stranger to the Forza series, but what's interesting about the image, below, is it shows the Warthog racing on a beach area, a Covenant spaceship in the sky and a Halo ring in the distance.

What appears to be the case is Forza Horizon 4 has a themed Halo event you can select on the world map. Eagle-eyed fans spotted the icon for this back in July. And yes, it's on the right-hand side of the map on a beachy area.

Back in June, when some people downloaded Forza Horizon 4 files over four months early, a data-mine revealed Halo-related files.

Fans reckon Forza Horizon 4's themed event will see players dropped onto an area of the map that's tweaked to look like Halo Combat Evolved's fourth mission, The Silent Cartographer. In this mission, you dropped onto a beachhead via a Pelican, grabbed a Warthog and drove around an island.

Funnily enough, ex-Bizarre Creations developer Stephen Cakebread (who, by the way, created the wonderful Geometry Wars), built a Silent Cartographer level for Project Gotham Racing 2 "for fun one evening" back in 2003.

Forza Horizon 4, by Playground Games, is due out 2nd October.
