Forza Horizon 2 Dev Talks Social Gaming, Reveals More Cars

As the release of Forza Horizon 2 nears, we’re going to see more and more about it.

Late last week, the team presented their vision for social gaming with the video above. Developer Playground Games wants to take out every roadblock between single and multiplayer without actually forcing you to unite them. You can, as in Forza Motorsport 5, compete asynchronously with drivatars, or you can jump online easily and compete in any number of modes or just hang out and drive around the countryside.

Car meets and 1000-member clubs as well as designated multiplayer zones add some organization to the mix, but are never forced.

Additionally, a few more of the game’s 200-plus cars were revealed, including the 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter, the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe, the 1998 Toyota Supra RZ, the 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II, and the Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, among others.

Forza Horizon 2 is set to release for Xbox One on September 30, with a similar but independently developed version hitting the Xbox 360 on the same day.
