Forza Horizon 4 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 this year. What, you’re not surprised? Okay, me neither. But that’s not all we learned.
Developer Playground Games takes Forza‘s open-world racing fun to the United Kingdom this year, with the game spanning a huge chunk of nations like Scotland and England.
New to the series is the introduction of dynamic seasons. The game will transform the world from Spring to Summer to Fall to Winter as you play, freezing the water in Winter and making it driveable in the process. Spring brings rain, while leaves fall on the ground in fall.
We see in the trailer players driving through stone walls and chasing down sheep, suggesting the world is more dynamic and more open than ever before.
Director Ralph Fulton’s description of the game suggests it’ll be an always-online experience, dropping drivatars for other players and having you play in live servers instead of in offline-single player.
There are a few other details worth pulling from the trailer. The game is going to have a 60FPS mode, putting it at the same silky-smooth framerate as Forza Motorsport. It’ll also be joining State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves on Xbox Game Pass when it releases this fall.
And that part? It hits shelves and digital storefronts on October 2, 2018.
