Location and gameplay

The setting for this new installment of the Forza Horizon series is a beautiful part of Great Britain. You’ll be surrounded by farmlands, small villages, a variety of narrow and wide roads and so much more. There is a fair amount of the map to explore but the best part of the whole experience is the change of season. This feature shifts the driving experience in many different ways to test and challenge a player’s ability to adapt to different driving conditions.

Along with the dynamic weather system to keep things exciting, FH4 will also give players the opportunity to purchase properties around the map to unlock perks and items that will assist you in the game.

FH4 will also have a great soundtrack in the form of genre-specific radio stations. If none of the stations suit your tastes, there is a Spotify feature to give you the ability to add your own playlist into the game as its own radio station.


Vehicles range from trophy trucks to the most exclusive hypercars. 450 vehicles in total will be in the full version of the game covering most major manufacturers. Although, it has been reported that, due to licensing issues, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Lexus won’t be included.

As seen in previous Forza Horizon games, performance and visual modifications will be made available to differentiate your vehicle from challengers. Customisation options range from engine swaps to body and paint variations. It will also allow you to fine-tune your vehicle to suit your driving style and optimise performance accordingly.

The demo is available to download for free from the Microsoft Store for a limited time. Look out for the full release of Forza Horizon 4 on Xbox One and PC on October 2, 2018.
