Racing games have always been the highlight of the gaming industry, ranging from flashy modified cars and unreal car-physics to professional motorsports themed, near to real life simulated car-physics. Over the years the most favored genre for gamers interested in racing games has been the professional motorsports racing simulator themed racing titles more than the fictional themed titles.

Forza Horizon 4, a new open world setting in the Forza series, has been revealed during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press briefing.

The game will be set in Britain UK, with dynamic seasons in a shared open world, running with a 60fps mode. You can seamlessly enter into co-op mode from within the game world, with seasons, various different times of day, and weather synced across the entirety of the community. For example, a lake would be frozen in winter just like it would be in real life.

Additional details have since surfaced from various YouTubers who got the hookup on some of the important information surrounding Forza Horizon 4. For instance, you’ll be able to create custom races anywhere with any rules as well as seasons with no limits, as well as take part in movie stunt driving modes, taxi services, and co-op Forzathon challenges. There are no more blueprints going forward, and servers will hold a max of 72 players. There’s a special map reveal on its way this Tuesday, so we’ll update you with additional information once we know more.

Playground games also added a new much-awaited feature which we always missed from the Test Drive Unlimited series in Forza franchise, the option to buy and settle properties. Now in Forza Horizon 4 players can buy houses across the map. Fancy a cozy spot in the Cotswolds? Maybe a more urban location in Edinburgh? According to the developers, that’s now an option.

Forza Horizon 4 has been specially optimized by the game developers to use the maximum power of the Xbox One X 4k firepower, which means it’ll look amazing when it’ll be released.

Forza Horizon 4 has been set to release on October 2nd for Xbox One and PC.
