Forza Horizon 4 is an upcoming open world racing video game developed by Playground Games and published by Microsoft Studios.[1] It will be released on 2 October 2018 on Xbox One and Microsoft Windows after being announced at Xbox's E3 2018 conference.[2][3] The game will be set in a fictionalised representation of the United Kingdom.[1][2][3] It is the fourth Forza Horizon title and eleventh instalment in the Forza series.

Gameplay[edit]

Forza Horizon 4 features over 450 licensed cars. It includes a route creator which enables players to create their own races.[4] The game takes place in a synchronised shared world, compared to the AI-driven Drivatars from its predecessors, with each server supporting up to 72 players.[5] The game is also playable in offline mode.[5]

Players have the opportunity to buy properties from across the map, which unlock new items and gameplay perks.[6] The game features a dynamic weather system that also depicts the change of seasons. The game world changes depending on the season: for example, lakes will freeze over in winter and allow players the ability to explore regions of the game world that would be inaccessible during other seasons.[2][3][4] The seasons are fixed across the game's servers, meaning that all players will experience the same conditions at the same time.[6]

Playground Games have also announced plans for two expansion packs for the game.[6]

Due to licensing issues, no cars from Mitsubishi, Toyota (with the exception of some racing/offroad trucks) or Lexus will be featured in the game.[7]
