James Allen On June 10, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 has been officially announced by Microsoft Studios, ahead of the title's official release on October 2nd 2018.

Featuring a setting based on the landscape of Great Britain, Forza Horizon 4 is also the first Forza Horizon game to feature a truly dynamic open-world environment - with weather and terrain conditions being altered by a new seasons-based weather system.

Forza Horizon 4 will contain over 450 cars from over 100 different manufacturers from launch, with the lineup being headlined by the McLaren Senna cover car. As well as being Forza Horizon 4's star vehicle, the McLaren Senna will also be making its racing game debut in the upcoming open-world title.

The British theme extends to other cars as well: the Land Rover Defender 90 will be sharing box art space with the McLaren Senna, with other UK marques such as Ariel, Aston Martin, Austin, Jaguar and MG being represented in Forza Horizon 4's announcement trailer.

Forza Horizon 4 also promises to further expand on the co-operative elements seen in 2016's Forza Horizon 3. A shared world setup means players can automatically inhabit each other's worlds Test Drive Unlimited-style, with a new quick chat functonality meaning players can also communicate with each other more efficiently.

Other new features make their franchise debut in Forza Horizon 4 too. Players will now be able to install drifting suspension to their cars, and custom race routes can be created and shared using the game's Route Creator tool. Test Drive Unlimited-esque aspects like avatar personalisation and the ability to buy property "that unlocks new items and gameplay perks" will also be present in Forza Horizon 4



Though no performance specs were stated during the conference, it's expected that Forza Horizon 4 will run at 30 frames per second at a 1080p resolution on the Xbox One and Xbox One S, with 4K capabilities for Xbox One X users. The Xbox One X will also be able to run Forza Horizon 4 at 60 frames per second - a first for a Forza Horizon game on consoles.

Forza Horizon 4 is scheduled for a release on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC platforms on 2nd October 2018.
