Playground Games has done an excellent job with their spinoff racing series, Forza Horizon.
Online speed freaks have driven all over the digital roads within Colorado, Southern France, Northern Italy, and Australia. Every time a new entry arrives, racers are treated to an even bigger locale that’s tied to a particular domestic or international hub. This time around, Playground Games is allowing its fanbase to explore Great Britain. Along with an even larger variety of cars and the same great features seen in past entries, Forza Horizon 4 is also introducing something major to the race proceedings – Seasons.
Prepare for another round of high-speed racing, beautiful scenery, and top-notch automobiles with the upcoming release of Forza Horizon 4.

Forza Horizon 4 Reveal Trailer
Forza Horizon 4 Platforms
Forza Horizon 4 will be playable on Xbox One and PC (Microsoft Windows).
Forza Horizon 4 will place its online player base within a huge open-world full of racing events, Showcase challenges, and plenty of opportunities to take in the wonderful scenery surrounding them. The main location where all of the game’s action will take place is Playground Games’ take on Great Britain. The particular locations within Great Britain that will be open to players are Scotland, the Lake District of North West England, Edinburgh, and assorted villages within Cotswolds.
The main campaign (which can be completed solo or with a friend via co-op) is split up into four main seasons. Each season will impact events and activities in different ways – Playground Games will use this feature as a means of introducing new content to the game. Seasons will last one week in real-time and stick to a normal rotation of Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Online players will be impacted by each season change at the very same time.
Free-roaming AI-controlled Drivatars will now be replaced by human racers during online play. An online server is capable of hosting up to 72 players. If you’d rather enjoy Forza Horizon 4 offline and race among Drivatars, there’s an option to do so just that by activating the “Horizon Solo” mode. The Horizon Festival that everyone will participate in features “Horizon Stories” and “Horizon Life.”
Horizon Stories are challenges handed out by the main personalities behind the festival, while Horizon Life rewards players for completing non-racing tasks. Those assorted tasks include taking photographs, customizing vehicles, and live streaming your gameplay sessions on Mixer.
Along with all the aforementioned features mentioned above, there’s a host of other elements you can interact with. Refer to the list below to see what those other in-game facets are:
– Daily and Weekly Challenges
– Forzathon Live: an hourly-rotated online multiplayer mode that features up to 12 players. Every racer is put into a singular team setup and given timed challenges to complete. After successfully completing the first stage of a challenge, that team of players will be pushed to complete the second stage. Then after getting through that one, that same team will go on to compete in the third and final portion on an objective. At the end of those challenges, every participating player is awarded currency that can be put towards the rewards within the “Forzathon Shop.” The shop will be updated regularly and feature a rotating stock of exclusive cars, horns, emotes, etc.
