It's Official: Forza Horizon 4 Is Set In Britain, Roadworks Included

The fourth Forza Horizon instalment has been announced, and it'll feature a UK-inspired map with changeable weather

Remind me later

The rumours were correct: Forza Horizon 4 is indeed coming to the United Kingdom. Well, an idealised version of Britain: it’s all the pretty parts glued together (think the countryside, the coast and Edinburgh), minus the traffic. But, there will be potholes and roadworks. How realistic!

After the 2 October 2018 worldwide launch on Xbox One and Windows 10, gamers will be able to enjoy driving on our British Isles with changeable weather and seasons. You’ll have over 450 cars to choose from to tear around in the dry, in the wet, on mud, snow or ice “in a shared world where everyone experiences changes in time of day, weather and seasons together,” Turn 10 says. Oh, and yes, judging by the trailer (above), a hovercraft will be involved somehow, we suspect in a bonkers showcase event.

We don’t have a car list yet, but we do know that the cover cars will be the McLaren Senna and the 1997 Land Rover Defender 90. The Red Arrows are involved too, just to up the British ante a little further. God save the queen, etc.

Here are some of the other cars we can see in the trailer, the promo shots and gameplay videos:

  • Lamborghini Centenario
  • Pagani Huayra BC
  • Aston Martin Vulcan
  • VW Beetle
  • Ariel Nomad
  • Jaguar F-Type
  • MG B
  • Jeep Trailcat
  • Metro 6R4
  • Audi S1 Quattro
  • Bugatti Chiron
  • Austin FX4 Black Cab
  • Jaguar E-type
  • Austin Healey 100-6
  • Austin Healey Sprite
  • Toyota Tundra TRD Trophy Truck
  • RWB Porsche 911
  • BMW M2
  • Austin Mini
  • Porsche Cayman GT4
  • Dodge Viper ACR
Horizon 4 will feature over 450 cars spanning 100 different manufacturers

One big new feature is the ability to buy property (Test Drive Unlimited, is that you?), which “unlocks new items and gameplay perks”. There’s also a new ‘Route Creator’, allowing players to design and share their own races online.

It’ll be 4K and HDR ready, and there’s a 60 frames per second option for the Xbox One X. However you play it, though, it should be a stunning-looking game.

Unlike Horizon 3, the single player and multiplayer worlds will effectively be merged together, although offline play is still possible. Cooperative play features, and you’ll be able to join a ‘casual’ or ‘ranked’ team to spice things up.

Roll on October…
