Forza Horizon 4 Developers Showcase British winter, New Details About Car Mastery And More

Microsoft started off E3 2018 with a bang, taking the wraps off of the latest entry in its Forza series called Forza Horizon 4. The game takes place in Britain and features numerous enhancements over its predecessor. A week ago, the developers revealed new details about the game, focusing on the Autumn season in the game, which came right after they’d talked about Summer, too. During this week’s livestream, the developers showcased the winter season in the game, and also provided new details about car mastery, the season, more.

The footage showcases the British winter in all its glory. The map completely changes and more areas become accessible. For example, a once-turbulent lake freezes over, allowing certain cars to drive over it. Hopefully a lot of new areas will be accessible when the season changes. There should be some limitations on what cars can drive on ice because some vehicles are so heavy that they would just sink. When seasons are about to change in the game, a countdown timer will start, and a short cut-scene will then play while the season is changing. You can also check out the winter map for the game below, which the developers had shared.

We also learn that every single car in the game will have its own skill tree with up to 16 perks, and you can later sell your levelled-up car at the Auction House for a great price. Players can use the Forzathon Shop to buy any items they need using Forzathon points only, as real money can’t be used to buy items here. Furthermore, the Forzathon Shop won’t include any exclusive items.

You can check out the developers discussing the winter season below, along with the image of the winter map.

Forza Horizon 4 is set to launch on October 2, 2018 for $59.99. If you pick up the Forza Horizon 4: Ultimate Edition, you can get early access starting on September 28. Forza Horizon 4 will also be available as part of the Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC through Xbox Play Anywhere.
