Photographs taken at a GAME store in the UK point to September 12th for the launch of the trial, which, if accurate, will give players a chance to try Forza Horizon 3 for themselves before picking it up on September 27th.
The Tweet in question can be found at this link, but here are a couple of screencaps in case GAME take them down. The demo is advertised as a border for one of GAME's demonstration units, which can be seen running Asetto Corsa.
Considering the two separate photographs I'm willing to declare these leaks to be legit, and we'll probably get a formal announcement from Microsoft very soon. Given Forza Horizon 3's status as a Play Anywhere title, I would expect this 'free' demo to be available on both Xbox One and Windows 10.
Forza Horizon 3 takes the arcade racer franchise to the open-world Australian outback, complete with a wide array of new features and full cross-purchasing and cross-multiplayer between Xbox One and Windows 10. Richard Devine went hands-on with Forza Horizon 3 recently, make sure you check out his preview at the link below.
