Microsoft has released the playable demo of Forza Horizon 3, the upcoming open-world racing game from developers Playground Games and Turn 10 Studios. The demo is just for the Xbox One version, but the full game is coming to both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
The official Forza Motorsport site has the details on what's included in the demo:
Your tour Down Under begins in classic Horizon fashion – with beautiful scenery, great driving roads, and awesome vehicles. From the moment the action begins, you are unmistakably in Australia, with all of its awe-inspiring beauty and tremendous environmental diversity. You'll blast along ocean-side roads, and race on the beach alongside the famed Twelve Apostles landmarks. You'll grab ludicrous air off of danger sign jumps buried deep in the Australian rainforests, and have a chance to get sideways through Drift Zones in Byron Bay. Once you've finished all the events in the demo, you'll be able to hop online and join your fellow Forza friends in an online free-roam session to explore the demo's map together.
The drivable vehicles in the Forza Horizon 3 demo are a "who's who" of automotive hotness. Of course, you'll be spending time in one of the game's cover cars, the Lamborghini Centenario. Along the way you'll also get to drive more than one dune buggy, a rough-and-ready trophy truck and your choice from cars such as the BMW M4 Coupe, the Ford Shelby GT350R, as well as that Australian legend in the making, the 2014 HSV Limited Edition GEN-F GTS Maloo. And remember: this is just a small sample of the more than 350 cars that will be available for you to collect, customize, and race in the full version of the game.
The full version of Forza Horizon 3 will be released on September 27, and Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition owners will be able to get it earlier on September 23. It will be an Xbox Play Anywhere game, meaning it will allow people who purchase the Xbox One digital version to get the Windows 10 version for free, and vice versa.
