Forza Horizon 4 crosses 7 million players on Xbox One and PC

Forza Horizon 4 launched a few months ago, and gamers are loving the open-world racing experience. The game features upgraded visuals and a shared world for an even more community-focused experience. The user feedback seems to be great, and the title has also garnered a lot of critical acclaim from numerous outlets. The game currently sits at a 92 on Metacritic from over eighty reviews.

Recently, Playground Games — now owned by Microsoft — launched the "Fortune Island" expansion. While there isn't another major piece of content dropping for another couple of months at least, there are smaller updates in between. The constant patches and introduction of tweaked features is what keeps players coming back for more. Recently, the game crossed five million players.

Today, the developer announced that Forza Horizon 4 recently crossed seven million players. Keep in mind that the title is available on Xbox Game Pass so that accounts for this total too. Do you play Forza Horizon 4? What compelled you to buy it?

Xbox Game Pass is a Netflix-like subscription but for games. For $9.99 per month, you get access to over a hundred titles at no extra cost. However, just like the video service, certain games — aside from Microsoft exclusives — rotate in and out. While Xbox Game Pass started off as a somewhat lackluster service, it's become much better now with the addition of high-profile games like The Division.
