Forza Horizon 4 gets hilarious Planet Earth-like commercial

Forza Horizon 4 is the latest entry in Playground Games' gorgeous open-world racing series. The title takes place in Britain and features many innovations like a shared world, seasons, and even a long-awaited 60 FPS mode on Xbox One X.

Today, Microsoft released a hilarious new trailer which is a parody of the Planet Earth II documentary series. Instead of having Sir David Attenborough, we have a lookalike who tries to capture the miracle of nature. Instead of featuring animals and plants, the video he's narrating features cars. The elderly gentleman has trouble reading the script because it's filled with the destruction of flowers and other brash vehicles.

The trailer is a treat to watch because it showcases some of the game's lovely visuals too. Forza Horizon 4 also runs at native 4K resolution if you choose to render at that resolution instead of 1080p 60 FPS. Are you interested in Forza Horizon 4? Let us know. The game seems to be feature a lot of new technology this time around.

Forza Horizon 4 should launch on October 2, 2018. If you purchase the Ultimate Edition (opens in new tab), you can play it on September 28. Playground Games has been working on this game for the past two years and with every Forza Horizon release the experience gets that much better. Hopefully Forza Horizon 4 will be a spectacular follow-up to Forza Horizon 3.

  • just perfect :D
  • I definitely had a smile while watching it 😂🦇👌
  • Awesome. Damn, I cannot wait to get a new xbox.
  • They casted a great voice over actor.... He's like a Werner Herzog / Sir Richard Attenborough combo.
  • He's Maurice LaMarche, probably best known as the voice of The Brain from Animaniacs. At least that is the character that pops into my head when I think of him, but he's done so many.
  • Good ol' Maurice LaMarche, voice actor extraordinaire. Most people may know him as The Brain from Animaniacs.
