Microsoft started off E3 2018 with a bang, taking the wraps off of the latest entry in its Forza series, Forza Horizon 4. If the early peek at Forza Horizon 4's open world had you ready to jump in the driver's seat, the game is now available to preorder on the Microsoft Store and at Amazon.

Following up on the Australian journey packed into Forza Horizon 3, Forza Horizon 4 will take fans to the United Kingdom. One of the key features that Microsoft and developer Playground Games are hyping up is the game's dynamic seasons system, which will switch from snow to falling leaves, and plenty of rain, as the seasons change. And if you're playing on an Xbox One X, you'll be able to hit the road with a 60 FPS mode.

As far as cars, Microsoft says that there will be more than 450 vehicles to collect and modify as you compete through the Horizon festival. The game will also have Mixer broadcasting and spectating features built in, along with a route creation tool that will let players come up with their own races anywhere on the game's map.

Forza Horizon 4 is set to launch on October 2, so there's still some time to go before its release. If you pick up the Ultimate Edition, you'll also get early access starting on September 28. And since this is a Microsoft Studios title, Forza Horizon 4 will be available to play as part of Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription for both console and PC on its launch date.

Forza Horizon 4 is available now for preorder for $59.99.
