Just as it was promised last month, Xbox is releasing Forza Horizon 4 on Steam (from Xbox Wire (opens in new tab)). This move further solidifies Microsoft's commitment to bringing more Xbox Game Studios titles to Steam. It will hopefully open Forza Horizon 4 up to a whole new group of players.

Forza Horizon 4 on Steam has three separate editions to choose from and offers all of its existing DLC and expansions for individual purchase. Also launching today is the Hot Wheels Legends Car Pack, which includes new cars joining the absolutely massive roster of vehicles already present in Forza Horizon 4.

Forza Horizon 4 is available right now on Steam, and includes full cross-play support. That means Forza Horizon 4 players can race together no matter where they game, including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Windows 10, Xbox Game Pass, and even Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) on mobile devices through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

To celebrate the launch, any Forza Horizon 4 players who log-in with their Xbox Account attached can add the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS car to their collections for free. This promotion is available until March 14, and will send players a message to redeem their free car when they next log-in.

Forza Horizon 4 is an excellent racing game, and currently sits on top of our list for Best Racing Games for Xbox. If you want to get the most out of Forza Horizon 4 on Xbox or PC, consider one of the Best Headsets for Xbox Series X|S. These headsets often work with both Xbox and PC, and will offer the best audio experience you could ask for, no matter where or what you're playing.
