Microsoft started off E3 2018 with a bang, taking the wraps off of the latest entry in its Forza Horizon series called Forza Horizon 4. The game takes place in Britain and features numerous enhancements over its predecessor. However, what was most surprising was the announcement that the game would run at 60 FPS on Xbox One X.
Digital Foundry was able to test out the title at E3 2018 and concluded that Forza Horizon 4 achieved native 4K resolution on Microsoft's new console. A 60 FPS option will be added in later which will probably allow you to toggle between the two settings. It's unclear if this means that the game will run at 1080p 60 FPS or support a lower resolution because it's an incredibly demanding experience.
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 time goes on.
Forza Horizon 4 is set to launch on October 2, 2018 for $59.99. If you pick up the Ultimate Edition, you can get early access starting on September 28. The first expansion is expected in December 2018 and the second one should launch in early 2019. Forza Horizon 4 will also be available as part of Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC through Xbox Play Anywhere.
