Microsoft started off E3 2018 with a bang, taking the wraps off of the latest entry in its Forza series called Forza Horizon 4. The game takes place in Britain and features numerous enhancements over its predecessor. Today, during an official livestream, we got another in-depth look at the game.
Following up on the Australian journey packed into Forza Horizon 3, Forza Horizon 4 will take fans to a new location. 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. During the winter, lakes freeze over and become drivable surfaces. However, that just isn't possible during the rest of the year.
The map is considerably more beautiful in the spring because of all the vegetation. However, the highlight of the video has to be the Scottish city of Edinburgh. Unlike a modern metropolis, Edinburgh has a convoluted layout with a lot of history. Without any navigation, it would be easy to get lost in it.
Forza Horizon 4 is set to launch on October 2, 2018 for $59.99. If you pick up the Forza Horizon 4: Ultimate Edition, you can get early access starting on September 28. Forza Horizon 4 will also be available as part of Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC through Xbox Play Anywhere.

This game should be really good. FH3 was a blast.
if the game engine itself hasn't change that much, they should allow you to visit old maps if you own the previous versions
Demo videos for this game take ages to load. Also, why are British cars in Britain shown left hand drive?
