Forza Horizon 4 Puts The McLaren Senna And Much More In An Ever-Changing Environment

Looking for the ultimate racing simulator? Forza Motorsport is one of the best out there. But if you want to venture off the virtual race track and into a less constricted digital environment, Forza Horizon has got you covered. And this is our first look at the latest.

Following the debut of the first Forza Horizon in 2012, the second in 2014, and the third in 2016, Turn 10 Studios has announced the next chapter will hit shelves (physical or otherwise) on October 2. But before it does, it’s released these first details, screen shots, and video footage ahead of its announcement at E3 in Los Angeles.

Like the previous iterations, Forza Horizon 4 goes off the track into a virtually limitless environment – this time based in the UK. And what’s more is that the environment changes continuously with the weather, seasons, even time of day. So that route you drove yesterday may not be exactly the same the next time you venture out onto it – just like in the real world the game seeks to emulate.

Based as it is in Great Britain, British cars feature front and center – chief among them the McLaren Senna, which will grace the box cover (along with a 1997 Land Rover Defender 90). In fact the Senna will mark its first appearance in the US at Forza’s booth at E3 on Tuesday. And a fitting centerpiece it is. But it won’t be the only vehicle to feature in the game, of course. The developers promise over 450 cars digitally replicated from 100 different manufacturers, and you can see some of them in the launch trailer and images below.

        OK, can you show me how? 🙂 I tried searching for steam on PSN, yet no result… Do you think I can go on Windows store on my PC and Downlaode the game and put on a USB ? Then transfer it to my PS4? 🙂

    Right hand drive 2nd time in a row. Why just why?

    I’m excited about this one! FYI, for anyone interested, Microsoft has the various digital versions Forza 3 on sale on their website for 50% off for about another week. It kills me this game is so old (and so good), yet it’s always full price.

  • Even as a Forza fan it’s getting tired, yes there are new features like more weather per season, properties (Very TDU indeed) and now the ability to create your own route for the races. But beyond that, nothing new. Even the car list looks the same right now.

    We still miss Toyota too.

      The trailer shows 2 Toyota trucks, maybe they are back, like VW wasn’t in Horizon 3 but was in Motorsport 7

      • The Toyota you saw is Hilux that are licensed by Arctic Trucks (the one that get famous by TG trip to North Pole) and the other is racing Toyota that they can license without problem.

    • DMax

      Forza is a Call of Duty of racing games. VW is absent too.

      • I believe VW has return since FM7, In the trailer we see Dingo Racing Beetle, Beetle GRC and new Beetle Baja that has been scanned way before FH3. But yeah if there is no road going VW, this would be very weird/

      I guess they’re banking on the location change. For me that’s a huge selling point. I didn’t care for Forza 3 because the location was uninspiring to me. However, I will gladly snap up 4 for the chance to drive Great Britain.

      • I know the irony of what I’m saying, but I’m still gonna take FH4 anyway, it’s just they probably can get some break.
