Forza Horizon 4 Is Set In Britain

Forza Horizon 4 Is Set In Britain

Today during its E3 press conference, Microsoft debuted Forza Horizon 4.

The new racer in Forza‘s arcadier sister series is set in Britain. It features “dynamic seasons” in a “shared open world.” Apparently this “changes everything.”

Here’s a trailer:

During the E3 demo, we got to see multiple seasons – summer, winter, and everything in between – each of which will bring their own hazards and events. The game will be out on October 2.


  • It seems like such a boring setting after the last two Horizon titles. I reallu hope the next one aims for a Japanese setting, something with high mountains and complex cities would be much more interesting than a bunch of washed out visuals.

      • To be fair even a completely fictional background would be more interesting than that region. Horizon 3 worked because Australia allows for a wide colour palette. Far western Europe is super boring. I would love some south America, Asia or Africa as opposed to greyish blue and brown that places like England represent.

        • I’m semi-interested as I’m about to go on holiday there but I agree, it does look like a bunch of different locations that are the same.

          While the geography was a mess, FH3 at least had some rainforest, a desert-ish area (outback), a city and some nice countryside. This one seems to be countryside, countrytown (yeah I called Edinburgh a town), slightly foresty-countryside and… a country lake?

          I guess the seasons will add a bit of variety but I’d love if they went even more crazy with the geography and had swiss alps and/or some windy Italian roads.

          • Italian/Spanish country side would be amazing. Maybe NZ mountains, heck the map could be 1:1 with one of the islands 😛

    • There had been rumours going around that Horizon 4 would be set in Japan, but they turned out not to be true.

      Honestly I don’t mind where Horizon is set as long as it allows for the amazing open-world driving that the previous games have all had.

    • I’ve driven in both Japan and Britain. blasting down B-roads in a shitty hatch back is some of the funnest driving times I’ve ever had.

      • Nailed it.

        British back roads are fantastic. I had a Peugeot 309 which was absolutely point-and-shoot and because it had a tiny engine it’s all about never wasting any speed unnecessarily – f you can see through a corner you take the corner… 🙂

        I’m looking forward to this one.
