    Default Forza Horizon 3 Hype

    Forza hype. Demo is out on XBL for those with an Xbox One. Game is awesome according to reviews and comes out this Friday if you have the Ultimate edition. All others next Tuesday.

    I feel like the last Horizon just came out. Keeping up with Forza games is becoming like an EA sports franchise...

    I'm sure its going to be pretty good. But I doubt i will buy this, certainly not for full price.

    Been playing the demo for the last 2 weeks. Lots of fun. Can't wait for it to come out. Definitely not paying $129.99 for the early access.

    I just split the $99.99 one with my buddy with sharing gold between our two xb1's. Definitely worth it that way

    You joker. It is one motorsport game every two years and one horizon game every two years. That is easily enough time between and they might come out with a third title. I much prefer this instead of 5-6 year GT iterations!

    But I need the car pack and car pass because I gotta collect em' all!

    Will also be nice to try it out on PC.

    Played it a ton over the weekend. The game is awesome.The setting up your own festival is great as it lets you use the car you want all the time, kind of similar to the last game, but then you can also make championships or exhibition based on the race. Lots of new skills challenges, tons of barn finds and fun street racing (Only way to unlock a few of the cars).
    The map feels much more varied than the first so you have I think four total festivals, downtown track racing, suburb/offroad racing, desert racing and forest offroad racing. You get to upgrade the festivals based on what you like and each level unlocks more races/challenges.

    I think I heard it was Australia. I think I may have to try this one out on PC since I missed the last few not owning an Xbox of any sort.

    Australia. This is almost the full map, extends into the white area in the bottom left and the city portion in the top right

    » Click image for larger version Lots of exploring to do. I like the city racing the most so far but driving the desert bit in a subaru is great fun too.

    I would hold off for now until they improve the PC performance with a patch. I tried it a few times on the weekend, but it runs much worse than Apex so I ended up playing the majority on my xbox.

    Compared to previous Horizons, what are people's thoughts?

    I haven't been totally in love with the last two. First one was okay, second one I just didn't really get into enough. I much preferred the feel of forza motorsports over horizon, but I typically like open world games. Just debating on buying or not, can't get into games like I use to.

    1 was fun because it was the first one. I hated the fact that it was 'open world' but half the map was inaccessible due to guard rails etc. that you couldn't drive through.

    2 was great because of the larger more open map. The addition of more offroading was also nice and allowing you to use the cars you want.

    3 is the best because of the larger more diverse map. Many more cars, you do the planning so you can choose which festival areas you enjoy along with making your own races (Choose car types etc, conditions, time, type of race) and bucket challenges. One of my favorite new features is convoys. Honk your horn at passing drivitars and they will cruise with you following your waypoints or car. They help you explore to find boards in the game and you can also gain more XP based on perks and race them to random destinations. Just a much better overall package than the others.

    I prefer normal Forza also, but this is a nice change just to cruise around the map and enjoy the sights and cars.

    tell me about it. I won't even buy an Xbox one until Xbox 2 or whatever variant they come out with, comes out.

    Outside of Nintendo, there likely won't be any more console generations, just revisions of the existing ala PC. Xbox Scorpio (4k gameplay) won't be out for another year and will be more $$$ than the existing OG or Xbox One S, so if you can get a good deal, worth getting one now to play the good games.

    Well I did indeed break down and buy this, 30 bucks off. What made me decide?

    Man I would have been pissed off if I forked over 100 bucks for ultimate edition and then 2 months later have to pay extra for this

    Love playing this on my PC in 4k every once in awhile, too bad I can only get around 30fps on ultra. Shoulda bought a gtx 1080 lol. Though I do play more on the xbox as it's just easier to sit down on the couch and play. Only got 6 achievements left to do (3 star the PR stunts and do a championship at every single race location included in those...those are going to take a loooong time)

    Can't wait for the expansion but it's a bit of a kick in the teeth for $34.99 usd lol

    I hope the expansion is at least half as good as it sounds!
    I have been getting bored of the game, this should perk my interest again.

    It's like $1/hr so idgaf

    Can't wait. Have always wanted some type of snow in the game. I was expecting more cars though... at least all can be equipped with winter tires.
