"Forza Horizon 4 (Xbox, PC) "

releases on october 2

demo is out: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/forza-horizon-4-demo/9p8cp1l72jxs?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

played for a few hours last night. it looks fantastic and runs well on my aging gaming pc (i5-6600k + 980ti), maintaining a steady 60 fps at 2560x1440 with max settings. there is something they did to the lighting that makes this game pop visually. i can't quite put my finger on it but i love how this game looks

my main concern about this game was the performance on PC since FH3 was such a mixed bag but it seems like playground games have done a good job of optimizing FH4. the frame rate is solid, menus are crisp, photo mode loads up quickly, the customization menu is snappier, etc. just a lot of little things that seem to add up to a more fluid experience overall

the demo is area-limited but it still seems like a large portion of the map to mess around in. driving still feels amazing, especially with the feedback on the triggers. i think the animated cut scenes are weird. the whole presentation seems to be leaning closer to burnout or at least dj atomika-era EA racing games

and woke up this morning and none of it saved!

The handling for V8 muscle cars is so much better. Previous Forza games made it seem as they were driving on snow.

The game indicated early access started on the 28th but it actually became available to play on the 27th at 11p est. I played for about 3 hours straight.

doesn't have a full-featured time trials mode so there is no reason to play after you finish the campaign. very disappointing. i hope they patch in the rivals mode from the previous FH (and Forza) games

The visuals are stunning. Every photo I've taken in the past means nothing
