The lights are on
Forza Horizon was a cool side-take on the normal Forza lineage, but it wasn't as open world as advertised. Forza Horizon 2 seeks to rectify this, and we recently took the game for a spin, plowing through fields and pavement alike.
Check out the playthrough video below (featuring myself, Jeff Cork, and Turn 10 community manager Brian Ekberg). In it you can see what it's like to race offroad during a point-to-point race (now in the game's new location) that tasks you to hit gates in the environment and takes you through grass fields (watch out for that tree!) as well as city streets. The diversity is exhilarating; losing none of the speed of a Festival race. Leaving the streets isn't restricted to specific races, either. Naturally, you can roam around the environments when you're just in the world.
You can also find out about what it's like to drive in the game's dynamic weather, as well as some other details about the game.
Forza Horizon 2 comes out for the Xbox One (developed by Playground Games) and Xbox 360 (Sumo Digital) on September 30.
