Forza Horizon 4's Shared World Vision Of Britain

Forza Horizon is back. For Forza Horizon 4, Playground Games is expanding the game's open world to encompass the length and breadth of Britain – adding more co-op play and dynamic seasons, weather, and time of day.

The stage demo of the game showed co-op play with real players in real-time, including the ability to race within the world and team up for co-op events like Forzathon Live with shared challenges and big rewards. This appears to bring together previously separate co-op experiences in the last Forza Horizon 3 into one experience.

 

Furthering the shared world component, the game's dynamic seasons and weather are experienced by all players at the same time, and fall's golden leaves blowing past your windshield give way to iced over lakes that allow gamers to reach new areas of the map.

Forza Horizon 4 comes out on October 2 on Xbox One and Windows 10, and will be available in the Xbox Gamepass program.
