Forza Horizon 4

Post by ShockDiamonds » Thu Aug 02, 2018 12:36 pm

Anybody planning on getting this? Will mean I finally have to update my gaming PC to Windows 10 but as it was the coin mining machine, it's capable of handling 4K gaming hence a 4K monitor may be bought also - visuals online look pretty good. That said, wonder how much playing I would do before never connecting again. Haven't even been on AC and the Rift for weeks...

I'll be buying it again, but will be for the Xbox (one x so 4k 60fps again I believe). Really like the Horizon versions of Forza. Found FM7 got stale pretty quick, so hopefully a lot to do on FH4.

Am I right in thinking that if you buy the game digitally for Windows you get it on Xbox and vice versa? (Using the same Live account)

Horizon 4 is based on the U.K. so I reckon it will be the best one yet. Wonder how realistic it will be. Will you get your car nicked if you drive an Audi RS model or get raped as you pass through Birmingham?
How about not having a sig at all?

Are you able to gate-crash a VW Beetle race at Brands Hatch in your VW Polo (with terrified girlfriend in the passenger seat)?

How sweet would it be if they actually added a few U.K. racetracks to the map. They already have Silverstone and the Too Gear track.

Someone's just put up a 15 minute gameplay vid on Youtube (insanely irritating commentary) and the Edinburgh stuff looks insanely good. Although I still wish they'd remake Project Gotham.

I want a one x but can't justify £400 on yet another console, but spending £250 on a graphics card hidden in the pc is fine 🤔 hopefully it'll be ok for current gen stuff, including horizon 4, but I can't afford to keep up with the cutting edge of pc gaming.

And yesterday does look superb although I wonder how popular it will be outside of the uk, I doubt dull dreary uk has quite the same global appeal as somewhere nice and hot and sunny...

Love the look of winter in the demos I’ve seen. Yeah will give it a shot at some point.

So will it be on PC and Xbox then?

Which platform is better for a casual gamer? (i.e. someone who hasn’t played in 4+ years)

I think most Xbox games are on both.

An Xbox will be by far the quickest and easiest to just pick up and play, pc possibly slightly better visuals if you have something with enough grunt to run it properly.

The forza games all work brilliantly with the Xbox pad, although a wheel setup would be nice if you've got enough to buy a decent one and have space to set it up properly.

Probably be some deals with a onex with horizon as the bundle game when it's released.

Some of the footage I've seen looks absolutely stunning - I seem to remember there's stuff modelled on the Scottish Highlands which looks incredible as far as countryside sections go.

I've not yet got a 4K TV, but with all the stuff on Apple TV and now this, its getting tempting if there's any decent ones at the "not silly money" level now.

Bad news then.

I want to keep the place under the radar!

Really like the look of this..... it’s got a bit of Test Drive Unlimited about it, a game I enjoyed playing very much.

And it’s got Corrado VR6, Integra Type R and 996 GT3 :D

I reckon it will be a big favourite here as it’s a game we can all relate to.

My games already installed, just waiting for to be playable. The James Bond car pack looked pretty good as well

The demo is pretty good, certainly looks stunning and zips along at an absurd rate. The colours and effects make it look more striking than standard forza ( seem to remember thinking the same about the original horizon on 360 )

It really does feel like driving along British roads. The in game dry stone walls are a bit more forgiving though :lol:

However, after the three week long nightmare getting forza 7 downloaded I'm reluctant to buy anything big off the Microsoft store ever again, plus I've only just started to scratch the surface of that so don't need to be starting anything new right now.
