Forza Horizon Information

Forza Horizon Announcement
http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/for...izon_announce/

What to Expect
An open world driving experience similar to that in various Need for Speed and Midnight Club games but likely with the realistic physics you expect from Forza.

Official Trailer

Yes, I am. They're dead to me..

What they did to Need for Speed has made me dislike them for years. I didn't buy a single one since Pro Street until Hot Pursuit came out. I bought that and was hugely disappointed so I decided I'd never buy another NFS title.

The Porsche license pushed me over the edge because now not only did they butcher the racing franchise that got me into racing games in the first place, they were screwing with my current choice of racing game.

And even now that they've given the license I have to pay $20 on top of the $130 I already spent to get cars that if it hadn't been for EA I would of had anyway. And they aren't even new cars, from what I've seen so far we're only getting cars that were already in FM3, aside from some newer versions of race cars that we already had. I doubt I'll be buying the pack until it's on sale because of that so EA is costing me another several months away from Porsche.

And, aside from 1 or 2, it's not like they make good games anyway. EA is all about pumping out games like they're candy, they don't care about quality or buyer loyalty so I don't care about them. Between Halo, Forza, Grand Theft Auto, Midnight Club, and the odd game here and there I have all the gaming I need. I just graduated from university and I'll be working full time soon so I don't need, or have the time, to play more than a couple games a year anyway.

Any Ideas / thoughts on release date? Christmas release?

My thoughts exactly! Just wonder how the competition side of things would work? or is it going to be more towards the street racing scene?

Most Wanted was the last time I actually enjoyed a Need for Speed game. Still not going to buy the new one, Midnight Club gives me my arcade racing fix now.

Honestly probably not. They were following the "The Fast and The Furious" craze with those games and it's died down among popular culture.

I wouldn't go that far because I can't see Forza ever have police in it but in the way that both are free roam then yes it will be a bit like Most Wanted.

I haven't bought a NFS game since the original Hot Pursuit came out in '98. Really dislike those games now.

Looking forward to this though - have to get cracking on bucket list before this comes out!

I agree with u skyline, EA don't give a shit about there games or quality. My all time fav game is MW, arcade wise. NFS was one of my fav series, but after carbon they have been going downhill. I hated shift series(they weren't all bad), prostreet, undercover and the run might just be the worst racing games out there.

One fine example from EA is its madden series, they barely improve each year. Ever since they got the NFL license, they had no competition, and there Madden games have been the same with few minor tweaks. They don't innovate at all. I hope Forza gets 2 teams and release a racing game every year. If there is competition, NFS and EA might just start to innovate and make better games.

ok just saw a demo on Spike, I noticed 206 roads that are drivable, there are the actual races ( i.e. festivale events ) but they said there are also the "illegal" street races that you can find, as mentioned before, night time driving, and I didnt quite hear the whole thing but something about you can race planes!? what?

Graphics looked sharp, he was driving the viper like a pu$$y though, he was kind of just going around in a circle, but nonetheless it has that arcade feel to. You get points for hitting fences, doing burn outs, hitting other car, driving on the side of the road, doing 180's, etc....

There's circuit racing, point-to-point racing, drifting, stunt driving, and more. You can drive off road and on 60 different road surfaces. At night you can enter illegal street races and in showcase events you have to race things like helicopters and fighter planes.

Looks like it will be a game for the developers to test the technology and the features we requested.
It it fails miserably, the core franchise will be only slightly hurt.

Anyway, looking forward to it but worried about some aspects (damage reduction, too arcadey, cockpit view, weather quality, DUBSTEP > <, too many empty open roads, stupid back story).

By the way, they have already updated the official website with 3 pages for Horizon.
Features, Cars, World.

Yeah, they'll see if they're graphics hold up at night so they can have it perfected for FM5. Plus now that they have a working night model they should have time to work on rain for FM5. They'll also see how the physics engine holds up on dirt roads but I can't see that being part of the FM franchise.

I'm hoping for a good amount of traffic, the scene with the Viper weaving through has my hopes up so far. I don't want a stupid story either, from what I can tell so far there are speed festivals and you have to get to them by a certain time to enter them. Once you're there you do drifting, stunts, and crazy races.

It looks like an hybrid between Burnout Paradise, NFS Pro street and TDU.
As long as they take the good from each game and not the worst parts, it should end up pretty well.

IGN

E3 2012: Test Driving Forza Horizon
Road-trippin' to Colorado.

A whopping 206 roads make up the hundreds of miles of in-game driving surfaces, though for the first time you won’t be driving exclusively on pavement. Off-road sections are in, and the series’ renowned physics engine (which updates its readings 360 times per second, according to Playground Games design director Ralph Fulton. Think that number is a coincidence?) makes Horizon’s collection of supercars react accordingly. We asked, and icy surfaces will not make the cut, as the game is set during Colorado’s summer months.

Your goal in Horizon? Earn points for drifts, passes, wrecks, sideswipes, and other driving feats in order to become the most popular driver at the Horizon festival, which serves as your home base for buying new cars, tweaking paint jobs, and more. Horizon is a giant party that’s part car show, part meetup, part car race, and part music festival.

We saw a small number of cars on the road, from the Aston Martins, Ferraris, Vipers, and Skylines we were racing against to the pedestrian Priuses, PT Cruisers, and Volkswagen Beetles we sped by on our way to victory (OK, third place). Unsurprisingly, Fulton was noncommittal about the number of total cars Horizon will offer, which is understandable given how many contracts with auto manufacturers are likely yet to be finalized. And you’ll be able to wander anywhere on those roads, dynamically challenging AI racers to competitions, such as the speed challenge we saw that tasked you with earning a higher average speed than your opponent for a short stretch of road.

As you’d expect, Horizon’s driving physics feel incredibly similar to Forza Motorsport 4, though Playground is quick to point out the game’s “action racing” underpinnings and, as such, their goal is to make it very pick-up-and-play. Car clubs, time trials, circuit racing, a one-on-one rivals mode, and playground games are among the online multiplayer features that are already confirmed, all at the series’ usual 60 frames per second. Oh, and nighttime racing too. Get your keys and turn the lights on. We’re gonna drive fast.

They're going to have 3 in game radio stations.

Hopefully they leave one free for us to play our own music right thru the game.

Some ASAP Rocky, Spaceghostpurrp, and Curren$y

It will be one hell of a week with Horizon and Most Wanted releasing so close together. Looking forward for both of them.
