Forza Horizon 4 brings glorious 4K, 60fps racing to Xbox One X this October

Unveiled at E3 2018, the open-world racer will be set in a gorgeously recreated version of Great Britain

While it was one of the least surprising reveals at E3 2018, Forza Horizon 4's official unveiling is still one to get your engine revved up for. A spin-off from the main Forza driving simulator series (think Gran Turismo, but on Xbox), FH4 is set in a gorgeously recreated take on Great Britain, with everything from the rolling hills of Scotland to the quaint country roads of England driveable.

There are two big changes to the series - the weather will now change dynamically based on a shifting cycle of seasons, with everything from winter's snowfall making a race far more treacherous, to the rain-slick roads of spring reducing traction. It's not clear yet whether these cycles will change with the actual year, or run on a sped of clock like its day/night cycle, but it's a mechanic that should make every race feel that bit more unique from the last.

It'll support 4K and even comes with a 60fps mode if you really want to push that new 4K TV of yours to the max via Xbox One X. In fact, even on a regular HD TV and a vanilla Xbox One, FH4 still looks incredible. Honestly, the UK has never looked so good.

There's also a greater focus on social interaction and co-op, with more players now racing around a single server. You'll be able to chat and challenge other racers you encounter in seconds, all without a single loading screen. It arrives exclusively on Xbox One on 2 October, and if you've got a subscription to the Game Pass service, the game will be available through it on the very same day.
