The highly anticipated Forza Horizon 3 is hurtling towards its release this month. If there’s anything the Forza brand has been consistent with, it’s releasing top-notch racing sims on an annual basis.
This time the game will take you down under to the vast landscape of Australia. You’ll also be playing the part of event organizer, giving you an opportunity to create the best racing event anyone’s ever seen.
According to Heavy, the map will be huge, easily twice as large as its predecessor. You’ll be burning rubber on the wide array of locations, which includes the dusty Outback, lush rainforests, and long sandy beaches among others.
Forza Horizon 3 also features multiple game modes, allowing you to compete with other players, pass the time, as well as explore the landscape. Featuring multiplayer races, 1000-player Car Clubs, Car Meets, Playground games, Rivals events, Online Free Roam and the new Online Adventure mode, there’s no shortage of fun activities to do.
If the maps and modes aren’t enough to satisfy the car junkie in you, then maybe collecting over 350 cars will. All these vehicles can be driven and can also be modified and painted to suit your tastes.
You can also apply your creative genius with the game’s newest and arguably best feature, Horizon Blueprint. This feature allows you to edit and customize pre-created events to give yourself or your opponents an advantage. You’re the manager, the position has to come with some perks right?
This new festival is all about the fans, gaining fans to be precise which helps you attract more racers. You can even attract racers from your friends list through their Drivatars with the Drivatar Lineup feature.
