Forza Horizon 4 is an upcoming open world racing video game developed by Playground Games and published by Microsoft Studios. It will be released on 2, October 2018 on Xbox One and Microsoft Windows after being announced at Xbox's E3 2018 conference. The game will be set in a fictionalized representation of the United Kingdom. It is the fourth Forza Horizon title and the eleventh installment in the Forza series. The game is noted for its introduction of changing seasons to the series.
Forza Horizon 4 features over 450 licensed cars. It includes a route creator which enables players to create their own races. The game takes place in a synchronized shared world, compared to the AI-driven Drivatars from its predecessors, with each server supporting up to 72 players. The game is also playable in offline mode.
Players have the opportunity to buy properties from across the map, which unlocks new items and game-play perks. The game features a dynamic weather system that also depicts the change of seasons. The game world changes depending on the season: for example, lakes will freeze over in winter and allow players the ability to explore regions of the game world that would be inaccessible during other seasons. The seasons are fixed across the game's servers, meaning that all players will experience the same conditions at the same time.
