Are motorcycles driveable or was that just track candy?

Hey menace-uk- are you “the english guy” over at Jalopnik who posted this....


Paid DLC 1: Remove roadworks every 2 miles.

Paid DLC 2: Remove variable speed limits on motorways.

Paid DLC Platinum Pack: DLCs 1 & 2 plus platinum pack exclusive: Remove Average Speed Cameras

Buying loot crates gives you a 3% chance of having the congestion charge paid so you can enter the central London part of the map. But, remember kids, loot crates aren’t gambling. Allegedly.

Hopefully it will be a massive failure with the community. Empty servers are the only way you’re going to overtake the asshat who bought the Morris/Hillman car pack and is blocking the narrow country roads, sometimes hitting twenty, with nowhere to pass.

They really stepped up the light rendering... I almost didn't believe that it was in-engine.

Game is being dismissed because FH is taken for granted. This game shouldn’t be taken for granted. What other racing game is competing with it?

Sounds like it is about the size of FH3:

“’Seasons change everything’ sounds like a neat tagline, but it’s a really honest description of what actually happens from season to season… in our game,” says Fulton. “I think it’s testament to the production team and our tech art team, and our environment art team here at Playground who have managed to create basically four worlds the size of Forza Horizon 3, in one, for this game.”

Not unexpected. Britain isn't a massive place to being with...and it isn't like FH3 was small. And Australia is a vastly bigger country than Britain.

Maybe I'm reading that wrong, but aren't they saying it's four times the size of FH3?
They are saying that they have to essentially make 4 complete maps because each season requires a s*** ton of work for the map. Every tree on the map is different in each season for example.

It's important to note, however, that while the shared world experience is Playground’s vision for how best to enjoy Forza Horizon 4, it’s not an online-only game.

“Always online is a problem for people,” admits principal game designer Mike Brown. “Sometimes you just don’t want to play with other people; sometimes people are just put off by the idea of having to cope with other people.”

“It comes with loads of other problems, such as your internet goes down, you can’t play. Our servers go down; you can’t play. So we solved that problem by saying that Forza Horizon 4 will not be an always-online game. As much as this is a shared-world game, and we believe it’s much better played with other people, you can totally just click a button and play the entire game in single player with Drivatars if that’s your wont.”
AND

Of course, there are other problems that plague online-based experiences, but Playground explains it’s already intercepted and addressed a series of important ones to protect the traditional Forza Horizon experience. Yes, you can still pause the game. Yes, you can use photo mode. Yes, you can even rewind. And, no, you can’t be griefed by strangers.

“You can imagine the scenario,” begins Brown. “You’re flying through a drift zone, you’re about to nail your all-time high score, someone flies in from the side, ploughs into the side of you, ruins your day.”

This can’t happen in Forza Horizon 4, at least not with strangers. Players unknown to you will be ghosted on contact.

“Now any player you meet online who you’re not a friend with, who’s not in your convoy, they won’t be able to negatively impact your experience,” says Brown.

Customizable avatars and purchasable homes and businesses? This reeks of Test Drive Unlimited.

Hell f***ing yes

60 fps performance mode. Sweet. I think only for Xbox One X though.

I like the fact that the expansions are included with the latter two SKUs... just hope Porsche cars are included in all variants

*edit for word correction*
They will. They were in Forza 7 anyway.

Here you go. All cars confirmed to be in the game so--82 of them. Includes several Porsches. There is a written list in the description for those not wanting to watch the video.

I played it last night, it’s awesome! The demo ‘forced’ you to play about 5 minutes in each season, each time with a different vehicle. Trucks in the mud were the best.
They also had 2 fully mobile arcade cabinets set up outside. The line was too long so I didn’t bother, but I took a quick vid of a sh*tty driver:
