Forza Horizon 4 really cares about drifting

1y ago


Another month, another 'Forza Monthly' YouTube video to soak in. This time, though, you may want to get comfy as it is an hour and 35 minutes long and most of that is spent demonstrating and talking about drifting.

Yes, sideways fans, Forza Horizon 4 really embraces the art of ruining tyres in style, which is why it includes seven Formula Drift cars as part of the Formula Drift Car Pack you can get from pre-ordering the game. Said car pack will also be available in Forza Motorsport 7.

The full list of drift cars is as follows: #43 Dodge Viper SRT10, #530 HSV Maloo Gen-F, #13 Ford Mustang, #777 Nissan 240SX, #232 Nissan 240SX, #118 Nissan 240SX and the #98 BMW 325i from 1989.

After a recap of all the seasons in Forza Horizon 4 and the first proper look at Edinburgh city centre, the juicy information begins (around 11:12). For starters, we now know everyone gets a house ─ known as The Gables ─ at the start of the game.

The video also shows just how much detail has gone into the Formula Drift cars, ranging from the exterior design and engine to each driver's little unique touches in the interior such as random stickers.

Another drift-focussed aspect of Horizon 4 is the railway area near Edinburgh, which is a playground for those who just want to mess about and do doughnuts. But without a security guard threatening to call the police.

Just a reminder that you will be able to buy Edinburgh Castle

Turn 10 has also tried to rectify an issue with Drift Zones in previous Horizon games. Where traffic would ruin your day, it now becomes a ghost (as in, visible but collisions are impossible) during a drift event so it should be easier to rack up a big score.

Those wanting more information on Forza Horizon 4should be at the 2018 Gamescom later in August or keep an eye on DriveTribe and other gaming news sites because Ekberg says the show will deliver.

Can't wait for Forza Horizon 4? Playground games was only too keen to remind Xbox gamers that Forza Horizon 2 is currently free for the entire month of August, providing you have an Xbox Live Gold account. So that should help pass the time.

Forza Horizon 4 will be released on the 2nd of October, 2018. The Deluxe Edition, which includes two free DLCs, allows you to play from the 28th of September.
