You can now play the Forza Horizon 4 demo

49w ago


Want to experience Forza Horizon 4 for yourself? You can now play the exact demo we got our mitts on a while back, £750,000 McLaren Senna and all.

Simply load up your PC or Xbox One, download the demo and away you go. Early access to what is likely to be the biggest-selling racing game of 2018 will be your reward.

Though relatively short, the Forza Horizon 4 demo does show you all four seasons in action, as well as a taste of rally driving and road racing (in the aforementioned Senna).

You can also see just how visually impressive it all looks if you have a 4K and HDR-toting television and an Xbox One X, as the detail is plentiful and things run at a smooth 60 frames per second.

460 cars will be in the full game (including the TVR Speed 12!), the list of which we recently talked about. Though most are known, Playground Games has deliberately kept a few surprises such as details of the Day One Car Pack and some unlockables.

You only get to drive a few of them in the demo, but they are varied in nature and that means you can get a feel for the revised handling model, which, to us at least, is a compelling mix of arcadey and realistic. Particularly if you have a steering wheel.

Sadly, there is no driving around Edinburgh, nor can you delve into other Forza Horizon 4 features such as the Route Creator, drift challenges and buying a house (or castle). But it will get you up to speed ahead of Forza Horizon 4's launch.

Speaking of which, the game's official release date is the 28th of September (two days after a glitzy launch party at Goodwood) if you buy the Ultimate Edition or the 2nd of October if you go for the two cheaper alternatives.

We are close to getting access to the entire game so stay tuned for the official DriveTribe verdict. Here's hoping Forza Horizon 4 lives up to all the hype, eh?
