Forza Horizon combines Forza authenticity with a festival atmosphere and the freedom of the open road. It offers an immersive pick-up-and-play, open-road racing experience and features realism, diversity and innovation.

Experience the thrill of action racing on the open roads of Colorado in this wide-ranging demo, designed to give players a taste of the white-knuckle action in store when “Forza Horizon” is unleashed to retail.

In the demo, players will experience the Colorado of “Forza Horizon”, driving a sampling of cars from Horizon’s stellar lineup across a variety of different event types – from Horizon Festival events taking place on the dusty dirt roads of Colorado’s upper hills to a climactic street race that find players winding up, around, and over the architectural marvel that is the Finley Dam.

Players who download and play the “Forza Horizon” demo and then purchase and play the full game online will receive a specially designed 2013 SRT Viper GTS, celebrating Forza Horizon’s “gone-gold” status. This rare liveried car will only be available to those who download the demo and purchase and play the game online.
