The aforementioned off-roading is just one of the many new features gamers can expect from Forza Horizon 2, but the ability to crash through fences, plow through forests and cornfields, and even find secret cars hidden in barns is certainly one of the coolest features at play here.
Online features include Car Clubs that hold up to 1,000 members, seamless drop-in/drop-out free-roaming multiplayer, and for Xbox One owners, the return of Drivatars (so you can compete with your friends, even when you're riding solo).
Of course, it's all about the cars, and Forza Horizon 2 has over 200 of them, including the stunning cover car, the Lamborghini Huracan. The muscle cars, tuner cars, and exotics are all in here, along with off-road vehicles for that new bumpier terrain. And every car features a full cockpit view, along with working windshield wipers and headlights, which will come in handy at night... in the rain.
That’s right, Forza Horizon 2 also features full day/night cycles and weather effects, which play out through the massive living world. You’ll get to race through Southern Europe dodging traffic, chasing down bullet trains and airplanes, and pulling off awesome stunts, all in an effort to make a name for yourself at the Horizon Festival.
Many of this week’s cars were chosen with heritage in mind; from the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2, a direct descendent of Alfa’s TZ1 race car, to the truly awesome Ferrari Enzo, a supercar so emblematic of Ferrari’s legendary history that they named it after the company’s founder. This week also includes one of the most recognizable cars from the 1980s in the Lamborghini Countach, as well as the SRT Viper GTS ACR, a car that managed to scare even veteran Viper owners with its laser-like focus on road-racing performance. As always, diversity is the key – whether you’re hanging out with your friends in your cherry ‘67 Stingray, or bombing across the fields of Tuscany in your Ford SVT Raptor, the list of cars in Horizon 2 is as varied as it is thrilling!
