In Forza Horizon 4 you explore beautiful scenery, collect over 450 cars, and become a Horizon Superstar in historic Britain.

Forza Horizon 4 is aiming to be the largest and most dynamic Forza title to date. Allowing to you race everything from sports cars to hovercrafts, it's aiming to create a dynamic online experience unlike any other.

The biggest new feature for Forza Horizon 4 is seasons that change the game world. A lake may be frozen in winter or paths may unexpectedly open in spring, allowing the large world to be even more fluid than ever.

Forza Horizon 4 is set in Britain, and players can explore the cities and countryside in dozens of fast and expensive cars.

Collect, modify and drive over 450 cars. Race, stunt, create and explore – choose your own path to become a Horizon Superstar.

It has been one week since we launched Forza Horizon 4 and we are humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we continue to receive from players around the world. We are proud to say that in this first week alone, there are currently two million players driving around Forza Horizon 4’s Britain. On behalf of everyone at Playground Games, thank you for supporting Forza Horizon 4 and making the game such a success!

With such incredible global engagement with Forza Horizon 4, the game is now the highest-rated Xbox exclusive of this generation and Forza continues to be the best-selling racing franchise of this console generation. We also want to share some fun stats with you from the community:

  • More than 4.6 million hours of Forza Horizon 4 gameplay have been watched across Mixer, Twitch, YouTube and Facebook as of Oct. 9
  • Players have logged more than 822.7 million miles – that’s probably not covered under manufacturer warranty
  • The community has settled in quite nicely living the Horizon Life, purchasing more than 4.1 million properties and owning more than 74.4 million cars
  • More than 377.7 million roads discovered – you’ve been looking for miles and miles and miles…

To say this is an exciting time for everyone would be an understatement and there’s a lot more to look forward to in the next few weeks including our biggest fan requested feature – Route Creator, coming on Oct. 25.

Forza Horizon 4 is available on Xbox One and PC (included with Xbox Game Pass).
