E3 2018: Forza Horizon 4 Edinburgh Looks Perfect


We’ve been scouring through each second of the Forza Horizon 4 launch trailer and can now comfortably confirm that Edinburgh will be one of the cities featured in the game. The Forza Horizon 4 Edinburgh shots we see in the trailer show cars screaming past the Scott Monument – a Victorian Gothic structure that dates back to the early 19th century, with Edinburgh Castle in the background.

Forza Horizon 4 brings the franchise to the home of Playground Games: Britain. It will include an array of new features such as seasonal changes, 60FPS on console, purchasable property and custimisable avatars. The social side of things will also take the spotlight in Forza Horizon 4, with all new easy to use chat shortcuts and an always-online aspect where all players will be experiencing the same season, weather conditions, and day/night cycle as you.

Compare the Google Street-View photo of the location to the quick snap we grabbed out of the E3 2018 Xbox Press Conference trailer below:

Xbox also announced during the E3 2018 press conference that they have acquired Playground Games, securing them under the Microsoft Studios umbrella.

Forza Horizon 4 will be available on October 2, 2018 on Xbox One and Windows PC platforms, and will be available day 1 to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. For more information, head to the official Forza Horizon 4 website here.
