Further blurring the lines between Xbox and PC gaming, the people behind Microsoft's premier racing franchise have announced that Forza Horizon 4 will be available on Steam starting March. But before you go reaching for that credit card and switching over to the online marketplace, we're giving a copy away to one of you fine people.
Despite first coming out in 2018 for Xbox One, Forza Horizon 4 is the latest game in the entire Forza franchise. Set in the streets and winding backroads of Britain, Horizon 4 notably features all four seasons represented in-game rotating on a weekly basis and more than 600 cars to collect and digitally hoon. We once called it the best arcade racing game of all time and its visuals are realistic enough for one guy to have spent quarantine impressively recreating an entire mock issue of Evo magazine with in-game screenshots.
A new, next-gen (I am choosing to call them next-gen consoles until those things finally move out of unobtanium status. Thanks, scalpers!) Forza Motorsport game is in the works and will be playable...sometime in the future.
Those opting to jump into the wonderful world of Horizon 4 for the first time (or rediscover it) on Steam next month, however, will be able to cross-play FH4 online with players on Xbox, Windows 10, and even folks streaming the game via Game Pass Ultimate on Android devices.
