Microsoft Buys 4 Games Studios as Work Starts on Next Xbox

Microsoft Buys 4 Games Studios as Work Starts on Next Xbox

And while Forza Horizon 4 might not be the biggest surprise of E3, it brings an interesting new wrinkle to the beloved open-world racing series - and is as gorgeous and fun as the franchise has ever been. The game is set in Britain and features dynamic seasons in a shared open world where you play with the entire community. It'll be the first videogame appearance for McLaren's track-focused hypercar, and it's rendered in stunning detail for XBox One and PC users, along with a host of other exotic cars, including (but far from limited to) the Aston Martin Vulcan, Lamborghini Centenario and Pagani Huayra. A few of our favourites include the Metro 6R4 (seen sliding through a farmyard) and the Ariel Nomad, but the Forza franchise is also known for expanding its vehicle selection over time, so no doubt things will improve further as time goes on. Microsoft then emphasized that point by pouring autumn leaves from the ceiling onto the crowd of thousands in the theater. In the demo below, you can see the game in action, including the new dynamic seasons system, which adjusts the weather periodically and creates different driving experiences and events to keep players coming back for more.
