We're here checking out the newest entry in the X Box Forza racing franchise, Forza Horizon 4. This one promises to be bigger and wilder than ever.
But, before you start your engines here are five things you need to know.
Previous entries in the Horizon series introduced dynamic day night cycles and weather.
And now the fourth entry stepped things up with the dynamic four seasons cycle.
After being introduced to each season during the game's tutorial mission, Horizon will then sync online to a global four season cycle with each season lasting about a week in real time and affecting the in-game map in some surprising ways.
This time out, the in-game Horizon Festival takes place in the United Kingdom.
And the in-game map is surprisingly a bit larger than the last game's Australia.
Developer Playground Games tells me that, with the changing seasons, you can technically consider this game to be four times as replayable.
But even discounting that, this is a sprawling open world racing playground.
450 cars will be available at launch from over a 100 manufacturers.
Though Mitsubishi and Toyota are oddly MIA, so no Evo's and only three Toyota racing trucks.
No Supra's for now.
I guess there's always room for deals, see?
During our demo we got a taste of the McLaren Senna Hero car and a choice between the Audi TTS Ford Focus RS and Dodge Charger RT for the road, and the Subaru WRX STI, Lancia Stradale and the Ford Escort RS Cosworth for the mini dirt races.
In addition to a nearly endless Number of road, dirt, and illegal street races.
The insane showcases that are the series' highlight are back.
During the demo, we raced against a freaking hovercraft in Ivan Ironman Stuart's Toyota T100 baha truck.
New to the Forza Horizon series are narrative stunt driver missions that place the player in the role of a Hollywood stunt driver challenged with amazing feats like jumping a Bugatti Kaigon as far as you can Making it look good.
The ability to select your silent protaganist is back, there are about a dozen, twenty something [INAUDIBLE]
Hipster types of various ethnicities and genders to choose from and hundreds of spoken names from the normal to the nuts that end game NPC's will speak aloud.
This time, however, you can somewhat customize your character's clothing and emotes, which show up in pre and post race cut scenes.
And unlock player homes to store your cars around the The map.
Forza Horizon 4 races onto Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles as well as PC on October 2nd.
