Microsoft Announces Forza Horizon 4 for Xbox One and PC

The E3 2018 games we saw were good, solid stuff but oddly lacking the explosions of past years. This is especially notable though considering that most haven't played a Battletoads game since the 1990s. Microsoft has made lots of noise about backward compatibility throughout the Xbox One's life cycle and we don't expect this to change with the device's replacement. The 2018 Xbox showcase was a blistering 90 minutes of exciting and diverse games, offering everything from the usual Microsoft fare (new Halo, Gears and Forza) to Japanese titles (Devil May Cry 5, Sekrio) to genuine surprises (Battletoads, Cyberpunk 2077). The racing game takes place in a shared open world that now has dynamic seasons that effect not only the entire world, but also how your vehicle drives.

The Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition comes with the game and the Car Pass as well as VIP Membership, Formula Drift Car Pack, Day One Car Pack, and "two game expansions when they become available". Still, I'm not sure if this is a turning point for the console, or just a sign that fans of the platform won't be so bereft of exclusive games.

Microsoft showcased a record 52 games at the E3 event including 18 console launch exclusives and 15 world premieres.
