Why's the video blurred out? Either show it or don't. Seems a silly way to tease it.

The_Infected1170d ago

There's going to be a gameplay video Friday. The game sounds amazing though from what all the preview says.

Askanison41170d ago

Oh it definitely SOUNDS good. Just can't wait till we see some actual gameplay :D

I hope they keep the festival atmosphere from the first game, i loved that. They did a really good job making it feel like a celebration of cars and racing. Anyone who has been to similar events in real life will get what im talking about.

Oh man, just watching those gameplay videos of the first game in the article is making me remember just how great it was. The graphics, the setting, the feel of the driving, the festival atmosphere, it was all perfect. I seriously can't wait for FH2.

Yeah I used to be a massive dub-head (had a mkiv polo slammed on 90mm coilovers, smoothed bumpers yadda yadda) and I used to go to a few shows and I got what kind of vibe they were going for with this.

Ah man...memories:

Can't wait to see gameplay.

styferion1170d ago

agree, this is actually the first next-gen racing game that makes me excited

I'm definitely waiting to see the goods on Friday.

It's insane how similar the philosophies of Playground and Evolution are. That's why I liked Horizon more than any of the other Forza games. This fall is going to be incredible for racing fans.

Each page of the review just got better and better, cant wait to see the gameplay. Everything about the game screams next gen, when they talked about the lighting, no more separate single player/multiplayer, 700 events, 3X more drivable space, PGResque skill rankings, car meets, "Bucket lists". This game just sounds like the total package.

OH YEA for "The Cloud" haters, look at this quote regarding the elimination of singleplayer/multiplayer. "Because of the dedicated servers "The Cloud" it’s all instant. There’s no lobbies, there’s no loading; it’s just straight in, there and then." The Cloud strikes again.

christocolus1170d ago

Well most of the guys here actually came from bizzare creations, so you'd expect some good quality racing. I can't wait to see the game in motion.I'm happy with the relationship Ms has going with these 2nd party devs I.e remedy, playground,ruffian etc it needs to remain good or better still grab them and make them full 1st party. They let bizzare&bioware go they shouldn't miss this opportunity again.

Volkama1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )

They can't really "grab them and make them first party". Too risky an investment, as that deal is only as good as the notice periods written in to the employee contracts.

When Microsoft buy a first party studio it will be purely because that studio owns some valuable IPs or a well established name/brand. Otherwise they will continue to invest in specific projects with them, as that's the prudent way to take advantage of their talents.

@truefan
So like Destiny which is on multiple platforms. Yeah the cloud strikes again blah blah blah.

Allsystemgamer1170d ago

You do know those cloud features can be done through any dedicated server right?

BLow1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )

While I'm not trying to downplay the cloud too much but anyone ever hear of a game called Burnout Paradise. I know people can have selective memory sometimes but this was done on last gen. This looks like it's just building on that concept. Something I would expect on current gen consoles.

Yes, this is cool but it sounds pretty familiar. It just looks more streamlined than Paradise which is a good thing. And before people jump down my throat, I'm not saying this is bad at all. It's actually great but saying the cloud is needed for this may be stretching it a little. At least in my eyes....-_0
