Forza Horizon 2's Creative Director Ralph Fulton talked about the new possibilities that come with a dynamic weather system.
The game looks pretty good for an open world game , Horizon 1 was awesome so i expect this to be awesome too .
Horizon 1 was super fun and I'm not a big race fan, but removing the cars from the closed track was huge for the franchise
does it have cardboard cut out crowds though?
Yes! i watched a youtube video last month when they was freeroaming, and at the festival, when they was driving slow through the area, you can clearly see the crowds multiplied and cardboard style just like FM5. Despite the cardboard crowds, the game is still gonna be interesting to look at while driving. That map though, looks fun to explore on it. @HollywoodLA Keep dreaming about it because it's never gonna happen. @LAWSON72 Stop it please. @oSHINSAo You are right! when it rains, it does not form on the vehicle, but it forms when on the windows and the windshield because of the windshield wipers being on.
You can pretty clearly see the rain bouncing off the car when it rains, it changes direction with the flow of the wind as well. Stop making stuff up.
No they are 3D, Or mixed, but I know for sure there are 3D crowds. Here is a blurry but best screen shot I could find :/ http://www.forzahorizon2.co...
lol couldn't help yourself there eh? slow clap.
No lol. If you watch videos and screen shot them their 3D. It's possible there are some But majority of them are 3D
"If conditions are right, we can simulate mathematically accurate rainbows in our world, creating these stunning moments of incredible natural beauty. Dynamic weather means we also were able to include working windshield wipers in every car in the game," Wow now that is impressive.
Amazing how far games have come. MS just filed a patent for a service called Forza Hub. I guess it has something to do with all things Forza related. Can't wait to try out this game. You should check out the infection mode game demo and the 21mins gamescom preview of FH2. The game is awesome. The night races look spectacular.
Why's this in the ps4 section?
i know bro, i found a lot of PS4 Articles in the Xbox One Sections... n4g keeps feeding the fanboys
Dont you want to see a Forza vs Driveclub comments? Admit it :P
Probably was approved too quickly.
@Disagrees: As far as I'm aware, neither title is going to earlier systems. Are PS4/XB1 only. So then why if any real consideration was given to this submission, why are those listed as well?
Examiner - Clickbait/rehashing old info.
Be careful. If you question some of the things that happen on this site, they'll report you for trolling or being off topic. In short, some people on this site are petty as hell.
and then you get banned for voicing your opinion like i have lmao
This site is full of trolls but I thought that it was obvious enough.
I'll buy when it comes to #PS4.
<_< can we all gather for prayer for this lost soul... Lord God, in Heaven, we have a person who can not read well. We ask you to give that person the strength to click on articles and read them. We ask that you give them the wisdom to check publishers of a title. Oh Lord please bestow upon this person great desire to not post on N4G, Amen!
Lol I couldn't help but chuckle cause this actually sounded like a genuine and proper prayer. +1 for proper prayer.
AMEN and AMEN!!!!! LOL
One person clearly not getting the joke lol.. Ouch... haha. : )
So .. I dont think its related to the PS4 section !!
Has no cars?
I love Driveclub, too, but don't fuel the fire. This article is about Forza Horizon 2 and its weather system. I'm glad this is all dynamic. Seeing the same animations over and over is something that should be left in last gen.
was rushed. And still lacking spirit?
LOL! oh I can get into this but I'll just say DRIVECLUB!!!! Horizon 2 for what its worth, look great.
There is only one thing i didn't see in the demos, when moving and raining, drops of water doesn't from with car speed
Looking forward to this title this fall. The X1 has a great lineup!
I wish there was a way to try each DriveClub, Forza, and Project Cars before I decide on one this fall. All definitely have unique differences, I just hate having to use metacritic to help me decide.
I thought DriveClub was free? At least for PS+ subscribers.
There is a free version with less content for PS+ subscribers. They have confirmed that you can, in fact, platinum the game with that version. You can upgrade to the full version for $50 though. Not much of a discount, I know, but people would take advantage of the price difference if it were much lower.
I got to try them all at E3! Your wallet is going to hate me for this, but I suggest all three of them. Haha. Driveclub handles like a dream. It's that perfect balance between arcade and sim we've been looking for since we got a taste with R4: Ridge Racer Type 4. The constant challenges keep things fresh, too. This will be my addiction this fall. Gorgeous, too. It's just insane what they've been able to do with it. Also, it's an audiophile's wet dream. Forza Horizon 2 plays like Forza Horizon, but smoother. What I love about this series is how you can just sit and drive for hours, not really caring where you're going or what you're doing. Because of the increase in visuals and attention to detail on Horizon 2, I'll probably spend whole weekends just enjoying the sunrise and sunset in this game. For someone who absolutely loves cars and driving, in general, it's a must. Project CARS is the one I've had the most time with. I was in the alpha for a long time. It's something that will be progressing long after it releases. If you're looking for realistic physics and precision driving, this is what you want. Plus, if you get it on PC, the damage modelling will probably only get better and better with mods! :D Until then, I suggest Track Mania, if you have a decent PC.
FH2 and project CARS both will have a demo, and Driveclub will have the free ps+ version so you can try them all before buying. Good news!
@WeAreLegion lol great, so what're saying is this is not going to be an easy decision? I've been getting so hyped for another racing game, that I broke out the PS2 and starting playing GT3 (my favorite one). @vikingland1 & UbiquitousClam, you guys are right, I forgot about that on PS+. Good to know that Forza will have a demo too. This is not going to be an easy decsion.
IDK, looks like FH2 is a more complete game, project cars and DC are eye candy games. If you have both consoles you could just get FH2 and DC.
Lol i wish, limited funds my friend :)
I am on the same boat. I am getting an XBO in the fall season, FH2 will be my game of choice. Its a bigger more complete game with more to do than Project cars or DC. ALSO it looks great! sure not the bleeding eye candy that the other games are due to it being open world. but its great regardless.
Forza Horizon 2 multiplatform confirmed.
Sorry to disappoint..but X360 version has no weather and runs on last gen engine and developed by another team. For the ultimate experience you'll need the xb1.
It wasn't even a good try tho Shakka. Come on man.
I didn't know the game was coming out on 360 lol. :(
Can't wait for the end of September. This game looks great and will be one of the best racing game in this new generation. Enjoy XB1 fans.
