Forza Horizon 2 Interview with Art Director Ben Penrose [Capsule Computers]

Zac Elawar from Capsule Computers writes:

"A few developers made the long trip ‘Down Under’ from all over the globe to attend the EB Games Expo 2014. One in particular missed his own launch party for the commitment – Ben Penrose, Art Director on Forza Horizon 2. Based out of Royal Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, England, the team at Playground Games pleasantly surprised everyone by helming an off-shoot of the previously simulation-only, circuit racer Forza Motorsport, and taking the franchise into an open-world, more arcade-y setting with Forza Horizon in 2012, and doing so in amazing fashion. A critical hit, its sequel looks to be even more so, proving the developers’ mettle. We got to spend about ten minutes with Ben, who got into the country at the start of the week, avoiding jetlag and drinking his coffee bright and early before doors opened for the public…well, at least attempting to! (Sorry, Ben! Got ya twice! I’m so horrible…)"

Great interview, and one helluva job crafting this masterpiece called Forza Horizon 2. For those gamers who read Topgear magazine, July 2014 UK edition has a segment in it called road trip. if you can take a look at it, and you will get a taste of the accuracy that went into the simply beautiful landscape/scenery of Forza. It looks like a piece of the blueprint for FH2. Please if you can, check it out. Game on.
