A trailer for Forza Horizon has leaked out onto the net.
I don't think I understand what this is or what this means.
I am glad they are trying different things for the Franchise,although a fall 2012 release seems a bit odd. You would think that they would want more development time and release it for Xbox 720 in 2013 [email protected] Uncharted series also spawned 4 games this generation alone, but they can because nobody is tired of it yet,and that's because it keeps getting better. Milking is what activision is doing with the COD franchise the last 4 games are practically the same. especially the modernwarfare series
Autodidactdystopia, I'm not sure that's true. Look at it again. I think the very first scene might be game engine. And the last scene. A few more are included here and there. I downloaded it and stopped it on a few scenes and I thing some of that is game.
Oh cool. A Forza game that's aimed directly at hipster "culture" of today. It's great... But I think I'll wait for Forza Sesame Street crossover...
Those are not even close to hipsters. Those people were having fun. Hipsters would rather write a song about the meaning of fun then post in on their blog.
MS rollin out the games
Already another one? That will be 4 Forza Games this generation
It's probably not another "forza motorsport", but rather a sort of spinoff, kinda like they created shift for NFS.
Is still a forza game. You can spin it all the ways you want, but it's still forza with cars and racing.
Of course it is... that's the point of using the name.
Yeah, that makes annual Forza games a better idea...spinoffs. /s
I'll wait until they make a bad one before complaining. Some people don't mind having a great game every year you know...
no shi*t, Sherlock. nice job on trying to spin it on me. my comment was referring to you guys going, 'its a spinoff not related to forza', to avoid the fact that, MS is milking the franchise. but you already knew that, its why you edited your original comment.
I wonder if this will be a PGR type game. I hope it is as I really liked the PGR and MSR games and now the studio that made the game has been shut down it would be good to see Turn 10 pickup the game or give it a different name. I really like Forza 4 IMO its the best racing game this gen as I have not been able to put it down which is unlike me with car games as I play there for a month or so and then pick them up again every now and again where with Forza 4 I have not put it down since it came out. I also think a PGR type game by turn 10 will help bring on the next Forza game too.
"Is still a forza game. You can spin it all the ways you want, but it's still forza with cars and racing." By that logic, do you know how many Gran Turismo titles have been released on PS3 this gen? Gran Turismo HD Concept Gran Turismo Prologue Gran Turismo 5 Gran Turismo 5 XL and on top of that there were several retail copies of demos that sold at retail following Prologue and preceding 5. Microsoft's stupid mistake is calling this a Forza game if it happens to be a non-sim Spinoff.
Gran Turismo HD Concept - demo released on the PS Store Gran Turismo Prologue - Retail/PSN release Gran Turismo 5 - Retail/PSN release Gran Turismo 5 XL - Exact same game as GT5 but with all DLC included. That is one demo, two full games and a repackage. Did I miss something??
@killerhog I dunno if you were referring to me, but I edited my comment cause of a spelling mistake... Also, I never said it's not related to forza, but that it won't be a "forza motorsport". Finally, I don't share your fascination or obsession with "milking" and have no point or interest in defending or boycotting sequels of game people enjoy.
@kaveti6616 Gran Turismo HD Concept that was not a game nor a demo it was just tech demo uesing gt4 engin for what ps3 can do and it was free Gran Turismo Prologue it was game selled for 30-40$ for what gt5 well be Gran Turismo 5 is the real game Gran Turismo 5 XL it was just pack fore gt5 with all the dlc so it is not a new game So they was 1 gt game and a half for these gen
Yeah, they really need to spend more time on each game rather than rushing them out as fast as possible. Forza 4 was enough to make me write this series off completely after how disappointing it was, it felt more like DLC than a new game. I think the community feels the same way too given how dead it was online, but then again even Forza 3 was a ghost town a month after launch. Hopefully one day Turn 10 actually attempts to compete with all the other great racing games out there rather than reveling in obscurity.
Forza has improved with every release, as for reveling in obscurity. It is without doubt the best racing game available on consoles and yes I do own GT5 and I still play it. The online is fantastic and there are still plenty of people to race. With rivals mode aswel forza is endless
@AgentWD40 Geez, you sound like a ranting Dan Greenawalt.
Pump the breaks. How many Uncharted games have we had? How many R&C? How many...oh never mind.
Two R&C and three UC, 2 & 3 < 4.
4 uncharteds actually, if you count golden abyss.
uncharted, it's a story your listening to. gameplay is important, but the story is as much important. Forza, well I don't think there's a story to tell there and a lot of features could have been given into a big dlc instead of a lot of little dlcs PLUS 3 different forza games on the same generation. I like innovation, but 3 games in one gen is a lot for features. 2 games would have done the trick. GT5 needs more features too. I miss the customization of forza when I'm playing GT5. but I miss my logitech G27 when I'm playing forza. If I'm not mistaken, the forza 4 official wheel works on the ps3 and PC, but the G27 doesn't work on the 360? what the hell is this?!?!?! Microsoft should have done what I've been saying since forza 1 was out. you want to show that your game can easily beat sony's GT? put forza on the freaking PC!!!!! let us see the amazing power of your graphic engine by putting it on pc. PC fans wants a full and complete sim game since a long time and giving them forza should satisfy them.
"uncharted, it's a story your listening to. gameplay is important, but the story is as much important." You should read more books. It may blow your mind to discover how shitty video game stories are in comparison to novels that take effort.
I don't know, man. The Uncharted series is written pretty well. Look at Gears of War 3. It was written by the same person who wrote the books, which were also phenomenal! Crytek brought in an actual sci-fi writer to do Crysis 2. I haven't seen the "Fight Club" or "Nevada" of video games, but there is some amazing material.
It has been a pretty long generation though.
Forza + open world = perfection. Solid 60fps (unlike certain other racers from competing consoles), amazing handling, now with freedom to just drive around... Edit: To the people that don't know, this is the open world game being made by ex-Codemasters, ex-Bizarre team. You don't drive in tracks like mainline Forza. Some rumors say it's closer to Test Drive Unlimited, only with awesome Forza handling, unlike TDU's "boats".
Forza has good handling. The problem is...it's not realistic. If I wanted something to be more "fun" with handling, I'd go with Driver: San Francisco. The handling in that game is like an addiction! The same goes for Twisted Metal!
Look I spotted a fanboy. Too bad its not as hard as finding waldo
Looks like Forza racing, but open road tracks. Kind of a neat idea. Maybe like a simulation Need For speed? That would be a new genre.
You guys definitely know more about this then I do. I'd love an open world or Need For Speed type of Forza game. Looking forward to hearing more on this for sure. I wonder if that magazine that said Microsoft's 4 biggest franchises return this year was right. Halo 4 Forza Horizon Fable 4 or The Journey Gears Of War Exile? Food for thought.
I still have forza 4 in my backlog......need to get at that thing eventually, hopefully before another one comes out.
Great racing game, I love it.
Wonder what this is
Hmmm .......... it could be a fake.
Anyone know anything about Playground Games?
I found this :- http://www.xbox360achieveme... It's an old article that mentions a rumored 'Forza World'(4th paragraph down,) to be in production at UK dev Playground Games. Maybe this is it?
Thanks. That's awesome if they have the exec producer from Dirt and Grid, those were quality games. Good signs.
So is it gonna be like Test Drive unlimted? if so thats pretty cool. If they can make something like that but even better it would be awesome. Test Drive unlimited 2 was sort of a let down to me after the first one i loved.
If this is like TDU, then I am very excited. TDU2 was a fail and if this is similar and better, ill buy it.
Judging by the video this could be similar to the need for speed series. Kudos ton turn 10 for creating another top racing game.
to hell with this. it is the call of duty of racing. Give me PGR 5 already !
thre can only be one king ..
Not sure if Im trolling http://forzamotorsportworld...
call of duty racing? not even close lol.
The highest rated racing sim franchise this gen just keeps giving and giving to racing sim enthusiasts around the world. Did I see Porsche in that trailer.....I think I did. Turn 10 managing to get the Porsche license from EA is ground breaking. I don't see any other so called racing sim released this gen exclusively for some other console managing to get Porsche in their game. First 360 owners get not just 1 full exclusive racing sim this gen like some other people only got with their 6 year wait who only owned a certain console, but rather 360 owners got 3 of the highest rated racing exclusive racing sims this gen with a 4th on the way where each one just keeps getting better than the last. Then 360 owners get the best exclusive racing sim dlc of cars that actually matter to the racing world and car fanatics everywhere. Now 360 owners will get to play the only exclusive racing franchise to offer Porsche in their racing sim games while still being the highest rated racing sim franchise this gen. Having Porsche alone warrants a new forza game. Thank you turn 10 and MS for managing to convince EA to allow Porsche back in Forza where real car fanatics go to get their racing sim fixes.
Holy crap, you sound like a freaking marketing exec for Turn 10. Here's a hint: nobody is paying you to write out PR reports for the public, you don't have to act like a tool.
The 3 highest rated racing games of this gen, according to Metacritic: 92 - Forza Motorsport 3 91 - Forza Motorsport 4 90 - Forza Motorsport 2 Funny how that works out, no?
The highest selling racing sim this gen. Gran Turismo 5- 7.3 million Funny how that worked out, yes?
Justin Bieber albums sell good too.....
@ Forza is King This is my type of comment! +bubbles Rated E For Everyone
Im not sure if this is a "game" maybe its like what GT Acadamy was kinda????
Let's hope not.
I wonder what type of racing game it's going to be. Forza 4 is one of my favorite racing games so I'm really interested.
Next gen launch title?
...is it me, or does this look fake? O_o
that's because they didn't use any Game footage. It's supposed to generate Hype kinda like a teaser. Anyway if this game is openworld like someone people above me seems to think then it's obviosu forza would have lost some graphism ..maybe they aren't ready to show the game as it is?
Seems to be a rally style game to compete with Dirt. I don't want Forza to become a yearly title but if they make this more of a hybrid stand alone expansion pack for Forza 4 I'm all for it. Let the game access the Forza4 disc 2 cars and give the option to install the Forza4 disc 1 cars for use in this game. I would love more tracks, cars, and racing styles. What's wrong with that? We pay for it with all these annoying DLC releases, just give it too us in a single feature filled purchase. How do we even know if this is a standalone game though? This could be only an expansion pack/DLC like Halo had.
didnt 3 just come out??
Forza 3 came out in 09
did any one notice that a brand new studio is working with turn 10 on this game I wonder did MS buy them as well any ways here is the link to there site. http://playground-games.com... on there project page it says they can't talk about the game they are making until its time to announce it, well we all no what that is now.
MS should wait and see if the studio could produce a quality title before buying them
yea your right, but I meant to say was is this one of the new studios that they opened as well, I thought they just changed the name, but I see its just a new independent studio
Just more joy for the car heads woo hoo.
First scene certainly looks like a sort of Cannonball Run type of event, like a road adventure race. The concert bit seems to emulate drift races. For a couple of seconds the TopGear UK test track was again shown. Off-road race, rallye, followed by night scene so maybe night races? Scene ends with Aventador running in horizon.
I have a feeling its going to be less of a full game and more of an expansion to Forza 4. 1 year after Forza 3 came out they sold the Ultimate collection as a platinum hits repackage. It wouldn't make sense to make and entirely new and separate game built rather build on the stable of cars in Forza 4.
I think Forza sell is going down because it is release almost every year. It is really hard to add a lot more contents within such a short amount of time. It might suffer from what they called buyer fatigue (although CoD seems like an exception). The open approach of this
