Forza Horizon 2 is 'three times size of original'

Forza Horizon 2's increased size and scope has been discussed by Playground Games.

The open-world driving game, which takes place in southern Europe, has three times more drivable space than its predecessor and over 100 hours of content.

"If there's a field or a vineyard in Tuscany which you can drive over in real life, we want you to be able to do that in our game," creative director Ralph Foulton told journalists including Digital Spy at E3 2014.

"What that means for us as designers, is we now have three times the space to fill with amazing things to do in cars.

"Not just races, but non-racing gameplay as well. Challenges, secrets, discoverables, things that encourage you to point your car in any given direction and drive to see what you find."

In addition to returning circuit and point-to-point races, Forza Horizon 2 introduces endurance races and new cross-country events.

Meanwhile, showcases are back and "bigger and more spectacular than ever"...

Awesome, big maps with cars are great, not so much with just people. I hate having to walk so far in games *Looks at DayZ

I'll take this opportunity to ask if anyone wants to start a club on this game, like how i did with DriveClub a few months back.

If anyone is interested in having some MP fun on that huge-ass map together, just add me on X1 - Lukas Japonicus

Those BlueRay Discs are awesome, huh?

Not really devs get lazy with compressing their games and just saying but if you have the download speeds digital does the job just as well considering you have to install the disc anyway nowadays. I think it is only on Xbone for media and the small addition of convince of less discs because as I said games are installed and multiple discs will do the job just as well (like on PC physical). No bluray would not handicap the system

the future of blue Ray is Clouded bro.

I give it another 3 or 4 years.

AWESOME. I can't wait to explore that map, i would have been happy with a map the same size of the first game. Should be truly epic with the new weather effects.
