Forza Horizon 4 Setting

We first got some hints as to what the setting for Forza Horizon 4 would be after a handful of new vehicles were added to Forza Motorsport 7. Most notably there were a lot of British cars in the mix. This is substantial as before Forza Horizon 3’s Australian setting was revealed, a load of Australian vehicles were added to Forza Motorsport 6. There had also been rumblings of a Japan setting for Forza Horizon 4, after Xbox Head of Marketing Aaron Greenberg included some artwork for the game, which included Japanese characters, as his Twitter header. He later claimed that he was “just supporting some cool fan-art”.

The British setting was confirmed for Forza Horizon 4 during Microsoft’s E3 2018 Press Conference, and will feature areas of countryside, cities and off-road segments.

For now, this is a complete collection of all the details we have on Forza Horizon 4. We'll be keeping this guide entirely up to date with all the latest information about the game, whenever any new details are revealed.
