Watch Us Play the Gorgeous Forza Horizon 4 on Xbox One X in 4K

See our demo run from the Xbox E3 show floor.

Forgive me for I have failed you. While playing a demo of the upcoming Forza Horizon 4 at E3 this year, I was instructed to capture some of the footage to share on our video channels on account of how good Forza Horizon 4 looks. While I'm not the best at racing games, I did my best to show off a 1st place run, and I fell just short of that.

Forza Horizon 4 takes place in Britain and the two biggest new features are persistent online play with other players dropping in-and-out of your game, and seasonal changes. During our demo only the seasons were previewed for us, and we got to try out the game as it shifted through all four seasons: fall, winter, spring, and summer. You can see our video below, along with a brief trailer at the end.

Each season had a different objective and a gold medal for completion. I got a gold in all seasons except fall where, ironically, in my desire to come in first place I neglected the fact that I had to hit top speed. In an effort to not embarrass myself in front of you all, I missed out on a perfect Forza Horizon 4 demo run and for that I apologize.

The Forza Horizon 4 footage you see here is captured on the Xbox One X in 4K, but playing it in person is the only way to give the game justice. Forza Horizon encourages a bit more freedom in how players drive and you can feel that freedom in the game feel of the controls. They're intuitive, but more importantly, simple enough that even novice players can shred across the British countryside and feel like a driving god.

Forza Horizon 4 was announced as part of Xbox's E3 2018 press conference. For more on the newest Forza game check out our complete Forza Horizon 4 guide.
