See the Full Halo Track in Forza Horizon 4

The track will be playable in all four seasons.

The teams from 343 Industries and Playground Games appeared together on the monthly Forza video update to give a first look at the Halo Showcase Event coming to Forza Horizon 4 when the game comes out next month.

The Halo franchise and Forza go ways back, as showcased by yesterday's Forza Monthly Update. The M12 FAV, or "Warthog" was first seen in Forza Motosport 4's gallery mode, and first playable in Forza Horizon 3. In the upcoming Forza Horizon 4, there will be a new event dedicated to demonstrating the new and improved Warthog shredding through the British countryside.

According to 343 Industries' lead writer Jeff Easterling, the new Warthog is designed for speed, so it comes sans weaponry and is about 25 percent smaller and sleeker. The 343 and Playground teams then went on to go on a friendly, inter-company race which gives a complete look at the full Halo Showcase Event track.

The race begins on the beach reminiscent of previous Halo titles before transitioning towards a more rural British racetrack, though littered with objects from the Halo universe and even a Pelican and some enemy Banshees.

Forza Horizon 4 art director Terrance Newell also confirmed that events like the Halo Showcase will come back at later times, "remixed" with different seasons. Seasons are Forza Horizon 4's big new feature and lets racers drive through tracks in all four seasons, and the Halo Showcase can also be played in all four seasons. Newell says the Warthog is particularly impressive during the winter.

Forza Horizon 4 is coming out on October 2 for Xbox One and PC. The deluxe edition will give player early access to Horizon 4 on September 28. While no Toyota vehicles will be playable, all four seasons will be there. Check out our Forza Horizon guide for more news, trailers, and previews.
