When Forza Horizon 4
was announced at E3, one of the big talking points was how dynamic seasons would change the racing experience for players as well as how the UK appears during the different times of the year. In the first of four streams to run this month, developer Playground Games showcased how summer has an effect on the game.
The UK is just reaching the end of a heatwave. In trying to achieve a perfect British summer, the team has managed to reflect the weather conditions that many have just been experiencing. The trees are full of foliage, although one difference is their grass is still green. Of course, it wouldn't be a British summer without rain, but there will be less than you'll find in spring and autumn. Those of you worried about not getting a representative driving experience will be glad to know that potholes will be present in the game; however, there seems to be a complete lack of some of the more traditional British driving experiences, like speed bumps and caravans.
As well as seeing how summer can bathe the entire country in sunlight, the stream showcases new gameplay footage, more details on some of the game's features, and the developers answer some of the community questions. The stream begins at 14:20 if you don't want to be sat staring at a splash screen for quite a while.
Forza Horizon 4
and its sunshine will be appearing on Xbox One on October 2nd.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Forza Horizon 4 achievements.
