TA Podcast: Forza Horizon 4, Telltale Layoffs, Fortnite Cross-Play and More

By Dave Horobin, 3 months ago
Welcome to episode 139 of the TrueAchievements podcast. Before we get into what we've covered on this week's show, we'd like to thank all of you that took the time to provide some feedback on the format of the show. The general consensus was that reading out long lists of new achievements and new releases were boring a low point, so we've made some changes this week to only discuss the bigger games and the ones that really interest us.

We've also been swapping around some ideas internally, and one of the suggestions we thought might be worth exploring is switching from a solely TA focussed podcast to a TGN podcast, where we can discuss and debate all of the latest news and games from both Xbox and PlayStation. Of course, that would mean we'd mostly be covering the same things we normally would be as most of the big games are multi-platform, with the odd discussion around some PS4 exclusives thrown in for good measure. If you have any thoughts (both pros and cons) on this idea, please let us know in the comments below.

With all that out of the way, let's get back to this week's episode.

On this week's show, we give you the chance to win an Xbox One download code of your choosing from our giveaway sack (leave us a comment in the thread below to enter), we give you our impressions on Forza Horizon 4, we chat about last week's surprising news that Telltale have laid off the vast majority of its workforce, we cover all of the big announcements from the latest Inside Xbox stream, and Jack and Ollie dig holes in Construction Simulator 2. We also discuss the rest of this week's biggest news announcements, take a look at what we've been playing over the past seven days, chat about our ID@Xbox streams, look at the games coming our way over the next seven days, and answer your questions, including the question of the week.
