Microsoft – Forza Horizon 4 Preorders Tracking “Well Ahead” of Expectations.

Playground Games’ Forza Horizon series continues with the upcoming Forza Horizion 4, this time set in a fictional United Kingdom.  The open world racer has continued to impress everyone at E3 with new features like dynamic seasons, Team Adventure co-op, and shared world racing with up to 72 players instead of the AI influenced Drivatars.  It was shown at Microsoft’s presentation in all its full 4k glory

With all the media buzz surrounding the game, what do gamers think of all this hype?  Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg has been in conversation with GamesIndustry.Biz, pre-orders are tracking “well ahead” of what Microsoft expected. Furthermore, they’re ahead even of 2016’s Forza Horizon 3.

“So our expectation is that Forza Horizon 4 is going to be the biggest and best-selling Forza game that we’ve ever launched,” Greenberg said. “Currently, our pre-order tracking is well ahead of where we want and tracking ahead of where we were with Forza Horizon 3.  So the early indicators are really good. And the fantastic news is that Forza Horizion 4 will be included in XBox Game Pass on launch date.  This will allow it to reach another set of gamers who may never have played or bought the game.”

Forza Horizon 4 is yet another reason to own the Xbox Game Pass, which retails for £7.99 per month in the UK. As the racing genre of games has a massive following lets hope that the game servers are able to handle such a large influx of players?  How many servers will there be? That remains to be seen, but thankfully the game is still playable offline. The game will be available in both physical and digital formats.  The ‘Ultimate’ digital version is a ‘Play Anywhere’ title so with be playable on both Xbox and Windows 10

Forza Horizon 4 launches on October 2nd for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
