If you fancy a Sunday drive, you might want to take a look at Forza Horizon 3 [official site]. A demo for the open-world racer has arrived on Windows 10, letting folks pootle around a hunk of its virtual Australia for free. I suppose you can also drive quickly in those there races, but that seems very undignified. It’s also an opportunity to check out how much the game has improved since launch, when it was a bit wonky. You can grab the demo from the Windows Store.Here’s the official word on what’s in the demo:
“Your tour Down Under begins in classic Horizon fashion – with beautiful scenery, great driving roads, and awesome vehicles. From the moment the action begins, you are unmistakably in Australia, with all of its awe-inspiring beauty and tremendous environmental diversity. You’ll blast along ocean-side roads, and race on the beach alongside the famed Twelve Apostles landmarks. You’ll grab ludicrous air off of Danger Sign jumps buried deep in the Australian rainforests, and have a chance to get sideways through Drift Zones in Byron Bay. Once you’ve finished all the events in the demo, you’ll be able to hop online and join your fellow Forza friends in an online free-roam session to explore the demo’s map together.”
While the demo arrived on Xbone in September, we’ve had to wait. Parp parp!
Forza Horizon 3’s first expansion is due later this year, having players sit in their parked cars while they wait out icy storms and dangerous road conditions.
