Yesterday they rolled out an official Top Gear crossover story for the Great British driving sandbox.

Forza Horizon 4: LEGO Speed Champions hits the bricks today

Forza Horizon 4, Playground Games's sandbox race-a-thon has always had a shaky grasp on reality, but it's entirely lost it with today's LEGO Speed Champions expansion. The last major part of its expansion pass, it adds a blocky LEGO map to explore, with its own set of challenges and some up-scaled plastic versions of real cars. The driving is a little bit less realistic here, of…

Forza Horizon 4 was fun, joyful and generous - one of our favourites of last year (scroll down) - and so this Lego DLC is in some senses the perfect colission. Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Speed Champions introduces a world of colourful blocks to the racing game, with Lego cars to drive and the same seasonal changes as the base game. It'll be out in…

Forza Horizon 4 axes Carlton and Floss dances, adds cab-driving and Mitsubishis

Forza Horizon 4's latest update giveth and taketh away. While generous in how much Playground Games are adding free to their driving sandbox, the party is over for the Carlton and Floss dances, which have been patched out. Not surprising, given that they're the subjects of two separate legal battles with Fortnite developer Epic Games. Still, it's not all bad - update five adds seven…

Forza Horizon 4 now tootling around Fortune Island

While I was being dragged down to the depths of England last week (business reasons), Forza Horizon 4 was pushing higher into Scotland with the launch of its first expansion, Fortune Island. The fictional new hunk of rock has sprouted off Scotland, seemingly drawing inspiration for roads and landmarks from a number of places around the highlands and islands, including Skye. It's a wild and…

Forza Horizon 4’s first expansion will take players to the mysteriously named Fortune Island, up off the northern coast of Scotland. There’ll be dramatic weather, treasure to hunt, and, at least if you’re anything like me, plenty of cliffs to drive straight off. It’s coming on December 13th, and you can take a peek at it below:

Forza Horizon 4 is getting a route creator in this week’s update

I definitely have too much to do in Forza Horizon 4. I’m a bit smitten with it, and consequently I’ve spent more time with it than any other racing game since Burnout Paradise, but my map is constantly overflowing with races and events. I can't drive a few meters without bumping into another dirt race or cross-country exhibition. This week’s update adds yet another distraction,…

Parp parp! Forza Horizon 4 is out now

You are cordially invited today to tear around a cut-down chunk of northern Britain with a serious disrespect for road safety and the craft of dry stone walling, as Forza Horizon 4 launched this morning. And the latest arcade-y open-world racer from Playground Games is a good'un, Stirling Matheson said in our Forza Horizon 4 review. "It was fun and relaxing and not too difficult…

Take Forza Horizon 4 for a scenic British test drive with this free demo

I'm not much of a car person, but even I can appreciate Forza Horizon 4's open-world ambitions. Set across a large chunk of Britain's twisting roads and scenic hedgerows, players explore and compete in events both static and scheduled in a wide variety of (mostly) expensive-looking cars. You can give it a spin today, as a free demo just popped up on the Microsoft Store.…

The next race 'em up in Playground Games' fine Forza Horizon series will zoom around a land near and dear to our own hearts.
