Forza Horizon 4 First Impression: You Can Play the Demo As Well.
(AfroGamers.com) Forza Horizon 4 Demo is now live and you can download the file which is 28GB in size. Developer Playground Games will release the game in October this year but the studio is letting players try the game. So if you haven’t pre-ordered Forza Horizon 4, this is the chance to try the game before you purchase it.
Forza Horizon 3 was an excellent racing game and it was clearly the best game in the series. Now FH4 is the fourth title in the ‘Forza Horizon’ club and is the eleventh installment in the game series. Should we expect a higher level of technical excellence and innovation this time? The demo and hands-on previews suggest that something amazing is on the way.
The game will be available for the Xbox One and PC platforms and it’s ready to surprise you with stunning graphics. While driving the cars, gameplay looks so realistic that it will make you question the quality of other racing simulators. Whether you’re driving offroad in mud or trying to take a big turn on a racetrack, the environment looks beautiful and all the locations of Britain featured in Forza Horizon 4 feel real. The graphics make you want to stop and capture the beauty of Britain’s spectacular locations. If you are someone who enjoys wallpaper moments in video games, Forza Horizon 4 is the game we can highly recommend.
No matter which car you are driving, the small details like water drops on the windshield, dust and dirt particles, and leaves falling from trees are designed thoughtfully. Make sure that you pay attention to the changes in weather. Forza Horizon 4 features dynamic weather and day and night cycles.
If you’re on road, there are chances that you would be able to see all the seasons during the race. According to the season, you may be required to make certain changes in your driving style. For example, in winter, you might not want to speed up as the roads will become slippery, especially if your car’s tires are on snow. In summer, you can enjoy driving at full speed as there will be less to no puddles at all on your way but they may appear during and after a heavy rainstorm which is always unpredictable.
Summer, winter, spring, and fall are the seasons you would experience during the gameplay. To add more realism, the day and night cycles will let you drive under the sun and the moon. Visual effects, especially the particle effect during fog and sunset offer breathtaking views of Britain in Forza Horizon 4. Forza Horizon 4 feels absolutely fantastic in all weather. Driving on the dirt roads, wooded lanes, and high altitudes make the game look and sound extraordinarily good.
Hitting walls, stones, and boards significantly reduces your speed and causes damage to your vehicle. The list of cars in Forza Horizon 4 includes hundreds of vehicles and you would not want to do this to your favorite car. When you’re all set to play the game on PC or your Xbox One, you will have to complete the introductory race. You will learn about the controls and if this is the first time you’re playing a Forza Horizon game, it would be a great idea to pay extra attention to the game controls as soon after completing this race, you will be given more opportunities to test your skills in the forthcoming races.
For the first time in Forza Horizon 4, you will be able to customize your character to an extent that you will not feel like you are picking a pre-designed character. The customization options allow you to full control over your character’s fashion appearance and gears. The game unlocks different levels, features, and new options as you make progress.
For racing simulator lovers, the game is optimized well to hit 60 frames-per-second and those with high-end rigs can push the gameplay experience little further. If you’re worried about the support after the game’s launch, developer Playground Games has already confirmed that they have planned more content for the game and it will be released after the game’s launch. Some new cars will also be added to the game in the future.
