Well, the first details are out. I for one am chuffed to bits that it's based here, we only need a new GTA London and I'll be fully satisfied and can give up gaming forever. Or something.

E3 trailer:

E3 Demo:

Who says nothing good comes from E3?

The map is obviously the UK but appears to be more focused on Scotland if I'm not mistaken and maybe Wales to some extent.

So far I've identified the following new cars:

First generation Range Rover
MGB GT
Eagle Speedster returning
Black cab (LTI FX4)
McLaren Senna
Morris Minor of some description
Rally Fiesta

Additionally, the following have been found in Forza files:

Bond DB5
Peel P50
Escort XR3i
New Mustang
Frogeye Sprite
TVR Speed 12 (finally)
Morgan Cross-eye Supersports

I personally will be pre-ordering the VIP version as usual with a focus on getting some Youtube content early this time, instead of waiting until the game is two years old to start.

I'm so torn on this. Horizon 3 has performance problems to this day. It lags whenever anything happens in the background on my PC. Incoming chat message? Lag spike. Play a Youtube video on second monitor? Game locked to 30 FPS. Sometimes the game just locks itself to 30 or 20 FPS for no reason until restart. Quite often it crashes on load screens. And it never works online until I do a weird procedure to reset my Teredo adapter.

That said it's probably my favorite game of all time, one of the very few I'm happy to pay full price for with season pass (you haven't played the game until you've won a hill climb on Blizzard mountain in a RWD sports car without snow tires). I'm certainly excited for 4 I just hope they've worked out the issues with the stupid UWP platform.

Also no VR :(

I'm still playing it, not quite as much as I did but every so often. Really enjoyed the Fortune Island DLC but after I completed everything I got bored of map quite quickly and headed back to the mainland, now I'm playing around with things like off road trials in the mountains and some spec races against the AI.

I've really been enjoying Forzathon live while I've been playing and came across Viper completely by accident one evening, then it pulled its party trick and he disappeared. :rolleyes:

I probably didn't see you due to bad vision and bailed for a bigger lobby in order to increase the chances of getting enough people to finish it. Sorry!

We'll have to convoy next time. :)

Had some fun yesterday.

Realised you could get a widebody kit for the 70s 911 Carrera RS. It looks totally amazing. May be my new favourite car, with a maxxed out standard engine rather than turbo or 4.0L F6.



Also got the VW Campervan and put the 2.0L turbo'd F6 in it. With RWD, it spins up the wheels in every gear and won't go in a straight line easily unless you drive around in 5th and 6th. :driving: It became pretty predictable with AWD although not quite as hilarious.

At the end of my session I also got the Mini barnfind, which seems pretty hilarious with the rally engine on first impressions.

I just tried the demo and it seems to run OK on my not-so-hi-end system. Maybe I'll purchase the full game :unsure:

If you subscribe to Xbox Live you can play the game 'for free'. When I checked, its about £8/month. May work out cheaper if you get tired of games quickly, as opposed to buying the whole game.

I'm totally up for joining for some games, if our time zones match up. :)

OMG. '91 M3 with a fully maxxed out V10. No AWD. Such a hilarious hotrod.

It lights up in 4th gear and does 240mph... :driving:

So I just bought the Ultimate Edition. Praying to M$ Gods that their glorious Store lets me download and install the game without issues 🙏

Still getting used to seeing Viper on the occasional leaderboard while driving...

For those who are actively playing I can highly recommend getting the Hoonigan RS200 which is available through the Forzathon this week. With the racing V8 it's so much fun to drive. Mental acceleration and torque.

Raced against his Drivatar tonight, dammit....

Annoyed that I missed out on the Regalia monster truck, I don't agree with these one-off chances to get cars, are they just trying to keep the auction house going or something?

Coincidentally while trying to 100% the weekly forzathon, I applied a 5/5 star S2 998 tune onto the Hoonigan RS200. Jesus it's rapid offroad. It creamed everything else. Can recommend. :driving:

Also, sup with people queuing with a slammed down Lambo when the adventure clearly states "S2 Dirt"? It didn't work out well for them... :D

It's a so-so trick at trying to keep people playing, I guess. I'm not a massive fan either.
