Turn 10 and Playground Games have released the first details and screenshots of their upcoming Forza spin-off, Forza Horizon.
The information comes from German site, Forza Life, who claim that the game will make use of the physics engine used in Forza 4, to maintain the realistic driving seen in the series before. However, the physics will be tweaked to allow for easier off-road driving.
In addition, it seems as though we’ll be seeing 65 different types of terrain throughout the game’s Colorado setting, which will benefit from an open world environment and a dynamic day/night cycle.
There’ll be a variety of events and locations in the game, including gas stations, paint shops, car dealerships and an event type that will let players race a car against a plane.
It’s certainly a different direction for the Forza series, but it sounds like a lot of fun so far, so we can’t wait to see more of the title during Microsoft’s E3 conference, which kicks off at 17:30 GMT this Monday.
