Forza Horizon to get demo before October release

Playground Games has confirmed that there will be a demo for the latest game in the Forza series, Forza Horizon hitting Xbox Live before the game's release this October.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com during a press preview event in London the game's design director Ralph Fulton said "there's going to be a Xbox Live demo out, and I think that's going to be absolutely critical in convincing people who are going, 'They better not have ruined Forza!'

"They'll be able to pick it up and go, 'Okay, I see what they've done here'. And equally, the people who are like 'I didn't get on with Forza Motorsport for whatever reason, is this for me?', I think the Xbox Live demo is going to be a great way for them to pick it up and see how this is different."

Heading to next week's Eurogamer Expo? You'll be able to try Forza Horizon out for the first time publicly in the UK and developer, Playground Games will be holding a Developer Session on the Friday of the show.

Glad to hear it! It'll hopefully bring in a new audience who have been on the fence about it. I'm personally really looking forward to the game.

It's a smart move. I'm getting it anyway because a friend works at Playground Games and I'll always get whatever game he works on (thankfully his last two were Mass Effect 2 & 3 and they weren't horrible) and he seems upbeat on this, so that's a good thing. That said, I am a huge Forza Motorsport fan so seeing something that looks like a cross between Test Drive Unlimited and DiRT can be a little unnerving, but the talent in that studio is huge and easily amongst Britains best, and their experience is in driving games! (Split/Second, PGR/Blur, Codemasters etc.)

Ive got this one as a pre order but a demo is always good just to see how the game handles.

I've never been one for the Forza franchise but the new direction is certainly moving it towards my kind of racing game (BURNOUT). So I look forward to trying out this demo come October.

Got the game pre-ordered anyway but a demo will be good just for a taster! Looking forward to it :)
