Forza Horizon demo skidding on to Xbox Live October 9th

Microsoft, Playground Games and Turn 10 have announced that a demo of the graphically incredible Forza Horizon will be available to download from Xbox Live on October 9th (for Gold members, Silver members will gain access a week later.)

The demo has been designed to give players a to whet fans' appetite for open world automotive action that will be the centrepiece of the game. In the demo, players will get a chance to experience the Colorado of Forza Horizon, driving a number of different cars across a variety of different event types, from Horizon Festival events taking place in the dusty, dirt roads of the upper hills, to a climactic street race that find players winding up, around, and over the fictional Finley Dam.

Several of the events in the Forza Horizon demo will automatically become Rivals Mode events after completing them, allowing Forza fans to compete against one another to set the fastest time. In addition, players will be able to drive and explore a section of the overall game map to get a feel for the kinds of open-road adventure that is featured in the full version of Forza Horizon.

All players who download the demo and then purchase and play the full game will receive a specially designed custom 2013 SRT Viper GTS, which was designed to highlight Forza Horizon's 'gone-gold' status. This rare livery will only be available to those who download the demo and purchase and play the game.

Forza Horizon is heading into stores October 26th and you can preorder your copy at ShopTo today.

Looks like I'll get the demo and see how I feel, although I love the odd racing game, I've never really gave Forza much time.

I would have downloaded this but no point after the announcement of a full games worth of DLC.

I will give the demo a go but as a long time Forza fan I just can not get myself excited for this game. I just don't think it is within keeping of the Forza franchise.
