While I had some hidden hopes for this game...the trailer really really put me off. I'm hoping it's just a gimmick - the Tanner Foust style voice with the X-Games "party scene" and dubstep drive me insane.
I despise that garbage...makes it look like Dirt 3 etc. (ie. completely obnoxious scenester bullsh_t ruining a decent game).
I'm really really hoping that's not involved much in the game.
I'm pretty excited about this for the most part. I actually enjoy electronic music and listen to it on a daily basis, but if I have skrillex shoved down my throat the whole time im playing this game I wont be happy -but hey its on the xbox, load your own music. I'll admit I was very skeptical at first but seeing as this game uses the same engine from Forza 4 I'm looking forward to it. That being said I see this as more of an "experiment" for Turn 10, some of the stuff they've finally added like variable time, dirt roads, etc will make great additions to the Motorsport series next go around. If everything works then hey push it to Forza 5, if it sucks...well Turn 10 didn't make it so you cant blame them directly

Great video. I don't know why running through fences and sign posts gets you more credits / respect than driving in oncoming lanes or dodging traffic, but this game just keeps looking like more and more fun. Kinect voice controlled GPS? Damn son.
When I heard that former Grid / Dirt team members were part of the new studio i was worried about how the game would drive and feel (Codemasters specialty seems to be vague steering and brake feel imo). Knowing that it uses T10's engine from Forza 4 I'm really looking forward to this game. It'll be a nice fun break away from M. Rossi.
On an unrelated note, Modern Civilization, Y U Accept Dubstep?!?!
Pre-Order Cars revealed.
if I understand correctly, you get one depending on where you pre-order from.
There will also be a "Day-1 Add On Pack" of 5 cars, a VIP car pack, and a few other things for the Day-1 crowd and the LCE people.
Not sure if I will get the LCE, I haven't ever before for FM games so I probably wont this time either.
Also, when you pre-order FH, you get a FM4 DLC code for a Dodge Challenger

Received a message over Twitter from Turn 10 saying that preorder customers in the US aren't receiving their Charger 392 from any vendors aside from Best Buy and Amazon. All other dealers aren't giving out the preorder codes under the Horizon is officially launched. That'll likely change, but an FYI in the meantime.

Ahh thanks. I always thought they protruded out more, they just seem really flat / not detailed in the Horizon pic and even the one you posted. I didn't even think to fire up FM4 to see how they modeled them in that game.
I can't seem to find an authentic "stock" pic, both of these show different exhausts and I don't know if they're genuine factory parts or aftermarket.
This one's from the Wiki page and looks closer to the Forza representation (aside from the metal strap):
Anyhow, enough off-topic. New FH pic today. Hoping they release a new video or details on a demo soon. Aside from "racing to the Festival" (which in all honesty isn't that appealing to me) I don't know what there is to actually DO in the game.
