      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

      BEWARE

      VERY few people EVER got their "pre-order" car from Best Buy last time.
      I don't care WHICH car BB has attached to it, they WON'T get my business this time.

      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.

      It's in one of the videos from E3. Similar to the "Wrecks" in TDU2.

      From what I understand, modifying is in (i.e. wheels, lowering, bodykits, paint, etc.) but tuning may not be (spring rate, gear ratio, sway bars, etc)

      Two recent pics. They appear very proud of their lighting system at dusk.

      Does that Daytona Coupe exhaust look like just a texture to anyone else? Full res here: http://t.co/Dlc358tO

      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.

      Seriously considering buying an xbox just for forza. No good racers on the PC and the PS3 is broken.

      Sean A, check out pCARS. It's still in beta but it's looking really REALLY nice.


      This Forza Horzion has me on a seesaw. On one end I want it, no I NEED it. On the other hand I'm like blah, whatever.. I'm gearing to get a normal edition, no LCE

      Aside from the near EA-level of DLC milking they do, I really do appreciate Turn 10 as a developer and respect what they've been able to accomplish with the Forza series in such a short span of time. I was a Gran Turismo die-hard and they've stolen my racing heart.

      I played the hell out of Forza 2 and 3, and am playing FM4 on a nearly daily basis (a few races to several hour stints). I'll throw the extra $20 their way for the LCE as I feel they deserve it, and I do enjoy the little goodies you get.

      I really enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited, so if this plays anything like that with Forza's brilliant physics engine (which it should since it uses it), I think I'm going to be in love for a very long time.

      I pre-ordered the normal version, of all of the Forza games I've purchased, none of the LCE stuff has ever really made me want to spend the extra cash.

      Edit: also

      It has a midnight club vibe to it. I couldn't get into that title. I'm still not convinced to buy it.

      I dunno man...



      vs



      the NOS boost and "powerups" in Mindnight Club ruin it for me, and the rap really kicks it over the edge.

      I just hope one of the three radio stations will have decent music I can get into in Horizon. Otherwise music is getting turned off.

      Do we get any credit for any of the umpteen DLC packs we've downloaded for Forza 4?

      likely not for DLC. But depending on how far along you made it in previous FM games, you are gifted cars when you start FH.

      Obviously the NOS won't be there but the point A to point B and hunting down challenges will be.I don't want just traffic dodging.. I can arrange that in Fm4. The limited tuning is discouraging for me too.
