      [EDIT] Too slow.

      ^^ Open world driving game using Forza's physics engine with point to point races and presumably track racing at the "festival".

      Although it's being published by Microsoft / Turn 10 and uses mostly T10 assets, the game is being developed by a studio made largely of ex Codemasters employees it seems.

      To be honest I'm not sure what to expect, but if the gameplay is anything like Test Drive Unlimited with countryside driving and exploration with different race types and tasks I'm expecting it to be a good amount of fun.

      I love car reveals.

      I hope they're also including some of the newer muscle from the recent car packs (Boss 302, Camaro ZL1). I wouldn't mind the 60th Anniversary Corvette 427 convertible either.

      btw, this would probably take Polyphony 12 years if they are going to make something like this...

      I'm stoked the rabbit and lambo countach are in!

      I preordered the normal version of the game at GS last week but didn't receive anything. I thought we were to get a code for FM4 for an exclusive car. Anyone know?

      Amazon will email you the code right away, but I believe everyone else sends it on a card with your actual Horizon game when you pick it up.

      The car is a Challenger with a special Horizon paint job. Doesn't seem very special to me, but I've never been a fan of the new Challengers.

      I preordered from GameStop though, not Amazon. Was the Challenger exclusive to Amazon preorders?

      No, like I said you will get yours on a card when you pick up your Forza Horizon game. Most likely.

      I also pre-ordered from GS.

      Best of luck with that. I pre-ordered the LCE of FM4 at BB and never got ANYTHING.

      It's not just a challenger paint. It's the new 392. Still not impressive for a limited car but it is different than the two we already have.

      I preordered through Gamestop/EB in Canada and in hindsight I wish I'd waited until Best Buy threw up their preorder cars. GS/EB didn't give me a DLC code for the FM4 392 and their DLC car for Horizon is the SLS AMG. Best Buy by comparison gives you the 458 Italia AND Golf R.

      I also pred-ordered my FM4 LCE from Bestbuy (Canada). I didn't get any code when the game shipped to my home. So I called their customer support and told the story about "pre-order bonus car" from different retailers. Of course the agent didn't know what i was talking about so she escalate this to her supervisor. I talked to the supervisor and he seems to know what happen. He said he will look into this problem and contact me within 2(or 5 i don't remember) business days. And after 2 days i got this email from him...

      Hi,

      Loving the car list so far.









      So what are we sacrificing to get all this extra eye candy? Graphically the game looks fantastic. T10 didn't want to do night racing in Forza 4 so they could maintain their 60fps and no tearing. Will Horizon run at 30 fps?

      Today's announcements:





      No Porsche yet. I guess it might have been just a Forza 4 deal with EA. Still a bunch of cars to go though...

      In one of the interviews the guy said Porsche will not be included to start but would not say that it would be excluded forever.
      So I'm thinking big expansion pack. Again
