Having taken a look at a Low vs Ultra graphics comparison in Forza Horizon 4 earlier today, it's now time for our first benchmarks. The Forza Horizon 4 PC demo includes a massive chunk of the open world and a very handy and in-depth benchmark tool. For our benchmark tests, we're going to be putting Forza Horizon 4 through its paces with a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, which is just above the recommended system specs for FH4.
Playground Games unleashed the Forza Horizon 4 PC demo last night. It weighs in at a hefty 28GB but includes a full quarter of the racer's open-world. We were itching to see how Forza Horizon 4 runs on PC, as well as how good it looks this year. Benchmarks will be up shortly, but in the meantime here's what some extra graphical grunt will get you with a series of Low vs Ultra graphics presets Forza Horizon 4 comparison pics.
Surprise! Forza Horizon 4 is available to play right now on PC courtesy of a new that’s just been released.
In terms of open-world racing, no game does it quite like the Forza Horizon series these days. Playground Games is working on a different level, offering up a huge British sandbox for Forza Horizon 4, offering up to 72 players within a single instance of the world. Just as with 2016's FH3, we'll be driving on the correct side of the road. Whoop. But enough about the game, what PC specs will you need to run Forza Horizon 4? Here are the official Forza Horizon 4 system requirements.
As if there were any doubt, Playground Games studio art director, Benjamin Penrose, has confirmed the upcoming Forza Horizon 4 will be an absolute pixel-pushing powerhouse.
Playground Games has been steadily doling out information about the sublime looking Forza Horizon 4, this time taking a look at the Spring season, as well as FH4’s main urban environment - Edinburgh.
We’re still about four months out from Forza Horizon 4’s planned release, but if you want an idea for just how efficient Playground Games has got at cranking out these titles, the full preload for Forza Horizon 4 went live on the Windows Store over the weekend. It appears as if this was quite the cock-up from someone at Microsoft as it’s swiftly been brought down.
Alright guv’nor, Forza Horizon 4 has just been announced at the Xbox E3 conference. And, er, if you haven’t guessed yet, it’s coming over here to Blighty for the first time. Which is great news, because we’ll be driving on the correct side of the road again.
If any of the conference hosts needs to blow the doors off of E3 2018 this, it's Microsoft. Since last year the Seattle giant has released the most games console in the world with the Xbox One X but has utterly failed to back it up with worthwhile exclusives. A string of disappointments and cancellations means the hard work on the excellent hardware of the One X is in danger of going to waste. E3 2018 provides the perfect platform for Microsoft to announce a blockbuster line-up of Xbox exclusives.
Leaks and rumours are ten a penny in the gaming world, yet one over on ResetEra has certainly piqued our interest. The leaker in question goes by the name of Klobrille, and their rumours are given some credence due to a previous leak in which they revealed a new Age of Empires was coming, that Forza Horizon 3 would be set in Australia, State of Decay 2 would be announced and that Sea of Thieves would be an MMO-lite like Destiny. That’s a solid hit rate then, and the only thing Klobrille has got wrong so far is that Rare is working on a new Battletoads game. Or are they?
