This game was released on October 02, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Forza Horizon 4 is a racing game developed by Playground Games and published by Microsoft exclusively for Xbox One and Windows 10. As it is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, a digital purchase for Xbox entitles one to a free Windows 10 copy (not available with boxed versions of FH4).

The game is set in Great Britain, and allows the player to drive more than 450 cars across its scenic landscapes. One of its most touted new features is dynamic seasons, which challenge the drivers with ever-changing dry, wet, muddy, snowy, and icy road conditions.

In contrast to the Forza Motorsport series, Forza Horizon tends to have a more relaxed, arcade-like atmosphere, and the latest installment is no exception to the rule. Much like its predecessor, it boasts an open world, this time shared between players, albeit still playable offline. There are also casual and ranked team multiplayer modes.
