    I came on here to start a thread and you my friend beat me to it.

    IGN has done a dev interview and it seems we will be able to purchase property and businesses. Hopefully not at London prices...

    Looks great, love the fact it's in bloody blighty and 60fps on the X is a welcome edition. Love FH but have to say I think it should be on a 3 year release cycle rather than 2.

    FH quality has never dipped so far, so Iím okay with two year cycle

    @richardiox Remember that most of the engine development and car modelling is shared with Turn 10.

    Probably the closest we'll get to Project Gotham. Unless they do Project Gotham DLC and have the whole original game in shiny 4K running at 60fps.

    The two year cycle doesn't lead to a dip in quality just an over exposure of the brand. There's been a new Forza game every year for the last 8 years. I love the franchise but it's hard to get excited.

    Other end of the spectrum is Polyphony who take 5 years per game and even then only managed half steps like GT Sport

    So this offers the definitive British driving experience?

    Iím highly anticipating driving a 2001 Vauxhall Astra through the local town with Sandstorm by Darude blasting out of my CD player.


    Either that or being stuck in traffic on the M5.....

    I'll race you in my 1989 Nissan Bluebird with Dominos pizza decor

    I liked the trailer up until pre-order ultimate edition.
    I'm happy to see another FH since 3 is the only one I've played.

    Edinburgh is the main features city. That sounds good to me.

    I can see the DLC being other cities then.

    They MUST get the Brecon Beacons in there at some point, either in the main game or DLC.

    Ridiculous potential for off-road racing and great tracks too.....used to love the Top Gear episodes when they filmed up there.

    Very much looking forward to this, hasn't been a bad FH game yet and unreasonably excited to get one set in the UK. Only slight downside is I know I'm gonna be disappointed when they don't map every inch of Wales! Kinda hoping they use Edinburgh, London and Cardiff either as hub locations or just urban areas for racing.

    If you're going to show off dynamic lighting then Manchester is a must. Drive through the city in the pouring rain. In every season!

    Sounds like there are few more Test Drive Unlimited like features in this with customisable avatars and purchasable properties. I know a lot of people don't see the point of stuff like this but I really like it.

    Oh, man. If they can add a playable Casino like TDU2 that would be amazing.

    This is looking great and wouldnít doubt is as Playground has been pretty much faultless so far (hot wheels aside).

    Couple of thoughts. Looking at the info on the Forza website it states that 60fps is an option, Iím assuming itíll be 1080/60 or 4K/30. Iíd be fine with this.

    The other thing is, how do alternative editions work with Game Pass. I generally go for deluxe/ultimate editions of Forza so is there an Ďupgradeí cost or just Game Pass version and everything else is a straight purchase?

    Game pass will give you the base version of the game, everything else will need to be purchased, although you do get a discount on any dlc you buy.

    Brilliant work.

    EDIT - for true authenticity you could get a £95 fine for entering an invisible bus lane from Manchester City Council in the second week. You'd then have a 'compo face' newspaper challenge in Forzathon

    Even though I barely scratched the surface of FH3, I found myself quite excited by that trailer (did I see Portland Bill in there at one point?!). But then I remember the shitshow that was FH3 on PC at launch, and the excitement disappears.

    I noticed an 88 Porsche 911 turbo in that presentation too. Lovely. Although did have an insanely big rear wing. Will this come out on pc? Iíd really like not to buy an Xbox if I can help it

    They have said they also want halo back on pc though. Not sure if it will apply to the new one.

    Jesus - MS really dropped the ball then, because they were shouting it from the rooftops for ages.

    Most people don't give a fuck because you have to use the abortion that is the Windows App Store. Life's too short, and it's too shit, to entertain that as an option.
