Can't wait to cruise in that Fiesta.

I know it sounds crazy, but I can't wait too. I've always loved the Fiesta ST, especially the hatchback version. That A45 AMG is going to be an absolute thrill too. I'm a little confused why they put the regular SLS in the game. Have they completely forgotten about the SLS Black Series? The S4 confuses me too, although I don't really mind as I love that car. I'm really hoping for an RS5 though.

 

Lastly, it would be really cool if they'd add the 8C convertible again. I was having some fun with that today in the original Horizon but it would suit French Riviera roads even better.

You said you were there a few years ago. Well this was a few months ago.

 

As I said, over-hyped. As I said, lucky with spotting. What you have said doesn't happen 24/7 there. 

 

Well aware of that. :^: But common sense would tell you that if there ever was to be a large car event, such as Horizon 2, going on nearby, the city will obviously be popular with expensive traffic. Just saying...

 

 

And common sense would tell you that they don't happen all the time.

I actually like how the fwd cars drive in Horizon, they're fun! Although pretty much any fwd car that's over 350-400hp/tq in horizon seems to be a complete no-no in the corners, doesn't stop me from driving them though.

 

I remember when I bought Forza 4 & 3 a few weeks after I purchased Horizon, I was surprised on how many nice cars (imo at least) that are not in Horizon, and a lot of the tuning features. We'll see soon enough I guess at E3?

 

Looking forward to having some cruises in the rain.

edit: Ok I just read and watched a video in the IGN article posted on page 1 on this thread, which I somehow managed to not see.

The game will have dedicated servers, as in TDU style, no lobbies, see other players / friends driving around as soon as you get in the game, instantly able to join with them on a cruise from the map ? Map three times the size of FH1? Unless I read it wrong, that's it right there, true successor of TDU1. I don't need any more details.

Who the hell was talking about that though? My point is this: there is an event going on near Monaco in the game. So obviously there would be loads of expensive cars during the time of the event. Get it?

Dedicated servers... good

 

TDU style servers... Never try to make something server related look good and then mention TDU servers, they were terrible for playing with friends.

 

 

Anyway, lets hope the map is three (or more) times bigger than FH1 and lets hope that they don't f*ck the servers up with this supposed TDU style server stuff.

Just though I'd add this:

 

The TDU/TDU2 free roam setup was basically flawed from the beginning. You never really got into a free roam lobby with anyone else unless you were in major spots such as the airports, cities, casino entrances, ect... and you couldn't really stay in a session with people for more than 10 mins unless you were outside the major player zones or in the casino.

No hands on of Forza Horizon 2? :bored:

In the first scene of actual gameplay, is anyone else noticing how small the car looks compared to the road. Why are the roads so big? That isn't even right:

italy.jpg?itok=_HBiBYmk

It should look like that. I know it seems nitpicky but it just looks daft.

This was just the MS keynote, obviously it couldn't be all about Forza. I expect more to be released by T10 throughout the week.

They probably made it bigger otherwise it'd be almost impossible to race on, especially online. I thought it looked pretty damn sweet, but will have to wait and see more gameplay. 

 

Also free Nurburgring DLC for FM5 out now!

Convenience for the players?

Early build?

to make the scene easier?

Well it doesn't bug me too much but I just love how narrow Southern Europe roads are in real life. Oh well. Everything else looked sweet and the cars looked just as polished as they were in Forza Motorsport 5. I wish they'd show off some other cars though, the super cars get old after a while.

This game is beautiful and the physics look a little dumbed down, down to Horizon 1's level, which is fine with me. HD videos are on IGN's channel:

Man think of the photo opportunities in this game! :O

The detail they've poured into this game is astonishing. Free-roaming is going to be an absolute joy.

I noticed that too... has to be scaled surely, can't be that big, unless there's another Amalfi.

The Amalfi coast is beautiful, have stayed and driven down there myself. Quite a bit of road there is really really narrow, so I imagine they have widened those roads as well. Here's hoping they've also included tuscany.

I'm hoping the countryside doesn't feel as dull as TDU2.

LaFerrari should be on that list, I noticed it in one (or two) of the IGN gameplay videos. Looking good so far!  :^:

I don't remember seeing a SEAT but there is the bum of a Renault Megane in there. Also, it's probably a Ford GT.

It might have been a Renault, it would help if the video was more than 360p :/

That's odd.. I have all options.

You can just google up the gameplay video and other sites will have it in HD for ya I'm sure.

 

On topic though, those engine sounds were pretty nice, definitely better than Forza 5 it seems. Though I'm still not 100% sold on this.. the first Horizon was a relief from everyday track racing but at the same time, it got pretty boring like any Forza game does after awhile, atleast for me. But this seems to be more promising than it's cousin. I'll wait till price drops then I'll snag it up.
