Speaking of the soundtrack, there's good news regarding the stations. It will feature Bass Arena, Pulse, a "heavy rock" station, a hip-hop station, and a punk station as well as Hospital Records, Vagrant, and Epitaph as well as a Future Classic station. Also, you can stream your own music in game as well.

I should get my pre order ready because this is exactly what I wanted. I've been wanting metal and rap since the beginning.

Really looking forward to the settings in Australia and cross platform play.  I wonder if FH1 will be backward compatible before FH3 launches in September.

Licence plates... FINALLY!
Seems like a small detail, but when the cars are as detailed as they are...

Hopefully now that we're set in Australia, we get a proper Commodore and Falcon..

So psyched I can buy this for XB1 and play it on my PC at no extra cost.  This game is going to look amazing on PC.

It looks damn beautiful. Australia looks pretty great from what we've seen, having sand dunes, deserts, jungles and beaches all in one is awesome as well. It seems they have taken cues from The Crew or even TDU.

 

350 cars at launch is great, I'm guessing some will be locked to the pre-order and VIP packs but I don't really mind. What I'm also excited for is the soundtrack, I'm hoping we get artists like Tame Impala, The Maccabees, and just maybe AC/DC.

 

Now I'm definitely gonna have to try and get an XB1.

 

EDIT: Love the custom soundtrack idea, definitely gonna have to add said Aussie artists and bands.

I think there is customization in the game for your characters, no one has said anything about it so here. Remember this is speculation, although we don't have enough credit about character customization. But definitely sure that there are indeed male or female characters. 

 

EDIT: Also some leaked gameplay woo woo!

Good find Raul. That map looks huge! As for the the customizable characters, that'd be pretty cool if it's a feature. I didn't like being that generic pleb in FH2.. kind of made screenshots weird. :p

 

I'm pretty excited for the soundtrack tbh, I feel like Horizon games are great for discovering music. Streaming our own music is going to be awesome too. I wonder if we need to use Groove for that or something..?

  12. Kiewa Valley - A Highway in Victoria Australia

Yes.

 

Groove Radio lets players stream their own personal music collection from the cloud – just add your music to your OneDrive, create a playlist in Groove Music on Windows 10, and Horizon 3 will stream that playlist into your game on Xbox One and Windows 10.

 

@Raul

The map is incredibly huge, it's going to be a blast driving from one end to another while detouring on forests and coastal roads. Playground picked an awesome location this time around. Oh, and the Auction House is finally back! :D

That's good. I already have 1200 songs on my OneDrive just in case Groove was gonna be used. Glad to see that it wasn't a waste of time.

I'm so pumped. Other than Mount Panorama being featured the last few years it's nice to get a racing game in my own back yard. I always hoped Horizon would come to Australia. I got my wish.:)

This game is everything I've ever wanted from a game. Australia, cars, free roam, interior view, rain, body kits, semi-realistic physics, PC. RIP every other game. This is an instant pre-order and basically the only game I'll be playing until Horizon 4.

I'm a bit worried about the rap station because the one song shown for it sounds like a rejected Macklemore song.

 

 

I'm hoping for Logic, MGK, Run the Jewels, Atmosphere, Doomtree, Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Tech N9ne, maybe some old school Wu Tang Clan and Run-DMC etc. as well as some underground hip-hop for music discovery. I certainly don't think of this when I think of hip-hop music. I seriously hope this isn't representative of the whole station.

I'm hyped. Officially. Trying to decide where to preorder from. Gamestop has the most preorders (2 cars), but I can get a better deal on Amazon due to Prime. But MS store has the Shelby GT350R, and will be pretty rare and valuable. But if I get it digitally, I get a nice Mercedes and my friend can play too (gameshare).

Maybe further down we could see some type of smaller city like St. Kilda (sorry I'm not Australian, but I'm just giving a more realistic point of view). Melbourne would be way too big for the Horizon series. Sydney is least likely, however maybe the opera house could be there somehow with a smaller Sydney district (Queensland so far seems way too small). Who knows, the map isn't fully revealed yet. Also, Brisbane is way far up, not even gonna think it can even be in the game. 

 

I want to see Darwin in the game as a city in the Northern Territory, but you know it ain't gonna happen when you realize they pretty much cut out the whole Northern Territory for more open rallying.

I haven't been this hyped for a racing game (or just a game in general) in a long time. This will be the game that all the other open world racers wished they could be. September 27th can't come soon enough.

Just thinking of some possible barn finds I think it would be a travesty if they didn't include some classic Aussie muscle like the GTS Monaro, GTHO Falcon, Valiant etc for us to find and restore. We have a few of those locked up around farms here in the Hunter Valley

a classic Falcon would be awesome. Also, being in Australia, this is a golden opportunity to add the Maloo for once.

 GTHO Falcon

This x100. We have one of those in our family and it would be great to own one in a game, especially if I could recreate it down to license plate.

 

So is it gonna feature Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane or just Gold Coast?

Maybe further down we could see some type of smaller city like St. Kilda (sorry I'm not Australian, but I'm just giving a more realistic point of view). Melbourne would be way too big for the Horizon series. 

A map addon containing the place I grew up would be pretty cool, especially if you could drive on the Albert Park track!

The last time I've been this hyped was TDU2. (Couldn't be hyped about TDU1 since I learned of it shortly after release)

 

Sure, this is not the "decently-accurate, 1/1 landscape"-type open world that I've missed so dearly, but I surely hope I can find some of my long-lost passion from FH3.

I understand they have to condense the map, but couldn't they atleast make it more believable than Yarra Valley being above Byron Bay?

I mean they've pretty much taken parts of Victoria and sandwiched them between QLD and NSW. Topographically it makes no sense what so ever.

What do you guys think of this?

 

https://www.reddit.c...ed_a_new_forza/

 

There's going to be a new Forza franchise. What do you guys think it'll be? If I had to guess, it'll focus on street racing similar to NFS. We have simulation racing with Motorsport, arcade with Horizon, so this seems to be next step. It would be kind of sad if Forza could make a better NFS than NFS has been able to lately.

I love NFS, old or new. But I'm not too sure if I'm keen on Turn 10 breaking into that part of the market, which EA has dominated for so many years. T10 already have the simulation part of the market. Anyway, wasn't the point of Horizon to be street racing before Horizon Rally came out for the first Horizon?

Well to be fair, Horizon doesn't really focus on illegal street races and that culture because it takes place in a racing/music festival that's fully legal. Granted, something like that would be impossible in real life, but you know what I mean. I can see Forza cracking into that market, especially since NFS has been in fatigue for quite a while.

Right, I understand where you're getting at. If they were going with the illegal street racing idea, they should provide a Midnight Club-like experience, then that would fill that gap that R* use to own. I'm just not keen to see NFS (which has been around since the 90s) kicked off its place on the market after such a long time. However, having said that, NFS 2015 is the step in the right direction for the future of the franchise.
