For the first time in the long history of the Forza franchise, Steam gamers can look forward to the release of Forza Horizon 4 in a months time.
Wishlist Forza Horizon 4 on Steam and be notified when the game is available for purchase on March 9.
Steam players will soon join millions of monthly Forza Horizon 4 players as they race across historic Britain in the open-world automotive adventure and join a creative community that celebrates automotive culture.
With cross-play, Steam players drive alongside their friends and rivals who are racing on Xbox devices, Windows 10 PCs, and cloud gaming with Game Pass Ultimate on Android mobile devices.
It’s been on sale a number of times since its release. It’s also been included in all the Game Pass subscriptions on either Console or PC since its launch. So I image the majority of players who wanted the game already have it in some form.
That said, other recentish Xbox Game Studios titles like Sea of Thieves and Gears 5 have gone onto Steam at significantly lower prices than they are on the XB Store. I think the Steam versions are not Play Anywhere enabled (so you can’t buy the Steam edition and use it on your Xbox console like you can if you buy it from the Xbox Store). AIso think there’s some measure of regional pricing at play on the Steam storefront, which benefits us a lot as well. They’re both currently selling on Steam for R219, which is amongst the lowest prices for the game globally.
Awesome, definitely believe it will be cheaper on steam, and even though I have completed it via gamepass would not mind playing it again, especially if the dlc is going on there and is also going to be cheaper.
You’ll enjoy it with a wheel, but it’s a game more focused on gamepad play. There is more than enough settings to curate the experience you want from it whether or not you use a wheel or a controller. I played it extensively with a controller as I found it difficult to drift with the wheel
I found it more enjoyable with a gamepad but I’ve seen a fair few videos of people using a wheel, even for drifting. It probably just takes a bit of fiddling to dial in the right settings and rotation values etc.
Yip, what the guys said here: gamepad for Horizon is the better way to play.
Saying that, Horizon 4 is the only game my 8 year old girl likes to play on my wheel. She always stays on the left and only overtakes when she can see ahead, and there is a broken line. She drives better than me!
I literally, bought an Xbox 360, back in the day, because of FM3, and had a lot of fun drifting FM4 on a gamepad. So… I’m keen to send it, like the kiddies do in Forza Horizon series. Not everything has to be about realism. I want to ogle the beautiful cars from 3rd person camera view, and lam on a single seater couch in the game room, while I yeet it into a gap, going 3 cars wide into an intersection, and then scream jou @#$% ma weer when someone mentions mother’s bits, in chat.
