You’ve read the previews and reviews. You’ve watched all the other trailers. And you’ve probably played the demo, too. But if you still need convincing, here’s the Forza Horizon 3 launch trailer.
Forza Horizon 3 arrives in a week from now – or in three days if you have pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition – and to start the final countdown Turn 10 Studios and Playground Games have released a new official launch trailer.
The trailer shows off some of the game’s sumptuous Australian locations, including Surfer’s Paradise, plus a few more of its beautifully rendered vehicles, of which there over 350.
Alongside the usual range of supercars and muscle cars Forza Horizon 3 also features some regionally appropriate rides such as utes and buggies, and even a Reliant Supervan. Each vehicle has a full cockpit view with working lights and wipers. There’s no word yet on ashtrays, coffee cup holders or inflatable sex dolls.
Early reviews for the game are positive with IGN calling it a “masterclass in open-world racing” and The Verge’s cautious critique suggesting that “Forza Horizon 3 isn’t one of the best open-world racing games; it’s one of the best open-world games.”
