Today we’re unveiling the launch trailer for this year’s biggest racing game, Forza Horizon. This incredible trailer spotlights everything we love (and we hope you will love) about Forza Horizon: epic diversity, incredible vistas, hundreds of miles to explore, adventure around every corner, a thrilling line up of the world’s most incredible cars, and of course, the centerpiece of it all, the Horizon Festival. Take a look:


Now, I’m sure you stayed until the very end, right? Because if you didn’t, you missed the announcement at the end: the Forza Horizon Xbox LIVE demo will be available for download on October 9! The “Forza Horizon” demo is designed to give you a taste of the automotive action that will be the throughout the game. In the demo, players will get a chance to experience the Colorado of “Forza Horizon”, driving a number of different cars across a variety of different event types – from Horizon Festival events taking place in the dusty, dirt roads of the upper hills – to a climactic street race that find players winding up, around, and over the Finley Dam. Several of the events in the “Forza Horizon” demo will automatically become Rivals Mode events after completing them, allowing “Forza” fans to compete against one another to set the fastest time. In addition, players will be able to drive and explore a section of the overall game map to get a feel for the kinds of open-road adventure that lays ahead in the full version of “Forza Horizon.”


Players who download and play the “Forza Horizon” demo and then purchase and play the full game online will receive a specially designed 2013 SRT Viper GTS, celebrating Forza Horizon’s “gone-gold” status. This rare liveried car will only be available to those who download the demo and purchase and play the game online. The “Forza Horizon” Xbox LIVE demo requires an Xbox LIVE account. To receive your free Viper you will need Gold member exclusive access.
