For fans of racing video games, there have always been two camps, simulation and arcade. Simulation games like Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsports carry millions of fans, but can push away players with their higher difficulty and repetitive tracks. Arcade style racers like Need for Speed have added the complexities of city based racing coupled with traffic, all tied together with a forgiving control scheme.
The group at Turn 10 studios has decided they want to bridge the gap between these styles of games with Forza Horizon. Players still get the obsessive attention to detail and impressive driving dynamics Forza has been known for, but it has been transplanted from manicured tracks to an open and expansive world.
Forza Horizon looks to combine the best of all that racing games can provide, crammed into one beautiful and sonorous package. To see what we are so excited about, give this making of video a look. We know that you will be excited too. For anyone who owns an Xbox 360 and wants to get in on the action, Forza Horizon hits store shelves in a few short weeks on October 23, 2012.
