The Forza Horizon 3 E3 segment brings you the world premier trailer and an onstage demo featuring 4-player co-op and Windows 10 cross play. In Forza Horizon 3, you’re in charge of the Horizon Festival. Customize everything, hire and fire your friends, and explore Australia in over 350 of the world’s greatest cars, including the debut of the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario.

Gotta love it, exploration, crazy off-road races & good tunes. Oh and then there's also that huge roster of cars, buggies, sand rails, and what not to collect in your garage. I'm excited and Forza Horizon 3 is another cross play game so you'll be able to go with Xbox One or WIndows 10 driving down the outback of Australia.

I don't care about racing games that aren't Burnout, but god damn this game looks great. May be the first non-Burnout driving game i've bought since GT2 on PS1.

Does anyone know in FH3 if they will require you to drive to an event every time like in FH2? One of my most annoying parts of FH2 is finishing an event series then if I wanted to do another one, drive however long it was to get to the new event series. I don't mind the first time but every time after that it got annoying because I could not fast travel.

Yeah I don't know, def agree with you on that one. That might have been with the FH2 game, it was that it's not the destination it's the adventure there they kept focusing on.

Demo was fun. Going to grab this digitally for the Play Anywhere, pretty excited about that. What a great series this is.

 

It's been a while since I played FH2 but I thought you could fast travel once you unlocked a location and it just cost you some cash to do so. Could be wrong.

Does anybody know how the Xbox one disc versions of this game , get you the windows 10 version ? All the marketing on play anywhere just mentions digital purchases . Is there a code ?

Play Anywhere title's cross play feature is only digital as it's tied to your microsoft account upon purchase.

Not really a big fan of racing game but Horizon is so good. Might have to get my own copy soon.

So, does anybody else get annoyed that there is no map on the GPS screen when you go into the cockpit view? Besides that, I love the game immensely and I'm not a real racing fan.

Ah, pretty sure there is... it even zooms out the faster you go.

Or am I miss understanding you?

Minus some technical hickups I'm enjoying the hell out of the game.

When in cockpit view of the car, in the middle of dash there always seems to be a screen. Mine are always blank. Would have been perfect to add a GPS map there. Not talking about the regular gps hud.

Trying to get that sell 5 car achievement in the auction house.

Anyone have any tips? I bought a few 25k cars and been trying to sell them for the lowest price possible but no luck.

Well, the easy thing to do is find someone willing to buy and sell the same cheap car back and forth...  If both are online at the same time it would go by real quick I imagine.

Is it just me or does anyone else's wheel spins suck? I think in 20 levels I got one car and got the lowest amount possible about 6-7 times.

It's pretty fun to drive through traffic with...

Does anyone know of any good tutorials for drifting? I am terrible at it and I need to get better to do the drift zones.

Balance out the throttle and the brake while almost sideways. The easiest way to go about it is like a rally racer and hit the e-brake and turn the steering wheel the opposite direction of the corner. Just practice in the open world whenever and you'll get the hang of it.

Is it me or is the game really hard to control?  I've played through GT4, GT5, Burnout Paradise, Need for Speed, etc. with no problems, but I am having a really hard time controlling the car in this game.  I spin out and fish tail constantly.  Are there any driving assists to turn on anywhere?  I'm playing on the PC with a 360 controller if that makes a difference.

 

The game does look amazing though, even on my 3 year old PC with a bit above the minimum requirements.  The low video memory pop up every 30 seconds is annoying as hell though.

I'm no way expert at it but to get 3 stars in drift zones you will want the most speed and angle you can get. The rest will just be maintaining the drift and chaining them together.

I find it quite difficult to scandinavian flick or simply downshift to initiate a drift in this game. 99% of the time I have to hit the ebrake then maintain it from there. I play with all assist off at steering in normal as I'm using a controller. Its actually quite easy to drift in this game compare to driving sims like assetto.

If you can describe the issue youre having it might be easier for us to give you advices. Are you spinning out? Spring back to other direction too fast? Not able to hold the drift for the entire corner?

The problem I have is when I drift controlling it so I don't spin out. I am either too holding back so I don't get a good drift/angle or I overextend and spin out.

 

I have also become addicted to the wheelspins since I bought that perk where I can buy them. I don't waste all my money but I put a lot down so far on them. It's a risk but I want that Ford GT.

Rwd makes it easier than awd. I learned I was spinning a lot because of awd.

I have a buddy who is crazy good with drifting. He's been helping me out.

AWD is easier, for the most part...  You do want to turn off traction and stability control in your difficulty options...  For some of the shorter trials you might want to do an online adventure in solo mode.  (It will get rid of the drivatars but you won't be able to rewind.)
