Forza Horizon: Bogan Edition

Hype levels at critical.

Who's in? Looking forward to cross platform play in a big way. Multiplayer on Xbone just went from barren wasteland to epic.

I know the map is all kinds of wtf (the 12 Apostles are between Surfers and Byron) but holy shit.
Skip to the 24 minute mark in this vid. I know it's heavily stylised and condensed but anyone who has driven into Surfers from the west will experience serious deja vu.
I had several "turn there to go to my mum's/dad's/mate's place" moments. Very cool.
Can't wait to see Byron and attempt shit like this on roads I'm familiar with in a Sandman/Maloo/Phase 3...

Gold, in honour of that gag my custom plates will say YOMAMA.

Byron is in, just not demoed yet. Game has gone gold, demo on the 12th, VIP access around the 23rd, release on 27th.
If you buy digitally you automatically own it on Xbone and Win10, with saves and servers shared between both. I bought my Xbone purely to play Forza (Motorsport 6 and Horizon 2) and I'm still playing them, the hype is real.

Current Australian cars:

Ford
1971 XY Falcon GTHO Phase III
1973 XB Falcon GT
2014 FPV Limited Edition Pursuit Ute
2015 Falcon XR8
2015 Falcon GT F 351
2016 #55 Supercheap racing Falcon FG X

Holden
1951 FX Ute
1973 HQ Monaro GTS 350
1974 HQ Sandman Panel Van
1977 Torana A9X
1988 VL Commodore Group A SV
2014 HSV GTS
2016 #22 Sharkbite racing HRT VF Commodore
2016 Maloo GTS Ute

lol, got marketing budget?

Nup. Buy either, own both.

*edit - That's a bit vague on it actually. At the very least you could create an XBL account and buy the Xbone version (with free PC version) if you wanted both.
You can always just buy on PC and play on PC regardless.

Fuck microsoft for actually figuring out how to make people buy win10 or an xbox. I want neither of those things but am very interested in this game, and a couple others.

Me either and the handful of win10 exclusive games aren't really enough to put up with it's cancer just yet, even if a good chunk of it can be chemo'd with classic shell, shutup10.

"Just yet" is the key phrase there, moving forward this Play Anywhere business has game-changer written all over it.
Console plebs get more opponents.
Master race neckbeards get to prove their superiority.
Meanwhile, us distinguished multiplatform gentlemen get all of the above, two copies for the price of one, and more.

It all rests on implementation and library, the concept is solid as fuck.

Nothing yet but their post-release game is usually strong and vive + rift devkits have been seen at their studio. We can only hope (and pester).
Horizon and Motorsport alternate years, if I was a betting man I'd say vr's a lock for FM7 next year with support patched into Horizon after they've milked it.
Is MS working on their own vr unit?

I very much doubt it, I haven't heard a single peep of a rumour about it and I think their strategy is to push AR, not VR, with their HoloLens

I've only given Hololens a cursory glance but I got the impression vr could be firmwared in down the track. Or maybe Hololens 1.5.


p.s. Testing a work in progress decal in Horizon 2 to transfer over when finished.

Microsoft has to do more than this to make up for the last decade of ignoring, and actively sabotaging pc gaming with games for windows live.
They are trying tho, in the microsoft fashion, herding normal applications inside a useless uwp wrapper, breaking support for everything yet again. Them coming back this late in the game has me wary rather than excited. Id much prefer vulkan succeed even though i know its probably hopeless.

I bought this cause I saw you could drive a Ford Rapter fuck yeah

Doing some reading whilst it downloads and the Kiewa Valley is in there which is where I live but from the youtubes the roads look like the boring ones between Mt Beauty and Albury. The iconic roads are loops up to Hotham/Falls Creek/Omeo which is all twisty mountainous terrain, seems a wasted opportunity not including that.
