We’ve had a more in-depth look at exactly how seasons change everything in Forza Horizon 4

While we did getthe the chance to have an early hands on back at E3 in June, last week we had a much closer look at the new arcade racer from Playground Games.

We were given the chance to drive around the open world of beautiful, historic Britain as we pleased – in either a WRX or a Focus RS. As you can see in the short video below, we had immeasurable fun in both.

We got to play through a few races in both Summer and Autumn, and it’s clear just how much the seasons and weather impact the tracks; rain will make courses more wet at the race goes on, for example. It’s important to pick the right car for the job, too.

Our gameplay video below is but a glimpse of what you’ll be able to get up to in Forza Horizon 4 when it launches in October. Keep an eye out in next month’s issue for a more in-depth preview and our interview with Playground’s art director, Ben Penrose.
