Default Forza Horizon 3 - 06-13-2016, 17:56 | posts: 26,122 | Location: Netherlands

During Microsoft’s E3 press conference, the publisher officially announced the next chapter of the Forza Horizon franchise, that like its predecessors will be simply called Forza Horizon 3.

With the announcement came the first trailer, that looked extremely sleek, as traditional for the series.

The game will launch on September 27th, and will be set in Australia. It will also include a co-op mode with up to four players, which is a first in the franchise.

It includes the largest car roster ever seen in Forza Horizon, and comes with the largest open world ever created in the franchise.

So I wonder, because I have seen it posted, all Xbox One exclusive games are going to Win 10 store with DX12.

Wonder if we get this game.
The offroad trucks have my interest peak for the first time at a Forza game.

Xbox One is a pile of poo IMHO.

Really do love MS is showing love to PC community finally.

my worries are this:

price. dont be stupid MS and this should fly.
optimisation, spend some time giving us PC folk some decent code and we will be happy.
also, sell codes or boxed codes even via other retailers, dont limit us to just the darn MS store.

^^You can bet your bottom dollar this will be W10 store only purchase, i doubt they will allow you to buy said codes cheaper via a third party sellers, especially with the fact that the codes will be cross buy between two systems.

But, you can hope.

Graphics look pretty meh in that trailer. That being said, Forza Horizon coming to PC is a good thing. One of those games I was considering buying a XBONE for. No more.

Hahahahahaaahahaha

Microsoft showing pc love? microsoft needs people using the store needs people using windows 10 to push this stuff. Xbone is a flop, windows 10 adoption is decent but behind what they wanted, and the number of people using the actual store is a fraction of the win 10 install base.

ATM ms has no hand in the game industry why develop exclusively for windows store if hardly anyone is using it? Why lock your game to the console that is well trailing the ps4?

MS is pushing all these wiz games to get more people into the win 10 store period they are offering these deals to get people to buy in.

They are bundling "security updates" as stealth telemetry and win 10 nag notices, putting in pop ups that if you are not at your win 7/8 will auto dl and install win 10 less you tell it to **** off.

Every time you get a game on win store they can say to their shareholder we got this many games installed on win 10. No matter if you got it "free" or bought it.

And while i am ranting. Once they get big enough install base of people buying games on the win 10 store then they can goto devs and say give us your game for our store and close out steam, gog etc.

Can't wait!

Looks great. Good one for you win10 folks, but, worries me there's no mention of PC at the end of the trailer.

Play Now/Cross Buy, whatever you want to call it, is a fantastic idea - buy the Xbox One version and get the PC version for free - wonderful. However, this offer only applies to digital purchases which, as we all know, are more expensive than buying the disc version from your favourite e-tailer. And that is really the only thing that annoys me because I prefer to own my console games on disc to give me that sense of ownership and, more importantly, allowing me to quickly install/reinstall the game if I need to rather than downloading 30+ GB of data over a slower non-fibre optic broadband connection.

Recommended PC Specs

Finally, we know lots of players are preparing to enjoy Forza Horizon 3 on Windows 10 PCs and today we’re revealing the recommended specs. Naturally Forza Horizon 3 will require DirectX 12-enabled machines and Windows 10. Here’s the details for the recommended specs:

Recommended
CPU i7 3820 @ 3.6GHz
GPU NVIDIA GTX 970 or NVIDIA GTX 1060
AMD R9 290X or AMD RX 480
VRAM 4GB
RAM 12GB
Hard Drive Type HDD
Available Space 55 GB
Resolution 1920 x 1080
Windows Version Windows Anniversary Edition 64-bit 14393.101

Forza Horizon 3 players will have a tremendous amount of adjustment options when playing on Windows 10. From basic options like full screen, vertical sync, and resolution, to more advanced adjustments like quality settings for motion blur, mirrors, reflection, static and dynamic geometry, we’re giving Windows 10 players the power to play the way they want. Whether playing on the recommended specs or pushing the hardware limits to deliver the ultimate 4K racing experience, Forza Horizon 3 players will have lots of options for making the most of their experience.

True.. all this forza is the marketing for people to convert to windows 10! I mean cmon, they were FORCING windows 10 FOR FREE.. down our throats and still they realised most people were not sheep, so they do a carrot dangle with this forza game.

I do admit this game looks impressive but there is no reason to lockdown it on dx12.. :|

That's just how things work ever since Valve locked their games to Steam years ago, no developer/publisher does anything out the kindness of their own heart.

The game looks impressive, and first party MS games seem to be the only ones who seem to be able to do DX12 well.
DX12 only is probably for the best as no point complicating things by introducing another api like DX11 and multiple other operating systems that need support.

Just a pity these games are priced way beyond what I would pay.
I don't know if this has been answered before, but would it be possible to buy this new on the X1, register it to my account and then sell right away at a high price.
