    I've been wanting to try Forza for ages. Good to know it's coming to Steam.

    Everything is bad on ms but now that is on steam could change that. I also never tried the game.

    There is nothing worse than MS store installations.

    If you have the game on the M$ store and want to get it be advised you will lose your progress...

    https://support.forzamotorsport.net...0002444821-Forza-Horizon-4-is-headed-to-Steam

    Q: If I already play Forza Horizon 4 on another platform, will my game progress carry over to Steam if I buy the Steam version?

    A: Your save file on Steam is completely unique and separate from any pre-existing save file that’s associated with your Xbox Live gamertag, due to technical limitations. However, there are a few exceptions:

    • Leaderboards are one per gamertag. May the best profile win.
    • Clubs are one per gamertag. Join once, play anywhere.

    Sadly, Steam installs of games from the MS Store are worse than just using the MS Store, this is atleast the experience with PSO2 and FS2020 so far.

    What a fun trailer, I miss the Forza series; they are both such great racing games!

    Retail UWP version of FH4 had a quite agressive protective/anticheat system, which disliked third party hooks in any form. Fingers crossed on having it removed from Steam version, probably this one will be finally compatible with third party overlays?

    This is probably the only game from M$ store that i've really wanted to try/play but refused to install it though the ms store.

    Good news for all as this is one of those games that should never be limited by platform, so the more that get to enjoy it the better, and even though i have it on the XBX and MS store i will get it on Steam at some point just because it's Forza and you can never have too much Forza. ha

    Btw is this the one with the Lego DLC?

    Nevermind you do get the DLC but not sure if you'll need to pay extra for them.

    Problem with the installation? Personally, I did not encounter any kind of problem.But if you ask me about the game even though I love racing games,apart from the very beautiful graphics, the rest of the game is a bit tedious I would say.

    cant wait to see if it runs faster on steam, kinda like that quantum break game

    I've been playing it for over a year now and half the times I launch it it just cant lock to 120fps for no apparent reason, its often a jumpy 118-120fps, then next day its at 120 all day long, ms store either works like a dream or makes your head overheat, games launch and close like its the 90's in a good way, and so far they perform very well(forza, gears, halo, crackdown)

    I wish they allowed us to turn off crossplay though, playing with console users means waiting a solid couple minutes for every race

    iirc it's locked to 60 fps max isn't it? I could be wrong.
