5 Reasons We’re Excited for Forza Horizon 2

The Forza series is the pinnacle of racing – combining fast-paced and action-heavy driving with gorgeous cars and scenery. All that gets even better in Forza Horizon 2. There’s only one short day left before its release, and if you’re not excited yet, here are a few reasons why you should be.

So Much More Road to Drive On

Forza Horizon 2’s amazing southern European setting is bigger, prettier, and more fun than ever. From cities, to cliff-side roads, to rural Italian farmland, there’s no end to the variety in Forza Horizon 2’s environments.

Or, Hey, Forget the Road!

Tired of sticking to the pavement? Take a sharp left and crash through a fence, barrel through a field, and come smashing out of another fence in front of your opponent. You’re not limited to the tracks in Forza Horizon 2, and you’ll find plenty of shortcuts and secrets to explore in the world.

There Are More Cars Than You Can Ever Possibly Drive in Real-life

Over 200 of the hottest, fastest, shiniest cars make Forza Horizon 2 the most robust racing game of this console generation. Gorgeous luxury cars like the Pagani Huayra and the Lamborghini Huracán face off against the Local Motors Rally Fighter and the 2015 Ford Mustang GT, and many more.

School Your Friends, Instantly

It’s super easy to race against your friends in Forza Horizon 2, and you can instantly switch between online and offline play, with no lobbies and no waiting. You can form clubs with up to 1,000 racers, and compete against your friends’ Drivatars when you’re playing solo. In Forza Horizon 2, you always know how much better (or worse) you are than your buddies.

Already a Forza Fan? Have a Free Awesome Car!

The Forza Rewards system in Forza Horizon 2 rewards those players who have racked up points in previous Forza titles. The first time you load up the game, you’ll be presented with an awesome vehicle, depending on your current Forza ranking. Unlocking cars before you even play the game? Man, they’re making this too easy!

Forza Horizon 2 races onto your Xbox One on Sept. 30, so get your racing gloves and your driving goggles and we’ll see you on the road.
