    Nice, I always wanted to play the Forza Series again (last I played was on the 360 years ago). I really didn't want anything to do with MS Online store for my PC, so this is excellent news.

    Loved this when I had the game pass that came free with my 3900X, buttery smooth, great looking and good car handling. A possible purchase when it appears.

    Oh yeah, this is the Forza game set in the UK. Now I really want to play it. I wanted to when it came out, but didn't have an XBone.

    Re: Forza Horizon 4 first in franchise to hit Steam on PC

    Its been on the Microsoft store on Windows for a long time now. Its a lot of fun, good content, regularly updated.

    As I said get the ultimate edition if you can, it does seem to cost a bit but you get access to everything including the expansion packs.

    Fortune Island was good, Lego was a bit meh but nice for the novelty value.

    The Lego expansion still has the only racetracks in the game though - I found I go back to it more often than I do fortune island.

    Great game, lots of different events/challenges to do, the weather/seasons is a nice distraction, not the most realistic but it's just plain fun (if you like cars). My favourite driving game from the last few years probably. Hopefully the multiplayer gets a little boost in population thanks to cross play.

    I struggled with Lego and haven't really played it that much, might go revisit it as haven't played Forza for a while

    Re: Forza Horizon 4 first in franchise to hit Steam on PC

    Got to love the forza horizon series. I've been playing them ever since I got game pass. I personally preferred 3 with the hotwheels expansion but I don't think that ever got a PC release? I'm currently playing FH4 on the series X and it is a very pretty game at 4k.

    Yep, it most certainly did Hotwheels was nuts - that was a novelty for me - blizzard island was ace though - snow! Now we get snow every four weeks so it's not such the surprise, but after blasting around aussie beaches it was a nice change.

    I got The Crew 2 recently. It has revived my excitement for more open world racing games again. Last racing game I played was Grid (2019)... and it's a different feeling doing open world racing. Although I do go to the menu in The Crew 2 to find races sometimes.

    Re: Forza Horizon 4 first in franchise to hit Steam on PC

    Not sure if its still on sale but Forza 4 Ultimate edition is half price on the Microsoft Store. I have the Microsoft store version and not sure what the big deal is, its installs and runs.

    Edit : Its not :/
