Forza Horizon 3 Launch Trailer Arrives, as Game Goes Live on Friday for Some

Xbox One and PC racing game Forza Horizon 3 comes out soon. Now, Microsoft has released a launch trailer for the third game in the series, showing off the Australian setting that awaits players.

On display are some of the game’s locations, which include cities and the outback, as well as the game’s numerous and varied cars. There are more than 350 in all featured in the game. Everything in the video is in-game footage, Microsoft says. The song featured in the video is “Phoenix (We Rise)” by Tom Swoon.

Forza Horizon 3 comes out on September 27, but you can play the game’s Xbox One demo right now. A demo for PC is on the way, but won’t be released until after the game comes out.

In other news about Forza Horizon 3, codes to download the Halo Warthog truck in the game are going out now. You needed to have played Halo 5: Guardians or Halo: The Master Chief Collection to receive a code. Alternatively, there will be an in-game event in October that lets you unlock the vehicle.

Forza Horizon 3 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so you can buy the Xbox One version digitally and get the Windows 10 edition free or vice versa. If you buy the $100 Ultimate Edition, you can start playing four days early, beginning on September 23.

GameSpot’s Forza Horizon 3 review scored the game a 9/10.

“With Forza Horizon 3, Turn 10 and Playground Games affirm the series’ status as the driving game for everyone,” reviewer Miguel Concepcion said. “The new emphasis on off-road options isn’t at the expense of traditional races, thanks to the sheer volume of activities.”
