Horizon Festival is back in Forza Horizon 2, the sequel to 2012’s Forza Horizon, as players travel to Southern Europe to race in an enormous open world set in picturesque locations such as Provence, Tuscany and Côte d’Azur. The game features a day-and-night cycle, and races can take place at any time. A dynamic weather system makes for unexpected twists in weather conditions and marks the first time a weather system has been added to a Forza game.
“Bucket List” is a new feature to the game which sets forth a group of challenges for the player to complete, in a manner identical to the 1000 Club in Forza Horizon, with separate lists for France and Italy. There are also Co-Op Bucket Lists, available when the player goes to the online version of the game map. These can be completed with either random strangers or with friends, online. Furthermore, Car Meets is an online mode in which players can meet up online to compare their cars in a way similar to that of the Forzavista mode in Forza Motorsport 5. The online version of the game features such races as circuits, sprints and cross-country, as well as special game types like infected and king. The Xbox One version of the game brings back the Drivatar technology that fills players’ worlds with their friends even when they’re not online. The player can choose to create their own ‘Car Club’, which can include up to 1000 members.
The game features a slew of cars to drive, numbering well over 200 and including exotic cars, rally cars, trucks, hot hatches, off-roaders, classic muscle cars and many more, all recreated with an obsessive attention to detail. The game includes top-performing cars like the Lamborghini Huracán, the Lamborghini Veneno, the McLaren p1, the LaFerrari, the Agera and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Players can find even more cars in special barns, located off-road that the player must explore to find.
