A few hours ago, Microsoft finally released the Forza Horizon 3 PC demo. You can download it here; the size of this Forza Horizon 3 PC demo is around 20 GB.

Obviously, there’s only a small portion of the events available in the full game. Interestingly, though, when you’re done with all of them you’ll be able to keep roaming in an online free-roam session across the Forza Horizon 3 PC demo map.

Your tour Down Under begins in classic Horizon fashion – with beautiful scenery, great driving roads, and awesome vehicles. From the moment the action begins, you are unmistakably in Australia, with all of its awe-inspiring beauty and tremendous environmental diversity. You’ll blast along ocean-side roads, and race on the beach alongside the famed Twelve Apostles landmarks. You’ll grab ludicrous air off of Danger Sign jumps buried deep in the Australian rainforests, and have a chance to get sideways through Drift Zones in Byron Bay.

Microsoft also updated the Xbox One demo of the game, adding HDR support for the benefit of those gamers who own both an Xbox One S and an HDR compatible display. In case you’re curious about the PC requirements (which are the same of the full game save for the fact that the demo takes way less space of your hard drive), take a look at them below.

According to our Forza Horizon 3 review by Chris Wray, Playground made one of the best racing games available on the market. The first car pack just released, by the way, and the developer also teased a winter-themed expansion.
