Forza Horizon 4 Leak Reveals Halo Crossover Event and Upcoming Car Collections


Forza Horizon 4 won’t be officially released until October, but some folks already have the game’s files, as they were accidentally made available for pre-load on PC back in June. Since then, some clever fans have been doing a bit of digging and discovered some rather interesting things!

Forza Horizon 4 developer Playground Games recently revealed a ton of info about the game via a series of seasonally-themed livestreams – I suggest you check out spring, summer, fall, and winter. Here’s the official Forza Horizon 4 description for those who haven’t been keeping up:

Open-World Freedom – Forza Horizon 4 allows players to choose their path to becoming a Horizon Superstar.
