Forza Horizon 4 is the first game in the series to be set in the United Kingdom, home to developer Playground Games. While the game's map doesn't try to accurately recreate entire regions of the UK, there are indeed more than a few amazingly well-portrayed locations that UK folks may recognize.
Chris Trentham, Environment Artist at Playground Games, went on a vacation to Scotland and decided to share via Twitter a series of game-to-real-life comparisons of Forza Horizon 4. Some of them are truly impressive, particularly the ones from the city of Edinburgh. We'll let the pictures speak for themselves below (the real life version is always the first pictures of the couple).

According to Chris, Forza Horizon 4 is the greatest game to ever be released in the franchise and among the finest racing games you could buy today. You can get it for both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One via Microsoft Store.
Forza Horizon 4 is nothing short of fantastic. With a host of content, backed by a fantastic roster of cars that tread the fine line between arcade and simulation perfectly. While the amalgamated UK may be a little too pristine, not completely reflecting reality, it's such a stunning and enjoyable place to race around that any issues are washed away in the utter fun you're having. Forza Horizon 4 is, without a shadow of a doubt, the pinnacle of the series and arguably the best racing game you can buy.
There’s a sound argument to be made that Playground Games have honed their craft to a near perfection. While there’s little doubt that the core gameplay of Forza Horizon 4 hasn’t fundamentally differed at all from the previous outing in Australia, the inclusion of seasons, the improvement in graphical fidelity and the sheer quality of content lets it surpass the previous Forza Horizon.
