Confirmed by Playground Games, there will be a demo of the upcoming Forza Horizon to be released next month in a move that’s described as being absolutely critical in convincing people that Forza hasn’t been ruined. Ralph Fulton, Design Director for Playground Games goes on to say the following:
“They’ll be able to pick it up and go, ‘Okay, I see what they’ve done here’. And equally, the people who are like ‘I didn’t get on with Forza Motorsport for whatever reason, is this for me?’, I think the Xbox Live demo is going to be a great way for them to pick it up and see how this is different.”
Forza Horizon has been the subject of anticipation and confusion alike, and hopefully with the release of the demo it will go a long way into proving it’s worth past how it’s been built up.
