Forza Horizon release date announced

UPDATE: E3 trailer shows first gameplay.

Forza Horizon made its official debut at Microsoft's E3 conference and duly had a release date slapped on it, with Playground and Turn 10's open world racer coming on October 23.

While few concrete details have emerged on Forza Horizon - a collaboration between Turn 10 and Playground, a new studio headed up by former Codemasters staff - a new trailer seemed to confirm it as an open world racer that takes place in the wilds of the American west.

We'll have a full blowout on the game coming your way as Microsoft's conference wraps up at 7pm BST.
