With everyone going absolutely bonkers over the launch of Destiny, it’s easy to forget that there are actually still a ton of games coming out over the next few weeks. Some are further than others, but most of them are less than a month away. Take Forza Horizon 2 for example. It’s looking like one of the most stunning games to launch on the Xbox One yet, and it’s out in really, really soon.

Which is why the game now has a launch trailer, although it’s still a good three weeks away from hitting shelves. I’ll leave the premature release jokes at the door, but only because I can’t get over how gorgeous Horizon 2 is looking. Well, how good it looks on the Xbox One at least.

Forza Horizon was a surprisingly awesome arcade racer, one that broke away from the name’s simulation racing roots. The same studio is behind this year’s sequel, so there’s little doubt in my mind that it’ll be any worse than one the Xbox 360’s top racing titles.

We won’t have to wait long after the local Xbox One launch to hit the streets wither, with Forza Horizon 2 launching on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October 3rd. There’s also a demo exclusively for Xbox One on September 16th.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

    Its only 30fps, OLD GEN. Moving on.

      Car games dont need more

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        The opposite. All driving games like FORZA 2,3,4,5 GT4,5 make it a required standard.
        Playing FORZA after F1 2012, is like night and day.

          Now you seriously have me interested 😉

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            fixed 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            If only you were 😛

          • Hahahaha! BOOM!

          • The Adventures of JJ

            Damn it. Now my comment looks stooopid

          • Hammersteyn

            He did say fixed, so you’re fine

          • The Adventures of JJ

            With OVG around is any one of us ever really fine?

          • Hammersteyn

            I trust OVG more than some other Emperors or Rinceables.

          • The Adventures of JJ

            Now that’s what I call bravery. Though the Emperor can never really be trusted. You know, because…http://theymightbegazebos.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/aliens.png

          • Hammersteyn
          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I don’t know why, but I imagine that baby talking like Marlon Brando in The Godfather.

          • Hammersteyn

            It’s his low brow?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            There’s only one emperor, and I’m perfectly trustworthy as long as you’re on my side.

          • The Adventures of JJ

            Dictator.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Potato, Potahkillhim

          • Hammersteyn

            You sound like Murica

          • Oi!

          • Yes, yes it does. But you can rest assured you look far more stupid… *runs

          • Hammersteyn

            It’s because you’re cross eyed

        • FoxOneZA

          Are you implying that next-gen has taken a step backwards? 😛

          • The Adventures of JJ

            Don’t be silly. They’ve always been two steps behind. 😉

    • Gareth L (That eXCheez Guy)

      Really? Are you that fickle?

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        Far to spoilt.

    • FoxOneZA

      Forza only runs at 60fps on new or old gen. What you on about?

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        This game is 30fps because they are going for 1080p.

        • FoxOneZA

          No. It’s 1080p/60fps with weather effects. You are confusing Forza Horizon 2 with DriveDub 😉

          • Xcalibersa

            “The Xbox One version of Microsoft’s upcoming racing game Forza Horizon 2 will run in 1080p at 30fps, creative director at Ryan Fulton has confirmed. 2012’s original Forza Horizon for Xbox 360 ran at a locked 30fps, and Fulton says it was imperative that the studio carried this forward for the sequel”

            Sorry dude

          • FoxOneZA

            Oh damn, just Googled that now >_>

          • demfax

            Calling good games like Driveclub childish fanboy names while being wrong about Forza Horizon 2 framerate. Good job.

          • Hammersteyn

            Still looks very pretty

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            Like this?

          • Ottokie

            PGR is an awesome under rated racing game 😛

          • Gareth L (That eXCheez Guy)

            I still don’t see this as an issue. I own and play Forza Horizon, there’s *nothing* game-breaking about 30fps.

          • Hammersteyn

            *DriveClub
            Wait never mind, trolling obviously
            *confusing

  • Xcalibersa

    Meh, still can not beat NFS Porsche. That was great. This looks ok,

    Man I wish they had just made RaceRoom a decent game and not this free to play, micro-transaction infested heap of kak. It actually quite good. Sounds amazing, looks nice, handles well.
    But I can’t spend the price of a game for a track and one car.

  • CypherGate

    Damn that trailer was great i must admit. The graphics was impressive as well. So looking forward to this game… Now the only issue is actually getting money to buy an X1. So sad lol
