‘Forza Horizon 3’ Goes Down Under

The latest in Microsoft’s open world Forza spin-off, Forza Horizon 3 will be set in Australia and features a map “twice as big as Forza Horizon 2′s.” The car roster size has also increased, promising the largest number of drivable vehicles yet.

The trailer put a heavy emphasis on its jungle and beach locales, though sadly there were no billabongs to be seen. Check out the trailer below:

Horizon 3 will also be a part of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program, which allows a one-time purchase of the game that can be used on both Windows PC and Xbox One. Sounds like a vegemighty bonus to us!

While my inner car nerd rankles at a Lamborghini Centenario with no ground clearance and racing tires somehow being able to drive across sand, Horizon has traditionally nailed the “arcade with a touch of simulation” branch of racing games. Here’s hoping Horizon 3 won’t boomerang on us.

Expect it to exclusively roll up on Xbox One and PC Sept. 27, 2016.
