Forza Horizon 2 Overview (Synopsis and Features)

The arcade-style offshoot of Microsoft Studios’ long-running racing series heads to Southern Europe as players speed around an open-world re-creation of the French and Italian Riviera in Forza Horizon 2. Gamers can climb behind the wheel of more than 200 vehicles, from supercars like the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán and the 2011 McLaren 12C to more utilitarian offerings like the 2013 Ram Runner truck and the classic 1963 Volkswagen Camper bus, and once again compete in the fictional mix of music and racing known as the Horizon Festival.

The world of Forza Horizon 2 is designed to be roughly three times as large as that of its predecessor, with far more off-road opportunities thanks to the ability to weave through dense forests, smash through back country fences, and plow through vineyards. Realistic weather and day and night cycles greet players as they seamlessly explore the world, jumping from solo racing to online play instantly, and competing in a variety of races, events, and skill competitions.

Forza Horizon 2 requires 4GB of hard drive space in order to acess features such as replays and ghost cars.
