Forza Horizon, the latest in the Xbox exclusive racing series, is coming to 360 on October 23, Microsoft just announced during its E3 press event. The game's been under wraps since it was announced in March, but a trailer revealed a little of what we can expect.

As well as filling our ears with brostep, the trailer showed offroad tracks and spectacular crashes. The idea is, Microsoft explained, to combine super racing with the festival atmosphere that's so popular with people wot like cars going fast.

We'll assault your ears and please your eyes when we have the trailer ourselves.

      Ugh, the initial description makes it sound like they're taking Forza in the same direction that EA took Need For Speed a decade ago (i.e.: off the rails into crazytown). Some may say it's boring, but I love taking all kinds of cars onto known tracks like Tsukuba Circuit, Nurburgring GP-F, etc.

      Hopefully this is just the saying that DLC will carry Forza 4, and that they're starting a new crazy title alongside.

        I hope they'll continue the classic, track-focused series along side this new open-ended road racing series. I really loved the Need for Speed games because of the road racing part and I'd love to have something like that again, but with realistic driving physics.

        the tracks get booooring. Adding some interesting new tracks / environments with realistic physics would be great.

          I wish they would just add some point to point tracks to Forza instead of creating a new arcade racer.

          Have they even done any DLC tracks for Forza 4 aside from the soccer thing? What is going on with that :(

        From what I heard this is a Spin off not a replacement for the regular Forza series. I'd guess Forza 5 when it appears will likely be for the next Xbox.

        But you have all of those tracks in Forza 4 (and probably 5). There are other people in the world, some like different things, shocking I know. :D

      If they keep the same driving / physics engine then that's awesome!! As long as they keep pumping out "traditional" Forza games as well.
