Your JungleDrums host, AcuteJungle66, delves into this week’s latest tech and gaming news. Actually, scratch that; AJ decides to take a look at the newly released demo for Forza Horizon 4 instead!
- Xbox has announced that Forza Horizon 4 has gone gold. The announcement also contained information about the game’s demo, as well as the reveal that Horizon 4’s Day One Car Pack contains vehicles from both old and recent James Bond films.
- The Forza Horizon 4 demo is currently available on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. You’ll have access to all four of the seasons in the demo, allowing you to drive through the open-world Britain hub and complete challenges in a diverse assortment of environments. Of the game’s 450-plus cars, you have access to about 10.
- If you have Mixer, you can start earning Influence in the Forza Horizon 4 demo that you can use in the main game. Influence is Horizon 4’s version of measuring progression, and can be accrued in the main game by exploring, racing, performing stunts, and taking photos. If you watch someone playing the Horizon 4 demo through a Mixer stream, you’ll gain Influence. You can also earn Influence by streaming Horizon 4, and you’ll get larger rewards for attracting more viewers.
- When Forza Horizon 4 launches, a Day One Car Pack will release alongside it. Called the Best of Bond Car Pack, the DLC includes 10 of Bond’s famous vehicles from his past films, two Bond-inspired outfits for your driver, and six exclusive quick chat phrases you’ll be able to use in multiplayer. The pack can be bought separately, or comes included in Forza Horizon 4‘s Ultimate Edition.
