The Forza Horizon 2 wiki last edited by bigjeffrey on 07/22/14 11:05AM View full history

Overview

The 2015 Lamborghini Huracan

Similar to the first game, Forza Horizon 2 takes place in an open world around a music festival. It makes the trip across the pond and is set in southern Europe. More specifically it'll be the South of France and Northern Italy, and these two regions combine for three times the area of the first Horizon. This time there's an emphasis on freedom with a reduction of arbitrary walls and guard rails so the player can drive for miles either on road or off road.

Filling this new world are over 700 events, and an estimated 100 hour commitment to getting 100% completion. Cross country races, one of the new event types, sound a lot like Burnout Paradise's point to point races allowing participants to ignore the generated GPS route and take any way they want to the finish line. Another new event, The Bucket List, involve finding specific cars parked in the world and getting in them for a unique challenge. These Bucket List challenges are updateable post launch, so Playground can constantly fill the world new ones (presumably including DLC cars).

Project Gotham Racing lives on in a way in Horizon 2. Playground tweaked the Skills system of the first game, so that it's more front and center and rewards the player for things other than winning, such as stylish driving. There is also a new Perk system, earned through the Skills system, allowing players to gain XP faster among other benefits.

Forza Horizon 2 will support a maximum of 12 players online. That's up from the 8 that Horizon 1 and Forza 5 support. As with many other games in this new generation Horizon has a seamless link between single player and multiplayer. Car clubs make a return once again and will support up to 1000 people. Car Meets, a new feature, lets players meet a specified location to simply check out each others cars, or for more granular things like share tunes, liveries, and cars. Car Meets will also serve as a sort of in game lobby for setting up events.

The game is based on the technology Turn 10 created for Forza Motorsport 5, including drivatars. Horizon 2 will also feature a weather system, a first for the Forza franchise. In order to create the best lighting possible, Playground also claims to have recreated the Earth's atmosphere for life-like accuracy of the color of the sky.

Playground Games, developers of the first Horizon, are once again at the helm. The Xbox 360 version is being made by Sumo Digital. The Xbox One version of the game will run on the engine that powered Forza Motorsport 5, while the Xbox 360 version will run on the Forza Horizon engine.
