A comprehensive list of cars that will feature in Forza Horizon 4 was formally revealed over the weekend. The list confirms that the leaks back in June were true, it being equipped with some current favourites in the world of luxury supercars, such as the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and Lamborghini’s latest Centenario LP 770-4.
This is Forza, however, which means among the shiny asphalt and gleaming pearlescence, there are some funny appearances from the lower end of brake horsepower.
The Reliant Regal Supervan III from Forza Motorsport 3 returns in Horizon 4, allowing you to traverse the sprawling terrain on three glorious wheels. Fans of British TV classic Only Fools and Horses will know the car as Del Boy’s famed vehicle. And, yes, you can bet that the Forza series’ famed decal options will accommodate fans of the show.
The Britishness doesn’t end there, however. It was announced earlier this year that the game lets you drive around the UK and will let you, should you wish, drive through the country lanes in one of London’s iconic black cabs. This particular feature is perhaps Forza’s best attempt at fantasy given that the black cab is both free to ride in and can go faster than 20 mph.
The less traditional options aren’t just from UK car companies, though. You can expect to rally offroad in beasty Ram Power Wagons and dominate narrow country roads, or live through the Second World War in the awesome (yet amusingly slow) Willys MB Jeep. I can’t recommend taking out the last one against a Lotus Esprit, mind you, as it won’t come equipped with traditional artillery to favour more aggressive tacticians. That doesn’t stop you from ramming into unsuspecting players though – if you can catch up with them.
You can also expect to drive a few run-of-the-mill cars, such as Ford Fiestas and Vauxhall Corsas, should you wish to play a game that’s a little more true to life.
Forza Horizon 4 will also feature a mini-quest system, akin to the likes of Crazy Taxi, which will see you complete procedurally generated quests in a vehicle of your choosing – but tight deadlines might make you lean towards the series speedier choices. If the sillier cars don’t take your fancy, you might want to take a look at the full list of cars that have been announced for the game. Forza Horizon 4 is out on October 2nd, so you won’t have to wait long to drive yourself round in whatever car you crave.
