The 2013 SRT Viper on the cover of Forza Horizon

The 2013 SRT Viper to cover Forza Horizon, pics included

The folks at Microsoft have just unveiled the first screenshot and an look at the cover of the upcoming driving game Forza Horizon – showing that the 2013 SRT Viper in action in the game while also appearing on the cover of the new game in bright yellow with black stripes.

Microsoft announced months ago that there was a new installation coming to the incredible Forza Motorsport series but with the formal introduction of Forza Horizon through a single screenshot and a look at the cover, we have an early idea as to what to expect with the help of the 2013 SRT Viper.

Very little information is available on Forza Horizon but the company promises that the new driving simulator “combines the automotive thrills that Forza fans expect with a gorgeous open-road world that begs to be explored” with our first look at this world featuring the gorgeous new SRT Viper GTS. Based on this short description, we expect that Forza Horizon will be unlike the Forza Motorsport series games that take place strictly on sanctioned race courses around the world while the new Horizon title will have a free-drive feel similar to popular titles like Test Drive series and many of the Need for Speed games.

There has been no indication whether Forza Horizon will take place on “real” roads around the world or if Horizon will occur in a fictional location created for the game but anyone who plays Forza Motorsport 4 (like myself) can expect this new game to be 101% awesome. Both the initial screenshot shown on the right (and available larger in the gallery) showing the new Viper appear to be in desert areas with mountains in the foreground and background.
