The 2013 SRT Viper in Forza Horizon

New Forza Horizon information revealed with video at E3

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) kicked off in Los Angeles this morning and the key attraction to the gaming world is the fresh information on Forza Horizons – an open-world racing game that could be the game that sets the new standard by which every other driving game on the market is judged.

The folks at Turn 10, the company responsible for the incredible Forza racing series, have kept pretty quiet about the upcoming open world driving game Forza Horizon shy of the fact that the new game would feature the 2013 SRT Viper but today, we get our first good look at Forza Horizon.
And it looks absolutely incredible.

Forza Horizon is based in Colorado around the fictitious Horizon Festival – a festival centered around live music and some of the most incredible cars in the world. Unlike the traditional Forza Motorsport games that are focused strictly around sanctioned racing on closed circuit courses, Horizon offers a variety of racing types including point to point, drifting, stunt driving and circuit racing with much of the action taking place on the scenic open roads of Colorado. Turn 10 promises over 60 different types of racing surfaces on road and off, offering the first sample of the awesome Forza series dynamics on something other than a paved surface intended for racing. Unlike Forza 1 through 4, Horizon will have you racing more than cars, with events pitting you against helicopters and fight planes as you earn points for smashing through obstacles and roadside items.
