You’re in charge of the Horizon Festival. Customize everything, hire and fire your friends, and explore Australia in over 350 of the world’s greatest cars. Make your Horizon the ultimate celebration of cars, music, and freedom of the open road. How you get there is up to you.
Forza Horizon 3 is a racing video game set in an open world environment based in Australia, with the map twice the size of that in Forza Horizon 2, and includes places such as Surfers Paradise, Byron Bay, Yarra Valley and the Outback. The game features a four-player co-operative multiplayer campaign and cross-platform play, as it is a part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program. A total of 350 cars are available to players at launch – the most amount of cars to be featured in a Horizon game as of yet.
While previous Horizon games have depicted the player as one of the racers of the Horizon Festival, the player is now the director of the Festival, and their role is to make it the biggest festival in the world. As director, the player can hire or fire racers as well as organise and customise races and Bucket List events around the map using the new Horizon Blueprint feature. The player can customise the character’s style and ethnicity, as well as being able to customise the vehicles with custom paints and designs, upgrades and body kits from more popular manufacturers Rocket Bunny and Liberty Walk.
