Forza Horizon 4 was created around racing as a group
Naturally we did not get a peek at the full online co-op integration or its own multiplayer of the game. But we did get the chance to play through the four seasons the game will have and feel for ourselves how they affect.
The differences in your driving is impacted by the seasons array from infinitesimal. You could end up halfway across a frozen lake of pulling it with no expectation, or delicately squinting against some sun.
As it has to do with altering how you play, winter, by way of instance, is the stand out. We roared through a trail that has been covered in ice, snow and spattered with suspended water stains within an off road truck. But the driving in the winter was, as you would expect, a lot harder than in the other seasons. The trail was far slippier and we found ourselves hammering the fracture and skidding out of control a whole lot more often.
Spring, wasn't the easiest. When seasonal showers are pouring back on your way around you, there's not much in the way of solid grip and skidding is likely. When you're driving a forest dirt track during soft mud. Summer and autumn were our seasons to push in. Summer particularly, regardless of the bright sun, offered dry streets your tires can grip to making for particularly gratifying skids and tight turns.
