Forza Horizon is set to hit shelves on October 23, and the good people at Turn 10 have been kind enough to give us all a glimpse at what their new video game will bring to the racing table when it bows. Unlike previous racers, Turn 10 says Forza Horizon will be more of an open sandbox, allowing players to race around on hundreds of miles of simulated Colorado roads while facing down oncoming traffic. We're sure there will be some sort of appropriately lengthy disclaimer discouraging players from street racing like they do in the game out in the real world.

The newest addition to the Forza library includes plenty of night racing, dirt road action and a massive in-game motorsports festival called, fittingly enough, "Horizon." At any point, players can stop and photograph the scenery and their cars within it. Looks very cool to us. You can check out the first behind the scenes video below for more information as well as plenty of in-game clips. Stay tuned for more videos as they're released.

      Oh my god!! This is the nail in gran turismos coffin. I grew up on gran Turismo but have watched them fall from the top by falling behind the paradigm shift, kind of like the iPhone 5

        So how exactly does an open world racer similar to Need for Speed put a nail in GT's coffin?

          By expanding the brand....gt was great growing up but after 3 they haven't done much to wow anyone. The psp version took forever to make then the same happened with 5 but that was after releasing prologue which was nothing short of a money grab

        The lack of weather is annoying though. Would love to drive in snow and rain.

        But this is an open world arcade racer so I think you mean Test Drive's or Need for speed's coffin.

      Hey, could someone clear up ... is this open world and you can drive anywhere (as in TDU).... or pre-determined circuits out in nature?

      Why does this site insist on shilling for baby toy video games?

      I like it, but I wish they had spent the resources on improving the physics engine instead

        The physics engine is great, no clue what you are talking about.

      You know what else I see in the "horizon"? A thousand and one map/car packs after it's release. Can't figure out which is more money-hungry, Turn 10 or EA.

        I'd rather have the choice of buying more content for my game than not having the choice at all. It is not free to create content for these games and the cars in the car packs work out to 70 cents each which is still cheaper than a Hot Wheels car. Nevermind the fact that just about every car pack released for Forza 4 comes with a free car.

      Anyone else over 30 think a rock concert for cars is a little... off? If there is some announcer even 10% as annoying as that dip in Pro Street, you can count me OUT.

      Holy moly - my right foot went down and upper lip just got that "shoot the gap!" twinge. If the physics are there this could replace my weekly PS3 GT Nurburgring stress relieving sessions. Yes, the company has to do the "yeah, we are hip!" marketing thing - I understand. But if they let me blast across Colorado at dusk in a ZO6 doing a hundred and forty plus - more power to them.
