Turn 10 Studios has announced that Forza Horizon, the free-wheeling, music-loving cousin of the Forza Motorsport series will get its first sequel and move on to the Xbox One. The new title should hit not only the X1, but also its predecessor, the Xbox 360, this fall.

Certainly, following the debut of Forza Motorsport 5 as a launch title for the Xbox One last fall, there's been room for more of Forza's awesome blend of customization and racing. With the arrival of Forza Horizon 2, it's hoped that some of the mistakes of the original next-gen title can be sorted out.

Turn 10 Studios is teaming with Playground Games, the same outfit responsible for the original Xbox 360 title, and is promising hundreds of cars, led by the Lamborghini Huracán, according to IGN. FM5's innovative Drivatar system will also be tweaked for open-world duty when FH2 arrives.

Also making a debut this fall will be the Forza universe's first weather system. Details are scarce, although in regards to impact on future games, this is far and away the biggest deal. As for where that weather will be experienced, we can look forward to zooming about the roads and highways of southern Europe, according to IGN.

According to FH2's creative director, Ralph Fulton, the new location, which will remain centered around a music festival, will offer "incredible diversity" and "amazing vistas."

As we mentioned, Forza Horizon 2 will hit Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles this fall, with prices starting at $59.99 for the X1 version and $49.99 for the 360 version. European gamers will be paying 69.99 euro, while those in the UK will shell out 59.99 pounds for the next-gen game and 20 euros/pounds less for the 360 title.

Of course, as soon as more info on Forza Horizon 2 becomes available, we'll be sure to pass it along. Take a look below for a short video from the crew at IGN.

      Forza Horizon was a great idea but I found the execution lacking. While the map and the available event locations were great, the characters and story were mostly fluff. 70% of the characters talked in Bro-Speak, not exactly exotic car owner material. Also, the "music festival" theme was very, very cheesy.

      Car enthusiasts don't play video games. Car enusiasts driv their cars and talk about them. Car games are for unemployed peasants living in their mom's basement who can only dream of owning a nice car.

        I'm a car enthusiast and I play video games. My existence must flabbergast you. Disclaimer: I have mostly stopped gaming recently due to a newborn child.

        @Fueltothefire . Car Enthusiasts don't sit behind the keyboard in their mother's room commenting on a racing video game either.

        You are the guy on a forum talking trash about a video game, so what does that make you? A lot lower than the peasants you were just describing, its ok that you hate your life though. Maybe you should just end it?

        > Car games are for unemployed peasants living in their mom's basement who can only dream of owning a nice car. Have you seen the time, effort and cost that goes into prepping for even the grassiest of grassroots races like 24 Hours of Lemons?
