Confirmed:





Found on Reddit, note "Ultimate edition" as Assetto Corsa doesn't have an ultimate edition.

Neat.

Won't play it, though - going to binge the hell out of the game when the Ultimate version is ready. Playing the demo would just make the wait more painful.

hope pc gets a demo too

This X100000

I need to see if this games runs well.

Think the UE is worth it? I was looking at that. I want to go hard on this game, but the majority of extra content seems to be cars? Is any of it actual gameplay missions or anything?

The other 2 Horizon games have had demos, right? I know Horizon 2 did at least, because I played it a lot.

I dunno, at $130CDN it was an insane thing to pick up, but the Forza games are some of my favourite (and most played) so paying a little extra up front for everything seemed worth it as I usually pick up the other stuff anyway.

I still think the VIP aspect is kind of dumb, though. This is the first one I've spent so much on, but I get really into them.

Pretty sure all the extra content is just cars, too, which makes it a little harder to swallow.

edit - I also owned both of the freebie packs already that they were offering for Forza 6 and Forza Horizon 2 as a bonus

Nice. I hope they let you continue on after the demo with the full release like FH2 did.

They had me at FH3, but I'll definitely try the demo.

IIRC the FH2 demo unlocked some stuff in the full game...

The Season/Car Pass is typically ~7 new cars per month for 6 months. If we assume that FH3 will include most of the cars from Forza 6, then you'll already have access to a diverse list of 450+ cars in the base game. Any new missions/challenges are usually included with DLC expansion packs, of which I'm sure there'll be a Porsche expansion for FH3 as there was for FH2 and FM6.

I'll be getting the Ultimate Edition because it's only an extra $20 AUD, and you get to play a few days early.

FH2 did, and it was pretty meaty.

Data-mining might put them off with it.
Who cares when the game is releasing in two weeks anyway and most of the cars are announced? I think they are better served getting PC players excited about Microsoft franchises.

The last couple Forza games have had demos, right? Makes sense they would continue the tradition. I'm usually not a racing fan, but this one has my interest.

How would a demo work on Windows..

Have some been released or are there any currently? I think Apex is different

I'm not gonna get my hopes up of this coming there.

It would work like the full game but limit where you can go and what you can drive? I don't see why a demo would be an issue?

Well the first 2 had demos and Fast &Furious was a glorified demo so this should have been expected no?

I just stumbled upon this:

https://youtu.be/AHoIZwjlCf0

A guy going off the track and exploring the pprtion of the map that's included in the demo, until invisible walls stop him from breaking the game.
I don't think it's been posted before
