That is the case as far as I know.

For example, I don't think Sonoma has any options besides Day, but it will still randomly give you midday/dawn/whatever else.

Basically I think a better distinction would be Dry/Weather/Night instead of Day/Weather/Night since there are multiple times of day now.

There's still time to play Forza Horizon 3. Don't ignore it. It's an amazing game. Very different from Forza Motorsport, of course. That's why I like it personally.

This achievement worries me:

Survival of the Fastest - Complete the Spa-Francorchamps 100 showcase event with Extra Long Race Length enabled. - 50G

So...can we set Race Lengths ourselves or are there options like “Extra Long”?

Or maybe this only applies to Showcases.

And it's going to get an XB1X upgrade. Which is nice.

Mechberg changed a race to long during the Forza stream yesterday and it went to 7 laps instead of 3 but maybe it's based on how many laps there are from the start

Gonna add a load of you to my friends list, so I can see where I am on the leader boards compared to you guys and it would be nice to see some familiar names in my single player campaign! Pre-loaded on W10 and Xbox One

Are there any car rewards for Forza reward level? I know about the suits that are unlocked but I want to know if my level 11 will get me some cars too. :)

Fantastic shots G Rom, Any changes to photomode this time around?

I am actually glad there are no reward cars. I sort of miss the old days of slowly building up your car collection, choosing what upgrades are worth it, etc. Horizon works well with the "give you $10m and 20 cars at the start" but the slower progress works best with Motorsport.

Pretty sure you get some cars in those crates. Saw it in an AR12 video - guy was getting FE cars from those VIP crates.

I hope to see this on an Xbox One X at some sort of demo kiosk.
It will be quite some time before I make the jump to 4K but on all accounts it looks stunning.

I remember them saying that they made their own original kits for cars. I'm just curious to see what cars has widebody options and what not.

Screw it, just bought Ultimate Edition for PC. I'm loving PCARS 2 with a wheel and VR for more hardcore type simulation but this should be fun for very pretty driving and car collecting with close to realistic driving. Helps that I havent owned and played a Forza Motorsport game since FM3 so I'm not nearly as burnt out as some people might be on the series.

Wait until you hear that R8 LMS in cockpit view...




Confession time: all the photos I’ve posted so far were taken with stock photo mode settings!





They’ve really nailed the lighting and atmosphere this time around.

Compared with the demo, how is the performance? Stutters in gameplay? In menus?
