The game is set in a fictitious take on the United Kingdom and will feature over 450 cars, a full list of which was released last week.
Microsoft and Playground Games also detailed the first DLC pack that will be offered with Forza Horizon 4: the ‘Best of Bond Car Pack’. The pack exclusively features vehicles that appeared in Bond films and includes the following:

Forza says several of the cars will feature gadgets inspired by the James Bond films that the player will be able to view in the Forzavista vehicle viewing mode. For example, the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 will feature a revolving number plate and retracting bumper ram bars. The Lotus Esprit S1 will also be available with a body kit that will make it look like the amphibious version that featured in the 1977 Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. The pack includes exclusive outfits for the player’s in-game avatar as well, along with exclusive quick-chat phrases for use in multiplayer mode.
Finally, Microsoft also announced the Forza Horizon 4 Demo Sweepstakes competition, which is open to residents of the US and Canada. Two lucky winners of the draw will receive an all-expenses paid trip and participation in the Pure McLaren driving experience, which will allow them to sample a McLaren 570S GT4 on a race circuit with instruction from professional instructors. They will also receive an Xbox One X, a copy of Horizon 4 and an Xbox Elite controller. To enter, all you have to do is play the Horizon 4 demo between now and October 2nd.
