If you’re the type who enjoys the odd bit of driving games, but don’t want to splash out on a game you might not enjoy, then this weekend on Xbox One has a treat for you. Turn 10 Studios and Xbox have made Forza Motorsport 6 free for the weekend, up until August 28th.
It’s the full game too, so don’t worry about certain content being locked out. Hop into the quick tutorial, buy your first car, and get racing. Why not explore it in the amazing Forzavista mode, which is every gear head’s dream?
Forza Motorsport 6 is filled to the brim with quality content, from immense amounts of championships to take part in, Rival races to challenge your friends and their times (press X a few times when looking at any in-game leaderboard to compare with your buddies), Showcase events that unlock as you progress, and then there’s the multiplayer.
Multiplayer is choc-full of variations, and if you just want to race with your friends, set up a Private Game, make your own rules, and invite them in. Public races can sometimes get a bit ‘Destruction Derby’, but don’t let that steer you away from it.
“Experience unrelenting action in the most beautiful and comprehensive racing game of this generation. Collect, customize, and race over 450 Forzavista cars, all with working cockpits, opening doors and full damage. Compete in epic 24-player races across 26 world-famous locales. Master wet weather and night racing on your road to victory.”
“Stunning realism at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second / The danger and intensity of night racing comes alive under the stadium lights of Daytona and in the utter blackness of Le Mans’ back stretch / Experience the immersion of racing in the rain as working wipers barely clear the spray and tires hydroplane across physically-based 3D puddles.”
