You won't need to wait until September 30 to play upcoming Xbox racing game Forza Horizon 2. Microsoft announced today on the Xbox Wire that a demo for the Xbox One version of the game will launch on September 16.

The demo will let you try out the open-world racing game and a "handful" of cars, though none were named specifically. Forza Horizon 2 is also coming to Xbox 360, but Microsoft did not say if a demo for that version will also be available.

Microsoft also today announced the full achievement list for the Xbox One version of Forza Horizon 2. You can see all of the game's achievements in the chart below.

Xbox One hasn't even released in my country and they're already ready to release a second Forza game for it. I find this to be weired.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Actually no, if it's like Forza 5, which I'd expect, the gameplay runs at 60fps, meanwhile the menus and "beauty shots" and replays run at 30fps.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Forza Horizon 1 on 360 is 30fps and I still find it perfectly playable, and a far more enjoyable game than Forza 5 which is 60fps

Framerate isn't everything

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Yeah Horizon is more an arcade thrasher for flying around country lanes and things. Regular Forza is a more serious racer. Pretty much two different target audiences.

So? 30fps is just fine to me. I play 30fps games and 60fps and I can tell no difference. If you want to get technical, the 1080P standard specifies 30hz for TV and movies (higher for 3D).

I spent a few hours playing both consoles at the local independent game shop and came away more impressed with the X1 than PS4. Maybe on bigger screens the 1080p thing is noticeable but on smaller screens I couldn't tell the games apart. I had much more fun playing Forza 5 and Titanfall than Knack, Killzone and all the indie crap games combined. No wonder there are hella PS4s used on Craigslist and at Gamestop.


Controller for X1 is much better for me. PS4 controller feels comfortable but it also feels like a cheap piece of plastic, which it is. Every single PS4 controller at demo stations has the analog stick rubber worn off. X1 nice and clicky and solid. It has better games coming out, in my opinion of course, this year with Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive and Halo remaster coming, count me in. Keep going, MS. And keep going, haters. It's only making them try that much harder to give us great games.


And to all you losers out there, I do have a PS3 and PS2 which I enjoy. I went in wanting to like the PS4 and came out less than impressed so far. Maybe next year when there are some games that are good and I can't already play on PS3.

<< LINK REMOVED >> It is refreshing to see someone with an open mind on this site. The comments you made have been said by others about the lower resolution on the Xbox One. It only shows on larger TVs. The reason that I pick the Xbox One is the games because in the end it is all about having fun.

@wookiegr @XBone4DaWin I laugh because this is the second time I've seen you gallantly defending the Playstation on an Xbox article. I agree @XBone4DaWin is slandering a game, he probably knows nothing about. But when you jump in and call him a "fantard", you come across as a Pony. Let's all just get along.

From what I'm hearing about Horizon 2 it sounds like a 10/10 right now.

Why? Can you actually see 30 unique images every second? Is that the #1 most important thing in the world for a game? I can't tell any difference between 30FPS and 60FPS myself.

Why do they have to do this to us... I mean it's like taking a finger full of frosting knowing you can't eat the cake until after dinner. I will get a taste of Horizon 2 and then have to wait 2 weeks for the actual release. I don't know if I can do it.

Probably to showcase the game to people on the fence - like me. I never got 1 - something just didn't excite me in the trailers. I'm feeling that way about this one too. But a demo might sway me if I like it.

You missed out. TBH I was put off by the trailers too, so I got it through my Gamefly account. I couldn't get enough of it. Horizon was definitely one of the must play 360 games.

The 67 stingray is in there, but not the 69.
I personally prefer the 67 myself.
