Forza Horizon 4 goes gold, demo out now for Xbox One and Windows 10

Playground Games' upcoming highly-anticipated driving game Forza Horizon 4 has gone gold with three weeks left on the counter. Celebrating the occasion, the studio has pushed out a demo on the Microsoft Store for both Xbox One and Windows 10 players to try out the game.

The demo features the game's new season-changing mechanic, with drivers being able to witness all four seasons while exploring the open-world title. The map itself, set in Britain this time, will change with the weather as well. For example, open lakes will freeze over during winter time for even more racing real estate, as seen in the E3 announcement trailer.

For those who will be trying it out on Windows 10 PCs, here are the demo's full system requirements, which shares the same specifications as the full game:

This is also when Xbox Game Pass subscribers on both platforms will gain access. However, those with the Ultimate Edition in their libraries will be able to jump in behind the wheel a few days earlier on September 28.
