Extended Windows 8 experience gives Forza Horizon players instant access to open roads of Colorado
Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have today announced the release of Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience, a free download for Windows 8 PCs which works as an interactive map of Colorado - the vast open-world environment where fans will drive, explore, and race against other players. Using familiar navigation gestures like pinch to zoom, Forza Horizon players can explore the interactive map and set waypoints simply by tapping the desired location on the screen. Once a destination is chosen, that waypoint is automatically set in the game and new route directions are presented to the player.
In addition, as with the in-game map, the Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience includes locations of special items such as smashable upgrade discount signs, new race events, and more. Through a set of filters, players will be able to quickly find exactly the event or item they are looking for with just a few swipes of their fingers.
