Forza Horizon 3 set in Australia

Drive through Australian landscapes in some of the most exciting cars, without consequence.

Forza Horizon 3 Main Jpg

Here at WhichCar, we’d love nothing more than to be able to recklessly drive through some of the country’s urban and country landscapes in ultra-expensive cars, with little to no consequence on the environment, our cars, our bank accounts or the law.

Thankfully, we have simulation games like Forza Horizon to save us from real-world handcuffs or the consequences of driving Lamborghinis through saltwater (cringe!).

Forza Horizon 3 3 Jpg

The Xbox racing video game simulates professional driving in production and modified cars in a similar way to Gran Turismo, while Forza Horizon opens the racetrack to anywhere in the world – streets, beaches, outback, people’s back fences... the usual.

Horizon 3 is set in Australia, and by the looks of the trailer, we can expect plenty of off-roading in buggies, trucks, Ford Raptors and ultra-rare 2017 Lamborghini Centenario which was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show this year and said to be worth more than $1.6 million.

The game’s plot is a group of rich kids, dangerously street racing their rich kid cars. Horizon 1 was based in the USA and 2 in Italy, but Australia opens the game up to a diverse landscape not captured in the other games.

Forza Horizon 3 5 Jpg

The mindboggling, realistic game allows you to drive through some of Australia’s best landscapes, including Byron Bay, Surfers Paradise, and the 12 Apostles, at your own speed, without the usual reality-restrictions. You can fulfill all your left-hand drive only hypercar dreams!

The game is due to launch on September 27 and will be available to play on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC.

But our words don’t do it justice, watch the trailer for yourself.
