    The screenshots are gorgeous. I'm not a UK native, only been once a long time ago, but the lighting & atmosphere gives me that vibe only the UK has.

    Super excited! The trailer looked amazing! Quick question because I can’t remember but how many cars were at launch of FH3?

    Might want to add the bits about avatar customisation and property owning to the OP, those are pretty huge deals for most.

    In essence, that's around 100 cars facing the axe. If there are no more Forza Editions and GT Racing cars, then that will soften the blow.

    I lived in England from 1982 to 1984. I remember one Sunday afternoon riding my motorcycle on Dragon Hill Road in Oxford when I crested a hill, and the Uffington White Horse was right in front of me. I had never seen it before or even knew what it was, but I knew I was looking at something extraordinary. I pulled over and simply took it in for several minutes. I've only felt that kind of powerful presence a few times in my life. So it will be good to go back in digital form, at least.

    But a very different climate from Southern France and Spain though.

    I like the new smashable stone walls.

    One of the things that we should probably keep our eye on is Toyota. We have seen the same sort of thing we saw in the run up to Forza 7's release where we only saw the AAR Eagle. This time around we have Iron Man Stewart's Baja truck and the Arctic Trucks Hilux pretty prominent in the E3 trailers and demos.

    If it is the same sort of thing like Forza 7, where only Toyota adjacent vehicles from people like TRD and Arctic Trucks, then I think it might be fair to say that we have another exclusivity deal in the vein of Porsche with Toyota/Lexus and PD.

    Do you think this will be a showcase event?

    For some reason I was like "Watch out!", expecting the car to come to a suddenly come to a stop but nope - life continued as normal. :lol:

    It's a really small detail, but I do like the names given to various skills in Horizon games. No doubt there are going to be new skills named after the new seasons, wildlife and stone walls.

    I'm guessing both the hovercraft and dirt bikes are from showcase events. I'm also going to make a bold prediction and say there will also be one involving a plane. :p

    Likely. Same goes with the Fiesta RX vs the dirt bikes.

    Would like to hope one involves a steam train, since we invented that.

    Technically train race showcases have been done twice already in FH2 and FH3. The steam train race was in FH2.

    I just noticed while rewatching the trailer that the person driving the Senna has mittens on during the winter portion. :lol:

    And they've had a plane showcase in all 3 games. They haven't been the most original with them. :lol:

    Well then maybe race a kid in a North Face tracksuit and Matching Baseball cap in a Ford Fiesta as a new showcase then?

    Cargo plane. We're dropping you into the UK like a battle royale.
