Forza Horizon 3 Soundtrack Officially Revealed

Forza-Horizon-3-04

When the off-track, open-world racer known as Forza Horizon was introduced to the gaming world in 2012, it was clear that the atmosphere of the Motorsport spinoff was just as much about the music as it was about car culture.

Now into its third iteration, Playground Games is taking the Horizon Festival experience to new heights in the Land Down Under with 146 songs playing across eight different in-game radio stations. For those keeping ‘score’, that is 79 more audio tracks in Forza Horizon 3 than the series’ original launch on the Xbox 360 (which just became compatible with the Xbox One).

What many may find to be more impressive, however, is the ever-expanding assortment of music genres and artists. Thanks to an official reveal by the Turn 10 Studios community team, we now see just how diverse the soundtrack is in Forza Horizon 3.

Wanna be your own DJ? Microsoft’s Groove music service will allow you to stream your favorites through the app’s in-game integration.

So, our question is this: does Forza Horizon’s less serious take on racing have you more willing to tune in to the in-game radio? Or do the sounds of roaring engines and screeching tires always take priority, regardless of the game’s style? Share your preferences below.

    So I found out Groove Radio is tied to having a OneDrive account… Or so I think.

    Is this free to use, or is this a pay-per-month subscription or whatever?

    I was planning to add my extended Stunt Race FX musics to Forza Horizon 3.

    If anyone can please tell me, I’d be super thankful. See you in Australia!

    1. Kyle Patrick

      From testing, you can upload files to OneDrive for free and they’ll stream fine. Unfortunately, I believe that means you won’t be able to share your playlist. But solo, it’s fine, if a little cumbersome.

    2. BrunetPaquet

      Cool, found out where to upload ’em. Also I always play Solo in Forza games no matter what, and considering Forza and playing Forza with my dad are my only reasons to have an Xbox One, I’m super fine :)

  2. TeamCZRRacing

    That’s not nearly enough metal. Looks like I’m gonna have to make some pretty significant use of the custom playlist feature.

  3. breyzipp

    More radio stations is always nice! And with The Magician and Netsky we got some Belgian blood in there as well.

    Bring it on! I can’t wait for this game! Nice break from all the sim racing as of late.

  4. 2clickswest

    Ugh, getting a feeling that this is gonna be soo good.
    Although I expected AC/DC. Even though I’m not a big fan of the band, they could’ve put a couple songs in the game.

  5. ElementRacer

    Im surprised by the lack of Australian beats. I see Hilltop hoods there but not much else really. Wheres ACDC, Midnigt Oil, 360, Icehouse, Jarryd James, Theres so much potential music wise yet theyve fillet it with dare I say it, crap…

    1. DMGx

      Uhhh pardon me, are you blind? Future Classic radio is a station consisting of nearly 100% Australian artists, sorry there isn’t anything there you recognize…

    2. ElementRacer

      Flume, thats it, ive heard that before. The rest, never, what im talking about is the quintessential legends of aussie music, not something 90% of the country has never heard of

  6. FT-1

    I’m the cat with the bass and dr- Oh wait, wrong game. Bass Arena and Pulse are going to remain as my main stations, though I’ll be flicking onto Future Classic and Block Party too.
