In case you missed it, at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), video game developer Playground Games previewed the forthcoming fourth installment in the Forza Horizon series, which is set to be released in October of this year. Watching the E3 trailer above, one might get the impression that Ford has been all but left out of the game.
Not so; as Motor1 reports, the list of more-than-450 cars that will appear in Forza Horizon 4 has been leaked, as game files began preloading onto customers’ PCs by accident. The list of playable cars includes no fewer than 46 Ford-branded machines, plus one rather out-of-place Mercury, including such highlights as the 2005 and 2017 Ford GT supercars, Ford GT40 Mks I and II (1964 and 1966, respectively), the 1977 Ford Escort RS1800, 1985 Ford RS200 Evo, and 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500.
Mustang fans have plenty of reason to celebrate, too, as the list includes a total of eight Mustang models: the 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe, 1969 Mustang Boss 302, the 1993 and 2000 SVT Cobra Rs, 2013 Shelby GT500, 2016 Shelby GT350R, 2019 Mustang GT, and Hoonigan’s 1965 Mustang “Hoonicorn”. Perhaps best of all, the 2010 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor has made the cut.
As for the “out-of-place” Mercury mentioned above, it’s none other than the 1949 Mercury Coupe.
Previous titles in the Forza Horizon series have changed things up by selecting a brand-new backdrop for each game (Colorado, France/Italy, Australia), and the series’ fourth entry is no different, being set in the United Kingdom. Building off the “Horizon Blueprint” feature found in the last game, which allowed players to organize and customize different events around the map, Forza Horizon 4 will include a route creator function to allow players to create their own races.
