Playground Games, which was recently acquired by Microsoft, revealed Forza Horizon 4 at E3 this year. During Microsoft’s Inside Xbox Gamescom 2018 Special, Playground Games revealed more about the title’s online features work and unveiled Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles that include Forza Horizon 4. 

One of these new modes is called Team Adventure, a revamp of the Online Adventure mode. According to the developers, this mode’s Forza Horizon 4 update rewards skill more and adds new team-based elements to the mode. Your team needs to perform well in order to get enough points to beat the other team. Players can also send out quick little messages to their teammates if they are not connected via voice chat.

The game can be played completely online, but can easily be switched to the offline mode for those who prefer that. It will also automatically switch if the internet is disconnected. A new Survivor mode has also been added, where players need to avoid the infected, but can also heal their teammate is they drive close enough without getting caught. The best teams will get better rewards, which should encourage teams to communicate and play smart.

Microsoft also unveiled two new bundles that include the game. First off was a $299 Xbox One S bundle that comes with Forza Horizon 4, 1TB of storage, two weeks of Xbox Live Gold, and one month of Xbox Game Pass. There will also be a 1TB Xbox One X bundle that includes everything the previous bundle had, plus Forza Motorsport 7. Both of these bundles will be available at Forza Horizon 4 launches on October 2.

You can check out the new trailer below. Forza Horizon 4 will launch on PC and Xbox One on October 2, and you can pre-order it on Amazon.
