Microsoft revealed new social features for Forza Horizon 2 during its Gamescom press conference this morning.
Even when playing single-player, you’ll see your friends’ Drivatars driving around the world. Using synchronous Rivals challenges, you can race them without them even being online.
When jumping into multiplayer, the transition is “seamless,” according to Playground Games, as the game is without online lobbies or any waiting elements.
Players will be able to create Clubs with up to 1,000 members. Custom liveries also return. Players can head into Online Car Meets to show off their car and look at other drivers’ cars. You can also share your custom liveries for other players to download.
Online Road Trips will allow players to see the sights while exploring the open world. Once you reach your destination, your group can together decide where to go next. Online Free Roam, on the other hand, lets players branch off on their own.
