Our videos of Forza Horizon 3

After BlimBlim's coverage of the preview build of Forza Horizon 3, it is time for you to discover the final version in action. Since the game is now available in most countries, we have decided to share our direct feed footage with no commentary to do real justice to Playground Games' work. The following videos were recorded on our original Xbox One and on our i7 6700k equipped with a GTX 1080. They will take you on an aerial stroll through the wilderness of Australia, but also features a few races (including 2 tracks raced in radically different cars). As you'll see, driving off-road with a super car is definitely tricky when all assists are off.
Update: 2 PC videos added.

Forza Horizon 3 with proper drivers

The promise of new drivers is always something to hold on to when a game does not perform as well as it should, and the release this afternoon of Nvidia's latest ones has proved us right. While we were experiencing quite severe stuttering issues this morning, even at 1080p, our time on the game with the new drivers has been 99% smooth with DSR 1440p. The (minor) drops are now really rare, and they have no negative impact on the experience. We can now say we are relieved for all those who are eargerly waiting for the PC version to unlock on Friday (Ultimate Edition only obviously). If you need proof, simply check out the video inside.
Note: Let us remind everyone that 60 fps racing games don't look very good in streamed videos, even when using our stream, which is way better than YouTube. That's why we advise you to take the time to download the file.

Forza Horizon 3 on PC - DSR4K/60fps

We have finally been able to download and play the PC version of Forza Horizon 3, and here is the result of our session with the game running on ultra settings at 4K (thanks to Nvidia's DSR). It is important to stress that the following commented video was recorded this morning, and that the latest Nvidia drivers were not available. The warning message from the game saying that our PC was not up-to-date might explain the slowdowns we have seen at 1080p. In the following video, you'll also see a few drops, but it's not too bad considering the resolution. Pop-in remains a bit of an issue too on PC, especially in the forest, as shown in the last part of our footage. We doubt 4k will run at a steady 60 fps frame-rate after installing the drivers, but they should definitely help improve the overall experience. Enjoy the video!

GSY LIVE | PC, Xbox One Tuesday, September 20, 2016 | 11:40 PM
Join us in Australia tonight

On friday, those who purchased the ultimate edition of Forza Horizon 3 will finally be able to play the game a few days before the others. Because we were authorized to start playing before you guys, we will be live tonight at 8:45 CEST for about 45 minutes. If there is anything you want to see or ask, be there on time.
Update: Replays are up. Remember that we haven't been able to play much since Saturday, so we don't have all the answers. Aside from the little info we gave on the game's content, you can enjoy the good IQ of the livestream.

Preview: Forza Horizon 3

We've been invited to a preview event for Forza Horizon 3 a few days ago, where we got to play the game for 90 minutes on Xbox One (S). Microsoft had allowed us to use our own recording hardware to capture some footage of the game, so it's with great pleasure we now release all these very high quality videos of the game. As for our impressions, to quote our own great philosopher Miguel: "Hu, It's a Forza Horizon game". So if you know the series needless to say you will feel right at home, and the choice of Australia as the new playground certainly seems like a quite good idea!

The week to come is going to be a busy one on Gamersyde, so we figured it would be nice to let you know exactly what is coming in the next few days. Our game coverage should be interesting and varied, so if you want to find out more, follow us inside.

GC: Back to the Forza Horizon 3

I'm sure you'll get something of a "déjà vu" sensation when watching this video of Forza Horizon 3. Almost like you'd already seen this exact same demo at least 3 times before. Well, since Miguel is a huge fanboy of the series he found another pretext to go back and play it again, this time it was all about "showing different camera views". As if.

GC: Forza Horizon 3 direct feed videos

Gamescom will officially open for the press tomorrow but Microsoft invited us on their booth for a few hours today. Miguel brought you back some footage, starting with some direct feed videos of the Xbox One version of Forza Horizon 3. Note that we recorded everything with our own equipment to make sure the quality was the best. Too bad the demo was identical to the one showed at E3.
