Forza Horizon 3 Demo - Xbox one
This is a heads up for anyone that's interested in Forza. I didn't know a demo was going to be available.

Just browsing the Xbox store and saw that a demo is going to be available to download on the 12th September 2016.

Happy Days!!

Demo also coming to Windows store for PC

Awesome! Thanks for sharing

Brilliant! Thanks! Forza themselves will probably reveal it tomorrow in their week in review article

pre ordered the game already but heard the demo is a good taste of what's to come, limited tasks but open map so you can have a good drive if it's the same demo they tried to break but couldnt shown on youtube. roll on the 27th

awesome timing, I'm back from holiday in the morning.

I have all day of tmrow with nothing to do!

​if you not got overwatch that's on free play this weekend

Since this will be one of the first cross platform - Xbox One and PC titles - any idea if the demo will also be coming to PC / Windows Store?

EDIT - bit of searching and found the answer - YES
In case you like driving games, we suggest you download and install the Forza Horizon 3 Free Demo that will be found on both the Xbox Store and Windows Store starting from September 10, 2016. This way, you will be able to test the game, form an opinion and decide if you want to purchase it or not.
Inconsistency of dates in article - possibly it appears in the store earlier, but only playable from 12th?

Yes the 360 version is the old game engine, but xbox one version is the new game engine - looks much better. If you have an xbox one then get the xbox one version.

Yeah looking forward to the third iteration, better clear some hard drive space it's a massive 18.34GB demo!!!!

I'm a bit of a Sony fanboy but this game is the reason I've ordered the xb1 slim. Love the forza series, horizon is 1 and 2 were superb.

I wonder if they will have the small section opened up again like previous demos! I just hope it isn't the same races we have been seeing in every single gameplay demo

Hope it's a good port on PC

​360 version? What 360 version?

On Windows Store if you type Forza Horizon 3 into the search box top right it shows two listings - Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Horizon 3 Car Pass.

FH3 currently goes to a "oops not found" page - despite having the logo for the game in the search
The Car Pass page loads correctly, but not yet available to buy.

Hopefully a timing thing and they will be working later once whatever US time zone decides to make them live.

Looking forward to giving this a try

Demo is out tonight.

8pm.

9:40PM and not up on Windows store yet - still page not available, only visible in search - is it available for Xbox One now?

If it goes live tonight, I think I'm going to be a bit tired for work tomorrow

Checking on Twitter it looks like it will be available at 5PM UK time. Fingers crossed.

glad I didn't stay up waiting! Still nothing in the Windows store, but looks like Xbox One users can grab it now

"A Windows 10 PC demo for #ForzaHorizon3 will be released sometime after launch."

well that's certainly a disappointment - no way to try before launch, or gamble that if Apex runs well that FH3 will do too?
