Forza Horizon 4 is now available on Steam

The Forza franchise has finally made it to Steam, with Microsoft launching Forza Horizon 4 onto Valve’s PC platform. Now, Steam fans can enjoy Forza Horizon 4 without needing to use the Microsoft Store, the Xbox PC app or Xbox Game Pass. 

This comes as part of Microsoft’s efforts to open up its Xbox brand to a wider market, allowing more gamers to access their content outside of the traditional Xbox console ecosystem. Today, the Xbox brand encompasses consoles, cloud gaming and PC gaming, offering all of these above under their Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service. 

Sadly, Forza Horizon 4 has launched on Steam at its full retail price, with Microsoft offering Steam users no discount on their top Xbox racing title. For the base game, Forza Horizon 4 currently costs £54.99 on Steam, with the Ultimate Edition costing £84.99. While discounts will likely be available when Valve’s next Steam sale hits, it is disappointing that Steam users are being forced to pay so much for a game from 2018. 

Even now, Forza Horizon 4 stands as one of PC’s top racing titles, offering gamers stellar visuals, excellent optimisation and a wide range of control options. On the latest PC hardware, 4K 120Hz framerates are possible, making this Xbox racer ideal for fans of high refresh rate PC action. 

All of Forza Horizon 4’s DLC packs are available on Steam, such ad the game’s Hot Wheels car pack and the title’s LEGO-themed expansion. Moving forward, Microsoft plans to release all of their future first-party titles on Steam, giving PC gamers options outside of the Microsoft Store and their Xbox Game Pass subscription.
