Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have announced that the Forza Horizon Smartglass Experience is now available via a free download on Windows 8 PCs.
The Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience comes as an interactive map of Colorado which is the open-world environment that features in the game. Players can instantly access the entire map. By using gestures like pinch to zoom, players can explore the interactive map and set waypoints simply by tapping the desired location on the screen. Once a destination is chosen, that waypoint is automatically set in the game and new route directions are presented to the player.
In addition, the experience includes locations of special items such as smashable upgrade discount signs, new race events and more. Through a robust set of filters, players will be able to quickly find exactly the event or item they are looking for with just a few swipes of their fingers.
There is no need to pause the game either in order to access the map as the SmartGlass experience offers new players the chance to get familiar with their new surroundings and gives veterans an edge over the competition.
