It’s the day many of us have been waiting for as we can all finally get our first taste of Forza Motorsport 4 with the demo now available for download via Xbox Live.
It’s a 1.27GB download, featuring the Bernese Alps course with five cars; the 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia, the 2012 BMW M5, the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI, the 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator and the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque.
The demo supports official leaderboards for lap times and showcase the all-new Rivals Mode that will let players compete online against their friends in a variety of game types, whether they’re online or not, by challenging them for bragging rights and rewards. The Forza Motorsport 4 demo will feature three Rivals Mode events:
- Round the Mountain – In this hot-lapping challenge, you’ll race your rival in one of the world’s ultimate road cars, the Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, through the breathtaking vistas of the Brunnen Lauterbraunen ribbon
- BMW Blitz – Put your driving skills to the test in the powerful, sharp-handling 2012 BMW M5 as you weave through slower traffic along the slowing Stadtplatz Circuit
- Alpine Rush – In this Track Day Rivals event, you’ll battle slower traffic as you navigate the sweeping turns of the Bernese Alps Club Circuit
In less exciting news, a range of Forza Motorsport 4 avatar items are also now available, should you wish to display your support of the game online in the build-up to the October 14th release date in the UK. We’ll be back with our first impressions from the demo in a bit…
