A PC Demo for Forza Horizon 4 is set to release later today 

Forza Horizon 4 is set to release on October 2nd on both PC and Xbox One, but before that day comes gamers on both platforms will be able to access a free demo for the game on the Microsoft Store and Xbox Live respectively. 

The Forza Horizon 4 demo has now been listed on the Microsoft Store with a September 12th release date, alongside a 27.83GB download size and the same PC system requirements as the final game. 

At this time it is unknown how much content will be contained within this free demo version, though it is expected to include several vehicles and race types.  

At Gamescom, Playground Games confirmed that Forza Horizon 4 would feature support for ultra-wide 21:9 resolutions on day-1, feature an adjustable FOV setting and offer graphical settings that are "beyond Ultra". This means that the PC version will be able to provide visuals that surpass the game's Xbox One X counterpart, allowing players to fully utilise the might of modern graphics hardware on the PC platform.

The game will require PC players to be using Windows 10 build 15063.0 or higher and have access to 8GB of system memory, though 12GB is recommended for higher graphical settings.
