Forza Street available now on PC

Forza has gone all free-to-play on us with the release of Forza Street, which is available right now on PC and other Windows 10 devices via the Microsoft store.

The game, which will also be coming to iOS and Android devices later this year, has been “designed for racing on the go with streamlined controls that focus on timing of gas, brake, and boost as the keys to victory”. While it is said that “skill and strategy are the keys to the finish line”, I can confirm that steering is not, as the game really is all about the correct timing of gas, brakes, and boost, with no steering involved.

While the game isn’t going to give you the ultra-realistic driving simulation of Forza Motorsport (I mean, how can it if you don’t even have to steer?) or the open-world freedom of Forza Horizon, it will still offer plenty of legendary cars to collect, including classic muscle cars, modern sports cars, and retro supercars. You’ll be able to take part in either “quick one-minute races” or “get immersed in an epic story with multiple paths to victory”. It’s pretty clear that Forza Street has been designed as a quick, pick-up-and-play option, so please don’t expect to be blown away.

More features will be coming to the game in the future, with developers Electric Square promising to “actively engage with and listen to our community to make Forza Street the game our fans will want to take with them everywhere”.

Forza Street is available to download now.
