Forza Motorsport 4 is the latest installment in Turn 10 Studios' racing franchise, Forza Motorsport, and builds on improvements made in Forza Motorsport 3. The game features over 80 car manufacturers and +500 cars that you'll be able to drive in the game's single player World Tour mode or online during races that can support 16 players (which is twice the amount of the first three games). The game also features Kinect compatibility as well as the Top Gear license and some wacky new events such as car soccer and car bowling.
The new singleplayer mode is called
World Tour. World Tour mode takes you to different locations. At each location a choice must be made for which event you want to participate in, much like the Season Play mode in Forza 3. These events will feature different racing modes, car classes and number of cars.
When you reach a new level you can now choose from multiple cars instead of only a single car. This brings more variation to the campaign as it depends on your garage to choose your next event just like in the previous game. Turn 10 has further expanded this feature by integrating their DLC to appear as options in the gift menu when you download it.
Multiplayer Car Clubs
Players can create car clubs and let friends join their club. The car club features a shared garage where players can share their cars (including upgrades, paint jobs and tuning setups) with the members of the car club. The most dedicated clubs often use these shared garages to help perfect tuning setups across several drivers, so that they can be used to set times for in-game leaderboards. Some clubs may also choose to share their unicorn cars amongst themselves, for drivers who may not have them.
Badges and Titles
Much like in games such as Call of Duty, Forza lets you customize your online profile with badges and titles (mottos that go with your online profile). There are 400 different kinds of badges and both titles and badges are unlocked through career progression, driver affinity and by performing certain actions. Unlocking these titles can take some time, and some are extremely specific. For example, one of the badges challenges players to drive 1000 miles in a Ford Mustang.
Rival mode has the player challenge other players in different events to try and beat their times. There are 6 possible events: Community Monthly which groups all 5 other events and imposes special conditions such as no driver assist, Top Gear which are events designed by the Top Gear staff which usually stick with the theme of the show, Spec Hot Laps which is a time trial event where players are assigned one car and a track, Open Time Attack where players can choose their car, tune it and pin it against other player's times, Track Days which requires players to race around a track filled with slow moving cars (the main objective still being to get the best time, not to beat the slower cars), Autocross which requires players to go through gates to complete a lap and Drift where players drift around a track and are rewarded points. Events change every month.
Players can pick a rival or from their friends list or from the online leaderboards. By beating their rival, the player is awarded xp and credits. It is possible to unlock everything in the game by just playing rival mode. Players face their rival's ghost and attempt to beat their time. The higher the rival is on the leaderboards, the more credits and xp the player will earn. If the rival is on the player's friends list, the player will be notified if they are beaten.
Car Affinity is Forza 4's leveling system. Players do not level cars anymore, instead they level manufacturers. By being loyal to a manufacturer, the player earns xp by driving a manufacturer's car for a certain amount of miles which count towards the player's affinity level. XP leads to store discounts which can lead to certain parts becoming completely free and new titles and badges. When the game released, the level cap was set at 150 and developers expected that less than 1% of the player base would reach the cap within 24 months of the release. After hardcore fans were able to reach the cap in 4 months, though, the level cap was raised to 999 in a title update.

At PAX Prime 2011, 343 Industries and Turn 10 announced the addition of the famous vehicle from the Halo series, the Warthog. Just like any other car in Auto Vista, players are able to completely interact with it and view points of interest. However, it is not drivable. In addition to Jeremy Clarkson commenting on the Warthog's fake statistics, Jen Taylor, the voice of Cortana, lends her talents to give an overview of the vehicle to players and talk about it's history. The model for the Warthog was provided to Turn 10 by 343 Industries, and it is the same model that appears in Halo 4.
The first track revealed for the game is known as
The Bernese Alps, located in Switzerland. It is a fictional track based on a real location. A backstory has been created for this track in Forza Motorsport 4 to create authenticity for it's existence.

Full Circuit East Circuit West Circuit Super Speedway Kinect Kinect Integration
The game uses Kinect for both in game and for menu navigation.
Hyperlinks - Forza is known for a rather deep menu structure which is where Kinect hyperlinks come in: the user can, from anywhere in the menu such as quick race, jump to a specific screen by voice commands such as "Xbox, Auction House". Steering - Basically, it's driving with an air wheel. This can be done with two players simultaneously, and is largely intended for a more casual experience. Throttle and brakes are both managed by the game. Head tracking - With head tracking a player can look around in the cockpit mode just by moving his head. This makes it possible to look into a corner or glance into a rear view mirror. The sensitivity of this feature can be adjusted by the player. Autovista
Autovista allows the player to walk around cars and view them in more detail using both the regular Xbox 360 controller and Kinect. The doors and lids of the car can be opened and the player can get into car to take a closer look at the interior or to start the car and listen to the engine. More information about specific features of the car are available in textual and audio format. For example, by selecting a part of the car such as the hood, the hood will open to reveal the engine and facts about it. Not all cars featured in the game are available in this mode.
Partnerships Top Gear
Top Gear has been seamlessly integrated into Forza 4. Top Gear is in the single player as well as in the multiplayer. The test track from the popular television show is in the game, and there is also an option to use the Top Gear studio as a menu background. Where the Top Gear license really comes to life however is in AutoVista. Here, each car is presented by Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson. He first says the name of the car before delving into further detail. Clarkson wrote what he wanted to say about each car in the game before recording the dialogue that is completely unedited, leading to things such as Clarkson talking about how McLaren makes weaker cars than Bugatti.
American Le Mans
For this installment of Forza Motorsport Turn 10 partnered with the American Le Mans series to bring new cars and tracks to the game. The partnership will bring 26 cars and Sebring, Road Atlanta, Road America, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca as tracks. Players will also be able to participate in community events inspired upon the American Le Mans series and watch the actual race events on ESPN3 on their Xbox.
