Playground Games, who worked with Turn 10 Studios on the upcoming Forza instalment revealed to GamerZines that the game would be shipping on one disc- without the need for a install.
“It’s a one-disc game,” explained Playground Games’ Ralph Fulton.
“That’s something we’ve always had front and centre. We wanted it to be a one-disc title and a different experience and fulfil different things.”
This may come as a surprise to Forza fans. Both Forza Motorsport 3 and 4 shipped on two discs, one required to install the game’s wealth of automobiles.
Fulton explained that part of this is down to Forza Horizon’s selection of cars.
“Some of the F-class cars and E-class cars from Forza Motorsport 4, they’re not the sorts of cars you’d take to the Forza Horizon festival to show off so they went,” said Fulton.
“Some of the track racing cars, again, don’t make a lot of sense in the open road.”
“We were able to refine our vision in that sense but also, because of the nature of Horizon, we were able to broaden the others. Suddenly a Rally Car doesn’t make a huge amount of sense racing around Silverstone but in Colorado where I can drive where I want, where I have more choice in the type of roads, those cars make more sense than ever have done before.”
