Microsoft is bringing Forza Horizon 4 to Steam on March 9th. It marks the first time the Forza franchise has been available on Steam, and it will include crossplay with players on Xbox consoles, the regular Windows 10 version, and those streaming Forza Horizon 4 through xCloud.
Playground Games has been gradually improving Forza Horizon 4 with expansions and a battle royale-like mode. A Halo driving experience even appeared in the game a few years ago, and the Lego Speed Champions expansion includes brick cars and scenery. A new Hot Wheels car pack is also coming soon, which will include a number of new cars for $10.
Microsoft’s Forza embrace of Steam comes after the company reversed course nearly three years ago, promising to distribute more Xbox titles through Steam. Halo: The Master Chief Collection arrived on Steam in 2019, followed by Sea of Thieves last year. Alongside Microsoft Flight Simulator, all three titles are now regularly found in the top sellers list on Steam.
