Forza Horizon Smartglass Experience Launches
Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios today announced the release of the official Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience, a free download for Windows 8 PCs that allows players to extend their racing experience.
The Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience works as an interactive map of Colorado. Using the Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience, players can instantly access the entire map of Colorado. Using familiar navigation gestures like pinch to zoom, players can explore the interactive map and set waypoints on the map simply by tapping the desired location on the screen. Once a destination is chosen, that waypoint is automatically set in the game and new route directions are presented to the player.
In addition, as with the in-game map, the Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience includes locations of special items such as smashable upgrade discount signs, new race events, and more. Through a set of filters, players will be able to quickly find exactly the event or item they are looking for with just a few swipes of their fingers.
