    I've played all the Horizon series including FH3 and both expansions so FH4 is on the cards. I felt burnt that FH3 "Ultimate" bundle didn't include the expansion packs and I swore I was going to look closer at the options this time around... but it does look like Ultimate does include them this time around. I know I will buy the expansions so Ultimate actually looks pretty good.

    As amazing as it was being set in aus and the cool aussie cars, the map has been the worst in horizon so far.. fh4 seems to redeem that though.

    Lacks detail, quite boring and very flat. Once you get over the cool comparisons to parts of Aus though.

    FH2 was highlight so far, stunning italian/french landscape.

    Hopefully the xbone version will be done when I get home, PC download will have to wait overnight ;)

    I think the download speed is inflated by 10 times. Mine was showing as downloading 12mb/second, but I've only got an ADSL2+ connection. Looking at the windows log, it was downloading ~1.2mb/second.

    Overall it'll download 28gig, but what it's showing as having actually downloaded is incorrect.

    Its showing Mbps AFAIK..

    Man does it run well.. 1440p ultra with dynamic scaling off = 120fps most the time and lowest I saw was 90..

    Going to be a great game.

    Well had a quick go at it, such a visually awesome looking game, the engine runs so damn well also. Locked to 75Hz for me (display refresh).

    Does it get past the xbox profile sync nightstalker? If not you might want to download and run the xbox app once to get that going, it might help ;)

    Anyway, I had a quick run on the xbonex and then just ran the benchmark on PC, seems to be built for spec for a 1080ti, max setting 4K60 all of the time with it sitting at 90% gpu most of the time.
