Forza Horizon 2 E3 Screen 1

Playground Games and Microsoft's upcoming addition to the Forza series shows off its stunning visuals in a new trailer.

In anticipation of Forza Horizon 2's release at the end of the month, the devs have uploaded a rather gorgeous new launch trailer to whet your appetite.

The game takes place during the fictional 'Horizon Festival' in southern Europe, and will see players tearing around the roads of southern France and northern Italy.

The trailer shows off the stunning environments to great effect, giving us a glimpse at the on-road and off-road racing action, the dynamic weather effects, and of course those ever-important cars. All the footage is in-game from the Xbox One and it looks beautiful.

Forza Horizon 2 is due for release on 30th September exclusively for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
