"Forza Horizon" will be a "celebration of car culture," a new developer diary from Turn 10 Studios says.

The Forza Horizon team is all about painstaking attention to nitty-gritty detail, as shown in the first of a series of video diaries from developer Turn 10 Studios.

Forza Horizon will be a "celebration of car culture," community manager Brian Ekberg says in the video below. The game features the Horizon Festival, a gathering for people to display and race their favorite cars – an event reminiscent of today's classic car shows popular in central New England, but without the racing component.

There are no restrictions in Forza Horizon. Players can cut corners, weave through traffic, and speed through "miles and miles of dirt roads" in this open-world racer. The video also offers a glimpse at the game's day and night cycle, images of cars chasing halogen lights through an almost ink-black environment.

Turn 10 also announced a new batch of cars have been added to the game:

  • 2005 Ford GT
  • 2006 Lotus Exige Cup
  • 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG
  • 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432
  • 2011 Lotus Evora S
  • 2010 SSC Ultimate Aero
  • 2013 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500
  • 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
  • 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird
  • 2010 Nissan 370 Z
  • 2003 Honda S2000
  • 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X
  • 2010 Pagani Zonda R

Forza Horizon is coming exclusively to Xbox 360 on October 23rd.
