Forza Horizon 4 Is the Highest Rated Xbox Exclusive To-date

Forza Horizon 4 is a smash hit according to a new press release from Microsoft. Within its first week of being released, it has already garnered 2 million active players who have logged 4.6 million hours of gameplay so far. Microsoft also revealed that Forza Horizon 4 is the highest rated Xbox exclusive title to-date, which is based on Metacritic’s aggregate review score system.

I for one am not surprised by these feats, because I too have found the game to be quite exemplary. During my review period I couldn’t put it down, and feel that its open-world approach to a racing game, complete with other live players in the same world, is akin to Destiny, albeit with cars.

You can check out more stats from the game’s launch week below.

  • More than 4.6 million hours of Forza Horizon 4 gameplay have been watched across Mixer, Twitch, YouTube and Facebook as of Oct. 9***
  • Players have logged more than 822.7 million miles – that’s probably not covered under manufacturer warranty
  • The community has settled in quite nicely living the Horizon Life, purchasing more than 4.1 million properties and owning more than 74.4 million cars
  • More than 377.7 million roads discovered – you’ve been looking for miles and miles and miles…
