Forza Horizon 4 on PC

So just picked up my g29 and was wondering whats the best way of getting forza 4 on PC? I see you need to get the xbox copy but then wondering if i need to pay for xbox live or whatever to play it on pc too.



  • All you need to do is confirm that it is a "Play Anywhere" copy, buy a digital copy (windows store or cd key/game key) instead of the physical copy of the game.

    Source: Forza Horizon 3 (digital), RE7 (digital) and my ReCore (physical - not PC playable) bought via discounted groupon deal in 2016 which included gift cards luckily.

  • You don't need xbox live gold to play multiplayer on pc. You can get the game from the windows store and it's avaliable from cdkey as well. Physical copies are only for xbox one.

    It's also a part of xbox game pass, so you can get that if you think the price is too steep.
    Though there's barely any titles with the pass.

    Just buy gamepass ($1 for 3 months currently), although they decided to not officially market it for Windows any play anywhere titles on gamepass 'just work'. I have a separate login for xbox to other Microsoft services. After logging into the windows Xbox app, the play anywhere titles (Forzas, Halo Wars, Crackdown, Sea of Thieves, State of Decay etc.) all become available in the Windows App Store.

  • Hey, not sure if you want to hear this but I've heard you're better off playing Forza with a controller. Wheel just doesn't feel right. Some other games that are supposed to be good with a wheel are Dirt Rally, Assetto Corsa and Project Cars.

  • i would not recommend playing that game with the wheel, it doesn't feel right, because it's too much of an arcade racer. Try dirt rally 2, assetto corsa, project cars 2
