Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios today announced the release of the Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience, a free download for Windows 8 PCs.
The app works as an interactive map of Colorado from the game. Using familiar navigation gestures like pinch to zoom, players can explore the interactive map and set waypoints simply by tapping the desired location on the screen. Once a destination is chosen, that waypoint is automatically set in the game and new route directions are presented to the player.
In addition, as with the in-game map, the app includes locations of special items such as smashable upgrade discount signs, new race events, and more. Through a set of filters, players will be able to quickly find exactly the event or item they are looking for with just a few swipes of their fingers.
