Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience is available now

Interactive map of Horizon’s game world

Are you lucky enough to own both Forza Horizon and Windows 8? What are you? Rich? Well, Mr./Mrs. Baller, you’re now able to download the free Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience for Windows 8 PCs.

This works as an interactive map of Horizon‘s in-game world, which is set in Colorado. Pinch and zoom anywhere on the map to set waypoints. Once set in Windows 8, directions are then sent to the Xbox 360 game for the player to follow. Neat!

The interactive map also lets players find special items and events. A set of filters lets the player drill down to race types with swipes of the finger.

Microsoft says that the Forza Horizon SmartGlass Experience will be coming to other platforms soon.
