This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word ‘social’ too much

Social, connected, social, connected

Okay, maybe the snarky headline was a bit mean but the devs behind Forza Horizon 2 are really making sure that you know that the game is social and connected. Aside from those buzzwords, what does that actually mean in terms of how the game plays? Well, it seems like there’s a lot of options for asynchronous multiplayer sessions with your friends even if they’re offline. 

Joining and finding online games looks easier than before and you’ll be able to join private or public car clubs where you can organize your own events and show off your custom paint jobs. Along with Driveclub, Forza Horizon 2 is another gorgeous racing game that might have the multiplayer hooks that I’m looking for in a current-gen racing title.

Sorry, “social” hooks. That are “connected.”
