Microsoft releases its first free-to-play Forza game, Forza Street

Forza Street is a free-to-play racing game that follows a simplified approach in comparison to its console counterpart. Microsoft today officially announced Forza Street, a free-to-play racing game that's out now for Windows 10 users, but will expand to Android and iOS phones and tablets later this year. According to the Xbox Blog, it should roll out to iOS and Android “this year”. "Forza Street was designed for racing on the go with streamlined controls that focus on timing of gas, brake, and boost as the keys to victory", the official description reads. And while the free-to-play approach is something new in the Forza game series, the product in itself isn't entirely new. "With the game available today on Windows 10 devices, we will continue to add features and actively engage with and listen to our community to make Forza Street the game our fans will want to take with them everywhere", wrote Andy Beaudoin, Design Director, Forza Street.

Unlike previous Forza titles, Forza Street does not require you to steer your vehicle to victory. Forza Street seems built for short, quick races that you can get through while waiting in line at the grocery store or riding public transit to work.

Forza Street is actually a rebranding of Microsoft's Miami Street, and is aimed at those of us without high-end rigs-and therefore access to Forza 7. The install size is around 3.85GB.
