As we mentioned earlier today, in our video covering the Forza Horizon launch event, Playground Game, Turn 10 Studios and Microsoft Studios, thanks to a push from Xbox Canada, acknowledged the existence, and importance, of the Canadian market (and, yes, specifically Toronto) with a new promotional video for Forza Horizon filmed right on the streets of downtown Toronto.  In preparation for the game’s upcoming launch, Xbox Canada took a 2012 Aston Martin Vantage and Mercedes SLS AMG, both fitted with “Player 1” and “Player 2” signs, out for a spin around the downtown core, and stopped for some photo opportunities along the way.

In the video, you may notice a variety of Toronto landmarks, including Exhibition Place and Dundas Square, if you are familiar with our fair city. The video did officially release yesterday but, as you might understand, we wanted to wait to post it until after this week’s video online, since we had already planned on mentioning it before we started filming. With that, enjoy. Forza Horizon is set to release next week.
