Update, May 6 2020 (3:17AM ET): Microsoft announced last month that Forza Street would be coming to Android (see the original article below), and the game has finally been launched on the platform.
Forza Street is a streamlined take on the racing formula, as players follow on-screen instructions to brake, accelerate, use nitro boosts, and more. The game also supports cross-save functionality with the PC version, allowing you to carry your progress and garage across platforms. You can download the game via the button below.
Original article, April 8 2020 (4:22AM ET): Microsoft announced earlier this year that Forza Street would be coming to Android, marking the first time the series has landed on smartphones.
Now, the Redmond company has announced a release date, noting that Forza Street is coming to Android and iOS on May 5. The company also confirmed that everyone who plays the game between May 5 and June 5 will receive a so-called Founderâ€™s Pack.
The Founderâ€™s Pack includes the 2017 Ford GT, as well as in-game credits and gold. Hopefully the game doesnâ€™t emphasize the latter aspects too much, as weâ€™ve seen in other mobile racing games.
Microsoft also confirmed that Forza Street supports Xbox Live sign-in as well as cross-save functionality of sorts. The latter feature will allow you to bring your car collection from the PC version of the game, which is already out now.
Donâ€™t expect the full Forza experience here though, as Forza Street seems to be more of a quick-time event experience than a racing game like its predecessors. It seems like players arenâ€™t actually in control of their car beyond following on-screen instructions to brake, accelerate, pull away, and use nitro boosts.
In other words, people expecting a traditional racing game on Android will definitely be disappointed. Nevertheless, you can pre-register for Forza Street on the Play Store via the button below ahead of its release date.
