Q: Do I get the Steam version for free, if I already own it elsewhere?

A: Yes. Forza Horizon 4 requires the Windows 10 operating system.
Q: Do I need an Xbox Live account to play?
A: Yes! You’ll be asked to sign in to Xbox Live the first time you install and launch Forza Horizon 4 from the Steam client. Additionally, creating an Xbox Live account is free, and does not require an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Q: If I already play Forza Horizon 4 on another platform, will my game progress carry over to Steam if I buy the Steam version?
A: Your save file on Steam is completely unique and separate from any pre-existing save file that’s associated with your Xbox Live gamertag, due to technical limitations. However, there are a few exceptions:
- Leaderboards are one per gamertag. May the best profile win.
- Clubs are one per gamertag. Join once, play anywhere.

A: All of the DLC available in the Microsoft Store will be available on Steam.
