Earlier this week we had the opportunity to sit down with Ben Penrose, who is the Art Director for Forza Horizon 3.
When asked about how Australian culture is represented outside of the key locations and Australian vehicles, Penrose spoke a lot about how the sound is important to the authentic Australian experience.
“Obviously music is a big big one, we wanted to offer people the ability to drive to the music they love by expanding the radio stations and one of those stations is 100% dedicated to Australian music.” Penrose said.
Thankfully, Penrose also spoke about Turn 10 opting to use real Australian voice actors, which is always a good idea over having to painstakingly sit through voice actors trying to over impersonate the Australian accent.
“We also employed real Australian voice actors for the game so you’ll definitely hear a few voice actors in the game that are Australian.” Penrose said.
The music featured on the station hasn’t been clearly defined, but lets hope for some classic Aussie rock, which would perfectly match screaming down the Great Ocean Road.
