Microsoft has released a Forza Horizon SmartGlass add-on for Windows 8 PCs.
The free download, which will support additional platforms "soon", allows users to extend their racing experience by acting as an interactive map of Colorado, the game's open-world setting.Players can explore the map and set waypoints that are then added in-game along with new route directions. The map also includes the locations of special items such as smashable upgrade discount signs and new race events.
Microsoft launched Xbox SmartGlass last week. It's a companion application that connects with Xbox 360 to allow more interactive entertainment by enabling mobile devices to potentially serve as second screens and remote controls.
