Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best racing games of the generation, with Playground Games outdoing itself in terms of the sheer amount of activities to complete and the awesome changing-seasons system. Right now, Amazon has the game for a Black Friday price of just $25, so you can save big before you take your favorite cars out to the English countryside.

The latest game in the Forza Horizon spin-off series, Forza Horizon 4 takes place entirely in England, with the country’s unique architecture, landscapes, and roads on full display. You have access to traditional street races, as well as off-road events, speeding challenges, and collectible-hunting.

There are hundreds of different cars to collect and race, including ridiculously fast hyper-cars, trucks, and sports cars, each with their own advantages and weaknesses. Racing with the 4K-capable Xbox One X makes Forza Horizon 4 even better, as it’s one of the most gorgeous games available from Microsoft and you can endlessly customize your vehicles for the perfect look. When the seasons change, you’ll even get access to new areas, such as a frozen lake that can only be crossed during the winter.

Forza Horizon 4 also supports Xbox One and PC cross-play, so your friends who own the game on PC will be able to play the full experience with you. You can choose to play with cooperative and drop-in competitive races turned on by default, or use the A.I.-powered “Drivatar” system that has been in the series since the start of the Xbox One generation. This system matches you up against computer-controlled racers who control and perform much like people on your friend list, letting you “race” them without actually having to sync up your schedules.

With an initial launch price of $60, Forza Horizon 4 is an absolute steal at $20. It’s the best racing game you can buy on any platform right now, and that includes the much newer Need for Speed: Heat, which would cost you a little bit more. During Cyber Monday, we also don’t expect the price to drop any more, so you should go ahead and purchase it now if you’re considering buying the game.

Some Black Friday deals are still lingering, and it can be easy to forget that Cyber Monday follows quickly after. The two sales days have started to become pretty much the same thing in recent years, though. All November long, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart sales have been competing with each other to see who can put out the most deals first. Black Friday 2019, in a nutshell, has become Black November. The same can be said for the following Monday, which has actually morphed into an entire Cyber Week of deals.

With almost two months of straight deals during the holiday season, it's not hard to find a discount. So the question really becomes: When should you do your shopping?

Save on a year of PlayStation Plus with Amazon’s Black Friday sale
sony playstation plus deal for amazon black friday 2019 nioh header

If you want to play your PlayStation 4 games online, you're going to need a PlayStation Plus subscription, and the new consoles only tend to come with a short trial certificate in the box. Luckily, Amazon is offering a $15 Black Friday discount on a yearly membership, and you can redeem it instantly using a digital code.

Typically $60, a PlayStation Plus yearly membership is $45 on Amazon right now. Even if you are set up with automatic renewal, it's a good idea to purchase the membership via the deal in order to extend your subscription without having your card automatically charged. PlayStation Plus is required for multiplayer in almost all PS4 games, save for a select few free-to-play titles, and is almost certainly going to be required for multiplayer on the PlayStation 5 when it launches next year.
