In 2018, Playground Games released the Forza Horizon 4 video game, a mammoth racing adventure taking place in a fictional yet equally alluring Great Britain. That same year, Chevrolet was still hard at work putting on the finishing touches of what was to become the first mid-engine Corvette of its kind.
Ever since it came into the spotlight in 2019, people playing Forza have been dreaming of getting their hands on the bowtie machine in the virtual environment. In what must be the first major announcement for the game this year, we get confirmation that it will be so.

More to the point, the C8 Stingray is going into virtual racing starting January 14, complete with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, 495 horsepower on tap, and the unofficial title of most-powerful entry Corvette ever made.

“The mid-engine Corvette Stingray will be hitting the virtual streets in Forza Horizon 4, Jan. 14. This is your chance to grab the New Year by the wheel and see where it takes you,” the maker of the real-world Corvette says.

At the time of its launch, the game was perhaps equally as praised as the car itself. Microsoft, the publisher of the title, described it as a revolution, with gamers able to experience, “for the first time in the racing and driving genre, [...] dynamic seasons in a shared open-world.”

There are over 450 cars to be raced in the game, the most recent additions being the 2019 Zenvo TSR-S, 1970 Ford GT70, 1977 Ford Escort RS1800 Mk II, and 1985 Mazda RX-7.

The Corvette will be part of a new Series update, which will also include the 1990 Camaro IROC Z and the Honda S800. All three cars will be offered as prizes for various events over the next month, with the Corvette being the cherry on the Find New Roads championship cake.
