Forza Horizon, more than the excellent-but-far-more-serious Forza Motorsport, has always elicited pure joy. Each Forza Horizon entry is like a 72-degree summer day, complete with a gentle breeze, in video game form.

The third Horizon brought us one of the greatest uses of a license ever in the form of its Hot Wheels add-on, and now Forza Horizon 4 looks to up the ante by giving us LEGO Speed Champions. The quirky and irresistibly charming LEGO movie-licensed games are made by British studio Traveller’s Tales, so perhaps it’s no surprise that Horizon 4’s LEGO Speed Champions, developed by fellow Brits Playground Games, shares the same sense of humor.
