Best Driving Games to Play During Lockdown.

It’s been over a month since the nationwide lockdown measures were put in place. You’ve managed to do well so far, but, we understand you miss the open roads just like us. So, instead of finding reasons to leave your house, you can experience the open roads virtually from the comfort of your living room. We’re bringing you five of the best console driving games that you can play during the lockdown.

Forza Horizon 4

The UK is not exactly famous for its wonderful roads, but there are no two-hour traffic jams on the M25 or dispiriting stretches of the North Circular in Forza Horizon 4’s Britain.
This is a game about the experience of driving rather than the mechanics, and Forza Horizon 4 accommodates the tourists as well as the gearheads. You can barrel through low walls and shrubbery without so much as scratching your paintwork, slide all over the road in a Ferrari in the rain, or drive an Range Rover SVR up a mountain with only a little difficulty.
As the seasons change, so does the climate and amount of light, along with changes in driving conditions. You’ll also enjoy new selections of showcase racing events and limited-edition vehicles. It offers a near-limitless number of ways to race cars around, for as long as you want to spend in its sumptuous scenery.

Work your way up from F2 to the big leagues, battling the likes of Lewis Hamilton. Select your team, upgrade your car, create rivalries and win the world championship for yourself and the team
Visually, F1 2019 is a market-leader. The tracks are a thing of beauty, while the weather generator is all the more realistic with water splashing off the chassis and visibility almost non-existent when following in another car’s spray.
