Playground Games has confirmed to Joystiq that Forza Horizon will feature a voice-controled Kinect GPS system.

The Kinect GPS system will allow players to find specific locations like the game’s Horizon Festival, as well as nearby races and events.

“We received two recurring feedback points while we were looking at this game,” explained Playground Games’ design director Ralph Fulton.

“The first one is really simple, people said ‘This world so big, I found it really easy to get lost.’ The second is kind of related to that, people said ‘Sometimes I forget where I’m going, or what I want to do next.'”

Forza Horizon launches on October 23 for Xbox 360.
