Forza Horizon 4 Head to Head play without XBox Live Subscription

I am curious as to what options are available for head-to-head play on Forza Horizon 4, without having an XBox Live subscription.
I don’t care anything for an XBox Live account, but I want to play Forza Horizon 4 against my wife at home.

Is this possible? Over our home network? Or, is it possible to setup my own server in my house to facilitate the connection?

We have a single XBox One console and a kickin MSI Gaming PC. We have a good mesh LAN at the house. I would like to be able to use these two to compete. If I need to purchase the game twice, I dont mind doing that. But, I want to make sure it is possible to play head-to-head before I do.

Has anyone done this before?
Can you point me in the right direction?

No options on Horizon games, there’s no lan or split screen play enabled on them, they require the servers to be up to do any kind of multiplayer and that is via Live. You’d need 2 live accounts I believe.

As an aside you could try picking up a used copy of Forza Motorsports 6 or 7 or just buy them new, that has couch-based split screen multiplayer as an option…but thats track racing and not open world, no jumps, ramps, offroad, etc.

You will need 2 xbox one or 1 pc (top video card) you can try to install from the store (pre-requisites) and Windows 10 and 1 xbox one, or 2 pc, 2 microsoft gold live accounts, without being a family.

I’ve tried to play on xbox one with a family account, on xbox one and on PC different accounts didn’t work.

That way you will be able to play using the resource that exists in the game “train”, one has to be friends with the other in the game or follower, only available in online mode.

sorry about my English

not true
you can have 1 gold account and you can game share that as only needing 1 copy of the game digitally

but does need to be on different accounts on 2 different devices

i do it all the time
