Forza 4, Microsoft's answer to Gran Turismo, is set to include the Warthog from Halo in what must be the Xbox fanboy's dream cross-game mashup.

Wired picked up on the Easter egg which will appear somewhere hidden in the yet to be released racing game before Microsoft confirmed the details ahead of Halo Fest in Seattle. Set to arrive on 14 October in the UK, Forza 4 will feature an in-depth look at the design process behind the new Warthog in Halo 4.

It gets better: you will be able to use the in-game autovista mode to explore the vehicle using Kinect, whilst being told about various elements by none other than Halo's Cortana herself. 

Get ready to be seriously shot down, however, as we imagine you guess what is coming.. No you won't be able to drive the Warthog in Forza 4.

Shame really, we quite like the idea of driving over the top of a Ferrari in Masterchief's finest.

“Forza Motorsport 4” releases in the UK on 14 October.
