Microsoft and Turn 10 want you to get fast and furious in Forza Horizon 2 for free (Update)
A new stand-alone DLC pack is coming and it won’t cost you a penny (for a limited time)
(3/27/15) Update: Available now!
According to a report from the Associated Press, Microsoft, Turn 10 and Universal Pictures have teamed up to bring a stand-alone Fast & Furious game to Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
The game is built in the Forza Horizon 2 engine but does not require players to own the Forza Horizon 2 game in order to play. “Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious” is set to release on March 27 for both consoles and will remain free until April 10. Starting April 11, the expansion will cost $10.
GameSpot points out that the game will include several classic vehicles from the series as well as challenges that will be posed to the player by rapper, actor and series cast member Ludacris.
“The game will include such ‘Furious 7’ rides as a 1998 Toyota Supra, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, 2012 Nissan GT-R, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, 2013 Jeep Wrangler, 2014 Maserati Ghibli S and 2015 Dodge Charger,” said the article by the Associated Press.
The game will be based on events set before the first movie and players will be tasked with collecting cars in France for mechanic Tej Parker, played by Ludacris in the movies.
“It’s kind of been a grand experiment,” said Turn 10 studio head Alan Hartman, as quoted by the AP. “I hope what we’re doing here is a model for what we do in the future. It’s been a great relationship, and I don’t want to end it after this, so we’ll see what’s possible in the future.”
