From the company that brought us the legendary Forza Motorsport
line of games, comes the new, go anywhere Forza Horizon
. The game bases the action in simulated real-world environments that are so vast you need an in-game GPS to keep track of where you’re going.
The company behind it is Turn 10 Studios, which has teamed up with Top Gear
, the magazine, not the actual television show, to develop a new download pack with six new cars.
The six cars are quite diverse and include an Aston Martin Vanquish, Bowler EXR S, Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR AMG, Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale Zagato, Ford Transit SuperSportVan and an E46 BMW M3 GTR. Our pick would have to be the Alfa TZ3
, since it looks so darn good and is riding on the bones of a Dodge Viper.
The cars are available for 240 MS points each, except the M3, which is available free. Or you can order the whole pack for 400 points or about $5. The release coincides with new Community Rivals Mode events in the game as well.
is designed for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console and was released in October, 2012. It costs $59.99 on its own.
Note, if you prefer your racing sims to stay on the track, Turn 10 is working on a new Forza Motorsport 5
that’s said to take video game quality to a whole new level.
