Who would have thought one of the coolest DLC updates for a car game would be this? Microsoft has announced that next month, Hot Wheels are coming to Forza Horizon 3. And it looks completely bad ass.
Time to Get Loopy
When you watch the trailer, which we included below, you can see where the hype is coming from. The DLC throws Forza Horizon 3 vehicles, and some new Hot Wheels ones, into real life Hot Wheel inspired tracks. Orange and blue gorgeousness and all. Here is Microsoft’s breakdown of the mode:
“This expansion lets players travel to a brand-new location in Australia, a place where lazy Sunday drives are replaced by insane high-speed stunts on miles of looping, banking, giant iconic orange Hot Wheels tracks. Starring famous Hot Wheels vehicles like the Twin Mill, the Rip Rod, and the Bone Shaker, Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels promises an automotive adventure unlike anything in Forza history.”
The update will feature six new Hot Wheels inspired tracks. All said to be located off the coast of where else – Australia:
“Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels takes players to six new themed islands located off the coast of Australia; all connected by a network of Hot Wheels tracks – positioned hundreds of feet in the air – featuring classic Hot Wheels configurations like loops, corkscrews, and more. This is stunt driving at its most extreme, where you can master tracks by performing brand new Hot Wheels skills that make use of boost pads, high-bank turns, half-pipes, insane jumps, and even giant mechanical dinosaurs. If you’re looking to get creative, check out the new Stunt Swap feature to modify stunt track sections and dare your friends to try them.”
And finally, here’s a breakdown of the cars that are included in the Hot Wheel package:
