Forza Horizon 3 is getting a Hot Wheels expansion. The expansion will take the players off the coast of Australia to take part in some stunt driving over the tracks spanning six different islands.
Xbox One and Windows 10 will receive the exclusive Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels expansion on 09 May. The expansion is, as always, included in the expansion pass . The expansion will introduce "giant iconic orange Hot Wheels tracks" in Australia "a place where lazy Sunday drives are replaced by insane high-speed stunts on miles of looping".
Some of the most famous Hot Wheels cars such as the Twin Mill, the Rip Rod, and the Bone Shaker are set to make an appearance. There will be a livestream of the "Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels experience" on 08 May.
The expansion will bring six new islands off the coast of Australia. The islands will be connected by a network of Hot Wheels tracks suspended hundreds of feet in the air. The tracks will feature classic Hot Wheels configurations like loops, corkscrews, and more. There will be a new Stunt Swap feature that will enable you to modify parts of the track.
Ten new cars will be added to the game to let you fully take advantage of the tracks. Some of them are:
1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill
When it comes to Hot Wheels, there is nothing more iconic that the over-the-top Twin Mill. The car was designed by Ira Gilford.
2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker
Designed by “Mr. Hot Wheels” designer Larry Wood, the Bone Shaker is one of a handful of Hot Wheels deemed popular enough to warrant the creation of a real-life version.
2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
To celebrate 50 years of the iconic Ford pony car, Hot Wheels and specialty-builder Action Vehicle Engineering started with a 2005 Mustang and created this beautiful custom model.
2016 Zenvo ST1
When you only produce about one car per year and the interior alone can take up to 8,000 hours – that’s 333 days – it’s ok to expect perfection. Zenvo, Denmark’s super car maker, does just that with an attention to detail you should also expect for a car that costs more than $1.5 million.
1972 Chrysler VH Valiant Charger R/T E49
When Australian Minister of Transport Milton Morris called the E49 and its competition “bullets on wheels,” it was the death knell for the muscle cars from down under. Fortunately, the VH Valiant Charger in the E49 configuration was already out and all 149 of them sold like hot cakes.
In addition to the expansion, 09 May will see an update roll out for Forza Horizon 3, and Windows 10 players are going to see some "significant improvements".
The expansion will be available as a standalone purchase for £15.
