The second Forza Horizon 3 expansion – Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels – is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on May 9.
Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels adds a brand new Australian location to the game, as well as a miles of famous looping orange Hot Wheels tracks. The action takes place on six new themed islands which are connected by a network of Hot Wheels tracks. Expect all the old classic track arrangements such as loop-the-loops and corkscrews. The game’s new Stunt Swap feature will also allow players to modify stunt track sections to share with friends.
The new add-on features a string of famous Hot Wheels vehicles such as the Twin Mill, the Rip Rod, and the Bone Shaker.
It’s a welcome approach for a series that – even in its Horizon guise – has always offered a more straight-laced take on car racing. The new expansion looks like a lot of fun, and is perhaps the closest Xbox One owners can get to the knock about thrills offered by the likes of Mario Kart 8.
The Forza Horizon 3 team will take to Microsoft’s new Beam platform on May 8 to livestream DLC gameplay direct from the Hot Wheels HQ in Los Angeles. The broadcast starts at 1PM PDT, and can be watched at www.beam.pro/forzamotorsport.
