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.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
