The first major expansion for Forza Horizon 3 will be released on the 13th of December. Playground Games has teased us before with a picture of a Lamborghini standing on an icy surface so we knew something in a cold environment was coming.
Get the snow tires ready and pack your best parka, because Blizzard Mountain beckons! The Blizzard Mountain Expansion for Forza Horizon 3 is coming Dec. 13 and bringing with it a Forza first – snow, ice, extreme elevations and blizzards to challenge players in their quest to become the King of the Mountain. Set amidst extreme alpine settings, players will explore a snowy mountain playground in eight new vehicles – including the 2016 Ford GYMKHANA 9 Focus RS RX – all in brand new race events that have been specifically designed for spectacular mountain racing.
I’ve been waiting for these kind of conditions in the Forza franchise for a long time so this is great news to me. I remember being impressed by all the the possible weather conditions in Project Gotham Racing 4. Although it’s a silly thing to do, it was so much fun skidding around in a RWD performance car on snowy tracks earning those sweet Kudos points. The following video wasn’t made by myself but if you haven’t played in on the 360 back then you might want to check it out.
But back to topic! There will be 28 new achievements adding up to a total 500 Gamerscore that you can earn on your trip to Blizzard Mountain. Now maybe you’re wondering how much this cold trip will set you back.
The Blizzard Mountain expansion for Forza Horizon 3 is available separately or as part of the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass, which gives players discounted access to two expansions for $34.99. Ultimate Edition owners receive a $10 discount on the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass if purchased before the end of 2016.
